Being a mother is tough, and I can't imagine doing it alone, on the streets, in a dirty place! Because you share our videos, someone knew to call for help!
Hello everybody, it's Eldad, the founder of Hope For Paws. Before telling you about Waffles and her babies, I wanted to share my concerns with you as those keep me awake at night (it's after midnight and I still have work to do). As the world is still struggling with the pandemic, times are tough here too. Veterinary care is extremely expensive, and with AT LEAST 10 complex surgeries every week, and with dozens of hospitalized animals that we help every week, we have been paying bills at a faster rate than we're raising funds.
In general, it's hard for me to ask for help... all my life I found myself having to figure things out by myself, but we're in a tough spot and I am nervous writing these lines because I know we have many more animals that will need our help in the coming weeks, months and years.
The good news is that our power is in numbers - we're a huge community here on , so I am not asking for large donations, but instead, I am asking for MANY of you to help us with small recurring donations. Recurring donations enable me to know every month how much funds we have available, and that determines how much we can do. We LOVE our work, we would LOVE to do even more, and we can only do it with your support: www.HopeForPaws.org
It's critical for me that you understand that our average donation is $12. Think about it... all the Hope For Paws videos you watched, all the surgeries performed, all the lives you have seen transformed, all the happy wags and meows - all of this is happening from your $12 donations!
I can't imagine my life not being able to do this work, and I really hope you can join us today with just a $5 donation (16 cents a day). I promise to work harder and post more videos so you'll see your donation in action 😎👍
The math is actually cool now that I am thinking about it.
$5 a month is 16 cents a day (a dime + a nickel + a penny).
$12 a month is 40 cents a day (a quarter + a dime + a nickel).
OK, back to this story 😊
I just need to warn you... this video is not for everybody and kids (maybe some adults) should watch it with their parents, so please go ahead and call your mom to sit and watch this one with you. I have seen this miracle happen so many times since I was a young kid, and even now, decades later, I am still amazed at this beauty created by nature.
JoAnn Wiltz and Katie McKittrick handled the whole situation beautifully, and I am so happy to share this video with you - the timing with Mother's Day couldn't be more perfect ❤️
We created a special Mother's Day card here that you can send to every mother you know and love - remember, your sister who adopted a kitten is also a mom, your aunt, your friend who has kids (humans or canines), your teacher, and even I feel like a mom to so many animals: www.HopeForPaws.org/Mothers_D...
When you share our videos, you are helping us so much so please help us spread the word, and PLEASE let me know if this is an OK video for you to watch and if you would like to see more like these.
