The Giving Challenge
Greetings fellow dog lovers!
We want to share some very exciting news with you. We are participating in The 2015 Giving Challenge from noon on Septemb
Thanks to your donations we saved a lot of dogs’ lives last year, and although all of them will forever have a place in our hearts, there are a few, like Leilani, that especially stand out.
Six week old Leilani was rescued from euthanasia at Manatee County Animal Services after she was run over by a car. This 1.5 pound poodle puppy was infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites and had a broken femur along with a broken pelvis on the opposite side making amputation impossible. She required a blood transfusion and emergency surgery. After six weeks with an external fixator in place, she required a second surgery with a pin, a bone plate and screws. We strongly believe in our motto that "Saving one dog won't change the world but it will change the world for that dog!" There is no doubt that the world has changed for Leilani and we couldn't have done it without the generosity of our supporters.
Can we count on you to make a donation to Canine Castaways during The 2015 Giving Challenge? Please share this opportunity with all of your friends and family and encourage them to make a $25 donation to help us be one of the top three non-profits. Your support will help us reach our goal of more adoptions this year, saving even more dogs who were going to be euthanized. Please contact us with any questions.
The 2015 Giving Challenge is made possible by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and The Patterson Foundation with support from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group.
