Fundraiser  Events: bARK once

All of December- Online

Ark animal centre’s 2017 expenses paid campaign   Have you been wondering what all the noise is around the bARK Once campaign? Good because we have put together some information about it just for you We have already had such an overwhelming response from our supporters and it has given us so much hope for 2017. The objective of the campaign is to get lots of little donations going to alleviate the pressure for fundraising during the year. Meaning the fantastic team that works and volunteers at the shelter can focus on the wellbeing of the pups and dogs.
Generally fundraising takes up vital time and resources throughout the year , because funds are required for caring for the puppies and ensuring they have a safe clean space to stay until their forever home is found. We have put together some infographic pictures to put into context why the funds are needed. Once you know this is a cause you can get behind , please follow the link below and donate , but don’t stop there , share with your friends , tag them and inspire them to be a part of the change. Again don’t stop there ! Come visit the shelter and see how your donation made a difference in the lives of these puppies . https://www.backabuddy.co.za/december-for-the-dogs
