Just a word of caution:
**** everyone wishes they could help as many suffering and needy animals as they possible can. **** however, i would just ask that you carefully research and evaluate requests (and requesters) before you either donate, or put a link out there asking others to do so.
one of the reasons we stipulated in the guidelines that people requesting donations for rescues be Bronze level members, and be members for at least 3 months, attaining at least a level of "Lil Dog", is that unfortunately there are people who cruise around forums, asking for donations that are not always legitimate - and we want this to be a positive and beneficial experience.
If someone is truly doing rescue work, it is doubtful they are destitute and in dire need of funds, or they would not be doing rescue. If there are veterinary needs, the rescue organizations will cover those. We WANT to help, but 1 bad experience can sour everyone - and any legitimate rescue/foster people will respect and understand this concern. So... caveat emptor. If you know people who need us, ask them to join and post and be visible.
Thanks for reading this.
