    Hey FC'ers , I'm a volunteer /fundraiser for an Animal Rescue Group in NYC Called Rescuzilla. We are a dedicated group of people that make a difference in homeless dogs and cats lives by getting them out of the shelter, fostering them and finding them forever homes.
    https://www.facebook.com/RescuzillaNYC

    Rescuzilla, tends to get the older, not as young and cute animals out, that are usually overlooked by the general public. They are the ones that get Euthanized first, and most animals have about a week in the shelter system before they are killed . There is just not enough space and 100% of the animals in the shelter contract Kennel Cough or URI's -that fast tracks them to euthanasia.

    We also do community outreach -Part of the solution to ending pet homeless is preventing it in the first place. We are proud of our growing project, No More Hump Day, which helps spay & neuter animals belonging to the public. While we're at it we also assist in getting them vaccinated and microchipped.

    It takes a lot of $ to rescue, foster and pay for medical bills. Most of the animals we spring need neutering, vaccinations, microchipping and dentals. We make sure all the animals are in good health and ready for new homes.

    We are a 501c3 registered charity.

    Can you help me, help them? Any donation is appreciated , any amount makes a difference. You can also join our team and raise $ for us, you don't have to walk:lol: You can also join a team in your area ;)

    So thank you for reading this, if you can help, that would be AWESOME:tup: The walk is in Sept, so you have time to save a $1 or 2 for us -or more ;)

    I've always have more heart for animals than for people.. I hope one day i can do something that noble for my favorite creatures - The Cat Family :) ... i feel like they deserve help because we maimed their environment with our civilization !
    Great cause VV !

    Thank you, it is a great cause. I was a Veterinary Nurse for many many years, but had to give that up 11 years ago because i developed an extreme skin allergy to cats :rolleyes: so i do what I can to still feel like i'm making a difference in these animals lives;)

    I love rescue groups! We have 13 cats and 4 dogs, all rescued! :nod:

    We also have a 4 cat TNR colony on our property as well. We consider them our furbabies too, even though they are mostly feral. Over the years, they have allowed us to pet them once in a while. :lol:

    Now people are going to think we are crazy. :lol:

    I liked your Facebook page. :)

    This is my type of thread. Will donate as soon as I sort out my bank account (which is currently set to 'deposits only') to stop an ex-gf from runing my life :lol: Then that money is going straight to a dog! Direct depositing it into the dog's account, or cat. Whoever needs it!

    One way to inspire donations that may be a win-win could be to advertise that you would be giving a percentage of a particular classified sale to this cause.
    I have some stuff to list for sale soon, would something this be okay to mention in a listing?

    Happy to help! Wish I could afford more, thank you for doing what you do!!! It's people like you thank make the world a better place:clap:

    Surely other members can spare a couple bucks from the "vape fund" to save an animal?

    Edit- I just realized I hope I am SS, I told him he didn't need to post that I donated, so I just realized I might be a douche taking someone else's thanks lol my bad if so
