Bichon and Little Buddies has always had the mission to help local dogs in need. The number of incoming dogs needing rehoming has decreased recently. This is partially due to a reduced need to rehome healthy small dogs in our area, as well as changes with some of our partnering organizations, and the number of dogs that come to us needing more than routine medical care. Because we are funded strictly through adoption fees and donations, we are projecting that we may only meet half of our yearly budget to cover veterinary expenses, rent, utilities, and insurance this year. So now we have to put our thinking caps on.
We are asking for monetary donations which can be mailed or paid through www.paypal.me/littlebuddies. Or paid directly to Bay View Veterinary Clinic at 262-363-9993 to make a donation towards our current bill or towards future care as the needs arise. You can also sponsor a spay/neuter and routine vetting for new intakes.
For Pet's Sake Dog Training will be hosting a number of fundraising events for Bichon and Little Buddies, including lure coursing at the East Troy Salvation Army Camp on May 28.
We are also working with some other agencies who may have small dogs that are in need of rescue to help bring our intake numbers up. Also, we do accept owner surrenders on a case by case basis for dogs under 30 lb. If you know someone who needs to find a new home for their dog, they can contact us to see if the dog is one that is suitable for Bichon and Little Buddies. And as always, we need adopters for all the dogs currently in our care, like Bing pictured below.
We know that we are helping many dogs that are badly in need of our services, and we don't want to have to just shut our doors due to lack of funding. We are a 501c3 non profit, so donations are tax deductible. If you have any suggestions or questions you can contact Patti at 414-750-0152, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We greatly appreciate everyone's help as we continue to help the dogs that need us most. Click on our page http://www.bichonrescues.com/how-can-i-help to see the ongoing and upcoming fundraisers!
