For many this is the time of year when we look back at the past 12 months and prepare to take on the next dozen. It’s also a time when many animal welfare and rescue groups count on receiving the bulk of their donations to fund their cause for another year.
Back at Thanksgiving I posted a list of worthy non-profit groups that I work with for your donation consideration. As 2013 draws to a close tomorrow I want to highlight three of these that each do unique work and deserve your donation dollars at the end of this year. This in no way diminishes the work of the others and many more in the Bay Area and beyond that do amazing things. These three happen to be non-profit animal welfare organizations Mark Rogers Photography has done a lot of work with in the past 12 months and I feel they deserve special attention.
As you prep for New Years Eve parties and try to remember those lines from Auld Lang Syne please consider contributing. What you spend on a bottle of bubbly tomorrow for tomorrow night or on a date-night dinner later in the year could save an animal’s life. And donations are tax deductible, of course.
Veterinary Street Outreach Services (VET SOS) provides free medical care for the companion animals of San Francisco’s homeless population — serving as a bridge between this often-wary population and human and animal health services. VET SOS and its volunteers truly recognize the importance of the human-animal bond. Donate to VET SOS
Muttville Senior Dog Rescue
Since it was founded in 2007, Muttville has found homes for over 2000 senior dogs. Donations help with medical care and feeding. As you can imagine, veterinary costs are extraordinarily high for the population of dogs Muttville serves and if you give now some special Muttville donors are matching funds dollar for dollar. Donate to Muttville
Pound Puppy Rescue
Don’t let the name fool you. Rescuing puppies — some 400 of them per year — is not easy. It’s difficult, often heartbreaking work and the amazing volunteers at Pound Puppy Rescue do it year after year with many of them offering space in their homes and countless hours of their time to keep very, very young dogs healthy, fed and adoptable.
