SHARE:

We are overwhelmed with gratitude. Together, we raised over $99,000 for companion and wild animals in our community!

You Made #GivingTuesday PAWsome!

Hundreds of you came together to do more to support animals than any one person could do alone. Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered their time, engaged with us on social media, spread the word, or enjoyed the heartwarming tails we shared.

Because of you, not only did we meet our goal - we exceeded it! Together, we raised over $99,000 for companion and wild animals in our community. Thank you for providing compassion, healing, and new beginnings to the thousands of animals who come through our doors each year. We could not do this without you!

We would like to thank our $37,000 Matching Gift Challengers for inspiring such generosity with their combined matching gift - the largest we've ever had!
