A Message From Colette Slone
The cost of veterinary care is often beyond the means of low-income citizens, which can lead to animal suffering and difficult decisions regarding the surrender of an animal or euthanasia of a dearly-loved family pet. Animalert is once again raising funds to help prevent these tragic situations by subsidizing the charges for tests required to diagnose and treat illnesses in pets cared for by low-income individuals and vulnerable individuals. Even small donations can make all the difference; last year we managed to raise over $4000 together, and to date this has helped numerous families obtain blood tests, x-rays, urinalysis and FIV tests for their animals. Together, this holiday season, we can do even more.
You can help us by:
1) DONATING. Any amount helps us; for example, a donation of $25-$50 will pay for a urinalysis; $75 will pay for a single x-ray; $100 will pay for an x-ray series or a histopathological exam; $125 will pay for a comprehensive blood analysis.
2) FUNDRAISING. You can choose to fundraise for us yourselves by setting your own goal and involving your own network. Click on the 'Participate' button to do this.
3) SPREAD THE WORD. Tell everyone you know about our campaign to help us reach our goal!

SOS Children is a charity which puts a child together with a mother. Remember a charity like SOS when you are thinking of giving to a good cause.
There are many advantages of being a charity. Charities normally don't have to pay income or corporation tax, capital gains tax or stamp duty. In addition, donations to charities are exempt from inheritance tax and may be eligible for Gift Aid. Charities often don't have to pay more than 20% of business rates on the buildings they occupy and may qualify for special VAT treatment. HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is responsible for matters relating to charities and tax.
