**If you are donating to a specific animal’s care at our shelter, please note the following**

Those donations will be used for that specific purpose. Any remaining donations above and beyond that animals needs will then be used to care for other animals in our facility.

Are you thinking about donating to help our pets? Please consider helping us by getting the bugs off of our animals. As the summer months approach it is certain that we will see an increase in both fleas and ticks. Our staff and volunteers see countless animals with flea related allergies and various degrees of flea infestation. We want to ensure that each pet has an effective treatment so the bugs are no more!   

Why are we moving to Vectra? Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association has relied on generous donations of various flea products from off brand products to Sentry, Frontline, Advantage, and Revolution. We feel using one type of flea product will be safer for our shelter residents and allow staff to effectively treat flea infestations. We also feel that our staff should be knowledgeable on the products we use, CEVA has offered us the opportunity to learn about their products including Vectra for Cats and Vectra 3D for dogs.

What is Vectra? Vectra is authorized for purchase through your veterinarian only! Please be sure to speak with your vet before starting your pet on any flea or tick preventatives.Vectra is an easy to apply flea treatment that lasts 30 days. It can be applied to cats and dogs as young as 8 weeks of age (Vectra 3D cannot be applied to cats). It is fast acting – killing fleas in as little as 6 hours. 

How can you help? Make a monetary donation restricted to flea and tick product purchases. Be sure to mark your donation with this restriction so we can apply it correctly. As with any medical need the cost for this supply is considerable. Any donation, large or small, is a huge help in making these purchases possible!

It feels good to give to charitable causes, but it’s certainly nice that the federal government rewards citizens who are generous with their donations. Donating to Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association allows you to choose where your money/donations goes and helps to improve the lives of some many animals and society as a whole. While most people simply pay taxes and let the government choose where the money should be spent, people who donate significantly to charities take a more active role in deciding where money should be invested in their communities.  For your efforts, you may be able to enjoy the added benefit of paying less on taxes.

If you are considering taking advantage of the charitable donations tax deduction, be sure to talk to a certified tax preparer in order to discuss your specific circumstances and what sort of tax preparation would work best for your situation.
