North Texas Giving Tuesday Now

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

On May 5, 2020, our community will come together for North Texas Giving Tuesday Now, an emergency giving day to support the nonprofits in our region. As you know, our work has been challenged by the current climate and the impact of COVID-19 on our community, region and world.


This has been an extremely difficult time for us all, when we had to close the shelter's door and still have over 200 animals to care for. Shelter visitors with donations have stopped coming in, but the staff and volunteers have kept all safely cared for. We are in the high demand part of the year. With spring comes puppy and kitten season, and so many are not getting the care they need due to shelters having to close.


We need to help as many as we can, and with donations being down, it's getting more difficult to reach our goals this year. We need cash donations to buy food, vet care, and other shelter supplies. If you can, we’re asking for your support on this emergency giving day, to help us continue our work, serving those who rely on our services and providing resources for our staff and volunteers to continue forging ahead.
