Omaha Gives! 2019 & Pizza West Celebration – May 22


Thank you for your outstanding support of GRRIN during Omaha Gives on May 22nd! We received over $6,000 in donations from almost 90 different donors. The cheer page created by Kristi Miskimins in honor of her adopted GRRIN dog Peaches raised $655 (more than double her goal dollars!). You can view Kristi’s “GRRIN found my FURever Home” cheer page here. GRRIN is experiencing a record year for surrenders, with our all-volunteer rescue team taking in nearly 25 dogs in the first five months of 2019. Your financial help allows us to provide necessary vet care, including eight spay and neuter procedures and the future costs for two dogs diagnosed with cancer.

As always, our Pups on the Patio celebration is a fun time for all and we met some new faces (canine and human) on the 22nd. Please enjoy a few of the pictures we have to share and accept our wholehearted “thank you” on behalf of the beautiful dogs we rescue!

During the 24 hours of giving, Omaha Gives raises millions of dollars for the community and over 900 participating non-profits. The Omaha Community Foundation has brought this outstanding opportunity to the metro for seven years.

This year’s donations will help us cover medical care needed for GRRIN foster dogs. In 2018, the average vet expenses for each of the 29 dogs we rescued was just under $500. We were extremely grateful to have the resources to care for six Golden oldies with loving foster homes and the ability to pay for all of their medical expenses so they can live comfortably.

As of May 1, you can schedule your donation for Omaha Gives! Just click here to go directly to our Omaha Gives donation page.

Or, make your donation on Wednesday the 22nd. The giving begins at midnight with a minimum $10 donation and hourly drawings and prizes make your donations go further. So start gathering your circles and get ready for another great big give-together!

Follow all of the action for Omaha’s 7th day of giving on May 22nd on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
