What we aim to solve New!

Obtaining the funding for infrastructure and development and animal daily care and veterinary costs. So far 90% of all expenses has been self funded. Attempting to get necessary funding has proven next to impossible. Banks, Local Fundraising, Reaching out to People with Means and Social Media have all been fruitless with valuable time wasted when providing animal care is of number one priority.

The ultimate gaol for WKK is the Kritter Kountry Refuge. This one of a kind refuge will provides a life home safe haven for cats, exotic pets and farm animals. Animals with medical, physical and behavioral conditions which have been abused, abandoned, injured or confiscated. Those animals turned away by other rescues and shelters deemed un-adoptable. The WKK Refuge will fill a critical gap and help at risk animals while providing a more humane and educated community.

National organizations have a greater ability to tap resources because of their resources. For Community organizations it is a much more arduous process as resources are smaller especially in rural area. However it is the community organizations that can have the greatest impact. We have a team of top notch animal specialists with a unique mission and goal. We differ from most rescue organizations as we fill a critical gap in the animal rescue movement.

Special needs animals require more than just basic day to day. They require special diets, medications and treatments. Exotic pets require special care and enclosures. Our team has had numerous years of working with, in and around many shelters, rescues and veterinary hospitals. When care guidelines are not maintained, it's the animals that suffer. There has to a balance between numbers of animals and quality of care. WKK aims to serve and help as many Special Needs cats and exotic pets as possible but will not exceed a capacity which would affect quality of care. This is why there is such a tremendous need for expansion of the Whisker Kisses Refuge.

WKK is located to 10 acres in Oldtown, Idaho. A rural community with a strong need for animal rescue. We have made an impact locally rescuing hundreds of animals. We have and currently provide for 35 permanent special needs cats and exotic pets. A business plan with detailed budget and preliminary design plans have been completed. Attempting to purchase an additional 10 acres next door. However to raise the funds necessary for land and refuge development, it will require sponsorship funding from outside sources. To date all efforts for acquiring funding has been fruitless. Attempting to obtain the funding via an SBA loan through my sister business, Kritter Kountry.
