I am writing today to ask for your help. We're almost at the end of National Guide Dog Month, and we’re still shy of our goal to raise $1 million. We need your help to make any donation online before September 30th. You can donate online right now at http://www.petco.com/guidedogs
A single guide dog costs more than $40,000 and takes two years to train. There is no government funding for guide dogs, so they rely on private donations to keep the programs going. Every seven minutes someone in America becomes blind or visually impaired, so the need is great; won’t you help with a donation in any amount?
Please consider making a donation online before September 30th at http://www.petco.com/guidedogs it is quick and easy to donate.
Thanks in advance for your support for National Guide Dog Month. Feel free to share this post with anyone else you know, we need to get the word out to hit our million dollar fundraising goal these last few days.
