Each year in its annual survey, Cuvilly families are asked what they would never want to change about our preschool and that answer is always the animals.
On April 15, 16, & 17, my classmates and I will be participating in the annual Hop-a-thon to help our school’s animals. Each of us will do as many hops as we can in one timed minute to raise necessary funds to care for our beloved creatures.
As you may know my preschool, located in Ipswich, Massachusetts, is farm-based and nature-based. Cuvilly is home to many animals whom we all adore and learn from each day. Our animal pals include four dogs, two cats, two pigs, two alpacas, three horses, one pony, one donkey, four sheep, three goats, five roosters, three geese, 10 ducks and 30 chickens. Their care and upkeep requires more money than you’d imagine! Because these animals are so special to me, I want to hop as many times as I can to help support them. But I also need your help.
Please consider supporting me before then with a pledge donation! Each and every dollar goes to feeding, sheltering and caring for our animal critters.
In addition to labor costs, these are the expenses to keep our Cuvilly animals housed, fed, safe, healthy, and happy:
$9,000. annually to feed our animals their specific diets
$14,000. annually for hay – their main food source and a necessary means of warmth
$6,500 for the year for shavings and wood pellets to keep their living quarters clean
$3,000 for the veterinarian
Can’t donate? Please share. Even a quick share on Facebook can help.
The average share raises $97.
