UPDATE … where we are today

updateAs you all know “In Memory Of Maggie May” is very dear to my heart and I will never give up, I will always do my very best to help those pets that truly need our help.  Fundraising is hard because it is tough times out there for many of us. But, it is  discouraging when donations don’t come, especially when we need it most. We are a non-profit organization, but not a registered charity (yet!) because we are small and need people to join us to help us grow, but it does not mean that our hearts are not in the right place.  We donate our time and absorb much of the costs personally.  We look for great deals on fabric so that the majority of our sales are directed to the memorial fund. We are very diligent in our application process, we work closely with our medical consult, and we ensure that those truly in need receive our help. Did you know that to date we have paid out close to $15,000 to pets in need? Can you help us continue our cause …. we have 426 followers, can you imagine if we received a $20 donation from each, that’s $8520! Small amounts add up fast!


Our main priority right now is to help Bambi, a 7 month old Chihuahua with a broken leg.  Her application came in last evening, we know our funds are short, because we have other pending requests for a pup with IVD disease, a kitty with diabetes that is not eating, and another that needs a lump removed. You can donate via paypal or email transfer.
