Animals In Distress is a non-profit, tax deductible sanctuary for animals who have little or no hope elsewhere. Their programs are designed to prevent suffering and to save lives. They believe that there is a special home somewhere for every pet if there is enough time to find it. They keep every animal admitted, providing medical care, behavioral rehabilitation, good food, shelter, and most important of all, love, until a suitable new home can be found. No animal is killed because it is unwanted, too old, or injured.
All donations are used for animal care expenses, since no one is paid for administrative, fund raising, and other non-animal care duties that are performed by a dedicated group of unpaid volunteers. The shelter receives no tax or public monies and relies totally on donations and fund raisers for its total operating budget. Volunteers work hard at events all year round to raise money. A Radiothon, pet photos at Easter and Christmas, walkathons, special setups at malls and festivals, raffles, bake sales, craft and gift bazaars, the sale of various items – all of these are only some of the ways that the shelter raises funds. Our shelter newsletter, “Tails of Hope,” is our other main fund raising and public relations vehicle.
