Expense List

To those who have helped the little ones here, thank you! We appreciate it so much.

The economic squeeze that so many of us are experiencing has resulted in just a trickle of previous Assisi donations. So many are losing their homes, and homes for their pets. The demand for our no kill shelter services has never been greater. 

You may donate immediately using your credit card or check (links left).

 Or Click Here to Contact Assisi. Please see the bottom of this page too.

Please help these over 250 little ones in the Assisi no kill shelter. The cats and dogs that cannot be adopted to well screened loving homes (age, illness, et cetera) will stay here their entire natural lives. Assisi is operated mostly by a handful of volunteers as we have done for twenty years.

Present urgent needs (if met the need will be removed):

Sprinkler system (fire)

Gift cards for services, merchandise, or dining (for Assisi auctions and fundraising events, money that goes for the cats and dogs here),

Unused postage stamps for Assisi mailing purposes,

Veterinary bill help, as a no kill shelter this is a huge expense,

Laundry (detergents, bleach) we run the machines day and night,

Towels and scatter rugs (no rubber backing please),

Cat "furniture,"

Pedigree brand canned dog food,

Friskies brand canned cat food,

Printer cartridges (HP95 and 98),

Heartguard canine heartworm preventive,

Revolution doses,

And more.


Ongoing "routine" expenses:

So many wonderful people contact us and ask how they can help since they are not able to volunteer. We thought it would be fun to list the approximate dollar amounts of some Assisi expenses. You'll be able to see some of the expenses that are required to care for all the cats and dogs in their beautiful, no-kill shelter in the country. We have been operating this award winning, no-kill shelter since 1985.

Through PayPal, Assisi accepts your immediate secure donation over the Internet right now!

All the information you enter at our secure PayPal credit card site is encrypted (or scrambled, so even Einstein couldn't figure it out) and can't be viewed by others.

You will immediately be sent an e-mail receipt for your donation.

PayPal is very easy to use and completely secure. I have used these services. The ease of use and security exceeded my expectations. Please try it, you will have no problems.

Thanks for your consideration. We so much appreciate your help!
