Your Donations Matter to Dogs in Danger in Texas
Handsome Dan’s Rescue Will Donate Matching Funds up to $5,000.00
We have decided to help a small grassroots organization similar to ours, who focus their efforts on medical and behavioral cases and does not have the benefit of media coverage like some of the larger organizations. With the assistance of our dear friend Aleksandra, we researched and identified a small group we are proud to stand behind, and support their immediate work on the ground in Victoria, TX.
Wags, Hope and Healing – Austin Area Animal Rehabilitation and Adoption is currently on the ground in Victoria, TX as dams are being opened around Houston, flood waters are rising in Victoria by the hour. These volunteers are there cutting dogs from chains, gathering up roaming dogs and taking those appropriate to a partner shelter for safe keeping, providing triage and food, and working to reunite some with owners. The group raised money last week and have purchased a van, and will be buying a boat today, to aid in the animal evacuation of Victoria and surrounding towns. So they have themselves funded this work.
This YouCaring fundraiser is to help with the major medical cases and dogs they will be taking back with them to Austin if not claimed. They have already identified two such cases, the super sweet elderly pittie boy (shown here) who was abandoned and had weathered the hurricane on that chain in a dogloo and is in pretty bad shape, and another with lacerations to his body. As more are identified that will not be able to be reunited with owners, these funds will provide for their medical care.
Wags Hope and Healing will be receiving the proceeds of this fundraiser. Handsome Dan’s Rescue will match all donations up to $5,000 with a goal of providing $10,000 total in much needed funding for medical care for the animals identified by Wags as the most needy cases. Your donation will be doubled by HDR, making your funds go even further to help the most critical cases.
Please help us support this effort by sharing, and donating if you are in a position to do so. And please send wishes for safety and success down to our new friends at Wags Hope and Healing as they carry out this lifesaving work.
Please remember to check to see if your employer will match your donation, which will triple your funds, when also matched by us here at HDR!
Thank you to Handsome Dan’s Rescue Vice President Trisha Torres, Barry Colvin, and their company Aspects, Inc. – High Quality Bird Feeders for donating $3,000 of our matching funds!
