Thirsty Great Danes Need a New Well

This campaign will benefit the Great Dane Sanctuary in Siren, WI, where unadoptable Great Danes can live out their lives with love and a homelike environment. The sanctuary is located in rural western Wisconsin and the housing for the Danes is fondly referred to as The Dane Barn.

To make a long story short, the sanctuary has just been informed that the reason we are having water issues in the barn is that the well tank and well pump and basically the whole thing were constructed wrong and over the years it has slowly caught up with us and we now must have the old tank dug out and everything redone properly.  The estimate on this work is $4-$6k.  We are hoping for the low end, and that is what we've set our fundraiser for. 

It's not a dramatic or sexy fundraiser, but it is vitally important to the Great Danes living at the farm to be able to have water access constantly.  Not to mention all the washing of blankets and towels we do on a daily basis.  Please consider a contrubition to this worthy cause.  We take Great Danes from all over the country who would otherwise be euthanized, sometimes for just a minor infraction which resulted in a bite with broken skin, often through no fault of their own.  Or they are just old and their owners can no longer care for them due to incontinence or medical issues.  We take them in and love them and give them a happy life whether they be a year old or ten years old.

Thank you for your help!
