DVGRR Extraordinary Give LATEST NEWS:
The 2017 Extraordinary Give is coming… Friday, November 17th!
Our Team is getting ready, so keep your eye here for updates!
GET READY FOR ANOTHER E.X.T.R.A.O.R.D.I.N.A.R.Y GIVE…
and join the DVGRR Team!
Friday, Nov. 17th is the Extraordinary Give! This is Lancaster County Community Foundation’s largest day of online giving. For DVGRR, less than 11% of total donations come from within Lancaster County, but almost all of our puppy mill dogs come from here… that’s why we depend on and need the DVGRR family across the country and even around world.
In the past, donations to DVGRR through the Extraordinary Give have helped get us through the winter, and we need your help again. Can you include our dogs in your charitable giving this day? Without any government funding, we rely on those who love our dogs and believe in our work to continue making a difference.
- We’ve been at capacity many times this year – record intakes almost every month!
- You’ve seen increases in your expenses, and so have we – alarmingly high increases in many of the medications we need and use daily.
- More neglected dogs, including puppy mill survivors with mammary tumors and rotting teeth, are arriving daily that require extensive medical and dental care and extended rehabilitation. All dogs stay with us as long as needed until their adoptive homes are found.
- Donations drop between May and November, forcing us to borrow against our credit line (including interest payments).*
Your extraordinary gift = extraordinary dogs receiving extraordinary care and given second chances to do extraordinary things! Plus your gift increases the additional funding we can receive from the stretch pool.
