Wondering how you can help?
Here are some great ways to help out:
Purchase items from our Amazon Wish List.
Let your Amazon shopping addiction do some good...buy items for our residents from our wish list. We have a little bit of everything on this list and it really helps us out not to have to use our funds to purchase these items. The dogs LOVE it when the UPS man shows up - they know the packages are usually for them!
Consider making a monthly donation.
One of our largest monthly expenses is medication. Almost every dog at the Sanctuary takes some kind of medication on a daily basis. This is incredibly expensive. Your recurring donation helps us cover these monthly expenses.
Start a canned food drive.
We go through about 12 cans of canned food a day. Yep, a day. We use mostly canned because our dogs are old and don't have teeth. And they are picky as hell and don't want to eat dried. We aim to please, so canned it is. We use Pedigree, but will take any kind of canned. We can arrange for you to drop the food off at the Sanctuary, or we can come pick it up. Sam's Club has awesome deals on flats of Pedigree.
See if your workplace matches donations.
This is an awesome way to get more bang for your buck. A lot of workplaces will match your donation, this is a great way to make a difference without having to pay for it out of your own pocket.
We don't use volunteers for dog care (just because our sanctuary is run out of our home, so this could get awkward). But we do use volunteers for things like events, administrative work and fundraising. If you have a special skill you think we would benefit from, contact us!
Organize a fundraiser
This could be for money, or things like beds and blankets and food. If you have an idea, contact us and we'll do anything we can to help.
Adopt an old dog...or two. Or four. Or better yet, start a senior dog sanctuary!
The absolute best thing you could do would be to adopt an old dog from a shelter. We believe the key to happiness is an old dog. Try it. You'll see we are right!
