FUNDRAISERS

It takes at least $50,000 per month to run the Animals In Distress shelter. Where does the money come from? We receive NO public money and exist totally on the donations of individuals and on fundraisers. All administrative, placement, fundraising, and other such duties are performed by volunteers who receive no compensation for the thousands of hours they donate each year.

As the list shows, we are constantly seeking funds to support the much needed work that we do. We are ever mindful that it is cheap to take a life, and expensive to save a life. We are very grateful to everyone who makes our work possible so that there can be a “Kennel of Hope.”
