Ellie's Angel Tree Fundraiser

We are extending our offer to match donations through the end of December! We put a $1,000 match on the table for Giving Tuesday and raised a fair amount thanks to generous followers, but we still have matching funds available and we want to keep it going!

We know how hard it is to plan for the financial impact of a pet's illness or injury - especially this time of the year. We see too many families have to make hard decisions about what they can do to help their beloved four-legged family member. Every little bit helps to replenish this fund that has helped our patients like Chico, Georgette, Palmer, Hudson, Mosha, and Koda and many other pets all over the Miami Valley. Partner with us to help keep a pet with their family this holiday season.

Ellie's Rainy Day Fund relies on donations to keep funds available to those in need. We want to replenish funds used this and raise even more. Every dollar donated through us stays in the Bigger Road fund. Help us give the gift of YES this year to friends, family, and neighbors in our community that have pets in dire need of medical care.

This December, for a minimum donation of $5, we will match your donation and will hang a photo or a snowflake on our Angel Tree in honor or memory of a beloved pet or pet owner! Partner with us to help keep a pet with their family this holiday season. We are accepting donations at both our Kettering and Springboro location. Can't make it to the clinic. Donate online at elliesrainydayfund.org/donate/ or directly through Facebook. Comment on this post with a name or photo that you would like us to hang on our tree, or private message us the information. We can even take donations over the phone! Thank you for helping us spread some holiday cheer this season and into 2019!
