How You Can Help

Gemini Farm is a very small, private rescue and sanctuary that is financed mainly by the owner’s retirement funds and donations.   We also have some wonderful people who appreciate the work we do and are contributing to the upkeep of the creatures that live here by  helping put a dent in the monthly feed bills.   Donations are used to improve the quality of the facilities, pay never ending veterinary bills and to allow us to use good quality foods for all our animals.  Donations are also used to help create outdoor safe spaces for feral cats, purchase holding cages (we love the two-story ferret nation cages for litters of kittens), purchase supplies such as food and water bowls, litter boxes, beds, toys and special treats for all that live here.

 

We also try very hard to help out our feral colony caretakers by giving them extra food, litter and other kitty supplies.  Our caretakers didn’t ask to be in charge of all the cats in their care.  They are kind hearted people who couldn’t turn their backs and cats in need and the suffering that occurs when a cat is abandoned on the side of the road.  Right now, we work with about 25 colonies and about 500 cats.  If you would like to donate to a colony, please let us know and we will make sure your donation purchases food and supplies for those in need.

Donations:

  • Animal Sponsorship:  Choose a particular animal from our site that you would like to support.   Your contribution would help defer medical and food costs.   Sponsors will be listed next to the animal they have chosen.
     

  • Monetary Donations:   You can make a general monetary donation to help with medical bills and all those little expenses that are incurred during and after the rescue of an animal.  General monetary donations can be given to a chosen vendor directly...feed store, pet supply store or veterinarian.   This would insure that your donation will be used exactly as you desire.
     

  • Food Donations:  We appreciate all food donations.   With our cat population alone currently close to 40, we are particularly looking for cat food, especially high quality brands like Innova or EVO.   Quality cat food is extremely expensive however we have found that the felines in our care, especially the kittens, do much better when fed these brands.  We provide feeding stations for our cats and keep them full at all times.  This does decrease the cat's desire to stalk and kill prey although it does not completely eliminate it.  The quality foods appear to reduce medical problems which ultimately cuts down on veterinary bills.  Although we try to feed our cats the above brands, when our budget permits, we will gladly accept all food donations.
