Sunburst Foundation has been a Nonprofit Canine Rescue since 2003.  While we are still rescuing canines on a small scale, we have concentrated our efforts the past few years in proactive approach.  This entails looking at the “Big Picture” and realizing that unless we stop the in-flow of homeless cats and dogs into municipal shelters, we will never be able to provide rescue to them all.  Sunburst Foundation had a very successful grant program through an anonymous benefactor in which $5000 was used to provide spay/neuter services to around 50 canines.  These were owned canines only and targeted for this grant meaning that they were among the biggest contributors to canine overpopulation in the Pender County area

As the verse goes, “Helping one dog won’t change the world, but it will change the world for that dog.”  This is how our community can work together to make this a reality, 1 pet at a time.

GOT A MINUTE TO TAKE ACTION?
FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP A SHELTER DOG:


IF YOU HAVE 1 MINUTE - Share at least one post of a dog in need of help.

IF YOU HAVE 5 MINUTES - Open your linen closet and remove the sheets & towels you no longer use. Throw them into a bag and leave them by your front door to drop off at the shelter the next time you go out.

IF YOU HAVE 20 MINUTES - Create a flier to post in local pet shops listing all free/low-cost spay and neuter programs in your area.

IF YOU HAVE AN ENTIRE DAY - Visit your local shelter and ask how you can help. Inquire about their volunteer program and meet some of the staff. Then, get to work!

IF YOU HAVE THE GIFT OF TIME THAT KEEPS ON GIVING - Volunteer regularly at your local shelter. Run donation drives in your area. Contact your elected officials and encourage them to fight BSL. Bring your Pit Bull into the community and educate others on the AWESOMENESS that is the ‘breed’. Think outside of the box, gets your hands dirty, and MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

And then look into the eyes of a shelter dog knowing that you just made difference.

Thank you!
