Save a Life Drive update

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Fundraising

We’re halfway into our first Save a Life Drive.  We’ve asked volunteers, fosters, and supporters to help us raise funds to save 500 more dogs and cats by raising $50,000.  Each person is setting a personal goal and sending out their fundraising page to their contacts (see example).  So far, we have a combined goal of just over $50,000 which is fantastic.  Thank  you!  Austin pets are lucky to have so many animal lovers who want to help them.

We’ve raised about $12,500, so we’re 25% there.  We added a graph to our home page to show everyone how much we’ve raised in the drive.

We still need help!  We’re halfway there, as the drive ends in 2 weeks and 1 day, but have only raised 25% of the needed funds so far.  If you’re interested in helping out, even a $100 goal to save 1 pet makes a huge impact for that 1 pet who gets to be saved by your contribution. All you have to do is  send an email to email hidden; JavaScript is required with your goal amount and we’ll get your page set up for you.

Here is another sample letter sent by one of our volunteers:

I am turning 40!  Please help me celebrate by saving 4 dogs or cats from Town Lake Animal Center’s Euthanasia List.  Austin Pets Alive! saves a small portion of these animals each and every day. I want to help them save more so I am raising the funds needed to save 4 additional lives!

Please donate towards my Chip In Campaign by clicking on this link (this is where you will insert the link that we will send you when you email the [email protected] address) and using paypal as a safe method of payment to Austin Pets Alive!  All donations are tax deductible and every cent goes to the animals.

Thank you in advance for helping to make Austin a No Kill City!”
