Below is information regarding donations collected by Facebook & PayPal.
Friends of CountyPets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The donations help tremendously with rescuing animals out of the Harris County Animal Shelter through foster programs, transport programs, adoption, and rescue groups. They pay for veterinary care (spay/neuter, heartworms, skin infections, broken bones, etc), food and boarding. All rescues are run by people like you and me - animal advocates that work hard to save lives, treat and find new homes. Donations are the main funding source for all programs. Donations help encourage rescues, fosters and more to tag animals if they know they will have the means to care for the animal until they place with a new fur-ever family. Think of it as crowd-funding to save a life from the Harris County Animal Shelter.
HOW DO WE COLLECT DONATIONS?
We are currently using two main methods to collect donations: PayPal and Facebook.
All donations or campaign fundraisers made for restricted causes stay with those programs.
