Description
Starting November 1, we will host an online Facebook fundraising "event," which will include educational videos for pet parents, giveaways for fun and unique prizes, a raffle drawing for a stay at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, MO, messages from our sponsors and so much more. A schedule of exact events will be posted in the coming week. Just click "going," and you'll be along for the fun, furry ride!
This event is free to attend, and we hope you'll consider donating to Oklahoma Alliance for Animals along the way. There are sponsorships (with benefits for businesses and organizations) available.
To find out why we're hosting this unconventional event, read more from our President and Co-Founder Jamee Suarez-Howard:
Where to begin … this year has been rough. When COVID-19 reared its ugly head in March, we had no idea how dramatically it would impact our organization. Even now, I can’t begin to fathom the full repercussions this pandemic will have on Oklahoma Alliance for Animals and the pets we serve.
We had to cancel our Woofstock adoption event and postpone our annual fundraising gala – Fur Ball – along with numerous other fundraising events we would have normally hosted throughout the year.
Yet, as we cancel or postpone the critical events that financially support our organization, the need for our help skyrockets throughout our community.
Since the pandemic began, we’ve distributed more than 15,000 pounds of dog and cat food to pet parents in need – most struggling because COVID-19 put them out of work. We’re asked daily by frantic and heartbroken pet parents to assist with emergency veterinary procedures to save dogs and cats – who without our intervention, would lose their lives. While animal shelters, fellow rescuers, and community members plead for help with stray, injured, and abandoned animals from every corner of the state. Animal shelters are full. Pets are dying. The heartbreak continues, and the progress our state was making in combating the pet overpopulation problem seemed to come to a screeching halt.
But, I won’t accept this. We must do something. And we need you.
Introducing OAA’s No-Show Furry Fundraiser.
It’s unconventional, but it’s easy. There’s no gala to attend, no need for a babysitter, no need to dress up, no need to be around a crowd. You can make your personal donation or sponsorship to Oklahoma Alliance for Animals from the comfort of your own home with your pet nestled at your feet. You can also participate in all the fun of our online Facebook event!
And while there is no in-person event, that doesn’t mean there won’t be value added for businesses and organizations that choose to sponsor our first ever No-Show Furry Fundraiser. . Email info@animalallianceok.org for sponsorship information.
Please consider making a donation – small or large – to support Oklahoma Alliance for Animals. We’re needed more than ever before, which means you’re needed more than ever before, too.
