IMPORTANT READ FOR DONORS: MAKE YOUR DONATIONS COUNT … DOUBLE!!

IMPORTANT READ FOR DONORS: MAKE YOUR DONATIONS COUNT … DOUBLE!!
Attention Amigos de los Animales Donors!!!
Your donation can count for double!
How????
Corporate matching gift programs!!!! Of course!

Corporate matching gift programs are charitable giving programs setup by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees nonprofit organizations:

THAT’S US!!! Amigos de los Animales!!!

For example, if you work for Bank of America, lets say, and YOU donate $100, Bank of America will double the donation by ALSO DONATING $100.

Did you know that more than 15 million employees work for companies with matching gift programs? A few examples include:

Johnson & Johnson – Triples donations with $2:$1 matches for current employees while also doubling donations for retirees.

Bank of America – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $5,000 annually per employee.

Home Depot – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $3,000 annually per employee.

Last year we received matching gifts from Johnson & Johnson as well as American Express!

Last year we received over $10,000 in matching gifts! We know many more of our donors work for other companies with matching gift programs we’ve set a goal of raising $20,000 for 2018: Doubling our Matching Gifts from these programs!

Help us get there!!

  1. CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW!
  2. CLICK HERE TO CHECK TO FIND OUT IF YOUR EMPLOYER WILL MATCH! Fill out your company’s requirements.
  3. You ask: Do I have to complete the requirements??? That sounds like work...

We wish we could complete the process for you, but unfortunately the company employee has to
do it. We’d love to help you through the process though. Contact us with any questions!

Didn’t see your company listed on our Double the Donation page? Wait! Don’t despair! Make sure to check with your HR department as your company may offer other benefits for your donation; or may be new to corporate matching!

If we meet our matching gift goal of $10,000 for the remainder of 2018, we’ll be able to rescue more dogs and you’ll be a crucial part of this!

In 2018, we have rescued and rehomed 94 dogs so far!
Help us continue rescuing! Donate,Then Double!

Prevention of Cruelty of Animals in April 2018

Prevention of Cruelty of Animals in April 2018

This is Titán. One of our volunteers found this lovable bull-nosed terrier wandering in the street by himself. But that is not the worst of it.

Titán has whiplashes up and down his back! WHHAAT!!!

How could any person do this??? But yet it is so prevalent that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) dedicated the month of April to specifically right this: the Prevention of Cruelty against Animals.

Year-round, rescue organizations and dedicated individuals fight animal abuse and cruelty that can come in so many forms: punishments, neglect, hoarding, inhumane factory farming and death for sport or fashion. While it is people that are causing this pain, people can also make a difference.

Amigos de los Animales, along with Puerto Rico’s Health department and the Career Development Institute based in New Jersey, annually coordinates a week-long course to certify people as Animal Control Officer/Cruelty Investigators. So far, approximately 298 Officer/Investigators have been certified.

All animals deserve to live a life free of intentional infliction of pain caused by the whims, desires, or pleasures of humans. It is up to us to make this happen!

Email Amanda@amigosdelosanimales.org NOW if you are interested in taking the 2019 course (tentatively scheduled for end of Jan./beginning of February), and we will put you on the list to be sent a registration form. Our 2018 course was cancelled due to Hurricane Maria, but you can read the newsletter HERE. 

Titán is a victim of abuse. It is ironic to think that He is one of the lucky ones. He was at least picked up, and is being cared for and rehabilitated. He will always have his scars, however, as a reminder of the power of people.

DONATE NOW! Help us in our fight against Animal Abuse!
