Donate to Win!

27 Nov

As we shared yesterday, Baci‘s recovery has been taking a little bit longer than expected. We’ve been back and forth with her to the vet approximately, well, 7 times. And that’s not even including her initial boarding there while she was being treated for kennel cough! So as you can imagine, we’ve racked up quite a bill on this little girl. It’s all worth it though, and when she finds her forever home, it will be even more so!

But we now we need your help, friends. Baci’s care has taken quite a toll on our resources and her care is still ongoing. And with the holidays rapidly approaching, we figured what better time than now to do a “Donate to Win!” fundraiser. We’ve got lots of great prizes you could win and the only thing you have to do to enter is donate a minimum of $10! Here’s the deal:

  • Donations can be made on Bully Project’s Firstgiving Fundraising page.
  • For every $10 donation, you get one entry. Donate $40 and you will get four entries; donate $100 and you will get ten!
  • All entries will be entered into an online randomizer, and winners will be chosen on the day after Christmas (aka Wednesday, December 26th). This gives you exactly one month to enter.
  • Prizes will be assigned to each winner in the following order. We’ve got lots of great stuff – so if you’re a household with pets, we know all of these prizes will appeal to you!

One winner will receive a brand new martingale style collar in the fabric and size of their choice from Sirius Republic. Lucy has always worn collars from Sirius Republic, and we get compliments on the street about them all the time. Check out their website to view which fabrics are available and how to measure for sizing. What’s more is that Sirius Republic generously donates a portion of their proceeds to several rescue organizations, and even embroiders their collars with the words “ADOPT ME” for free foster parents.
