As you all may know, we are a very small rescue and depend 100% on funds raised by donation and fundraisers. It has only been in the past couple of years that we have actively been trying to increase our rescue program to be able to assist more, and perhaps not as healthy, Poms as we have done in the past. It’s a constant struggle to keep funds coming in keeping up with funds going out. This has been especially difficult this past year with Bailey, Frisco, and Gibbs all requiring so much medical care.
All the funds we raise always go towards medical care for the rescues we take in. Food, shampoo, toys, brushes, etc.. are all paid for by the foster parents or donated through our Amazon Wish List (search for Pomeranian Club of Central Virginia if you are interested in donating items), our annual membership dues pay for the Virginia SCC fee and our annual insurance premiums, and all other costs are absorbed by members.
One of our goals for 2017 is to become a 501(c)(3) organization. Obtaining this status will make us eligible for programs like AMAZON SMILES which will give all our supporters an easy, no fuss way to give a little back to us every time they shop. It will also enable us to hopefully apply for some grant funds as well as pull Poms from shelters that will not currently allow us to pull from them.
Now through March 31, we are holding a Yankee Candle Fundraising event from now through March 31 to raise funds for future veterinary care and the $400 IRS filing fee to obtain the 501(c)(3) status. Yankee Candle gives us 40% of all sales and the items are shipped directly to you! There are currently 70 items under $15!
