Thanks to a grant from ASPCA-Subaru - - 125 dogs found new homes in Colorado. And, yes, saving lives frequently comes down to “Show Me the Money”. Gasoline is not free, nor are meals for the drivers, and food for the animals. The per animal cost was $39.47 x 125 = $4,934.24 - Our grant was $4,000.00 - - - money very well spent.
No matter how you look at rescue - - it starts and ends with “Show me the Money”.
Sometimes, when we’re sitting around kibitzing in general - -we imagine how nice it would be if - - big IF – we could just fill up the van at no cost, buy all the supplies and medications at no cost and - - in a dream world - - because we worked in rescue – we could get our groceries, living expenses covered by some magic wand. However, that isn’t going to happen - - ever. So - - Show Me the Money is the only way we can continue to rescue dogs and cats, then help them find new homes.
Individual donations, foundation grants, fund raisers by volunteers, monthly contributions - - - collectively they keep us going. No donation is too small; planned donations are our lifeblood (similar to paychecks); grants from foundations literally make the difference
We are grateful to the ASPCA and Subaru for their grant Everyone working together leads to success. And we know the 125 dogs who now have a good life would give kisses, tail bumps and snuggles as their way of saying “Thanks for saving me”.
