Northwood Animal Hospital and The Animal Hospital and Pet Resort at Southwood are proud to announce that Rescue Relief 2020 has officially begun! This annual benefit is in its 14th year and we hope to continue making big strides to aid our local rescue groups. This fundraiser was created as a way to help raise awareness and the always-needed donations for Tallahassee area pet rescue groups. With your help, we have been able to grow the benefit every year, collecting over $240,000 in food, supplies, and monetary donations. With our hospitals happily funding all of the promotional costs of the event, we are able to transfer 100% of all donations directly to these local groups, helping to aid in their daily operations.
Each year our local pet rescue groups place hundreds of wonderful pets, who were strays or abandoned by their previous owners, into new and loving homes. In addition, these groups also provide animal welfare education and pet-assisted outreach programs for our community.
Items on their wish lists include monetary donations, pet food, treats, collars and leashes, toys, blankets or towels (new or used), and gift cards to local pet stores. Online donations can be made via PayPal by clicking the link below:
