Adoption Centre Project

Maneki Neko Adoption Centre Project

The $500 Project

We need your help!

Our Vision is to create a shop front centre focused specifically on cat adoptions and welfare.

The Maneki Neko Adoption Centre will provide the facilities for:

  • adoptions (including those from other rescue groups),
  • fundraising (retail sales), and
  • education & resources for all rescue groups (bulk purchasing, fundraising, etc).

As well as the capacity to expand to offer:

  • veterinary services,
  • grooming services, and
  • alternative medicine services e.g. Animal Communicators, Acupuncture etc.

A detailed business plan is currently being developed with an aim to establish the centre in late 2015.

This will not be a shelter and all of our cats will continue to be cared for in homes with foster carers.

We are asking volunteers to raise $500 (or more) in the next 6 months.  Our collective goal is to raise $50 000!

There are lots of ways to do this and we will show you how.

Some of our volunteers have already done this and it is not so hard, right?

Sign up and raise $500  and these rewards will be yours:

  • The knowledge that you have done something PAWESOME that will improve the welfare outcomes for cats in Victoria,
  • In store acknowledgement as a founding donor to the Maneki Neko Adoption Centre (we are not sure what this will look like but you will be acknowledged – this could be your name, someone you want to contribute on behalf of (children, grandchildren) and/or in memory of a beloved pet),
  • An exclusive invitation to our Grand Opening for you and your family as our guests of honour, and
  • Access to discounted merchandise, food and other products.
