Although the love of a dog is freely given, food and shelter are not. We don’t have paid staff, and the rent is nominal, but the dogs need food and medical care, and the building requires utilities and upkeep. As a tax-free, 501c3 charitable organization, we rely entirely on donations and the work of volunteers to stay in operation.
The point is: we need your support! You can help by clicking on one of the logos or links below. Rest assured that donations are handled in compliance with all regulations regarding public charities. Our Treasurer, Lisa Burke, is a CPA who specializes in non-profits, and she makes sure that our finances are handled properly.
1. GoFundMe Capital Campaign
We are currently in the midst of a Capital Campaign on GoFundMe, to help pay for the renovations. Our house required a lot of work to convert into a home for dogs, and even though the renovations are complete, we still need to pay them off. The project costs $130,000, so we need the help of dog lovers throughout KC and beyond. Please click on the icon above.
