URGENT HELP Needed to Replenish Military Pet Assistance (MPA) Fund

GingerPic
Ginger, veteran’s pet that has been helped through the MPA fund this month

WE NEED YOUR HELP! So far this month we have spent  over $1,200 dollars via our Military Pet Assistance (MPA) fund helping homeless veterans and their companion animals (for necessary veterinarian care and temporary pet boarding). As of this morning we have below $800 in the fund with four open cases (AR, MA, and IN) with two possibly forthcoming from CO and MN.  Therefore we need to raise a minimum of $3,000 between now and 6/30/15  to handle these cases and additional cases expected over the next couple of weeks.  We have applications in for grants and a couple more being worked on, but those take time and no guarantee funding will be available although we have confirmed our program is eligible and were advised to submit the applications.

We hope those who can help will do so and help us spread the word about this need to continue helping our homeless veterans so they can get the “hand up” via the VA or VA approved Homeless Veteran Transition programs across the country.  Please consider doing a third party fundraiser benefiting the MPA fund program as an individual via your employer.  It’s also a good time of year to give your children something to do (dog wash, coin walk, car wash, etc.).

Though deployments are down to a certain degree, helping our veterans, especially the Homeless Veterans, the work is just beginning as the various agencies across the country helping these veterans are learning about our programs and services.

For those who can contribute may do so in any of the following ways:

  • PayPal using email: mpa@guardianangelsforsoldierspet.org
  • Click on the first “Donate Button” on our website (all contributions coming in between now and 6/30/15 will be allocated to the MPA fund program).
  • Check/money order payable to: Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet (Memo Line: MPA) and mail to Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet, 9725 FM 1783, Gatesville, TX 76528-4739.

Thank you all for helping in any way you can. Our veterans (pre- and post- 9/11) need our help and we need your help (donating or spreading the word to others who may be interested in donating) to continue this program.
