Our first fundraiser!

Our first fundraiser!

We just got accepted to the largest nonprofit fundraising group called Global Giving, which is a huge deal for us. Yay!! Starting now, (!) we have 16 days to raise at least $5,000 to maintain a permanent spot on the roster. I think it’s totally do-able, but we are going to need as much help as we can get.

Our project is building a refuge for senior dogs of the area. It will be a structure, both indoor and outdoor, that can house up to 30 elderly dogs that have been rescued so we can care for them, get them back to health, and then adopt them out to good homes.

We are asking for your support. It could be as little or as much as you want. Also, if you know anyone who may be interested in the cause, it would be amazingly helpful if you could tell them about it. It’s a 501c3 organization and totally tax deductible.

To all our supporters: Apologies for no updates. We have been dealing with ongoing legal issues of fraud, embezzlement, etc. and it has completely derailed our progress 🙁

We thank, love and appreciate you all and hope our journey can continue.
