Paw Print Fundraiser 2017


Our annual Paw Print Fundraiser runs from November 18 through December 31. We are excited to share the amazing work that our recipients do. We are grateful for the support of our customers that allows us to help them. Donations will go to the following organizations:

Colorado:

International Hearing Dog, Inc. (IHDI) is a 501(C)3 non-profit that was formed in 1979 as the first dog training program in the United States for people with hearing loss. Since that time, IHDI has trained more than 1,200 professionally certified hearing dogs. The mission of International Hearing Dog, Inc. is to train dogs to assist persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, with and without multiple disabilities, at no cost to the recipient.

Minnesota:

Twin Cities Pet Rescue

Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) was founded in 2009 and has rescued and placed over 2,000 dogs and cat since then. They have a network of over 100 foster families, including some Chuck & Don’s locations that house foster cats. Foster pets receive optimal veterinary care, high-quality nutrition and basic training in preparation for adoption. To further their mission, lifetime support is provided to all animals adopted through TCPR.

Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP)

The mission of Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP) is to end the suffering and death of Minnesota cats and dogs due to overpopulation. They do this by providing high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to pets in need. MN SNAP has completed more than 92,000 low-cost surgeries since April 2010 for cats, dogs and rabbits. Using conservative litter estimates, MN SNAP’s work has prevented the birth of more than 4.2 million unwanted cats and dogs.

Heading Home K9 Rescue

Heading Home K9 Rescue (HHK9) is a non-profit, no-kill dog rescue that often rescues dogs that may be overlooked. They have a soft spot for puppy mill dog; seniors; big, black mixed-breed dogs; heartworm positive dogs and dogs that have been injured. All HHK9 dogs live in foster homes until they are adopted. This allows the rescue to get to know their personalities and match the right dog to the right home.

Wisconsin:

Can Do Canines

Can Do Canines is the largest provider of assistance dogs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and relies on individual contributions to support its important work. It costs on average $25,000 to train and place an assistance dog. Can Do Canines is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.

Paws First Rescue

Paws First Rescue is fully foster based with no physical shelter or office. All dogs live in volunteer foster homes. Dogs can stay in foster care as little as a week or as long as a year or more. Each dog is spayed or neutered and given all the vet care they need before being available for adoption. PFR often takes special needs dogs such as burns, eye issues, orthopaedic issues, deaf, and more. These dogs have medical costs far above their adoption fee, making fundraising necessary at times.
