KENTUCKY ANIMAL RELIEF FUND via Crowdrise
September 20, 2013
WHY: We will all be old some day. None of us wants to be overlooked, forgotten and left to die alone. Unfortunately, this is the fate of many senior dogs. Like us, regardless of age, they still matter. Like us, they remain worthy of our time, companionship, and love. Our organization works to help homeless senior dogs. Operating a senior dog rescue is expensive and we need your help!
YOUR DONATION: Please click HERE to see examples of how your hard earned money will be used by our organization. WE HAVE NO PAID EMPLOYEES. Donations are used for veterinary care and the long-term management of those seniors who are never adopted. We also hope to build a quarantine cottage so we will have a safe place to keep senior dogs when they come directly from the shelter with contagious conditions. This will enable us to help more senior dogs while keeping our resident seniors safe from illness.
THE DETAILS: The charity I am running for is Kentucky Animal Relief Fund, Inc. Established in 2001, KARF is a small network of volunteers committed to the rescue and comprehensive care of homeless senior dogs. Overlooked and undervalued, seniors stand little to no chance of adoption and are left to face illness, loneliness, confusion and eventual death at the most vulnerable time in their lives.
All dogs rescued by our organization receive necessary veterinary care, including, but not limited to, bloodwork evaluation, heartworm test and treatment if needed, diagnostic x-rays, dental care, growth removal/biopsies, spay/neuter, required vaccines, and any necessary medications.
Our goal is to maximize quality of life of the dogs in our care and to place every reasonably healthy, adoptable dog in a screened and approved permanent home. Unadopted dogs remain in the care of Kentucky Animal Relief Fund for the remainder of their lives.
You can do your part to help a senior dog in need by sponsoring me for this race. No amount is too small! We have no paid employees so all donations go directly to helping senior dogs. KARF is a 501c3 charity and donations are tax-deductible.
Please join me in helping those who are often forgotten.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Angie White, Director
