December 2, 2019
December is off to a great start. We are almost done now as far as we can go with the website until we choose which location we want. As of today we are having to check out a "legal clause" in a lease agreement with another pet place to make sure we won't compete with them, and the way it seems (before an attorney looks at it) we are not, so we should be ok. Today, we got from the IRS our letter APPROVING us for 501(C)(3) Status, so we are now officially a non-profit organization. We are now hoping to launch our website release to the general public and fund raising by Thursday, December 5th. So we will see what happens.

Tomorrow, the website will officially launch publicly. We are into Googles Search Engine, and slowly populating into others. We will be contacting all of our friends via Facebook to start, and we just got our new mailers (8.5" X 5.5" Postcards we are mailing out to family and friends all across the U.S. So, December 7th, is the kickoff of our Fund Raising for our new facility for the next few months. We're excited to see what happens. $650K needs to be raised to have all expenses paid for the 1st year (including all vet equipment, cafe equipment, furnishings, lighting, build out and salaries for all staff for the 1st year. This way we have a year to generate monies for the 2nd year of operation, and will always be 1 year ahead with our expenses for our cause.
