As many of you know, on July 20th we will have to begin paying for our free NING website. Our website is a critical component of our rescue efforts and facilitates our abilities to save, place and maintain relationships with rescuers, adopters and supporters. I am in the process of exploring ways to offset the $250 a year website costs through advertising, partnerships, sponsors, grants and fundraising.
I invite you ALL to participate!
I would personally appreciate any and all ideas and suggestions as we continue to search for ways to supplement our finances in order to achieve this.
Email me the correct address and I'll send you a check for $25.00 tomorrow. If every member just sent $5.00, we would have enough to maintain site for quite a while. Also, as advertsing partners, how about the companies we KNOW produce the good food for doodles-we could establish a fund for grooming, medical care, special foods or medicines etc. that a foster might not be able to provide. Thanks for all of your efforts on behalf of doodles and critters everywhere.
We would be happy to send in a little money to help with the DRC website costs. Please let us know how you would like this sent...via check to you or the "chip in" payment option. We are so appreciative of all you folks at DRC do to rescue dogs and are so grateful for our Barcley!
One of the rescue groups I have followed does an on-line auction. Not really sure how it works to organize, but from my end it was the same kind of items you'd see at any silent auction, some dog related, some not - baskets of doggie supplies, vacation house rentals, jewelry, hand-made goods, tickets for various events, grooming services.
