EXPENSES – CAT BEACH SANCTUARY*
* Please note: Charts and Calculations shown on this page are not yet confirmed by professional accountants or auditors and therefore subject to correction or change.
With a basis from our 2017 and 2018 Expenses for Cat Beach Sanctuary (chart above), the current Operating Budget necessarily reflects the greater number of cats and kittens under care. Cat Beach reached a capacity of care of approximately 300 cats and kittens in July 2018 and has maintained that approximate count through 2019 and 2020, Hardly a day goes by without another request for Cat Beach to take in a cat in need of rescue from a dangerous or emergency situation.
To meet the ever increasing demand, Cat Beach has had to invest in people to be the caregivers for the cats — renting accommodations where cat lover volunteers can stay and increasing stipends for meals and other incidentals. Significantly, the amount of cat food consumed daily has increased steadily as have the electric, water and other utilities costs. Weather, insects, and wear-and-tear continually deteriorate the property so repairs and renovations are crucial. Meantime, veterinary expenses and medications continue to be major costs with added expenses for transport to and from the veterinary clinics.
The future for Cat Beach and the rescued Cats depends on increasing income from all sources, especially donations but also other income streams. Current efforts are focused on engaging with cat lovers who can donate monthly funds or food in support. Tourism and educational programs can provide new income. Sales of items and services also offer additional income. Social enterprises and partnerships with companies like Gold-D / AHA and Miya Co House of All Things Cat can bring in new resources for long-term sustainability.
Current estimates are that expenses total about
RM 30,000 per month ($7,250 USD. 6,230 Euro).
