Southern California German Shepherd Rescue (SCGSR) is a 501c3 non-profit rescue organization that has rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over 800 animals since 2006.
We've been there! As a small rescue organization, SCGSR recognizes that similar organizations need funding to support the medically ill animals we inherit either from pet owners or those rescued from municipal shelters who are deemed "medically unadoptable". This subset of animals is unwanted and costly -- and for these pets, this is a very dangerous position to find themselves.
Pets with Costly Medical Needs are At Risk of being Euthanized
· 50% of pet owners believe $1,000 spent on medical care for a pet is too much.
· 1.5 Million animals are euthanized in shelters each year.
SCGSR developed the Rescue to the Rescue (R2R) Fund in order to support the recognized need of other small non-profit rescue groups without the staff, resources or expertise to obtain funding or traditional grants. This program will provide medical grants to approved 501c3 non-profit rescue organizations on a national scale.
SCGSR seeks an initial start-up fund of $35,000 to provide SCGSR Rescue to the Rescue (R2R) Medical Grants. Each donation to this fundraiser will be used fund approved grant applicants. Although the focus of R2R grants will be on pets at severe risk due to higher medical costs, every donation, large or small, helps our mission.
No Matter the Size, Your Gift Helps
· $25 donations provide necessary vaccinations or drugs
· $100 donations provide medical exams and treatment options
· $250 donations provide spay or neuter
· $500 donations provide a senior panel or teeth cleaning
· $1,000+ donations can cover the costs of tooth extractions, orthopedic procedures, or cancer therapies
At SCGSR, we've been remarkably thankful and appreciative to receive the generous support of donors who have grown over the years to trust our organization. Because of that, we continually experience the great opportunity to achieve success in funding the care of our own extreme medical cases and placing these previously "unadoptable" pets into forever homes. With our background in rescue, we are confident in our abilities to extend our reach beyond German Shepherds in Southern California as we grow to help medically needy animals through qualified rescue organizations nationwide!
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." -Albert Einstein (adapted)
