The Boon Supply Catalog & Online Fundraiser

The Boon Supply (formerly Mixed Bag Designs) Catalog & Online Fundraiser is underway! Seller packets with catalogs and order forms are available in the shelter lobby. Sample reusable bags are on display in the lobby for you to view.

There are 3 ways to shop, by CATALOG, ONLINE, & TEXT.

CATALOG orders must be returned to me no later than August 31. Checks must be made payable to Branford Compassion Club. There is no sales tax on catalog items, but there is a shipping charge of $1 per item. You must add in $1 on the order form for every item purchased.

For ONLINE orders go to boonsupply.com/949093. Our Fundraising ID is 949093. Please NOTE: Online shopping orders charge sales tax & a shipping fee. The purchases will be shipped directly to the purchaser’s home. ONLINE shopping runs until December 31.

Buyers also have the option to TEXT. TEXT 949093 to 888-886-0998. Buyers will be charged sales tax and shipping fee and purchases will be shipped directly to purchaser’s home.

So it’s less expensive to order from the catalog, since catalog orders do not charge sales tax. However, its more convenient to shop online, since the purchaser will get their orders shipped directly.

Thanks in advance for your help & support!

*Branford Compassion Club will receive 40% of every purchased item.

Kitten season is here and we need your help!

Dear Friends of the Branford Compassion Club:

Kitten season is here and we need your help! Although the kittens are adorable, the large numbers of moms and babies coming into our shelter, places a great financial burden on our already limited resources!

Each Momma Cat and kitten needs to be vaccinated and neutered or spayed, greatly increasing our veterinary bills over the next few months! We also experience an increased expense, that is supply related – food, litter and cleaning, etc.!

How can you help support these adorable babies and their moms?

DONATE NOW
Make your donation to the Branford Compassion Club here via Paypal using your debit or credit card (or your Paypal account). You may make a one-time donation, or click on “Make this a monthly donation” to make a recurring payment.

We need your support to make sure we can continue our mission to neuter, vaccinate, test and provide medical intervention for every feline that passes through our doors!

Thank you!

Mark Your Calendar for Animal Awareness Day!

Save the date!

Branford Compassion Club will host its annual Animal Awareness Day, featuring the Blessing of the Animals, Sunday, October 6, 2019, rain or shine, on the Branford Green from 12 noon to – 4 p.m.

We had a great time last year and had much positive feedback. We realize the event could not have happened without the generosity and support of our sponsors, vendors and nonprofit and rescue groups who brought their talents and compassion for animals to the Green so we are extremely grateful to all of our supporters in the local community. We hope you will join us!  We will be looking for sponsors, vendors of all types, as well as rescue groups – if you know anyone who would like to become a sponsor, or would like to rent table/booth space, please have them contact me directly.

Spread the word about this celebration of the furry, feathered, scaly and finned members of our families – a Petoctoberfest of music, food, bake sale, special kids’ activities, surprises, education and awareness and just plain FUN for all.
