Whisker Chatter

Back to School Thank Yous!

We need to send a huge thank you to Keith Davitt, a wonderful artist who sent us a really neat water feature for the cat enclosure. Now the kitties can have their Zen time! :)

Many thanks to Valerie Miller, who sent us a very generous donation in memory of her late kitty, Holly. Holly crossed the Rainbow Bridge this summer. We know she will be loved and missed. Thank you Valerie and Holly!

We’d also like to thank Skip Freeman for his continuous support and friendship to Duncan’s Place and the kitties!!

Adopt a kitty today–who else is going to eat your homework for you?

End of Summer DP News

The Linnea Foundation gave us a very nice donation. Thank you Opal, Andrea, Rose!!!

Thank you also to Don Carrol–he designed and built our cat enclosure and our shed for storing our food pantry, Dudley’s Delectables. The supplies were generously donated by Home Depot.

We got a nice check from the CSU cat care conference, which will help pay our kitties’ medical bills!

Jan and Bob Link gave us a great donation in memory of their Lucy, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge last month. :(

Cats Rule sent us a box of their great litter mats for the kitties. These mats really do work and keeps litter scatter down to a minimum, highly recommended!

We have a limited edition t-shirt coming out. These have been designed and donated by our new foster family, the Corteses. :)

We will be at the Pets and Vets expo at the Loveland Outlets September 18.

We are planning some fun group events:

Popovich Comedy Pet Theater tickets are $14, $12 or $8. If Duncan’s Place has a group of at least 10, we can get the $14 seats for $10 each. Group tickets go on sale beginning August 23 and require full payment at the time of purchase. Seating is assigned, so we would all sit together.

Midsummer Madness

Hello all,

We hope you are surviving the rains, or the sun, or whichever is currently bombarding you.

We’re having a crazy summer here at DPs, but first, some thank yous:

Linda Freeman, Lizzie’s mom, helped us pay off a huge chunk of our medical expenses. THANK YOU!

Also, Chris Begress made a very generous donation to us earlier this summer. THANK YOU!

Tiki Pet Products sent us a lot of probiotics, skin and coat conditioner, and other great supplements. Thanks, Tiki!


We just had a young calico kitten rescued from a Fort Collins by a good Samaritan. Sadly, a very ill homeless man had tried to drown her! We have medical care arranged for her, and are making room where no one else was able. She is about 6 months old, very sweet, and very grateful for her rescue!

Vaccine Clinic

Our next clinic will be this weekend, July 11 at the Loveland JAX from 2-4 pm.

Thank you to the Freeman family for their continued support!!!

Hot Summer Deals at DPs!

Duncan’s Place has designed a new face for fundraising! No longer will we spend more on fundraising than we bring in, no more will we spend countless hours getting nothing in return, and no more will we beg you for money at every turn.

Instead, thanks to an innovative friend of Duncan’s Place, we have come up with an alternative plan to raise funds, put smiles on your faces, and keep our fundraising efforts low key and manageable. So, what is the plan, you ask?

Ryan Peters is a friend of Duncan’s Place and she is also an Avon Representative. Now how does this help? Well, Avon has a very lucrative fundraising program that requires minimal time commitment, large financial rewards, and puts a smile on your face and a product in your hand!

Duncan’s Place has the opportunity to earn 40% of every ’sale’ using the attached flier at the end of this e-mail. We have chosen the Skin So Soft Bug Guard flier for our first fundraiser and we believe that this is the perfect time of year for it!

Skin So Soft Bug Guard is amazing! There are multiple types; Disappearing Color for the kids, Gentle Breeze for the adults, Expedition for you active folks, all with Sunscreen and Bug Repellent, and straight Bug Spray with Picaridin (the deet level of protection without the deet!).

Although not endorsed by Avon, horse owners have been known to google about their successes in using Bug Guard Spray with Picaridin to repel ticks, mites, midges, and mosquito. These formulas are long wearing and safe for persons of ALL ages; you should be protected all summer long!

On the Duncan’s Place Bug Guard Flier, you can see that there is a special deal for Duncan’s Place customers. We can order 2 for $12 (and NO TAX) on all Skin So Soft Bug Sprays/Sunscreen products and Duncan’s Place will earn 40% per order!

That means if we ’sell’ $1500 worth, we earn $600; this is an awesome deal and there is no minimum or maximum. We are super excited to get the word out about this fundraiser and we hope you’ll help, too! Our fundraising goal is: $6000. This means we take home $2,400 for the kitties!!

Please consider e-mailing the flier to your friends and family or printing it off and taking it to your work, networking meeting, kid’s soccer game, school, etc… The fundraiser runs from July 1 – July 31 and all orders and payments are due to Cathy Campbell by July 31, 2010! Please make out your check(s) to Duncan’s Place and if you’d like to pay by credit card, please plan to give your credit card information to Cathy as soon as possible.

We are also offering an incentive to those who help Duncan’s Place reach our fundraising goal: we have massages, products, and tons of goodies (and kitties…kidding!)!! Just contact Cathy to get more details.

So, instead of begging for handouts, we are putting much needed and usable products into your hands and still reaping the rewards! Yay for us! If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Campbell at duncansplace at yahoo dotcom or Ryan Peters at msryansavon at gmail dotcom.

Thanks for your help; you make the difference in the lives of so many furry felines!
