Time for some math.
Not my favorite subject (the only thing I want to count is jelly bean toes on kittens) but I hope this helps put things in perspective.
Jen’s Kitty Rehab has to turn down on average 100 cats a week.
100 cats x 52 weeks = 5,200 cats.
Routine vetting at the lowest cost (just altering and vaccinations) is $55.
This does not include any other care such as injuries, additional vetting, food, litter, or anything else.
5,200 cats x $55 = $286,000
It would take at the bare minimum over a quarter of a million dollars to help all the cats that we have to turn away.
Now, add in the fact that the cats also like to eat, have a litter box and somewhere safe to sleep.
Each cat stays a different amount of time but assuming that each cat uses $20 in supplies (an extremely conservative number) that adds an additional cost.
5,200 x $20= $104,000
Now, let’s add that together.
$286,000 + $104,000 = $390,000
That’s a big number.
I wish we could help every cat.
I wish we didn’t have to turn anybody away.
Cat rescue is expensive.
Injured cats. Sick cats. Momma kitties with kittens.
It all adds up so fast.
Please do your part.
Spay and neuter your pets.
Everybody can do something.
A moment for the kitties, y’all.
Please complete your census!
We. All. Count!
Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)
Claim Filing System Is Now Available
The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services has announced that the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) claim filing system for workers who have lost employment due to COVID-19 is now available.
Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is a program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 that provides temporary income to eligible individuals who became unemployed as a result of the novel COVID-19 pandemic and are either self-employed, do not have sufficient work history to be eligible for a claim, or have exhausted other forms of unemployment insurance benefits. It is funded by the federal government, not by state unemployment taxes paid by employers.
Click here: https://pua.arkansas.gov/home to file online 7 days a week between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
To qualify for greater than the minimum PUA weekly benefit amount of $133, you will need to provide proof of wages and earning information for 2019, which may include:
• 2019 Federal Tax Return
• 1099 Forms for 2019 - Miscellaneous Income
• W-2 Form for 2019
