You Made #GivingTuesday Amazing!


You made #GivingTuesday 2020 the BEST day of the year for animals, exceeding our goal and raising over $118,000 to help pets, livestock and wildlife in need!

You did it!

#GivingTuesday 2020 was an AMAZING day for animals in need! Your generosity exceeded our wildest dreams and raised over $118,000 for pets, livestock and wildlife in our community! This amazing generosity is almost double last year’s #GivingTuesday and we cannot thank you enough for your support.

We cannot thank you enough for providing compassion, healing and new beginnings to the thousands of animals that come through our doors each year. Your support makes families whole, and we could not do it without you.
