Donate

Donate

If you feel so inclined as to help us with costs, it would be greatly appreciated. We have a lot of supporters, but with the responsibilities and vision that we have, it requires a hefty price tag. Donations go towards covering day-to-day operations, food, medications, surgeries, vaccinations and more. Even just $1 could help us, and that donation is tax deductible. (If everyone in both regions we serve donated $1, it would cover almost all of our vet costs over the past 15 years, for some perspective.) Donations can be made through PayPal or by sending a check via snail mail to our mailing address.

Donation Items*

We do accept donations on a limited basis from people. Items such as unopened bags of food and treats are always welcome. Unused beds, toys and tethers are also appreciated. Due to risk of disease, we will only accept kennels and cages if they are unused or have been bleached - or are still in a state of being salvageable. We also accept donations of items that we can use to raffle off or include in gift baskets to raffle. We tend to especially need these when we have upcoming larger events such as trivia nights or our dog washes.

* Please contact us first to make sure we have space for your donation. We also want to be sure that someone is present to accept the donation and issue a receipt.

Transportation

We sometimes need help transporting that dog back to one of our foster homes from a location that is outside of our normal pull area. Many times these dogs in these areas are relying on us and us alone to help save their lives - and you can be a part of that simply by donating your time and vehicle to helping transport them to us. We also sometimes seek aid for transporting animals for other organizations. Your time donated to help these animals is just as appreciated as it helps us achieve our goal of saving lives and making happy tails.

Other Helpful Means

There are many other ways to help, and we appreciate all help we receive. One of the biggest ways to help is by fostering a dog. By opening up your home to a dog that has none, you're giving them the chance they need to make it to their furever home. It is not only one of the biggest ways to help us, but is the biggest way to help the dogs. Even signing on as a temporary foster goes a long way. Spreading word of rescue events, and rallying behind animal welfare also helps us immensely as it's the spread of awareness that truly makes the most difference. Without people that support us and stand behind us, we couldn't continue to do what we do today.

Become a Volunteer

Even if you can't foster, volunteers are integral to our function and mission. It takes many volunteers to put on events, coordinate transports, and aid in ensure those tails keep waggin'!

Become a Foster

Fosters provide the temporary home that is the safe haven for a rescued pet. For many, that could be their first taste of a second chance at life. Our fosters play an integral role in that story.

One Last Thing

Perhaps the biggest thing to help is understanding rescue: it takes a lot of effort, a lot of time and people. We value all of our volunteers, all of our supporters, all of the donations that are sent in. We appreciate all of it. If you'd like to learn of more ways to help, you can do so by simply reading more on our site, or by chatting with us. Or hey, if you'd like to do a little more than chat, you can like or follow us on social media.
