In addition to earning the $500 referral amount for each group which puts Healing HEART Sanctuary of Lompoc, CA as the referring agency … This opportunity and project is a dream come true for both Executive Director Laura Bradshaw and long-term Board member Laurel Ley. They met each other in Louisiana in January 2006 during the continued response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. it was then that they both realized they shared a passion in assisting smaller groups in identifying resources which would support them in helping animals more; thus possibly reducing burnout and creating synergies and collaborations which would ultimately benefit rescue animals as well as their adopters.
PLEASE spread the love and the word!!!! We all could use this money and we would love for all groups to at least get the $1,000.
“We’re thrilled to be working in concert with Maddie’s Fund’s to help get the word out about their ‘Lap Up the Cash Program’. Not only are other small animal welfare nonprofits earning valuable grant funds to help animals in their care but we’re also helping source important data necessary to saving lives. The animals of Healing HEART Sanctuary also benefit every time a group or agency names us as their referring organization. It’s a win-win for the animals all around!”
