Adoption World & Rescue Report – Rock&Rawhide Part 2 – 1.04.12

“Starting a non-profit is a costly process. From trademarking the name, to the various Government forms, we run into costs before we even begin. Of course, we would rather this entire amount of money to go towards toys and rawhides, but having non-profit status will mean bigger, better and more reach for the animals affected. Thanks to the beautiful people who have donated to the campaign so far, we have reached our goal! Thank you! This means we can now become an official non-profit. With the extra funds we will be able to buy more items for the animals and start exciting programs to collect more items Nationally, spread the word of adoptions as well as quality of life in the shelter system. Exciting times head!” (source: http://www.indiegogo.com/RockandRawhide)

Donations collected for Shelter Dogs 12.20.11

Dear Readers of AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog,

Kindly consider making a donation to the Rock & Rawhide Campaign. You will be doing something good for dogs who have so little.

It’s been seen that when a dog has toys or blankets with them in their cages, they are calmer, less agitated, and most important – more attractive to people looking to rescue or adopt.

Feel good about yourself, by doing a favor for a dog in this situation. Both you & the dog will win!

Respectfully,

Adopted Mom & ChazzTheDog

  3. Is this only for the holidays, or do they give shelter dogs pressies year-round?

    • Hi Pepper,

      Good question! Rock and Rawhide is a year round campaign. They just came out big at Thanksgiving time, at least that’s when I was contacted by a friend of theirs. Since then I have been in contact with Kylie Edmond, one of the two co-founders (the other being here husband). At their website http://www.rockandrawhide.org they have a 2012 calendar of upcoming events where proceeds will go to the R&R campaign. There headquarters are New York I beleive, but they are looking for volunteers to lend a paw across the US and beyond. They have gotten some amazing “PRESS” as well, probably because Kylie & many participants are in the music entertainment field. That too is on the website for review, if you are interested. If not, I can say I believe that they are on the up & up, I feel confident that they have these animals best interest at heart today & everyday. Hope that helps.
