Our California non-profit, We Are Sentience, has two missions: spiritual outreach through satsangs and websites, and feeding and maintaining feral cat colonies in LA.
During 2011, WAS supplied the following for feeding and maintaining approximately 300 cats:
291 16 to 20 lb. bags of dry food, for a total weight of over 4,700 lbs.
8,200 cans of cat food, mostly Friskies.
$2,100 worth of vet fees to spay/neuter and other vet bills
Total expenses on feral cat maintenance and placement $9,007. This is likely a substantial underestimate, as many times I’d pick up small and unrecorded amounts on a daily basis from a supermarket.
The balance of donations went to support spiritual outreach which includes website costs, software, etc.
