I thought we would finish this fundraiser up today. Only $55 go reach our goal. I know you want to support us, and we really need you to support us. Every rescue is having the same problems we're having. So we have to keep our expenses and pleas to just what we need and nothing extra. If you can help, any size donation is appreciated.
We have raised $145 of the $200 we need so far. I'm confident we can raise the balance; that $200 figure represents the bare minimum of what is needed. No fluff. We appreciate the people who have donated and like the work that we are doing. So grateful to the people who have bought food and donated as well.
Feeding the dogs, needing supplies, needing vet care requires a constant stream of money going out. But you must have the money coming in first for it to go out. The never-ending demand is one of the reasons rescues burn out.
The needle is moving towards getting what we need for the dogs, and it's making me feel better about "the crowd I run with." There are so many dogs in need. All the time. Our supporters are greatly appreciated.
Raising money is not fun for the rescues, but it is necessary. So I have to keep asking, because it is necessary.
You watch the bag of food going down more and more, emptying out as you plead with the community, with your Facebook friends to help out and send a small donation. People who say they will help, they don't. I guess it makes them feel better when they say they'll do something, and they say it out loud, but they don't understand how the dogs rely on what you say, how the rescuers rely on what you pledge.
