Help us save MORE at-risk animals like Rue
It was our DAPA! one-year anniversary in early May, and we have rescued close to 400 animals in that time frame. The vast majority of these have been dogs and cats/kittens in danger of being put down at the municipal shelter.
We do this through the sheer willpower and tireless work of our rescue/foster coordinators, foster homes, weekend adoption volunteers, and on a very tight, shoe-string budget. Nobody at our organization gets a paycheck.
We receive very little at this time from online and direct monetary donations, so if we want to continue this rate of lifesaving, we need your HELP today. Please donate any bit you can to help us keep rescuing animals at risk of death on a daily basis in our community's municipal shelter. We also always welcome new volunteers and foster homes to our lifesaving network.
$5000 Grant Award from Best Friends Animal Society
Thanks to , PetSmart Charities for their $5000 grant awared to our Dona Ana Pets Alive! effort to save animals from our municipal shelter. This grant makes it possible for us to run adoption promotions such as our current one throughout the year to increase our adoptions and lifesaving capabilities. Our goal this year was to have at least a 20% increase in our rescue numbers, and so far for the first part of this year incomparison to the last six months of last year, we are at a 60% increase.
Our fosters/volunteers make it possible; thank you!
For the entire summer of 2013, from June thru August, adopt a DAPA! dog/puppy or cat/kitten for FREE during our Summer Lovin' for Life adoption promotion. Our animals spend time in foster homes before being offered for adoption, and they come with age-appropriate vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter, and routine medical check-ups/tests. We invite the public to GO GREEN this June by adopting one of their "hybrid" dogs or cats; we have alot of models to choose from in all colors, shapes, sizes, ages, and all with wonderful, loving personalities! Besides weekly adoptions at PETCO on Sundays and on June 16th at Sam's Club, our kittens and cats are available for adoption regularly at Better Life Pet Foods, Enchanted Gardens, and Calista's Animal Hospital.
