JustAPennyPlease no donation is too small and clearly, none are too large....

Many of you will recall in 2018 WALKED across America. Our goal was to raise enough money to open a Pet-Friendly shelter at the Verde Valley Sanctuary, in Cottonwood, AZ.

The good news – because of 1000’s of supporters like you, we were able to open the only Pet-Friendly shelter for abused kids in Northern Arizona.

The bad news – it’s been occupied EVERY day and night since March 2019.

When the WALK was completed, I truly thought we had made a difference, perhaps we did. However, COVID hit, schools closed and child abuse has escalated dramatically. The true pandemic in America is Domestic Violence and Child Abuse. Just A Penny Please is doing it again, creating another Pet-Friendly home for abused kids and their moms.
Check back for some major announcements. Thank you for your continued love and support.

The purpose of this WALK is to raise $250,000. Our mission is to build a pet-friendly safe house for abused kids with pets. Most shelters DO NOT allow pets in the shelters. 
Please donate what you can. No donation is too small and will make a big difference in a kids life.
