All of us here at the Petfinder Foundation want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated to our “You Can Do This” campaign with the Animal Rescue Site and What You Can Do. Our goal was to raise $50,000 for homeless pets in just 50 days, $5 at a time. Thanks to you, we raised more than $56,000!
Your donations will go straight back to animal shelters and rescue groups to help them make their pets happy, healthy and more adoptable. Pets like Miracle, pictured below. Here are just a few examples of what we can accomplish.
With $56,000, we can:
- Vaccinate 22,400 shelter dogs or 28,000 shelter cats against contagious diseases
- Spay or neuter 2,240 shelter pets, preventing hundreds of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens
- Transport 560 dogs from overcrowded shelters to regions where they’ll be adopted
- Train 5,600 shelter dogs in basic social skills to help them impress potential adopters
- Build new cat play areas at 140 shelters so thousands of cats can get out of their cages
- Provide nutritious meals to 11,200 shelter pets for one day
- Buy beds so 5,600 shelter dogs don’t have to sleep on concrete floors
- Buy 11,200 toys to help shelter pets relieve stress and boredom while waiting for forever homes
We have been truly blown away by your generosity and we want you to know how grateful we are, and how much your donations really will make a difference in the lives of thousands of pets in need.
Thank you again from all of us at Petfinder.
