there may be donor benefits for giving Assisi all kinds of property. Assisi may
be able to accept your car, truck, boat, fine jewelry, quality art work, or other
property, including real estate, and sell it. The proceeds go to Assisi and you
get a "non-profit gift tax deduction."
the value of the a donor's tax deduction is a greater "bottom line"
financial gain to the donor than an outright owner's sale (if you factor in advertising,
taxes, time spent, et cetera). Helping all the little ones at the Assisi cageless
and no-kill shelter is an immeasurable benefit. We recommend you speak with your
tax advisor for specific details and advice.
contact Assisi to discuss the details of your donation.
Scratching Posts and Cat Trees
you're handy with tools and raw materials, you can build a scratching post or
cat tree for the shelter.
best scratching posts are 3 feet tall (two 2x4's fastened together) with a wide
wooden base (18"x18") and wrapped with sisal or manila rope. Contrary
to popular belief, carpet is not the best thing to wrap around scratching posts.
Cats prefer tough, rough material with more resistance than carpet. Also contrary
to popular belief, scratching posts should not be short; they should be tall enough
for cats to stretch out vertically to their fullest extent.
you are interested in building a cat tree, please contact us to find out the dimensions
to which the cat tree should be built. You may want to make an appointment to
visit the shelter and take measurements.
