Sample fundraising email:
I am writing to you today to ask for your help. While people all over the country enjoy summertime fun, more than 60 dogs, 33 of them puppies, sat in a high kill shelter in South Carolina. Alone. Afraid. And, without hope.
I am working to change that. I volunteer with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue to save homeless and abandoned dogs and cats from shelters throughout the rural south. To give them a second chance at a loving home. Dogs (OR CATS) like XXX (PICK FROM WEBSITE) who are waiting for someone to step in and save them.
To do this, I need your help! Please, any amount helps. $25 provides life-saving vaccines. $100 can neuter a dog in preparation for transport and $300 can provide life-saving heartworm treatment. DONATE HERE (INSERT YOUR LINK).
I cannot tell you how much your support means to me!
P.S. Your donation (MAKE LINK) will enable Lucky Dog to save dogs sitting in shelters right now! Please don't delay!
Sample fundraising post:
Choose a photo from the website or make a collage:
Meet XX! Not long ago, this sweet dog/cat was sitting in a high kill shelter without a hope in the world. Then Lucky Dog stepped in and gave him/her a second chance. XX is one of the Lucky Ones, but every day the kennel he/she came from fills back up. Every day another dog/cat faces death -- unless Lucky Dog can save them.
As you know, I volunteer my time to help Lucky Dog save animals who are stuck in high kill shelters. I don't often ask for help, but I need yours now. Please DONATE to my Strut Your Mutt fundraising efforts -- help me save more Lucky Dogs and Cats! (INSERT YOUR OWN LINK)
