And the winner is....

Danielle M. from Saugus, CA winner of the $25 gas card. Congratulations to Danielle!!!

Round two has begun, our new goal is $2000 and up for grabs in the drawing will be for a $50 Visa giftcard. Since the stakes have been raised, this round has a deadline of midnight on September 7th. If the $2000 is not raised, no drawing so let's all spread the word.

Donations are trickling in, and we have been granted an extension! As of 5:30 pm Sept. 8th we still need $1,492 to make this happen!

In case you are just tuning in...

Due to many unexpected bills in the last few weeks, Saving Shelter Pets (SSP) is in a bit of a financial crisis at this time. To help us get back on our feet so we can continue helping the animals, we are featuring a "Gift Card Giveaway" fundraiser for the next week or so.

Each person who donates $10 or more during this fundraiser will receive a one-of-a-kind web banner for you to proudly display on your MySpace or FaceBook profile, Blogger page, etc. Additionally, if SSP meets our goal of $2000, one lucky person will also win a $50 Visa gift card.

The Cause:
This fundraiser will help many needy dogs, including one very special family.... Hazel and her pups had a rough start at life. Only four of Hazel's pups survived parvo, and they are still holding on for dear life. They need a few more days of vet care until they are healthy enough to leave. Unfortunately, we just do not have anymore funds left to pay for this additional care. =-( Please help us give this sweet family a better life!

In addition to parvo, Hazel is also heartworm positive. This poor girl has two strikes against her and it is just so unfair. Hazel is a great mommy, she loves people, small children, cats and other dogs. What more can anyone ask from her?

Please consider helping Hazel and her family by donating through Paypal to fundraising @ [remove spaces] ....or simply click the link at the bottom of this message.

Every single donation is extremely appreciated and is TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Here are a few pictures of Hazel and her family. Yes, it's hard to believe these pups all came from the same momma! =o)
