Dear Lifesaving Friends,

Summer months are usually a challenging time for nonprofit fundraising. The number of animals in our care remains the same during the summer; however, this time is typically seen as an “off season”. This July, we launched our first Hello Summer Pet Photo Contest to help us fill the gap this summer. We were excited about the contest and prizes, yet we weren’t sure how many people would participate. Our supporters jumped at the opportunity to showcase their beautiful pet, resulting in 183 entries and raising $27,103! Thank you to those who participated and helped to make this first year a HUGE success! We hope you can join us on September 10 at Alamo Beer Company as we congratulate our winning pet, Prescott, and reveal his winning beer can label!

The animals in our community need us year-round, and summer is no exception. We continue to be boots on the ground, seven days a week, working hard to save as many animals as we can. We have hundreds of beautiful cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies in our care that need a loving family. Please help continue to spread the word about our available animals. Thank you for your continued support for our animals and lifesaving work. Most often, we are their last chance. 

With hope and gratitude, 



Rebecca Mayberry
Executive Director 




You Made this Possible!
