A valentine for our pets
I am writing to introduce you to an organization that I’m personally throwing myself behind to help raise much-needed funds, San Francisco Aid for Animals. SFAfA provides charitable grants for critical veterinary services to pet guardians facing financial hardship in the San Francisco community. These grants serve as a safety net for those pets with urgent medical needs that would otherwise result in euthanasia or surrender. My reason for doing this is that I can’t imagine having to choose between saving my pet or paying my rent.
I lost my dog Daisy to cancer on August 29th, 2012. Even though I personally didn’t use the services of SFAfA I was really moved by their mission. To honor and remember Daisy I’m helping launch the Daisy Fountain Memorial Fund. I’m personally making a $5000 donation to launch this fund and with your help looking to raise a total $100,000 to fund next year’s grant cycle.
Happily in this, their first year of awarding grants, many companion animals have already been saved and SFAfA has begun to achieve their ultimate goal, which is to keep families together.
You may have seen the article in the San Francisco Chronicle on SFAfA:
SFAfA is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Please give as much or as little as you can..every bit will go towards reaching this goal and I thank you in advance.
