Collect Donations

Registering is the first step in helping the animals. To make an even bigger impact, we encourage you to collect donations from your family, friends and colleagues. The top individual and team fundraisers will even win prizes. If every participant collected just one $25 pledge, we’d raise another $75,000! That is more than half of all our vet bills!
