Hi everyone. My name is Steve, and I've volunteered my time for myriad animal-related projects over the past many years. I am now driving rescue missions as a volunteer to transport injured Wildlife or rescued domestic animals to places of safety and healing. I have recently begun to make some of the actual rescues as well, primarily raccoons but also other species, and it's incredible to be such an integral part of the process. I want to be able to do this as often as possible, but the current price of gas has made it challenging to take on more than a couple of cases a month with our tight budget. Many of my journeys are around 200 km round-trip, and currently we pay about 17 cents per km for gas in our car. So those trips cost my family at least $34 in gas alone, which is all I am looking to help cover. My pledge to any of you who donate is simple: every single cent I receive will go only toward the cost of gas used to transport the special cargo and nothing else.
I have set my current ask at $750 in total; I’ve raised $340 so far through GFM (minus small fees from them) and this has funded about two thousand kilometres of rescue driving.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer, and absolutely no judgment from this corner for anyone unable or unwilling to donate. <3
