My dear friends,
Our annual Parade of Paws Dog Walk which kicks off Dog Day Afternoon featuring Woofstock this Saturday, September 19th, is all about raising money for our Survivor Program. Without this program, not only would we be unable to give thousands of Hamilton County’s animals a second chance, but we wouldn’t be able to save hundreds of animals each year who are slated for euthanasia at other shelters around the state.
Many of these animals will die simply because there isn’t enough space to house them or because of injuries or illnesses other shelter’s have no funding to treat. For some, it’s simply because they’re too fearful or too old.
We don’t believe these are reasons to die.
So whenever funding and space permit, those are the animals we choose to rescue. The ones that often no other rescue organization can, or will, save. And for the ones like Gracie, we are their only chance.
Because of the number of severely injured and neglected animals in our care, the Survivor Fund is now depleted.
This means we are relentlessly raising funds for each animal as they arrive with life-threatening injuries or illnesses to stay true to our No Kill philosophy. And it means until the Survivor Fund is replenished, we cannot save the equally deserving animals we are implored to help every week from our neighboring counties.
The photos and stories of each animal facing an unnecessary death leave a scar on our hearts when we must say NO.
With your tax deductible donation to TEAM SAY YES, you can change the fate of an animal with the misfortune of landing on "the list."
Please help us SAY YES to the animals counting on us. Donate to my team, or form your own team, as it's not too late to change the fate of an animal who deserves a second chance.
