We find new, loving “forever homes” for the pets of terminally ill owners. Prior to adoption, we place the pet in a caring foster home and provide all the care needed for their health and wellness. The “Hard Times Pet Care Fund” provides TLC for our foster pets in the form of grooming, veterinary care, training and other needs affecting their quality of life.
While families are dealing with the complexities and sorrows of managing a terminal illness, we offer peace of mind to our clients and their pets. We have no paid staff, but a dedicated board and many volunteers who each possess unique skills, a strong work ethic and a tremendous compassion and respect for the people and pets that they serve. Our extremely low overhead means more than 90 cents from every dollar directly benefit the animals in our care.
Thanks for giving us your birth year. There is a special matching grant available to the organization in each category that garners the most donations from folks in their 20's and 30's. One of the big focuses of this campaign is to encourage younger citizens to become more active donors.
When Give! ends at the stroke of midnight, December 31, 2012, our goal is to have raised more than $800,0000 -- that's $100,000 more than we raised last year. To help us on our way, generous local businesses, foundations and individuals have pledged more than a quarter million dollars in Matching Grants and Friendly Competition Awards for our 58 participating nonprofits.
