Funds to Support Pet Friendly Shelter

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

Our capital campaign to build a four-bedroom pet friendly addition to our shelter continues. We frequently have clients who are in desperate need of safe shelter but will not come to the Verde Valley Sanctuary because we cannot accommodate their pets. The current configuration of the 28 bed shelter is often quite crowded and not conducive to adding animals into the mix. We are grateful for the donations that already have come in. It’s a great start but we have a long way to go.

To learn more about the Pet Friendly Shelter Campaign or to donate, please contact Jennifer Perry (928) 282-2755

Pet Friendly Shelter Project

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

48% of people suffering from domestic abuse need help caring for their pets. It’s not uncommon for person to stay with their abuser if they cannot bring their pet, or pets, into our shelter. Bringing pets into an already crowed group house can be very complicated. Most people really need their pets in the room with them; not boarded out. We want to develop an adjoining property (next to our current shelter) into a pet friendly, four-bedroom shelter. This is a cost-effective chance for us without building from scratch. Purchase cost will be $120,000. Modification costs will be $60,000. Our first year operation cost $45,000. Total $225,000. We have started a dedicated capital fund toward this goal. This is an interesting and creative project. (There are only a few domestic violence shelter that take pets.)

Back to School Boost!

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

Back To School Items!! 50% of our shelter residents and Outreach client's are children --often traumatized and now without belongings. They need backpacks, paper, pens, clothing, all types of school supplies. Even your cash donation sent to VVS can be marked "children's school supplies' and we will carefully apply the money to the children - we will take them to Walmart with their mother! Children are our priority. It's critical that we give them the boost they deserve. Domestic violence really sets a child back --often effecting the rest of their life. Help us break the cycle.
