secure servers, or mail a check. In addition, the
Jan Flagg Fund is a special-use fund to assist with critically
ill Springers we encounter.

donate the money to rescue. If you do some advertisement beforehand, people will donate items for the sale.
Be sure to ask family members, friends, neighbors, and area merchants for donated items.

||Check where you work and see if they have a program where they donate money to nonprofit organizations
as a way to help groups their employees do volunteer work for. Check in your community and see if anyone in your
area has experience in writing grants. Ask if they would be willing to help a rescue group write out an
application for a grant.
|Neuter your pets and educate others
||Help us stop the overpopulation of pets. Help educate your friends, children, and family members
about responsible pet ownership. Be sure they know what a Forever Home is, and help them learn how to care for
their pets. SPAY/USA is a national referral service
