Omaha Gives! 2020

Thank you for participating in the 8th annual 24-hour charitable challenge, Omaha Gives, on May 20th. Golden Retriever Rescue in Nebraska received $6355 in donations from 84 donors. Your contribution will help us cover vet expenses for our foster dogs. In 2020 we have already fostered six senior dogs that require comfort care, while two other dogs underwent expensive, but necessary, surgeries (and are doing well!).

Omaha Gives is organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to show off Omaha’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make our city great. More than 1000 nonprofits participated to raise a record $8.5 million – and they could not have done it without you!

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.

In 2019 the majority of our funds covered veterinary expenses and jumped to nearly $800 for each of the 47 dogs we rescued. Vet care included 17 spay and neuter procedures, cancer treatment for two seniors, expensive corrective surgeries, and palliative care. Adoption fees are $400 per dog, so we rely on generous donors to help our mission of getting dogs the best care they need before going to a new home.

Or, make your donation on Wednesday, May 20th. 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!
