Help us win $20,000 in the Veterans Charity Challenge

We’re super excited to let you know that we’re part of Veterans Charity Challenge 2, a fundraising campaign launched by craigconnects, founded by Craig Newmark of craigslist. 

To give back, craigconnects will be donating over $50,000 to organizations like ours focused on causes that honor America’s heroes. The charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will get a $20,000 donation from craigconnects. Second place gets $10,000, third gets $5,000.

We’re trying to raise as much money as possible for our cause so we can win the $20,000 grand prize donation, which would fully fund 80 veteran-shelter pet adoptions!

We think we can win and to do so, we definitely need your help. We’ll be sending emails throughout the Challenge and we’ll be asking for you to give. Every donation makes a difference, no matter how small.

To help now, PLEASE CLICK HERE and give whatever you can. Remember, EVERY dollar counts! If you want to go one step further or if you’re unable to donate personally at this time, click ‘Fundraise for This Campaign.’ In seconds, you’ll have your own fundraiser that you can share with all of your family and friends so that you can raise money for our cause as well.

Please email CrowdRise at if you have any questions about how to participate, and they’ll help solve everything.

Thanks so much for your support; let’s win for veterans and shelter pets!

P.S. Donations made through our Pets for Patriots website do not count towards the Challenge, so if you’re donating – and we hope you will – please do so through through our Veterans Charity Challenge page.

    Another way to raise money for your organization is by having a poker tournament. We’ve sponsored several poker tournaments with product donations, to help rescue organizations raise money. Should you decide to do so, contact me and I’ll be glad to send you some products to either sell or use as prizes.
    We have a particular love for GS. We rescued a white German Shepherd in 2004 from a shelter in Arkansas. She was the smartest, sweetest two year old, who became a beloved and valued family member. October 15, 2012 she was given six months to live because of Fibrosarcoma cancer. She proved them wrong about her time with us. She succumbed to the cancer on March 27, 2014. She is greatly missed! So I have a great love for GS! I wish you the best of luck!
