ALL PAWS ON DECK: HELP US MEET THE CHALLENGE!
Give Day Tampa Bay is a 24-hour online giving event in our community. Your online donation to the Humane Society of Pinellas on May 2nd is a much-appreciated gift that will help us reach our goal of $25,000– AND also help us win up to $12,000 in cash prizes!
For the first time, Give Day Tampa Bay is accepting early donations – you can begin donating NOW.
We are thrilled to announce that thanks to an amazing donor who wishes to remain anonymous, we have a 1-1 match in the form of a challenge grant! Although the challenge grant runs through the end of the year, we hope to raise a quarter of the grant on Give Day! There has literally never been a better time to give! We will use your generous gifts from this challenge grant to expand our ability to keep pets with low-income people and seniors in our community! Specifically, we will expand three very important programs.
Program #1 is Senior Pet Connection which supports low-income and homebound seniors by making monthly deliveries of pet food and supplies at no-cost. Like a "meals on wheels" for pets, this program allows seniors to provide the level of care they know their pets deserve, without having to leave their home. Expansion Impact: Increase program from 150 to 300 homes!
Program #2 funds our Mobile Medical Unit. The most at-risk pets for lack of veterinary care, shelter surrender, or even euthanasia, are those cared for by owners on government assistance, limited or fixed income, or those lacking transportation to resources. We’ve put enough band aids on our aging Mobile Medical Unit. It’s time to replace it! Expansion Impact: Put us back on the Road!
Program #3 supports our Angel Fund. Nearly every day, HSP receives calls from caring pet owners whose pet needs veterinary services but the owner cannot afford it. Our Angel Fund provides medically necessary procedures and preventative care. Expansion Impact: Provide 800 services to pets in need!
