 DONATION AND FUNDRAISING QUESTIONS

Who benefits from the proceeds of the Mutt Strut?

100% of the proceeds benefit the Greenville Humane Society.  GHS is one of the largest no-kill facilities in the Southeast and found homes for over 6,400 animals in 2018. The money raised from this event will go towards sheltering, feeding and vaccinating all of our animals, as well as providing medicine for sick animals in our foster program.

I have offline pledges/donations that I would like to enter. How do I do that?

You can mail checks to our facility, but please drop off cash donations in person.

How do I raise money for my participation and to support the cause?

Above all, be persistent and explain to people how their donations will directly impact the life of a homeless animal.

Here are some examples of the lifesaving services made possible by their donations:

$15 provides shelter, care, and food for a hungry animal for 1 day.

$30 provides formula to feed an orphaned, newborn puppy or kitten for 6 weeks.

$35 provides medical care (spay/neuter surgery & vaccines) for a homeless puppy or kitten

$50 ensures that a sick shelter animal has the opportunity to receive foster care.

Here are some tips to help you reach your goal:

Tell your friends and family. Inform them why you are participating in this event and how their donations could positively impact the lives of homeless pets. Ask them to make a donation in honor of you or a beloved pet.
Use social media. Post frequent fundraising updates on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
Use snail mail. Compose personal letters and send them to your neighbors, relatives and friends. Proved them with a stamped return envelope and make donating a breeze!
Ask for support. Ask your employer, parents, relatives, or friends to match the funds you raise.
Celebrate your birthday. Ask friends to donate in lieu of presents.
Offer a service. Babysit, wash cars, mow lawns, or pet sit for donation money. You can also sell lemonade, baked goods, or have a yard sale!
Throw a party. Have all of your guests bring a donation!
