GREAT FALLS — The Electric City Pittie Committee is coordinating its annual RezQ Dogs winter drive for dogs in need.
For two more days, donors can stop by one of four location (see below) to pick up a wish tag and bring in the unwrapped item for RezQ Dogs, a non-profit organization for abandoned and rescued dogs in Dodson.
Erin Kolczak, ECPC president, says she started this annual fundraiser to help RezQ, since they do so much but receive so little.
Kolczak said, "They take anything and everything that comes to them, and a lot of times they have really significant medical needs. So their costs, their out of pocket costs are significant just for veterinary care, to get these animals back to a point where they're healthy and adoptable. So they don't really have a lot of funds to things like buy toys or replace blankets. We wanted to be able to offer some sort of relief."
There are four locations where you can drop off donations: April's Plush Puppies and Grooming; Animal Medical Clinic (Dr. Gilligan); Fetch Boutique; and Best Friends Animal Hospital. All items are due to their original locations on Saturday, December 14th by noon. You can also deliver them directly to Fetch on Saturday from 1 to 3 pm.
The ECPC event page states:
- Donations must be back to the location you picked up the tag from no later than this business’s closing time on December 13, 2019. OR, you may bring them to Fetch Pet Boutique on December 14th between 1pm and 3pm where the Electric City Pittie Committee board members and volunteers will be loading up donations to take north to our friends in Dodson, MT. In light of RezQ’s newest venture, (a land purchase to accommodate their rescue needs) monetary donations are especially appreciated and checks can be made out to RezQ Dogs directly. Daily use items like; laundry detergent, blankets, towels, sheets, dog treats (higher nutritional content appreciated), Puppy milk replacer, Toys (Kong wobblers are favorites amongst the RezQ residents), puppy pads (XXL size), Contractor Bags, antler chews and more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts– The ECPC
