COVID’S COMMUNITY IMPACT
Letter from Bari Mears, President
UPDATED NOV 6, 2020
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 November 6, 2020.
Beginning on November 14th, PACC911 Adoptathons resume in person!
While we navigated thru a virtual adoptathon in October, which was successful for such an event, we are anxious and excited to begin live events once again. Our Adoptathons will follow CDC guidelines for everyone’s safety, which includes proper social distancing between rescue booths, limits on numbers of animals and volunteers at each booth, masks and of course sanitizer. The animals need the exposure and surely need adoptive homes. These adoptions allow our partner rescues to make room for those still languishing at county shelters or alone and suffering on the streets.
We welcome our partners back and invite the public to join us to adopt! These beautiful animals need forever homes and families of their own.
Please go to our adoptathon schedule for the listing of currently planned adoption events.
Rescued Treasures Charity Boutique
Rescued Treasures remains open and we thank you for the incredible support and love we have felt from our shoppers. Because of so many people being at home, our donations have been the best ever, so come and shop for the holidays! We are loaded with holiday décor, fabulous clothing and many rescued treasures.
In December our shortened hours will be extended to 4 pm for your shopping convenience.
Our store is set up for safe shopping with CDC guidelines as our protocol, so come and enjoy the most friendly and unique charity boutique in the valley.
Please remember that our store supports our critical care medical program. Covid has impacted our sales year-to-date and we are needing a fabulous November and December to make any kind of profit, thus helping the animals saved by this program.
Please come and shop knowing that your purchases also help to save lives of the sick, injured and most helpless of animals.
Shop and SAVE . . . a life!
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
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.
