Join Cat Depot's Monthly Giving Program to Make a Difference for Cats in Need
When you become a Furever Friend your monthly tax-deductible donation will help Cat Depot provide much needed care for our feline friends.
Your recurring gift will help us provide housing in our state-of-the-art pods, food, litter, spay/neuter, medical care, rehabilitation, and social development for hundreds of homeless, wounded, and abandoned cats and kittens.
Fresh Step Paw Points
Every year, Fresh Step donates over 1 million scoops of litter to shelters around the country. Want to help? You can donate your Paw Points® to Cat Depot, and we’ll use them for free litter, cat beds, and other necessities.

Shop and Sell on eBay
eBay Giving Works – Shop, Sell or Donate for a Good Cause
Cat Depot is a participating nonprofit in the eBay Giving Works program. You can support the Cat Depot mission when you buy and sell on eBay.
You can find whatever you’re looking for on eBay — from baseball cards to new cars and more. When you do, shop for items that benefit Cat Depot. You can get a great deal and support Cat Depot’s mission at the same time!
You can also support Cat Depot when you sell on eBay. Just designate our organization to receive 10-100% of your final sale price the next time you list something great.
Did you know that charity listings often get more bids and higher prices than regular eBay listings? Boost your sales and support our critical work while you’re at it! Plus eBay gives back to you too, with a fee credit on your basic selling fees.
Workplace Giving / Corporate Matching
Employer matching gifts are a great way to double your gift to Cat Depot!
Check with your employer to see if they offer matching gifts for charities, then complete and send your section of the matching gift form provided by your employer — we’ll handle the rest! If you’ve already made your donation, you can still send us the completed matching gift form, and we’ll verify it directly with your employer.
Please email matching gift forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Cat Depot at 2542 17th Street, Sarasota, FL 34234
If you have any questions about matching gifts, please call us at 941-366-2404 or send us an email.
Host an Event or Fundraiser
Cat Depot always appreciates when our supporters and local businesses want to host fundraising events on our behalf. These events help to raise critical funds without adding to our expenses, and move us that much closer towards our mission of changing the destiny of homeless cats.
We call these ‘third party events” because while Cat Depot is the beneficiary, YOU are the one managing the event. Previous event examples include partnerships with restaurants, art events, and trunk shows.
For additional information, please contact Hilarie King at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support!
