3R Rescue has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. 3R Rescue hopes to raise much needed funds to purchase a Digital X-Ray Machine for their new Mobile Vet Clinic.
On Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 4-7 p.m., 3R Rescue will be at Steady Eddy’s Coffee House at 9 Main St., where they will host a live phone bank and donation center. People can take this opportunity to come by and make a donation in memory of the Steady Eddy’s mascot, “Eddy” the cat. There will be light refreshments, wine and coffee. Participants can learn about the Digital X-Ray Machine, and about 3R Rescue’s mission to save more dogs.
Those unable to join can still donate at www.3rrescue.org, Facebook/3rrescue to give by credit card or PayPal. Checks can be sent by mail to 3R Rescue, PO Box 608, Winters, CA 95694.
#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
About 3R RESCUE
3R Rescue is a nonprofit dog rescue located in Winters, whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need of a second chance. Dogs are provided medical care, quality nutrition and the opportunity to de-stress and socialize in a home environment, enabling them to be ‘good citizens’ in their new life. Dogs are rescued from rural and under-sourced shelters that do not have adequate medical support, staff or facilities and few potential adopters coming to the shelter. Euthanasia rates at these shelters are extremely high (as much as 80 percent).
According to Linda Palagi Lynn, President of 3R, some of the shelters 3R Rescue helps are killing 40-50 dogs every day. Many of these dogs are adoptable and are there through no fault of their own. The rescue hopes that Giving Tuesday will enable them to raise funds to expand their programs and save more dogs. Giving Tuesday is also an opportunity to raise awareness and find new volunteers.
