Vinny the Pug's 1st Annual Fundraiser seeks to Raise $1,000,000 for One Thousand Pet Rescues
Longtime pet rescue Advocate and Supporter, Vinny the Pug has launched the mother of all fundraisers as he seeks to Raise and Divide $1,000,000 among Pet Rescues. One Thousand rescues would each receive $1,000 plus fundraiser training and support.
On February 11th, Vinny the Pug is kicking-off the most ambitious Pet Rescue Fundraiser ever. His 100-Day Fundraiser seeks to raise $1,000,000 to divide amongst 1,000 rescues and animal welfare groups. More importantly than the fundraiser itself, Vinny's medium term objective is to help U.S. and Canadian pet rescues abandon the "donations based" fundraisers nearly all are using.
TOO MANY HEALTHY PETS DIE BECAUSE OF OBSOLETE FUNDRAISERS Nearly all rescues use obsolete fundraisers that were designed at the beginning of the animal humane movement. They involve telling horrific stories of animals in distress, showing pictures to support their plea, a crossing of fingers and then the long, hopeful wait. Unfortunately, ineffectual fundraising is greatly contributing to the tens of thousands of healthy animals who are being killed every day. In the U.S. alone, that numbers to about 4.5 million animals.
FUNDRAISING FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Vinny the Pug is creating a totally new generation of fundraisers that are more appropriate for these economic times. An example of one of his most successful models is the sale of Vinny the Pug's own Private Label wines that are generating huge commissions for rescues who participate with this model.
ANNUAL 100-DAY FUNDRAISER
There are many who believe that the NO-KILL problem can never be solved because it is just too big. Vinny the Pug believes otherwise and is on a Ten Year journey to help stop the killing. You can contribute to ending the killing by visiting and making a contribution at Vinny's website and more importantly, by spreading the word and encouraging everyone you know to pitch in as well. With your help, "we can" end the massive killing of healthy animals in the life times of tens of thousands of animal everyday.
