COVID’S COMMUNITY IMPACT
Letter from Bari Mears, President
To Our PACC911 Supporters and Friends
In light of the continuing COVID-19 situation, we would like to update you about what is happening with PACC911 and our Affiliates as of June 10, 2020.
Rescued Treasures Charity Boutique
On May 10, 2020 PACC911 was able to open Rescued Treasures with temporary shorter hours. We are following CDC recommendations and using sanitizer, masks and social distancing protocol. We welcome our shoppers back and invite new friends to come and enjoy our special store that saves lives with the proceeds from each sale! We also welcome donations of your gently used clothing and household treasures.
Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry
Chuck Waggin’ is continuing to raise funds for pet food donations to be ordered on Chewy.com. Limited deliveries are occurring thanks to our committed volunteers and we are taking food donations on a case by case basis. We are not taking new clients at this time. If you are interested in volunteering or donating, please go to www.chuckwaggin.org or call 602.734.4117
Homeless Pets During Covid
We have been extremely busy fielding owner surrender calls during lockdown. Since March 1, 2020, PACC911 has assisted 274 animals with medical needs through our Critical Care Program and Heidi’s Rescue Fund, of course in partnership with our PACC911 Partners.
Glimmer of Hope Fundraising Luncheon & Adoption Events
We are cautiously moving forward with our plans for adoption events in the fall as well as our fundraiser, “Glimmer of Hope” scheduled for October 11th. Please stay tuned for more information.
We are avidly working to coordinate a Zoom Orientation for new partners (or any partner who would like to attend), this Summer. We are also revising our Best Practices document to reflect more robust transport detail, in light of the “Who Saved Who” tragedy. Additionally, we are planning to do an educational series this Summer/Fall and will be sending out information as dates are set.
What you can do to help
Many are still asking what they can do to help during this crisis, here are some ways that you can help or spread the word of what is needed.
The shelters are at capacity and it’s only going to get worse. We can help dogs and cats if we have a safe, loving foster home for them. Please DO apply, and our partners will work out the details with you.
No amount is too small, and it all goes to supporting current and future dogs and cats, rabbits, etc. and their medical needs. Donate now!
Sponsor a family for Chuck Waggin’
Chuck Waggin’ will be putting on their Facebook page no later than 3/20/20 a list of families who need sponsorship for pet food. The opportunities will be posted and you can “adopt” a family and send the monetary donation to the link that Chuck Waggin’ provides and Chuck Waggin’ will order the food/litter needed and have it shipped directly to the low income family.
Share our posts, encourage people to foster for rescues, and adopt from shelters.
Please note that many veterinary practices are still limiting the people allowed into their offices to staff only at this time, and may have changed their hours. Reach out to your practice so that you’re aware of the procedures they’ve implemented to not only keep everyone safe, but to also ensure that your pets receive necessary care.
Thank you to our partners!
PACC911 would like to thank our rescue partners for going above and beyond the call of duty in doing their diligence to ensure the safety of animals, staff and volunteers.
And lastly, please continue to remain safe and stay away from others as much as you can until this virus gets under control. PACC911 continues to remain committed to the rescue community and appreciate all the positive work our partners and friends are doing.
