#GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. Additionally, #GivingTuesdayNWO has been created to help organizations right here in northwest Ohio like Humane Ohio better the lives of pets and people right here in our own backyard.
We’ve set a goal of raising $42,400 this year. Maybe you’re wondering, “What the heck are those crazy animal people going to do with $42,400?” Well, we are so glad you asked! With $42,400, we can do a lot! We could:
- Subsidize the spay or neuter of 1514 outdoor cats, making the cost only $27 to the caretakers, so that we never have to worry about finding homes for the countless number of kittens they would produce.
- Vaccinate 4240 animals against the life threatening rabies virus.
- Sponsor the adoption fees for 446 kittens in our adoption program.
- Spay 339 dogs suffering from a painful, life-threatening pyometra (infected uterus).
We have had four amazing donors come forward who, combined, are willing to match up to $21,200.00 of the donations received on #GivingTuesday! That means your donation this #GivingTuesday will go TWICE as far!
Your donation also helps make us eligible to win a $5,000 grant from the Toledo Community Foundation.
Your matched donation will double the amount of lives we can change! Help us spread the word today, and please consider making this season a joyful time of year for the smallest and most vulnerable members of our community, homeless cats and dogs in need.
No donation is too small to make a difference!
