SVAPL Animal Shelter Costs

$3,759 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 28 months

My name is Lisa and I'm the Shelter Manager at the Swan Valley Animal Protection League. We are located in Swan River, Manitoba Canada. The SVAPL has existed for approximately 25 years where the focus was on education and providing spay/neuter vouchers. The shelter/rescue work was established in 2009 and over the years it's grown to the point that we cannot continue without more financial aide. Since 2012 (when we started tracking) we have rescued 689 (to date) dogs and cats.

Although we do get some donations through fundraising, we are just unable to meet the financial needs that the shelter requires. In 2015, our adoption preparation costs were $19,733.00. This only includes animal vaccinations, spay/neuters and veterinary fees. This does NOT include utilities, dog/cat food, taxes, repairs & maintenance or any other kennel operation costs.

We are now appealing to the public for help in order to keep our shelter open and in good working condition. The money you donate will be used mainly toward our adoption preparation costs (spay/neuter/vaccination/vet fees). It will also be used to do repairs and upgrades on our outdoor kennels (we don't have indoor kennels) and perhaps give us enough to build a small dog housing area as we have no warm or dry places for small paws at our shelter.

With your help, tails will be wagging and purrs will be heard throughout the shelter. We will be able to continue rescuing unwanted, lost or abused animals throughout the Swan Valley, the surrounding areas and beyond. Thank you in advance for any amount you can give to us and know in your heart that you are helping at least one animal rest easy tonight in a warm and safe place until they find their forever home.

Thank you!

Wow! Three weeks in and we're just over the $1400 mark! For all those that have donated to help with the shelter costs and keep us sustainable...THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! From the bottom of our hearts we thank you. For all those 200+ people that shared this post we thank you!

Without all your support, we simply just don't exist. We would have NO way to cover vet costs or any of our other shelter costs (electricity, food, supplies etc). It means the world to us that you would donate to us or will be donating to us. We can't survive without your help and the name of the game in life is to SURVIVE. So again...thank you!

Please donate what you can and share with others so perhaps someone else will have it in their personal budget to help us that sees you sharing our plea! THANK YOU!
