Puppy Love, Inc. dog rescue’s annual silent auction and dinner is in September of 2016

March 31, 2016

Puppy Love, Inc. is an all volunteer 501 (c) (3) public charitable organization – tax id number 45-2043095.  Based in Maine, rescue efforts save dogs from Louisiana high kill shelters and place them in loving forever homes throughout New England.  Puppy Love provides full veterinary care to the dogs as well as screening, counseling and support to adoptive families to promote responsible and safe adoption decisions.  Matching families with well-suited dog choices is key. 

Puppy Love has placed over 800 dogs in the past five years.  Puppy Love’s Louisiana associates continue to increase the number of dogs who are spayed and neutered.  The root of overpopulation throughout the country is firmly set in unwanted litters.  Louisiana shelters provide education about the plight of puppies surrendered; even they face euthanasia for the lack of homes.  Death rates for dogs in Louisiana alone are over 100,000 annually.  Nationally, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized each year.

Operational costs far exceed the adoption donation of $395.  The transportation cost for each dog is $175, and each rescue dog receives full veterinary care including wellness exams, vaccinations, heartworm testing and spay/neutering.  Heartworm positive dogs are treated following the American Heartworm Society's recommended 61 day regimen. It is not a surprise that Puppy Love must rely on fundraising activities to sustain its life saving work.

Among the fundraising activities is an annual silent auction, that is also available online, a buffet dinner and live music. Attendance is expected to be over 200 people.  Wouldn’t this be a great way to introduce people to your area!  We would like to promote your region by including a package with lodging, meals, and activities.  Many Southern Maine people think of going to Cape Cod and forget the beauty that exists in their state. Items will be advertised, not only at the auction, but also online where they can be viewed by thousands.   Just think of the thousands of people that will see your destination listed as a donor and the interest that can generate for you business.
