What is #GivingTuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a day of charitable giving worldwide.

You can help make a difference in a pet's life. 

Throughout the year we are faced with medical emergencies for lost and found pets.  Between January 1, 2021 and the beginning of  November 2021, Lost Pet Services provided medical care for over 120 cases for injured or sick strays whose owners were never found and for owned pets who were injured or sick while they were lost.  To date, Lost Pet Services has provided over $90,000 in medical financial assistance.

Most of these pets were hit by cars while they were running scared.  Many needed surgery that their owners were unable to afford and would have had to make the heartbreaking decision to either surrender them to the county to receive care or put them to sleep.

Lost Pet Services wants to keep pets and their families together.  We have a program called the Medical / Pet Assistance Program (Marmalade's Fund) that allows us to do just that. 

We hope you can support us this year on Giving Tuesday so we can continue to offer this much-needed program to strays without families and those with families needing our help.

Faith is just one of the many strays we have helped.  She was found in terrible condition.  She was terribly matted, full of fleas and urinating blood.  She was immediately brought to the vet by one of our fosters and diagnosed with a bladder stone the size of an egg.  She received surgery even though she was a stray without a known owner.  Faith's owner was never found, but she was adopted into an amazing family after receiving surgery and recovering.  She is just one of the lucky ones.
