BREAKING! Sidewalk Angels Foundation, a New York-based, non-profit organization founded in 2003 by Grammy Award Winning Artist Rob Thomas and his wife Marisol Thomas, has pledged up to $20,000 to help us raise money in Challenge. Every gift made will be doubled up to $20,000! Check out the video for a special message from Cam, a long-time canine resident of Pets Alive and Sidewalk Angels Foundation.
Pets Alive is a special place. Just ask Cleo. Annie. Joey - and the other 250 animals here. They all have a story to tell. Some have endured abuse; others have simply been cast aside through no fault of their own. And some got lost and were never able to find their way home.
Once they find their way to Pets Alive, their life changes for the better. We treat their injuries or medical conditions and provide basic care such as nourishing meals, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, and deworming. We also provide rehabilitation for scared, behavior-challenged or animals needing extra enrichment to overcome the horrors of their past.
But this all takes money - and a lot of it. In 2018, we spent about $110,000 on medical treatments alone.
We aim to replenish our Medical Fund during this Fund the Shelter Challenge, sponsored by Michelson Found Animals, who is offering prizes to the top 6 fundraising organizations from $5,000 - $50,000!
Want to help us? There are several ways:
- Make a donation by selecting the "Donate" button and your donation will be DOUBLED up to $20,000!
- Set up a fundraiser by selecting "Join" and fundraise for the animals
- Select the Facebook or Twitter buttons and spread the word
Every dollar counts. A few examples of how your dollars will help - and don'e forget - each of these donations will be DOUBLED!
- $10 buys a microchip
- $25 will pay for KMR (Kitten Meal Replacement)
- $45 will spay/neuter one cat or kitten
- $50 will help vaccinate an animal
- $80 will neuter one male dog or puppy
- $100 will spay one female dog or puppy
- $250 helps treat a serious medical condition
- $500 funds a dental cleaning or tooth extraction
- $1000 and more will help fund life-saving surgery and other costly medical treatments
Note: The minimum donation is $10 and the maximum per transaction is $10,000.
Thank you so very much!
