HOME PAGE ARTICLES ...
We want to make sure that you are getting all the latest news and information from GGOH and sometimes we have a lot to share. Therefore, please note that the following articles are found here on our Home page; scroll down through these articles to view.
* CRITICAL CROSSROADS ~ A CALL FOR ACTION! - become a sustaining member and help save a life.
* OCTOBER IS NATIONAL "ADOPT A DOG" MONTH - see below for our October adoption special.
* CLICK TO GIVE - it's FREE, and it's as simple as clicking your mouse.
* DUCK RACE FOR THE RESCUES - winner's announced!
And here's a few general notes on what's happening at GGOH:
* DONATION OF GOODS - UPDATE - While we are sincerely thankful for all of the generous donations that we receive, we would like to make mention to everyone that for the time being, we are no longer in need of cat food, dog food or blankets. We have a reliable food supplier for the months ahead of us and we recently received numerous blankets to keep our animals warm through the winter months and our shelves are full. So, for those who wish to donate to our organization, we would ask that your focus be on our other needs instead. What we need the most going into the cold winter months is monetary donations - our fuel tanks are soon to be running low and will need replenishing, our running vet bills continue to climb as we have been inundated with kittens and, we will be in need of a snow removal service before you know it. We also could use donations of clumping cat litter - all those kittens means more boxes to be placed out with litter. These are just a few of the things we know are coming our way - if you wish to help us out, a monetary donation would really be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!
* OPEN HOUSE - Our next Open House is scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, October 28th; 5pm-8pm. We'd love it if you could join us for a meet-and-greet. We'll have volunteers on-hand to answer questions and give tours of our facility.
* GREGORY'S GIVES BACK - We here at GGOH are so grateful for the support we get from our pet-loving community that we feel the need to express this gratitude and give back. Look for us the weekend of October 16-19 at the Freedom Station in New Richmond. We will be on-site handing out "FREE" hot dogs, chips and beverages. Stop by to say "hello" and have a snack on us. Be sure to introduce yourself if you're a new supporter of GGOH - we're always excited to meet new friends who share in our love of animals!
CRITICAL CROSSROADS ~ A CALL FOR ACTION!
Gregory's Gift of Hope has found itself in a tough spot; a critical crossroads.
For several months now, GGOH has been walking the tightrope of time, hoping to reach the other side without faltering or falling. We have been struggling to keep our facility open to the public due to lack of funds coupled with the intake of several animals that have been in need of critical care. As a rescue organization with a no-kill philosophy, this is very upsetting to all of us here who volunteer our time on a daily basis - we shudder to think that the unthinkable is very near to becoming reality. Day-to-day we hope and pray that we can continue our mission of helping those in need, both those who have yet to cross our doorstep as well as those that are currently in our care. It's stressful and troublesome but, there is hope, and that hope begins with YOU.
It is difficult and heartbreaking to continually ask for help, but it must be done; if we do not ask, we will not receive. We currently have very few who have pledged their help by becoming a monthly sponsor and an even lesser amount of individuals who have chosen to donate on a regular basis. Please understand that we greatly appreciate every penny we receive and to those of you who do donate regularly, your generosity is not overlooked - we are thankful for what you have been able to give and we consider you all part of our GGOH family. Sadly though, our family is quite small. We NEED to grow our support pool and we must do it with a sense of urgency. Now is the time to take action; we are very close to closing our doors but we have faith that this can be turned around.
There are many ways that you can help:
1) PLEASE consider becoming a sustaining member as this is the number one way that will help keep us from going under; you can pledge via PayPal using the "Donate" option above or you can pledge to help on a regular basis via other means (i.e. mailed donations or donations dropped off at our facility in person);
2) Making a payment on our veterinary bills ~ New Richmond Vet @ 715-246-4800 $10,100.00 balance; Hudson Pet Hospital @ 715-386-3511 $4,500.00 balance;
3) Making a donation toward our heating costs for the upcoming winter months ~ an average monthly bill during a mild winter season runs approximately $1,000.00 - $1,350.00; or
4) Pledge to sponsor your favorite rescue or sponsor a rescue who is currently receiving special medical care (ex: we have several rescues right now who are receiving medical care for treatable types of cancer).
While this may be harsh, we cannot hide the truth - without help from the animal loving community which includes people such as yourself, our rescue mission will not be able to continue, and hundreds of helpless animals in need will perish. Please do not let this happen; we know we can turn this around with your help. Make a pledge today and share our mission with your family and friends - sharing our story and our mission will help to take us in the right direction.
For your generosity, compassion, and understanding, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts & paws!
