Wondering how you can help our little old dogs? Here are some ways to do just that…
You can purchase something the Sanctuary needs from our Amazon Wish List.
You can use Amazon Smile when making your own purchases from Amazon. We get a cut of what you spend. Easy. We are basically getting a kick-back from your Amazon Prime addiction. Just type in “Little Old Dog Sanctuary” and it’ll find us.
Make a monthly donation. Monthly donations are a HUGE help to us. Getting monthly donations provides us with predictable cash flow for things like food, medications, and other monthly expenses. This way we don’t have to dip into our “emergency fund” every time we need to purchase something. This is expensive work we do. Monthly donations can be ANY amount. No amount is too small or too large (obviously). And it’s easy. Just go to our donate page, pick your amount and click the button that says, “I would like this donation to automatically repeat each month” and it’s done.
Get a tattoo. That’s right. One of our biggest supporters is the All Sacred Tattoo Foundation. If you get a tattoo at one of their quarterly events, we get a portion of all proceeds made. And these are the best tattoo artists in Colorado, along with guest artists from other states. This is an opportunity to bypass their epic waiting lists to get the ink of your dreams AND help little old dogs at the same time! Couldn’t get any better than that, could it?
Make a one time donation. I know, it’s a bit crass to always be begging for money, but getting old is expensive. Your donation helps us save little old dogs from being euthanized at the shelter. Instead they get to come live at our house, where we will become their own personal slaves for the duration of their lives. They will be spoiled and worshipped. They will live happily ever after. We couldn’t do this without your financial support. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organizations, all donations are tax-deductible. You can either donate through our website donation page, or you can mail a check to LODS, P.O. Box 1409, Conifer, CO 80433.
Volunteer. We don’t use volunteers on a regular basis for daily care…just because this is our home and it would be a bit awkward having volunteers milling about all day. But we do need volunteers for things like events, special projects (this summer we are hoping to build a backyard oasis for the little ones) and administrative tasks. Just send us a message through our contact form if you are interested.
Buy our books. They are available on Amazon. Check out our books page to see what we have to offer.
Make a tribute gift. You can donate any amount in honor or memory of someone and we will send them a card (an actual paper card that we put a stamp on and goes in the actual mail) letting them know of the donation. You can do this on our donate page.
Organize your own canned food/milk-bone drive. Canned food is one of our largest expenses. We use Pedigree for the most part (except for dogs that have special diets). We easily use about ten cans a day. Yep. A DAY. So we are always in need of canned food. Milk-bones are treat of choice over here. And yes, we know they are junk food…c’mon, these dogs are living on borrowed time, they want what they want, and we provide it. So yeah, Pedigree and Milk-bones. And if you’d just like to donate food on your own, Sam’s Club runs great special on cases of Pedigree. We can arrange to have Erik pick up the donations or arrange a time for you to drop them off to us. Send us a message through our contact form if you are interested in doing this.
And last, but not least. THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO is adopt an old dog from a shelter. Or better yet, start your own senior dog sanctuary and rescue dozens. I can help you with that, just send me a message.
