Help Us Focus on Pet Wellness, Not Interest
In October 2024, Gem City Kitties will have to refinance our mortgage on Gem City Vet. As many of you are likely aware, interest rates are sky-high, and most commercial loans involve adjustable-rate mortgages, which could put us at risk of paying even higher interest rates again in 5 years. With a 15-year loan, we would pay around $57,000 in fees over the life of the $80,000 loan. That's a LOT of lost program support.
Instead, we'd like to pay off the mortgage - and that's where you and this campaign can make an enormous difference! We seek to raise $80,000 to pay off the mortgage in full, freeing us up from a monthly payment and all of that interest. $57,000 could be much better spent helping us:
• Continue to offer $15 wellness exams and affordable vaccines starting at $8 (among our many other services - viewable at gemcityvet.org/pricing).
• Educate pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering and connecting them with resources in our area
• Keep wanted pets healthy and in their homes, instead of shelters
Can you help us raise $80,000 so we can pay off the mortgage and focus on creating a more compassionate community for cats (and now dogs!) in Dayton, OH?
