501(c)(3) to start an animal rescue in Buffalo,NY!

Hello everyone, if you know me then you know that the past year I've dedicated almost all my time into saving Guinea pigs and other small animals. At first I was running the rescue out of my apartment until a bigger organization recognized me and we merged our rescues. After joining by them side by side for a little over 5 months, we decided we did not like the way they ran their recuse and opted out. Now I would like to start to try on my own again to become my own Rescue. But in order for me to do that, I must first get my 501c3. The state filing fee is gonna cost around $100 dollars. The federal filing fee is gonna cost anywhere from $200-$300 dollars. With your help, we can start saving animals the legal way!

Update:: I've bumped the goal up for the additional cost for the building that will be the rescues haadquarters! The building is located in North Tonawanda and will be ready to have our small animals in it by August 1st! Please consider donating to this amazing cause!

****!! I'm also looking for volunteers to help with fostering and taking care of animals as well as a bunch of other things. If that's something you're interested in, please message me !!****

Also!!!! If you have any cans and bottles that you are willing to part with, I will gladly come pick them up to help raise money for the rescue. As well as if anyone has any small animal related items that they no longer need or are willing to part with. Please consider helping out in anyway you can. Any bit, even the smallest bit can and will help. Thank you everyone for your support!! <3
