A local dog rescuer is looking for support to help keep her business afloat.
Amanda Williamson of Crazy House Rescue in Winchester has organized a Loonie Drive Fundraiser in an effort to raise money for the medical needs of their animals.
As a non-profit, Williamson says the pandemic has seriously limited their ability to help rescue dogs in their care.
“With the restrictions we’ve had, where we can’t do in-person events, it forces us to go online,” Williamson said. “So, this was one way we thought we could make money for the dogs for their vetting.”
To take part, residents are asked to take a jar and place it somewhere in your home or business, and over the course of the fundraiser, place any loose change you have in the jar.
Williamson says since they are unable to collect donations in person, they’re asking participants to deposit funds into their bank account, and then donate the equivalent to Crazy House Rescue.
“You just put a jar anywhere in your house or work environment, then people can just put change in it, it doesn’t have to be a loonie, it can be anything,” she said. “And that funding will really go a long way to helping us.”
The fundraiser runs until July 16th, and residents can send their donations here.
