BENEFITING: Mn Pocket Pet Rescue
In addition to our everyday routines and expenses, we are currently focusing on raising funds to further our mission around educating the public on the general care, proper habitats, appropriate healthy food and realistic expectations for rabbits, degus, rats, sugar gliders, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, mice, hedgehogs, chinchillas, and guinea pigs. We believe that with properly educated adopters, we will find less of these types of animals surrendered back into shelters down the road. Our hope is to raise money to purchase equipment that will enable us to reach out and partner with schools, other rescues and organizations with a progressed ability to carry our message through power point presentations accompanied with our animal ambassador program, interactive educational games for your phone or tablet, an interactive animal care guide app. With the purchase of a wifi hotspot subscription we could take our programs on the road to day camps, summer camps, and outside events as well as have a means to show potential adopters our available adoptable animal profiles at events and have the ability to let people fill out our online application while at an event. Because of the stress that most of our rescued animals have already been through, we normally do not have more than a few animals with us at events. We are really looking to move the rescue to the next step. Our vision is so much more than just rescuing and rehoming animals. Let's minimize the need for rescuing in the first place.
