Although our visibility has grown substantially, nothing could be further from the truth. We are a very small organization that relies completely on the generosity of others. Your individual donations are extremely important and greatly appreciated and the extraordinary support of our partner stores has allowed us to ensure no animal goes hungry.
As we closed 2020, it came as no surprise that many animal rescue organizations were put in a tough spot during the COVID-19 outbreak. To say this year has been “ruff,” is an understatement. Stray animals still need a place to go; the animals in care still need food, medical care, and new homes; and volunteer animal foster parents still need support. Public events were cancelled and many programs and opportunities became virtual events or have been paused.
Fundraising is of even greater importance these days and, because of your generosity, homeless animals received shelter, food, and life-saving veterinary care this year. Through your support, we were able to rescue and make a direct difference in the lives of 10 dogs.
Please let us know if you have any questions, we are always happy to answer them. We believe in accountability and trasnparency.
