Paw Parent has Reached a Tipping Point!
I am joining the Strut your Mutt campaign again this year with a very lofty goal to raise $10,000. For 11 years I have facilitated Paw Parent's steady growth,which was only made possible by donations of loyal supporters. For those 11 years I have worked tirelessly to rescue desperate animals in need, more often than not shouldering the 24/7 care of these helpless creatures alone. Paw Parent now has an average of 50 dogs and cats under its care at any given time.
As much as I have enjoyed being able to fulfill my dream which has allowed me to give hundreds of unwanted dogs and cats a safe haven over the years, the 14-hour work days, 7 days a week have taken their toll on me physically and emotionally.
As of last year, I had to hire extra help to care for all the animals. After all, isn’t this what it’s all about, to be able to shower the animals with the love and attention they need and deserve? My goal for Strut Your Mutt to raise $10,000 this year is ambitious – but Paw Parent needs the money to offset the expense of staffing the facility, so I don’t have to face the dilemma of shouldering most of the work alone anymore.
Because of its remote location, Paw Parent cannot attract the volunteers shelters in the city and suburbs enjoy. I do my best to accommodate those who are willing to donate their time and talents, but unfortunately, these are few and far between.
Paw Parent currently has an excellent team of caring and responsible employees, but funds must be raised to continue meeting the modest salaries of these animal loving people.
Additionally, we are still a skeleton crew seeing to the feeding, exercising, cleaning and veterinary care of our charges as well as staffing adoption events, and we could definitley use more help.
Paw Parent has now reached a tipping point – either I can raise more operational funds through the generosity of those who believe in the importance of my work, or I must curtail the number of animals I can rescue and care for every day.
I want to ensure Paw Parent can maintain its current capacity, or even grow more.
Now more than ever am I in need of your help to keep Paw Parent up and running!
Please contributte with a generous donation or even better by joining my team to help raise funds for Paw Parent's future. Your donation is tax deductible and Paw Parent keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees.
Thank you for your kind support!
