If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?
IF selected funds would be used for the medical fund of our rescue and help to save those animals who would otherwise be euthanized. Additionally our medical fund provides us the opportunity to pull in heartworm positive dogs and treat them for limited cost and greatly increase those intakes.
