Your donation goes directly toward supporting our life-saving spay/neuter and foster programs. As an all-volunteer organization, we have very low overhead, and $0.93 of every $1 donated is spent on care for our cats. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. ICRA’s IRS tax exempt number is 94-3225519.
