R.O.A.R. to Save Stray Puppies from Lives of Fear

Give to us through Global Giving through Nov. 12 and have double the impact for homeless dogs like Bonnie.

You’ll help save twice as many stray puppies like Bonnie (pictured) from lives filled with danger and fear when you donate to us through Global Giving from through Nov. 12.

During that time only, Animal Planet’s R.O.A.R. is matching donations to the Petfinder Foundation dollar-for-dollar (learn more about the campaign here). That means your gift will help save more homeless pets like Bonnie, whom the Humane Society of McCormick County in McCormick, S.C., recently took in.

Volunteer Judy Haywood tells us how our grant helped the group pay for exams and vaccinations for 29 dogs and cats. It also fully funded the cost of health exams, spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations for Bonnie and her siblings Tucker, Hooch, Bootsie and Bart:

“In March, we trapped a litter of five dogs. They were all shy of people and other dogs and were about 4 months old. Two were taken into foster homes to help socialize them with people and dogs. The remaining three eventually overcame some of their shyness with the help of another friendly dog at the pens and some very patient volunteers. Two of the three puppies at the pens went through six weeks of training at PetSmart that dramatically helped their social skills and confidence. They are still waiting to be adopted but they are now spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their shots, and healthy.”

Judy continues: “We are an all-volunteer group that does not receive any public money, so we constantly have to fundraise in order to keep picking up and adopting out dogs and cats in our county. This money was very appreciated.”

Bonnie, her siblings and many other pets across North America have been helped by our Shelter+ Challenge by The Animal Rescue Site grant program, supported by and your generous donations.

Donate to us through Global Giving through Nov. 12 to double your impact!
