The Issue: Rescued Dogs Without Proper Identification
Most dogs that are rescued require extensive medical treatment, including dental examinations and vaccinations. They also require items such as secure collars, leashes, and microchips. These items help ensure that if a dog is ever lost, it can be properly identified and returned to its owners instead of ending back up in a shelter.
The Campaign: Distributing Dog Collars, Leashes, and Microchips
If 45 people donate $9 or $27 to this Grassroots campaign, then Ginger’s Pet Rescue can distribute collars, leashes, and microchips to at least 15 rescued dogs. Each additional $27 raised will fund a collar, a leash, and a microchip for another dog. Providing the dogs with collars, leashes, and microchips will ensure they can be properly identified if they ever become lost. Donors who contribute $27 and register their donation will also receive a photo of a rescued dog and a GPR bracelet.

Ginger’s Pet Rescue
Ginger Luke rescued her first dog in 2006—a dachshund that was kept locked in its owner’s bathroom and was in danger of being put down. After paying the pet’s owner $50, she retrieved the dog and began networking with her friends to find it a loving home. Today, Ginger's Pet Rescue continues this mission of saving as many dogs as possible from being euthanized. Since its establishment, it has found homes for more than 5,000 dogs. Volunteers from the organization rescue the dogs from shelters across the region, provide medical care and temperament examinations, and place them in loving, permanent homes.
