Recycle via Oregon BottleDrop
How about helping CCR and also the Earth at the same time?
Cat's Cradle Rescue is now registered with the State sponsored bottle deposit program, BottleDrop, whereby CCR will receive bottle deposit returns to our account from the public. Here are how you can do this:
1. Pick up a "BLUE BAG" with an attached barcode label from our adoption event, and fill it up with empty bottles to return to one of the many return locations listed on the BottleDrop website here. Simply put the blue bag(s) to the direct return opening and those funds will automatically be credited to our account. It really just takes seconds! Note: Each bag costs CCR about 50 cents to process, so try and fill it up as much as you can!
2. Go to a Main bottle return location (the ones with green markers on the map), return your bottles then specify the return deposit funds go to CCR.
3. Already have a BottleDrop account (find out how to get one here)? Even better! Simply go to the BottleDrop website here, find "Cat's Cradle Rescue" (or any other local charities you want to support) using the search bar, log into your existing account and you can send the funds our way.
Kitty Wish List
Besides opening up their homes and hearts for the kitties in need, our foster families also provide food and supplies necessary to keep our foster cats and kittens healthy and happy. Your generous donation will help ease their burden and enable us to save more lives.
For the health of our cats and the long-term benefits of quality food, we feed a mostly Grain-Free diet. In general, we avoid any cat or kitten food that has meat by-products, corn, soy or wheat. If you would like to donate food, please choose a brand free of these.
- Royal Canin Baby & Mother Cat canned and dry
- Blue Buffalo Kitten Healthy Growth
- Petcurean Brand dry (Now, Gather, Go)
- Weruva “Cats in the Kitchen”
- Solid Gold dry
The following items are also needed on an ongoing basis:
- Cat litter (clay or corn natural litter)
- Dr.Elsey’s (multiple types) clumping
- Cardboard scratchers and cat dancers
- Carriers - can be new or gently used
- Gift certificates to local Pet Stores for small amounts
Donation items may be dropped off or shipped to this address: 1982 NE 25th Avenue, Unit 2, Hillsboro, OR 97124. If we're lucky enough to possibly receive a large shipment of supplies from you or your company, please contact us directly to coordinate the best logistical drop-off or pick-up.
