FREE Tags for Pet Rescue Groups

$160 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 6 people in 41 months

Hi there...
Thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is Sandra Howlett and I live in a small town in Ontario, Canada. (Bowmanville) I own a small business (my hubby says expensive hobby) called Apple Melon Designs. For the last 2 years I have been making hand stamped pet tags and selling them at local craft shows and pet themed events. 
Over time I have come into contact with many rescue groups and have seen a genuine need. When dogs (or cats) come into rescue, they may not have been to the vet to get microchipped yet and need a tag to identify them with a phone number just in case they get loose, scared,  or run off.
This way they can be identified and kept safe much faster than putting up posters or online ads or waiting for a vets office to open to be scanned for a microchip. 

I am starting this GoFundMe campaign to help me buy materials to make tags for any rescue that needs tags for their animals. Most (if not all) rescues depend on donations and don't have the cash to be paying for tags from retail stores. As a mompreneur, I don't have the available resourses to spend as much as I would like on supplies to make these tags for the rescue groups. 

With your help (a little goes a long way) I can make tags for any rescue group that needs them for FREE. I am happy to donate my time, tools and energy for such great causes. 

Thanks in advance and don't hesitate to contact me if you need a tag for your pet or know of a rescue that could use my tags.

Remember, as one we are limited - as a whole there are no boundaries to what we can accomplish.

Adopt.....don't Shop.
Please don't BUY while others DIE.
Until there are none.
Every life matters.
Why BREED while there are those in NEED?
Sell dogs in the store ? Walk out the door.

Are there others? I'm sure there are hundreds of sayings.....please help me provide ID Tags for Rescue groups with animals in shelters and foster homes.
One, simple aluminum ID Tag can save the life of a scared, unfamilliar, injured or just confused little soul ....please donate to help keep the FREE TAGS for Rescue program going....more groups contact us every day requesting tags and we would love to help every one of them.
Thanks for reading this and have a wonderful weekend.

All my pets have been rescues, so in their memory I hope to help other furbabies find their forever home!
