Small Business Showcase Monthly Raffle Series

To celebrate 15 years of helping labs find their fur-ever homes, we're hosting a monthly raffle event. Each month, we'll partner with a local business to raffle off a product or service that the business has generously contributed. For every 5 dollars donated, your name will be entered into the drawing once. Donate 10 dollars, and your name will be in the pot twice. Donate 50 dollars, and your name will be in the pot ten times.


Many labs come to us heartworm positive, and we fully fund their treatment. Others suffer from skin conditions, allergies, arthritis, cancer, and other conditions that require extensive medical treatment. Your donation will go directly to the medical bills of the labs in our care. 


In years passed, we hosted in-person fundraising events like Pups in the Pool and our annual 5K at Pony Pasture. We hope to return to holding those events again soon, but until then, we'll stay connected with our lab-loving community with these monthly donation-based raffles.
