THE POWER OF PLEDGES:
Pledges are a great way to help out if you are not in the position to physically foster or adopt a dog or cat. Many rescue organizations will post Code Red/Urgent lists/pictures on Instagram + other social media channels. These animals listed as #Urgent or #CodeRed mean that they usually need to be rescued within 24 hours, or they will be euthanized.
••• Individuals will start "Pledging" donation amounts ($5, $25, $50, $100+, any amount really) these donations add up and go towards anyone that sees the post and wants to help by taking action, going to the shelter and rescuing the animal. Almost all Code Red labelled animals have their adoption fees waved but if not these pledges go to the adoption fee, any medical/health/vet bills, food, supplies etc. It is a great and easy way to get involved, with the huge plus being that you just helped save a life •••
We will start posting more pledge requests as we see them. One that we recently helped with was a 1yr old dog named Fey in Miami, FL that had been hit by a car. The shelter labelled her Code Red and after $500+ in pledges a young girl in the area saw the post and drove down to the shelter to adopt Fey. She now has $3,000 of pledges towards her recovery process #spreadhappy
