Hey Lauree, I'm way behind …
Hey Lauree,

I'm way behind in my thank-you notes for the saving pets challenge. So, for all you do, clearly THANK YOU isn't sufficient. You're the heart and soul of the organization and the driver behind it's success.

Thank you so much for supporting this crowdfunding program - it's a huge accomplishment to raise over $40K for any online program and given that it's our first effort, it really gives us the foundation to build from here. The bar is set!

I have about 75 thank you emails to send today - mostly small donors - but it will be interesting to load the data into Bloomerang to see how many are new donors and then to build a program to engage with them and grow them

All great stuff.

thanks again for the support - it really means alot.

Stuff About Me:

Dear Friends:

As the President and Co-Founder of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, I take great pride in all of the initiatives that have allowed us to grow from a small Weimaraner rescue and to branch out to  include all breeds of dogs in 2008. We have evolved into the most innovative and largest no-kill dog rescue in the Southeast.

I want to personally thank each and every one of you who have contributed to our mission. Because of you, in 2014;
• We saved over 2,197 dogs
• We spayed/neutered 1,218 dogs 
• We transferred 1,072 dogs from high-kill shelters

The greatest satisfaction of our efforts comes from saving heartworm positive dogs, mommy dogs with all their babies and dogs who have been injured, abused or neglected. We provide them with the treatment they need to survive and live full, healthy lives with loving adoptive families.

We are about to break ground at our new facility located in Palm Beach County, Florida. This will give us the ability to help more dogs that so desperately need us. We need your support! Please make a donation and/or start a fudraising team to continue our mision and vision of our new facility.

Our presence in the Southeast has exploded. We have over 600 active volunteers who assist at the Ranch and at events to help further our mission. Local businesses lend their support and help in our efforts to find loving adoptive homes for our very deserving dogs.

We are proud to be the voice of those who cannot speak. We work very hard at what we do to save lives every single day of the year. We thank you again for your support and ask that you help us in our endeavor to save even more lives.

With your help, we can save the lives of those in need – one by one – until there are none.
