Puppy power

Parker’s Animal Rescue is hoping to raise $450,000 to hit a matching grant that would allow the local animal rescue to find a permanent home.
Parker’s Animal Rescue was created in 2014 when founder Lisa Parker took in a litter of 6-day old puppies. Now, Parker’s Animal Rescue is a registered nonprofit with a diverse team of foster homes and volunteers to help animals in need.
Parker’s Animal Rescue has never had a permanent home, however. With the fundraising campaign, the animal shelter will finally be able to purchase and construct/ renovate a building for its operations.
In a statement, the animal rescue said the fundraiser is “vital to ensuring that they will have the home they need to provide a safe place for rescues to heal and recover, be a transitional care unit, receive minor medical treatment, host meet and greets for potential adopters, offer day care for foster families, and hold various types of educational and training classes.”
According to the animal rescue, the campaign has already raised 35% of its goal.
“The campaign is structured to ensure supporters have options on contributions, including a one-time donation, monthly credit card auto payments or in a three-year pledge,” the statement said.
