You have to decide if you want your donation to solve a problem or bandage it?
(Bravo, if you are someone who like to get pet after pet off the E-list, medical treatment or rehomed!)
Our goal is different.
THIS is why we partner with non-profits, churches, food banks and Coalitions so that they get help; in their community, by neighbors and friends just like you!
We want to close our doors because there is no more work! That the neighborhoods and communities in Arizona are self sufficient, and skilled enough to take care of each other, including beloved pets!
Second, we insist that our work be done locally by neighbors and friends, building community through pets, with our support! According to 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 65% of U.S. households own a pet, which is to 79.7 millions homes. For instance, at the recent Cedar Creek Wildfire nid-summer 2016, 6 communities of 20,000 people we put on pre-evecation in Eastern Arizona which would have resulted in 13,000 animals needing evacuation! To see how many pets there are in YOUR area, got to this Pet Owner Calculator here .
We will NOT go into an area that does not have volunteers to provide services or that already services that community unless there is a disaster or community emergency, and then we go, to back up resources that are already in place there! This helps us empower local responses and reduces costs over time for travel!
This means we do NOT have a centralized administration building. Instead, those expenses go into LOCAL communities in Arizona. This means that most of our cash expenses go into transportation and storage. Only $500 a month goes to business expenses!
