Cell Dogs joins #GivingTuesday 2020

We’re thrilled to join thousands of organizations across the globe participating in the largest Giving Day of the year.

Mark your calendar and please support Cell Dogs on Giving Tuesday: December 1, 2020.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.

Here at Cell Dogs, our training programs have been on hiatus due to Covid-19. While we completely understand why this remains necessary for everyone’s health, it’s been disappointing to not hold classes – our program participants have been experiencing increased isolation due to “no visitors” and “no volunteer programming” rules.

In the meantime, we have continued to rescue, foster, train, and re-home shelter pups. And, just recently, one of our dogs, Duff concluded his yearlong service dog training and was successfully partnered with Sean, an Army veteran.

The simple act of giving is healing and, in these times of social-distancing, restores our ability to connect and do good. Every act of generosity counts as we hope to restart our programs in the correctional facilities in the next few months and continue our mission to provide second chances to people and pups.

We plan to raise $5000 in just 1 day.

Please mark your calendar and support Cell Dogs on December 1st. If you are ready now, our donation page is live!

Thank you for all your support,

Janette Thomas and the Cell Dogs Team

GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts.

GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.
