FAQ: Does CARA charge a Speaker Fee? Posted on Monday, 2 July 2018
There is no speaker fee–our speakers are all volunteers–but we do encourage you to donate to CARA. There are several ways to donate:
Donation of one or more of the following: canned dog food and/or cat food, dry dog food and cat food, cat litter, other pet stuff (but not shampoo/soap as CARA already has enough of this).
“Pass the hat” among attendees, students, teachers.
Outright monetary donation. A school may write a letter to the parents to encourage them to donate.
The donated items are then collected over a period of time, say two weeks prior to the visit. If more donations come in after the visit, then a CARA representative can pick them up later.
Donations will help fund the medical and food expenses of the needy pets under our care.
In the next weeks, expect a series of informational posts featuring questions that are frequently asked of CARA. We hope this will help clarify some issues and concerns about what CARA is and what we do.
