Fundraiser Details

Did you know that lost, abandoned, or stray animals in West Richland need our help? Because West Richland falls outside the "tri-cities" boundary, we are unable to access current services provided by Tri Cities Animal Control or Benton County Animal Control Instead, animals are housed in an un-manned shelter, without access to the general public which limits their exposure and ability to find their forever homes. Each day that goes by in this "closed" shelter their spirits deflate, and their chances dim of being adopted or reclaimed. ASAP West Richland is working to improve the lives of these animals and needs your help. We are trying to raise funds to incorporate and file for non-profit status so we can collectively seek grants and other sources of funding to build a new animal shelter within the City limits of West Richland, (accessible to the general public) and provide necessary veterinary care for our four-legged friends while sheltered there. We estimate that filing fees and initial attorney consult fees will exceed $1,000. Will you help us get started?

Friends, we are close! We are trying to incorporate and cover all our filing fees to become a 501C3 non-profit, helping to improve the lives of lost or abandoned animals in West Richland by providing necessary veterinary care, foster and adoptive families, education and outreach, and improved shelter conditions. Please consider helping us reach our goal so we can truly start to raise the necessary funds for our four-legged friends! No animal has had to be euthanized since ASAP formed in February.

We are gaining momentum and helping more animals than ever, thanks to your support! This weekend ASAP-West Richland will be at the Uptown Shopping Center with a couple of our favorite chihuahua's, for the Chalk Art Festival on Saturday from 9-3. Come on down and meet us and our four-legged friends who need a forever home. Bring your spare change, or your wallet, or donate here to help us continue our mission to improve the lives of these homeless pets through foster & adoption, education and outreach, and improved shelter conditions!

What it would feel like to be caged 24/7? We have three young dogs, approximately 1 year old and nowhere to go while they are being held at the West Richland Animal Shelter. Our current shelter is on private land, not-accesible to the public, which means these little guys have no means to interact with anyone but themselves, and need a foster or forever family NOW! They want to be part of your pack!  

ASAP West Richland is a newly formed non-profit organization which is striving to improve the lives of lost or abandoned animals by helping with outreach, education, adoption, and shelter improvements. We need your help to raise the necessary money to file our incorporation and non-profit fees with the state, and get serious about building a shelter these poor animals need so badly.  We're almost half way to our goal. Will you consider helping us! Please consider making a small donation to help us reach our goal. https://www.youcaring.com/asap_westrichland

We are excited at ASAP West Richland as this week brings us an opportunity to meet with others who care about our four-legged friends in West Richland and want to find out how to help improve their lives. We will be meeting on Wednesday the 24th and hope to see us develop a plan to reach our goal to incorporate and get us moving toward a new animal shelter in West Richland. Can't make the meeting but want to help? Your donation will help us to file for non-profit status so we can help the animals in a VERY BIG WAY!
