Campaign kicks off to help hurt puppy
July 25, 2013
Many people across the United States have a particular affinity for dogs. They say that these creatures are man's best friend, and so many individuals grew up with them as an integral part of their family. So when a story of a hurt puppy emerges, many jump to help in anyway they can.
According to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, the Wisconsin Humane Society is hoping this will happen to help a 3-month-old puppy. Bella was hurt when she was dropped by a young child, and the family had to give its pet over to the group because it couldn't contend with veterinary costs.
The organization asks loyal donors for help with 20,000 animals every year, the news source said, and Bella is no different. It needs to raise $2,500 for surgery after a leg amputation, and any money that exceeds that amount would go to helping other sick animals.
In other parts of the U.S., people have been particularly giving recently to causes that benefit dogs. WPSD-TV, based in Fulton, Ky., revealed that people in the area have been donating food and their homes to adopt 18 dogs seized by police after reports of animal cruelty. Specifically, about 350 pounds of food have been given.
Individuals, programs and organizations that rely on fundraising to fuel sustainable operations might find nonprofit fundraising software advantageous. The solutions can facilitate the process of identifying grant opportunities, generate reports that demonstrate current financial need and showcase previous achievements.
