Does anyone have any good(and fast!) fundraiser ideas? One of my ferals has showed up with a horrible eye infection. I was going to wait and see if it cleared up on it's own, as it often does with my ferals, but it's only getting worse. I've got to get him to the vet, but I've had so many unexpected vet bills lately that I don't have the funds to cover the bill! Anyone have and ideas at all for me? I've got to find a way to help him! I've had the feral cat program that I rent my trap from offer to give me help, but I really hate to accept thier money unless there is absoulutly no way I can raise the money myself. I do have a website with things for sale, but it's had no success-Anyone got any ideas for me? The vet bill is likely to be near $100, depending on what's wrong. Just an office visit and exam is $35, plus they'll probably have to sedate him to look at the eye, and that runs $50!

Ask your vet if you can make payments instead of paying it all at once. First I'd suggest you getting your feral inside in a secure warm room. Clean the eye with a warm cloth as often as you can - even if it is against the cats will. Apply flea-meds as soon as possible so to not spread fleas to your other pets.
I'd accept the offer from the cat program, and pay them back when you can (since you really dont want to take their money, it'll make you feel better).
Make a web site dedicated to your ferals and give them donation information, such as address and if you accept checks and money orders. Also if you use paypal, there is a button you can add that says "Make Donation" that you can put on your Web site.
Goal for donations is one thing - get the word out.
