Regular readers to this site are familiar with my association with Planned Pethood, the non-profit, all-volunteer Northwest Ohio based organization that has saved and found homes for thousands of cats and dogs since its inception. In 2007 alone the group saved over 2,000 cats and dogs, making it second in the area only to the Humane Society in its ability to rescue animals.
My wife and I have been involved with Planned Pethood for almost two years now, starting as adoptive owners, moving into roles as foster parents to dogs, and lately also serving to screen prospective adoptive parents and doing home visits. I can wholeheartedly endorse Planned Pethood as one of those exemplary charitable organizations that provides a highly efficient use of donated funds.
Recently the organization has encountered some unexpected expenses. Several litters of rescued puppies came down with parvovirus, saddling Planned Pethood with many thousands of dollars in veterinarian fees. In addition, a rescued Westie-poo named Jordan needed a leg amputation, which added to the financial burdens of the group.
If you have a few extra dollars to donate, I suggest that Planned Pethood would be an excellent vehicle for your generosity. Follow this link to the Planned Pethood donation page, and you will see a variety of donation options and payment methods to assist this worthy organization.
Readers whose companies participate in the United Way can designate their contribution to go to Planned Pethood by writing in the group's name on the third section of the pledge form. In addition, many employers will match your personal donation to Planned Pethood. If your company has a matching gift program, please mail the form along with your donation and PPI will process it.
Thank you for your consideration of this request!
