Δ The Giving Tree Δ
Several years ago, WVC decided that in Lieu of mailing Holiday cards, we would continue helping other by putting the money that would have gone towards cards and stamps into actually helping animal in need. We would like to offer you the opportunity to help us help others by donating to our Giving Tree this holiday season from late November through December.
Our Giving Tree is decorated with ornaments representing three humane 501-c-3 organizations that put their resources towards the animals. This year our three local organizations are: South Central Newfoundland Rescue, a volunteer-run Newfoundland breed rescue that covers 5 states that are without rescue. GRRACE is a volunteer-run Golden Retriever Rescue that covers Indiana. Providence Wildlife Rehabilitation in Westfield is an organization whose focus is to educate, rehabilitate, rescue, and release wildlife in our area. Their focus is Canada geese, birds, squirrels, hawks, and owls. All three organizations have dedicated themselves to making the lives of those in their care better by providing excellent medical care and finding forever homes that are the right home for the animal. All three organizations and their volunteers work tirelessly for the animals in their care. We will continue to honor Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT with our monthly donation. And we will gladly pass on any special donations to Best Friends that the Giving Tree receives.
This little provides a big impact to the groups it is dedicated to helping. We are asking a minimum donation of $5.00/"ornament." These "Ornaments" (cat toys, dog collar accessories or tree ornaments) are for your pet and most were handmade by WVC staff. Should you choose to pick up an ornament and give cash or write a check to that organization, WVC will give a matching donation to that organization.
We will match donations up to $500.00 total amount. Together we can make a big difference in the lives of the animals that need us. These organizations may be viewed on their websites and can also receive individual donations through their sites.
