If you post the Chipin URL, I can network it to a couple of donation and feral cat Yahoo groups. Also, look on Red Rover's ``other financial assistance" page for other resources (their program is for life-threatening situation aid). You can also Google something like "pet medical financial assistance" to see if anything else comes up. I have pages of lists, very unorganized, so this may be a more up-to-date and complete way to start. Also, if you put up a Facebook page for them, with some pictures (no exact location, of course) that would help. And send some pictures for the email donation pleas, too.
Hope this helps. On Sun, Oct 21, 2012 at 9:26 AM, dot winkler <venus7ora...@yahoo.com> wrote: > Hi.
