Fun rescue fundraiser

The overpopulation of cats and dogs in the USA poses a substantial problem, and rescues work long hours to save as many as possible. Many pets come to rescues with medical problems that must be addressed before he or she can leave for a new home, and finding money to treat heart worms, Parvo, and other diseases is a constant struggle.

Smile.amazon.com is one way to help your favorite rescue. If you shop from Amazon, you can choose a charity that will get a percentage of your purchases - at no extra cost to you.

Some rescues cooperate with corporations or sales persons, and raise money through getting a percentage of Avon sales or similar. These percentages might seem small when you buy something, but many small sums add up.

Ewenity Farms in Florida recently found a new way to raise money, and I believe few pet lovers can resist it.




An idea like this requires a talented volunteer to make the drawings, of course, but isn't it a wonderful idea? I know I want one. If you choose to buy from Ewenity, you're supporting a great rescue, by the way. They often take on the difficult cases that wouldn't stand a chance to be adopted from a shelter.

What is the best fundraiser idea you've seen?
