Hello GARD Supporter!

Thank you for being a continual supporter of GARD.  All of your generosity thus far has been greatly appreciated by us and the animals that you have helped save!

We hope that you can help us on our next endeavor.  Our shelter is packed to the capacity with many animals who are deemed “unadoptable” due to behavioral issues.  As you are aware we are a no-kill shelter which we are very proud of but at this time we have hit a point where we need more space to save more lives.

There is a piece of property located next door to the GARD shelter which we have been desperately attempting to purchase.  Unfortunately, we have been hitting road blocks at every corner.  We have recently been able to reach an agreement with the owner and we are trying to raise as much money as we can to purchase this property so we can grow our organization. Because of the continuous financial burdens of running a shelter, we have not been successful with gathering the funding we need.

We are hoping and praying that you or someone you know may be able to help us.  The property already has a building on it which we plan to use for our administrative offices, our meet and greet location for potential adopters, an indoor cat room as well as an indoor puppy room. There will also be more land for sanctuary areas and play yards.

This purchase has the potential to be HUGE for the expansion of GARD and we foresee great things to come for the abandoned animals still out there looking for a safe place to live until they find their forever home.

With great regret, we cannot enter into this endeavor without much help from generous people like you!  We need a minimum of $40,000 raised to be able to purchase this property.

Can you help us?  Do you know others who can help? 

Please, we are desperate for your help!  If you can donate anything at all to help us purchase this property, the animals that we will be able to continue to save will be eternally grateful!

Your donation is tax deductible. Thank you for your consideration and continued support!

UPDATE: We were able to purchase the property!! We still need financial assistance with making loan payments and with renovations, so any help is greatly appreciated. Any building supplies or fencing that can be donated would also be wonderful. We are so excited about this opportunity to grow and thank all of our supporters!
