Precious Cat Litters

Precious Cat Litters

We'd like to thank Precious Cat Litters for their generous donation of litter!

CRAFT is CLOSED - Please Read for the Continuing Mission.

THE BIG SALE was a success - thanks to all who participated.

We still have a few items to sell.  A near-new dryer, a near-new dishwasher, and a washer/dryer set.   Please e-mail craftcats@bendbroadband.com if you are interested.

We also have a dining room set (6 chairs), oak desk & credenza, a glass-top patio table, and few other pieces of furniture.  Deeply discounted.  Otherwise they will be going to a nonprofit that has the ability to pick them up.

We still have a 'free' area at the property, with a variety of shelving, lumber and other items.

65480 78th St., Bend, off Highway 97 and Tumalo Road.

Other smaller items were donated to nonprofits, in particular the Humane Society of the Ochocos' thift shop in Prineville.  This shelter was the first and now remains the only no-kill shelter in Central Oregon and beyond.  They made this commitment years ago in spite of their struggle with inadequate facilities and with being out of the way, and do not benefit from all the free media attention and local support that the two big shelters in Deschutes County enjoy.  These big, newer shelters are NOT no-kill but certainly could make this a no-kill community, with their assets, resources and community support, if their directors felt this was important enough.

We will be selling our 2 can/bottle trailers and the 2 sheds used for processing and storage of cans/bottles.  We would prefer to sell these as a package to an appropriate nonprofit for their own can/bottle program.  This is a very steady source of income, but takes a small team to keep the trailers empty and to process the cans/bottles.  The recycling company provides the proper containers for sorting and picks up much of it.  (No one has to stand at the recycling depot.)
