Guardian Angel Donors – We need YOU!!!

donate27042015-09-600pxYou helped us help those GSPs at death’s door in shelters. The older dogs that no one else wanted. The GSPs needing surgery and rehabilitation that others had given up on. Now you can do even more. Become a Guardian Angel! With your recurring monthly donation, you will ensure that funds are available year-round to take care of the foster GSPs. Just $10 per month provides flea & tick preventative for two dogs. $25 a month provides heartworm preventative for ten dogs. $100 a month means we can provide life-saving surgeries.

Give the gift of a second chance to a deserving GSP! Go to our Guardian Angel page and choose your amount, or read about more payment options. Be their hero today!

How does your donation help?

Here are some of the ways your donations benefit GSPs in our care:

$5 = Five days of pain medication
$10 = Flea treatment for 2 dogs
$25 = Seizure medication for 4 months
$50 = Vet visit or heartworm test
$100 = Vaccinations for 4 dogs
$150 = Dog food for 3 months
$250 = Spay & pain meds
$500 = Dental cleaning
$1000 = Emergency vet visit
$5000 = Orthopedic surgery (knees, hips, spine, shoulders)
$50000 = Funds vet costs for a year

Vet care costs continue to rise. We don’t turn a dog away simply because s/he is older or requires extensive medical care. Your donation does make a difference.

Company Matching and Volunteer Grants – Making Your Gift Do More

Double doggie dollars color iconBe sure to check what your employer offers. With just a few minutes of your time, you can make sure your gift goes even farther! A company match is when companies provide funds to match an employee’s donation. Ratios are most often 1:1 but can be higher. Some companies have minimum and maximum matches per calendar year. Retirees and spouses may be eligible as well. Couples with different employers may be eligible for a match from each employer. A volunteer grant is when companies provide either a set monetary donation for every hour an employee volunteers, or provide a grant once the employee reaches a certain threshold. Make your volunteer hours count even more!

Some employers will contribute to a non-profit organization on your behalf once you designate the cause, or make a charity donation in honor of your service or leadership.

Tribute Giving

Tribute Giving provides a special way to reach out to family and friends in a meaningful way while providing support for NorCal GSP Rescue’s dogs. When your Tribute Gift is received, we will send a card or email to the person you designate, in your name. The amount of the gift is not mentioned.

Memorial gifts allow you to celebrate the memory of those special individuals in your life. It’s a way to honor those who cared so deeply about animals during their lives. You can also commemorate the life of a beloved companion animal.

Honor gifts are special gifts to make in honor of a birthday, anniversary, adoption day, or any special occasion. They celebrate the special people and animals in our lives.

Be sure to visit Tribute Giving for more information and to view Tributes. We can also work with you to set up a special tribute fund for a memorial, wedding, or other occasion – simply contact us.
