$30K in 30 Days Challenge

in 2 days and 12:04 hours.

Location:
Starts: September 1, 2015 @ 12:00 am
Ends: September 30, 2015 @ 11:59 pm

In 2014, the $30,000 in 30 Days Challenge was a huge success. We asked you all to give generously so that we could continue to care for the animals (always our top priority!) AND complete several major projects-- projects that had been put off for years (yes, even decades!) due to lack of funding. With your generous support, we received the funds we needed to get the projects done!

Now we’re asking you for another big boost.


This September, once again our goal is to raise $30K, which is roughly the amount it takes to provide care for all our shelter animals for 30 days. As you may know, it can cost between $200 and $300-- or even more-- to take care of an animal during its length of stay with us. That’s because once an animal is in our adoption program, we commit to finding that animal a permanent home, no matter how long it takes. The animal gets routine medical care and vaccinations, as well as any critical care it may need. All of this really adds up!

Right now, we’re just asking you to help raise the $30K to care for the animals.

Our FirstGiving page makes it easy for you raise funds by using your social networks. Please check it out, and help us by involving your friends and family in your passion for helping animals. With FirstGiving, you can create your own personal page and tell everyone why you are passionate about helping our shelter animals and ask them to support you in reaching the goal you set for yourself. (Plus, you may also donate directly.)

Last year, $30,000 felt like an impossibly high goal. We were stunned at the generous outpouring of support that had us not only reaching that goal, but surpassing it! This year, we know that raising another $30K will be a challenge, and we would never take attaining the goal for granted.

But we know with your passionate support... it can be done!

We know that if you donate at whatever level you can afford… continue to help us reach more people… and engage more people in our mission… once again we can reach $30,000 together!

As we always say, we can’t do all we do for the animals without you!

Get out the Give on #GivingTuesday

in 93 days and 12:05 hours.

Location:
Starts: December 1, 2015 @ 12:01 am
Ends: December 2, 2015 @ 12:01 am

First there was Black Friday... then Cyber Monday... now #GivingTuesday! For the third year, we're an official partner of #GivingTuesday, and we're helping to spread the word to "get out the give."

#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations. The idea is to make #GivingTuesday a part of our collective experience, much in the way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday became part of the cultural consciousness.

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as #GivingTuesday. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1. We encourage you to make a meaningful contribution in any way you wish.

If you would like to do a donation drive, please check out our wish list! Of course, monetary donations are always welcome.

The success of #GivingTuesday as a national movement depends on all of us! We encourage everyone to be involved with spreading the word and participating. Families and individuals are encouraged to be generous in whatever ways matter to them.
