About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This day (November 27, 2018) celebrates the generosity of giving for the Christmas and holiday season. It stands in contrast to the commercialization of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, over $300M was raised on this single day, with over 2 Million donations, across 150 countries.


About Animal Care Sanctuary

Animal Care Sanctuary (ACS), one of the oldest No Kill Shelters in the US, provides direct care for hundreds of dogs & cats in need, every year. These animals are rescued from puppy mills, hoarding situations, animal abuse situations, special needs, owner surrenders, and areas hit by disaster.


Our supporters, donors and volunteers make our work possible. ACS welcomes your help to raise funds not only to protect the rescued animals, but our communities as well. With your help, hundreds of companion animals that would otherwise not have access to veterinary care and the chance for a forever loving home will get the chance they each deserve.


Our Goal This Giving Tuesday – Raise $5,000 to help with the kennel remodel

  • Our kennel is very old so the remodel is a very expensive necessity.
  • We are currently renovating in phases as we get the money to do so in order to continue offering life- saving care for our animals.
  • Having to cut down on the number of animals in house is preventing us from saving more lives; please donate to help us make a difference for even more animals.


How You Can Help – Donations, Volunteering Your Time & Adding Your Voice

  • For every $1 donated, one of our donors will match donations up to $500, doubling the impact of your donation
  • Facebook together with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation matched up to $2 million in donations to nonprofits on Facebook.
  • If you have good writing, photography or social media skills consider volunteering between now and #GivingTuesday.
  • Organize a #GivingTuesday Team
  • Use the power of your network of friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and businesses to help us get the word out on our goals


The Animal Care Sanctuary, is a registered 501c(3) Public Charitable Organization in existence for more than 51 years. All donations are tax deductible
