Omaha Gives!


Omaha Gives Thank You- 2015 Slider

Thanks to the generous spirit of our supporters, $7305 was raised for GRRIN during Omaha Gives! The community gave a total of $8.8 million to 783 different non-profit organizations.

Wednesday, May 25th – Midnight to Midnight

GRRIN is proud to be participating in Omaha Gives! – a 24-hour charitable challenge organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. The online giving holiday will take place May 25th from midnight to midnight. Mark your calendars because we will need your help!  We will be joining over 700 local nonprofits to raise money together and compete for matching funds and prize money. The more money we raise, the larger the percentage of the bonus dollars we will receive. The more donors we get to give to us, the more likely we are to win prizes.

Go to GRRIN’s Omaha Gives! page to make your donation on May 25th, then watch the leader board to see how much money the Omaha community has contributed throughout the day.

Why does GRRIN need donors? The majority of our funds cover veterinary expenses – over $350 per dog we cared for in 2015. As we celebrate 25 years of rescue in 2016, GRRIN will embark on an exciting new international mission to bring five dogs to the Midwest from Istanbul, Turkey. The very first flight of pups will arrive in Chicago at the end of May, and GRRIN volunteers will transport them to Omaha.

GRRIN will continue to cover the cost of spay and neuter procedures, testing and monthly medications for dogs with allergies, along with treatment for dogs with heartworms, epilepsy, and thyroid imbalance. In addition, monthly heartworm and parasite prevention are administered to each foster dog along with annual vaccinations and a microchip. Many of our foster dogs in 2015 were eight years of age and older, classified as seniors. We are extremely grateful to have the resources to care for these Golden oldies with loving foster homes and the ability to cover all of their medical expenses so they can live comfortably in their later years.

This is a Golden opportunity to unleash your generosity! Our goal this year is to raise $10,000. Your donation will help cover the Turkey rescue mission, annual veterinary expenses, and care for three of our senior dogs that will remain in foster homes indefinitely.



THANK YOU for your support!
