Support Love On Wheels!
Those of you who follow HSFM closely know that we don’t ask for money very often--we hold fundraisers and remind you of our Mercy Fund and other opportunities to support our efforts financially, but you don’t see desperate pleas for funds to save an animal. That is because we don’t take in animals without knowing we have the resources--both financial and logistical--to properly care for them.
So we hope that you’ll know that we really do need the support of the community to keep Love on Wheels going.
The Love on Wheels program’s mission is to alleviate the dog overcrowding problem in DFW area shelters by transporting adoptable dogs to areas where demand for adoptable dogs cannot currently be met. HSFM pays for all the veterinary care to prepare a dog for transport to our partners back east. None of that cost is recouped with an adoption fee like dogs that we place up for adoption here in Texas. The receiving group gets an adoption fee, but that goes to pay the cost of transporting the dogs. Therefore, Love on Wheels MUST have some means of raising money in order to continue...and considering that in our first two months, we saved 40 dogs from local shelters, we definitely want it to keep going and growing!
We’re asking you to give, and we’ve made it easy by creating levels of support to fit any budget. It costs HSFM approximately $150 to send a dog the 1500 miles to DeWitt, NY and give him or her a chance at a new life through Love on Wheels. When you sign up to be a Love on Wheels supporter, we'll email you a picture and biography of a Love on Wheels dog YOU helped save. At the Long Haul Trucker level, we'll also send you a Love on Wheels t-shirt. Please sign up today to be part of this lifesaving program!
