Thank you for visiting my Strut Your Mutt fundraising page!
As most of my friends and family know, I volunteer for a fantastic rescue - Georgetown Animal Outreach ("GAO"). Last year GAO rescued and adopted out 87 dogs and 14 cats! Please help me reach my small goal of $300 to donate funds towards an organization that is so close to my heart.
Let me tell you a little bit about our fabulous GAO TNR team! Our TNR team manages about 10 community cat colonies (that is 40+ cats) all over Georgetown that requires a lot of DAILY volunteer support to ensure that the cats live the best lives possible! In addition to managing the 10 communities, our team traps approximately 100 cats and kittens per year in a variety of situations for individuals, community cats, and cats living on private property. Each of those cats are taken to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and medically treated. That's a lot of hard work, y'all!
Let me tell you about Diesel! Diesel was born in GAO four or five years ago. Since he was born he has been in three different homes. The first returned him because as it turns out, they were not ready for a puppy. In the second instance his adopter was suffering from medical problems and could no longer take care of him to the best of her ability and it broke her heart to return him. The third, well lets just say that Diesel hit the jack pot with his third home.
He lived with two other dogs, one being his litter mate, Weezy! He ate the best food and got to go on MANY adventures. Shortly after being adopted Diesel was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer and recently had to be put to sleep because his pain was becoming unmanagable. GAO and Diesel's adopters loved Diesel fiercly and we are were tremendously sad to see him go at such a young age.
All of this to tell you that GAO keeps their promise of taking care of an animal for their life - whether it is a dog we've adopted out or a cat we take care of in one of the colonies. Diesel's life was short but GAO is committed to each and every animal that we adopt out in the exact same way. Help me support GAO so they can continue staying committed to animals for life!
This fundraiser goes on until September, so you have plenty of time to donate even $1 towards the dogs and cats of this amazing rescue! Anything you donate is tax-deductible so keep the receipt!
Together, we can Save Them All.
