The Season of Giving to Save Lives

As a long-time communications volunteer for SVPP, I’ve watched the organization grow and change in the most powerful way.  Since its inception in 2015, SVPP has evolved from a fledgling rescue group with an amazing rescue vision to a professional-level team with professional-level processes run by volunteers — who take seriously the value of every life.  I am proud every day to be part of this team.

SVPP rescues pets that sometimes don’t have any other option.  Without the extra medical and foster care, rehabilitation and recovery — and even behavioral support, many of these pets wouldn’t have survived.  The examples are numerous and heartfelt.  You can see some of them on our websites (SVPP and Pup Plaza), in our blogsFacebook and Instagram pages, and other social media.  I am awed when I see the commitment SVPP makes to each of its dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens.

The success stories are numerous and joyful. They are made possible by our dedicated volunteers and patient fosters, our skillful vets and rescue partners, and of course, our generous donors.  It is you and the very community that we serve who make this life-saving possible.

As you plan your holiday, year-end and charitable giving, we hope that donating to SVPP can be part of your joy.
