join team rescue project
Are you a runner, cyclist, or triathlete participating in an event this year? If so, we are asking you to choose Rescue Project as your charity this season. If you already have an event you are training for, as an additional but meaningful challenge, we are looking for committed supporters willing to raise funds on behalf of Rescue Project. Funds are used to offset expenses of independent rescue groups during urgent medical situations, natural disasters, and more.
How it works:
1) Sign up for any race or event
2) Use our PledgeReg.com link to raise money to support Rescue Project and our efforts to save more animals' lives.
3) Share the PledgeReg.com fundraising link with your friends, family, and social networks to start raising money.
There are no minimum fundraising requirements, however, if you raise $150 we will send you a Rescue Project running singlet. If you raise $250 we will send you a Rescue Project cycling jersey. And, if you raise $500 we will send you a Rescue Project cycling kit (jersey and bib) or speedsuit. In order to receive your Rescue Project apparel before your event, we need a 4 week lead time in order to guarantee in-time delivery.
The rescue project pledge
When you take the Rescue Project pledge, you promise to live by these general principles:
I pledge to honor animals' rights to well being. I will be a voice on their behalf and will advocate and intervene to protect animals from potential harm and suffering.
I will provide compassionate care for and protect animals through sickness and health, from their young through their senior days, because I understand that pet ownership is a lifelong commitment to the animal. When faced with challenging circumstances I will take responsibility. I will not, under any circumstance, abandon an animal, at any age.
I will take action in order to increase awareness for animal rescue and adoption. If I cannot adopt, I will foster. If I cannot foster, I will volunteer my time. If I cannot volunteer, I will donate. I will always educate and advocate for the voiceless.
As part of the pledge, you have the option to donate to Rescue Project so that we, as a community, may help to offset costs of animal rescue. For example, Rescue Project uses these funds to help independent rescue groups cover vetting (spay and neuter, vaccinations, microchipping), transportation, natural disaster-related rescue efforts, temporary housing, and unforeseen veterinary expenses necessary to resolve urgent medical conditions uncovered during the rescue process.
Donations also allow us to purchase larger amounts of inventory at a lower cost so we can donate a higher percentage of each sale to your animal rescue organization of choice. Depending on the item, we donate between 50-100% of the proceeds from each purchase to shelters and rescues and use the remainder to fund Rescue Project initiatives including urgent rescue and veterinary needs and special projects (see below). Your support helps us to donate even more. Thank you.
When you donate, you will be able to see your contribution in action as we share rescue stories via our social media outlets, instagram and facebook.
We appreciate donations of any amount via PayPal or credit card. Your donation to Rescue Project Inc. is tax deductible under IRC Section 170. Our Tax ID is 47-4512801.
