Animal Lifeline Holiday Fundraiser for Rescued Animals
By the end of one calendar year, many animal rescue groups find themselves underfunded for the next year. To remedy its situation, Animal Lifeline, Inc., which relies on donations to rescue animals in danger of euthanasia, is hosting a holiday fundraising drive throughout December.
The small, Burlington County nonprofit is asking for financial gifts from businesses and individuals, as well as raffle and auction items, such as non-holiday, non-perishable gift baskets that can be used for fundraising events between now and the spring. Also needed are sponsors to help cover the costs of printing, mailing and office supplies.
Because Animal Lifeline is a rescue group, not a shelter, the provision of foster care throughout the year for animals waiting for permanent homes is an essential way that individuals can help. Last year, the organization raised and spent more than $50,000 on medical care and rehabilitation for rescued animals and placed numerous animals into loving homes. “Our medical care allows us to provide a loving pet for many people in our area. It is a gift that lasts a lifetime,” remarks President Vickie Eppolite-Bone. Families that are considering a new pet can visit AnimalLifeline.PetFinder.com to see adoptable animals.
Donations can be mailed to Animal Lifeline, P.O. Box 894, Marlton, NJ 08053. For more information, call [email protected].
