THE STORY:

 

Dear human friend,

I’m writing to ask for your support to improve the lives of animals in Charlotte by helping me support the Humane Society of Charlotte. In September 2012 HSC rescued me from a commercial dog-breeding facility, also known as a “Puppy Mill”.  My owners did not care about my health or welfare. I did not have toys or beds and I was not allowed to play with humans.  I slept outside in the elements and worst of all I did not receive any veterinary care!  HSC saved my life!  That is why I’m walking and rolling in this year’s PETPALOOZA – 2K Dog Walk.

This year, I have pledged to raise $1000 to help HSC continue with their life saving efforts.  Any amount, great or small, helps HSC rescue more of my four-legged brothers and sisters in these “Puppy Mills”.  Did you know that…

$24 will feed four hungry kittens for one week.
$48 will supply a warm, comfy bed for dogs in their kennels.
$75 can provide one canine spay surgery to prevent more homeless animals.
$100 will make sure four puppies stay healthy by receiving their necessary vaccinations.

Making a donation is easy! Visit my personal page at:

Another way to help is by joining my team “Diva against Mills”. Help me stop “Puppy Mills” by participating with me. If you are not able to walk, consider volunteering for a few hours or raising funds as a virtual participant. Visit my team page at:

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact my friends at HSC – www.humanesocietyofcharlotte.org

Thank you very much for your support.

Warmest regards,

Diva  (aka Godiva)
