BENEFITING: ROCK CITY RESCUE
Giving a pet a home is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. For one thing, you find in that pet (whether it be a cat or dog) a spark of life and joy that can only be described as love. Many find a new family member in their pets and "man's best friend" never rings more true than in that instance. Despite this, caring for a pet can also be very challenging and expensive; however, the happiness of our pets is worth it. And that's what we believe.
Rock City Rescue has always wanted to make a better life for the pets residing in Arkansas. That's why we are participating in #GivingTuesday: we simply want to help provide the care necessary for our pets to continue enjoying life, and therefore, spread that joy into their owners lives, too.
#GivingTuesday follows two of the biggest shopping days of the year: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We are hoping to parlay these traditional spending days into a day of donations for the animals. Rock City Rescue plans to promote our #GivingTuesday event throughout our community as a way to raise awareness for homeless dogs and cats during a time when many people are already focused on giving. We want the residents of Central Arkansas, as well as our supporters in the Northeastern United States, to factor in the shelter animals when they think of giving. By giving to RCR, donors help give animals the gift of life, hope and happiness.
ALL of the funds we raise will go directly towards helping shelter animals - including cats and dogs being cared for in our many foster homes. In addition to this, our rescue also helps pay for owned animals in our community to receive food and veterinary care that cannot be provided by their owners. We encourage volunteer participation, educate the public about adoption, vaccinations, spay/neuter, and other animal welfare issues, as well as donate food, vetting, and shelter to improve the comfort and safety of animals in our community. Being no strangers to hard work, we often make great effort to raise funds for the benefit of specific animals in need.
Rock City Rescue was created to support the animals of Arkansas. Being an independent, non-profit organization, RCR does not receive funds from the government - we are based solely on donations.
