Pets are an extremely important part of our life and I can’t even begin to imagine our family’s lives without our loveable and floppy Basset Hounds, Fred and Lucy. They bring all of us so much joy and comfort, and I know we are fortunate to have them. Unfortunately, there are so many pets and animals who aren’t as fortunate as Fred and Lucy to be part of a loving family like ours.
It breaks my heart to think of pets not having a loving and safe home to be a part of and is why I am so thankful for Global Pets and Animals Foundation who’s purpose is to raise and distribute funds for deserving pet-related registered charities across Canada.
It’s because of foundations such as this that charities like Animal Shelters and Pet Rescue groups are able to provide ongoing care for unwanted, sick, and abandoned pets, as well as help to facilitate adoptions to those people and families who wish to adopt a pet. Since many of these places are run by volunteers, it is hard to get the funding needed to take in and care for these precious animals, as well as find forever homes for them.
It’s easy for anyone to donate and a tax receipt will be issued for any gift of $100 or more. The Foundation has no paid staff and all funds go directly to registered animal-related, Canadian charities, including working animal-therapy organizations.
Global Pets & Animals Foundation has recently partnered up with EchoAge – an online birthday party service that allows kids to donate to a charity through their celebration. They have a collection of custom e-invitations to choose from and once you choose a charity, as well as one or two birthday gifts the child wants, guests can contribute to both through the site. When the party is over, EchoAge splits the funds between you (for the gift your child wants) and the charity you choose. It helps teach children the gift of giving! Such a great idea.
My daughter has a birthday coming up in a few months and she is a huge animal lover. She would love nothing more than to help donate to a deserving charity that will in return help animals in need. I know she is going to love contributing to Global Pets & Animal Foundation, as well as using EchoAge for her party this year.
Global Pets & Animals Foundation raises and distributes funds for deserving local animal shelters and pet charities across Canada. Most of these local groups are volunteer run and need support to keep their lights on and provide food and veterinary care to animals in need. Global Pet Foods created this foundation to become their fundraising department. It is now easier to donate to Global Pets & Animal Foundation through EchoAge and Canada Gives. Both websites make it easier for pet lovers to donate and help homeless pets.
