The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

The Dog Liberator is participating in spreading the word about Giving Tuesday. As a Partner with Giving Tuesday, we want to share with you how important this campaign is to us.

On any given day, we receive an email notification that someone has donated $5.00 or $10.00 to our Veterinary Care Fund. These small donations are huge to us, and we can only wonder if the donator is on a fixed income, or may even be a younger child.  Some of these donations come from far away places, which tell us that something we did must have touched their hearts, and that’s what giving  is all about.  You may not remember the story of Sophie’s Choice, where Sophie Litzenberg, (who adopted Murphy from us in May of 2010) decided to do her part to raise money for our cause.  We received a letter from her which read:

Sophie and MurphyDear Dog Liberator,

We adopted Murphy in June, 2010 through your organization. That was the best thing that has ever happened to me. He’s the best puppy ever and we love him so much. He is so friendly to people and other dogs. He is so funny because he wants to be human. He knows a ton of tricks and he is well behaved (when he has to be).

I raised $300 dollars for my birthday and I sold ice-cream and cookies at my local park, where everyone knows and loves Murphy.

I hope you are able to continue to save dogs because we need people like you in the world. I will try to raise more money and give awareness to my friends, my school, and my neighborhood so they can help your organization.

We recently asked for and received donations for Claire’s care.  Claire had quickly depleted our Veterinary Care Fund. Within two weeks, every $5, $10, and $25 donation were added to one donation of $500, and we successfully raised $1,000.  While we focus on Claire’s  health, your donations assures all of us that the next group of dogs we rescue have the necessary funds to be vetted and cared for.

We are committed to supporting and Partnering with #GivingTuesday, because we know first hand how important donations are – without them, we would cease to exist, and would no longer be able to do what it is we were meant to do – rescue highly adopted dogs from kill shelters, dogs that are homeless strays, and from owners who can’t keep them any longer.

What is #GivingTuesday?

On Tuesday December 3, 2013, global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together to create #GivingTuesday.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. Where did the idea come from? The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that symbolically kicks off with “Black Friday” – a day that has since inspired “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” #GivingTuesday™, then, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts.
