Would you like a way to honor or memorialize a pet or person’s life by saving lives?
Are you looking for a way to ask for meaningful gifts for your birthday or other occasion?
Have you ever wished you could do more to give back to pets?
You can easily accomplish any of these in five minutes by doing a Facebook fundraiser for Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund!
I admit, I was a little hesitant to ask for money but I tried one to celebrate my birthday. People loved it! Several of my friends told me how good they felt about helping local families to save their pets. Others said they appreciated skipping the stress of figuring out what to give me and going out on a search. And I felt both cared about and also relieved at not having more “stuff” to deal with in my house.
Bryan and Lindsay’s dog Pappy was recently able to stay for a prolonged hospitalization thanks to the support of Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund. They said they did a fundraiser because they wanted other families/pets to be able to be helped in the future.
Kristina heard about us through a friend and decided to commemorate her beloved pup Ghandi by inviting friends to donate.

"Why You Are Raising Money" Examples
“In honor of the 2nd anniversary of Gandhi's death, I have chosen to raise money in his honor for Ellie's Rainy Day Fund. This organization provides resources, referrals, support, and financial help for owners whose pets desperately need medical care but they cannot afford it.”
Bryan and Lindsay said:
“Ellie's is the reason we have our beloved dog Pappy back home with us!”
“The unconditional love of my fur kids has gotten me through recovery from brain surgery, kept my sanity during graduate school and makes me look forward to coming home no matter what my day has been like. I’d love it if you’d help me celebrate my birthday by giving that gift to others who feel the same about their fur family members who are ill & need emergency or specialty veterinary care.”
