Announcing Our Monthly Giving Program

We are looking for interested parties who are able to contribute $5 or more on a monthly basis to the Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet mission of serving our Military and Veteran communities.

If interested, we have an easy way to assist.  Join our group of monthly givers, to be known as: Patriot Supporters.

Donations made by our “Patriot Supporters” will be allocated between our Pet Foster Home “MPA Fund” and our MVP Sanctuary programs.

Patriot Supporters are very important to our efforts and mission.  In fact, they’re the backbone that helps to sustain our work.  And these generous folks are more than just kind, they know that giving monthly allows our organization to spend less time fundraising and more time serving our Military and Veteran Communities.

Help Us “Raise the Roof” and Build a National Office

Since Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet began in January 2005, our “day-to-day operations” have been handled in the CEO’s residence (55-60% of home). Now in 2017 it is time we are working toward establishing an official “national office” to handle these operations with an actual volunteer “Admin Staff” to assist the organization’s CEO.

Today though we are waiting from an estimated cost for a 14’ x 30’ Leland “Chisholm Trail Cabin” from what we know we feel we are at the point that we can officially establish an official “Capital Campaign” to make this project a reality in order to raise $35,000.

Besides being able to have an “Admin Staff” having a separate building, we can meet with other volunteers involved with fundraising in Central TX for the other MVP Sanctuary projects; meet with members of the military and veteran communities and other interested parties. In addition we can plan for activities/events at the MVP Sanctuary.

Full details can be found on our website, including how you can get involved.
