Every week Quincy K-9 Connection volunteers network tirelessly to help animals at risk find placement into rescue organizations. That is just half the work. The other half of our mission is to transport these same animals to the organizations willing to accept them.
Our Saturday mornings start very early. Quincy volunteers arrive at the shelter to prepare all animals for transport, long before most people have even awaken. Once the animals are loaded into the transport van, along with all the required paperwork, a volunteer drives the animals to Springfield, IL. From there, the animals are taken by regional volunteers, in their own cars, on their own dimes, to their final destinations. However, it costs Quincy K-9 Connection approximately $100/week to get the animals from Quincy, IL to Springfield, IL with the van. By sponsoring a transport, you will play a vital role in the lives of the animals we save in a week. You will be providing the first link in a critical chain of rescue.
When we receive your sponsorship, we will give you an approximate time frame for your sponsorship week and a certificate to give the honoree for whom you sponsored the transport. Your honoree will be mentioned on the Facebook post for their sponsored transport. The honoree will also be sent a collage picture featuring the animals on his/her sponsored transport. Want more?
