Provide Ten Vets With Pets

FUNDED May 21 2013 – Thank You!

SgtDavidandCharliePets for Vets rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to be loving companions for veterans suffering from emotional or physical trauma. Truly this is a case of “we don’t know who saved who,” but we do know that love abounds.

Pets for Vets found three-year-old Charlie, a female husky, in a shelter. When they first met Charlie, the depressed young dog with badly matted fur looked like a mess and had been passed over for adoption. After a thorough cleaning and de-matting, Charlie entered the Pets for Vets training program.

Sergeant David Mills served for more than nine years in the U.S. Army. As a result of his time in Iraq, Mills suffers from PTSD, TBI, vertigo, and pain from bone spurs. One side effect of the PTSD was nightmares and anxiety around people.

Today, Charlie uses her Pets for Vet training to support her own special person with love. She is Sergeant Mills’ constant companion, always staying by his side. These days, Charlie is a happy dog and her owner is more comfortable in crowds and has seen his overall emotional health improve.

Your click will help ten other shelter dogs and ten other veterans find the same comfort and joy.

Help 4 Girls Get to School Safely for 4 Months: Completed January 18, 2017

64,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

In 2008, men on motorcycles sprayed acid into the faces of teachers and students walking to school, targeting girls wearing school uniforms. Donors rallied and purchased a school bus so this would never happen again. Keeping these buses running is costly. Funding is needed to help pay for the bus drivers, fuel and on-going maintenance. With your support, we can continue to provide safe passage to school for girls in Afghanistan.

Bring Rainwater for 2,200 Square Feet of Garden to Native American Families: Completed January 16, 2017

61,600 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

The Tohono O’odham Reservation, which stretches along the Mexican border through the Sonoran Desert and southwest Arizona, is extremely isolated and painfully food deprived. The majority of the residents live well below the poverty level, with many making a mere $358 per month. The grocery store is a 2-hour drive away, and the little agriculture has all but dried up over the past decades. In addition to limited income and lack of food sources, few have access to transportation. This makes the already inaccessible food even more unattainable for the village of Gu Vo. With your help the Native Americans of Gu Vo can harvest rainwater for their gardens. Your donation will help them grow accessible and nutritious food, something they strongly need.

Help Provide Full Vet Care for 4 Orangutans in the Field: Completed January 13, 2017

60,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

As Sumatra rapidly trades their rainforests for farmlands, the orangutans who call these forests home are losing habitat critical to their survival. Today there are less than 6,600 orangutans left in the wild, stranded in isolated patches of forest surrounded by plantations. Stripped of their protection by the forest, these orangutans face greater exposure to hunting and poaching for the illegal pet trade. You can help! Your donation will help fund tranquilizer darts to safely evacuate orangutans from areas being cleared by bulldozers as well as supply veterinary supplies needed to treat them out in the field.

Help Vaccinate 32 Dogs to Give Them a Better Chance for Adoption: Completed January 4, 2017

64,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

According to the Humane Society of the United States, between 6 and 8 million dogs and cats are left at shelters each year. Many shelters experience much higher intake of pets than others, leading to euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals due to lack of funding, space, and local families willing to adopt. Animal Lifeline has created a Ride to Rescue program to help transport dogs and cats from overly crowded shelters to shelters where they have a better chance of being adopted. You can help.
