On Tuesday, May 6, 2014, San Antonio will come together for 24 hours of nonprofit giving during The Big Give S.A. It’s San Antonio’s first ever giving day, and it’s your chance to make a real impact on The Cannoli Fund. Your gift will help us become eligible for prize money and matching dollar opportunities that will fund spay-neuter programs and emergency medical assistance for dogs and cats in the King William and Lavaca neighborhoods. To date, we have helped 214 animals in the two neighborhoods.
Your donation will help animals like Frank. Frank, a sweet and sociable one-year old stray, was found wandering in King William on Monday, April 28. Hungry, thirsty, and covered in fleas and ticks, Frank was immediately taken to the vet where he was diagnosed as heartworm positive but otherwise healthy. The vet explained Frank would not make it until age two without treatment for this fatal disease. As a King William stray, this lucky dog was eligible for The Cannoli Fund’s Cannolicare program and Frank began the first round of treatment the next day. After his two-month-long treatment ends, he receives all of his shots, a microchip, and after being neutered, Frank will be ready to find his forever home. Without support from donors like you, Frank’s prognosis would have been very poor. But with your support, Frank will live a long and healthy life!
Giving is easy! Just visit The Cannoli Fund’s Big Give S.A. Donation Page. The Cannoli Fund will only receive donations through The Big Give S.A. website on Tuesday, May 6.
Thank you in advance for your support and for joining us in our efforts to reduce the number of homeless animals and to improve the lives of cats and dogs in San Antonio. Your gift will make our city a better place for all its residents . . . feline, canine, and human!
