As the year draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to reflect upon 2014. During the year, Stafford Animal Shelter has taken in over 900 animals in need; not just dogs and cats, but also guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, and even some lizards. The Rosie Fund, a special fund just for animals with major medical needs, provided hip surgery, corrective eyelid surgery, bladder stone removal, assistive implants for a cat who had lost his front paws to an accident, and several dental cleanings and extractions. More than 200 animals were spayed or neutered, including rabbits and even a few guinea pigs. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of donors like you.
We are extremely fortunate to live in such a charitable community. We receive no financial support from national animal welfare organizations nor are we funded by any government entities. Stafford Animal Shelter relies heavily on the kindness of individual donors to be able to keep our doors open and provide housing and care to the lost, abandoned, and surrendered animals of Park and Sweetgrass Counties.
When you make a donation to Stafford Animal Shelter, you can rest assured that it is being used judiciously and for a good cause. 75% of our annual income goes to direct care of the animals. All donations to the Shelter are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. That means that you can help yourself (who can argue with a lower tax bill?) while helping animals. Plus you can come meet and snuggle with the grateful recipients of your generosity.
We encourage you to think of homeless pets this year when assessing your finances and considering your gifts. Thank you for helping us continue to serve the needy pets in our area. Give securely online right now!
