GIVING TUESDAY 2023
This #GivingTuesday, we have a donor willing to match up to $1,000 in donations towards our extended dog exercise yard! We plan on giving our dogs a ton of more space to really get the play and exercise they need in a safe and secure area!
We are raising $6000 and so far have about $2,500 already received. We need to raise $3,500 to meet our goal.
Please help the dogs by making your donation today and doubling your impact! We cannot do our important work without the support of our community!
Thank you for your support!
