Support LAA on Give to Lincoln Day!

Lincoln Animal Ambassadors is once again hoping that all of our wonderful supporters remember us at the annual city-wide event; Give to Lincoln Day. This fundraiser is a super quick and easy way to make a difference in the local community by support grassroots organizations like LAA. Your donation makes the pet food bank and low-cost spay/neuter program possible and has an immediate and direct impact on the number of homeless animals in our area and beyond!

Don’t fear missing the event! This year, you can make your tax deductible donation online at givetolincoln.com from 12am to 11:59pm on May 1st through Thursday, May 31st!. All donations during this time will count towards the matching fund! You can also make a donation an in-person during regular business hours at the Lincoln Community Foundation, 215 Centennial Mall South on May 31st! All funds raised for LAA on Give to Lincoln Day are eligible for a proportional share of a $400,000 match pool from the Lincoln Community Foundation.

With all the press around Give to Lincoln day, we know that it will be hard to miss the event; but if you are worried - just follow LAA on Facebook! We’ll keep you in the know on Give to Lincoln Day and all our upcoming fundraisers.

This May, we hope you will join us in addressing the root causes of animal homelessness in our area. Whether it’s to provide food and supplies for companion animals in need, or to combat overpopulation through spaying and neutering, even the smallest donation makes an enormous difference in the life of animal.

Fix Me Meow returns in May!

In 2016, our Fix Me Meow project was enormously successful, spaying or neutering 110 cats in just 2 months! Thanks to a generous grant provided by the Bissell Foundation, we are once again able offer spay/neuter procedures for Owned or Community (not feral) cats for just $25 starting May 1 until we have issued vouchers for 100 cats. This is the perfect opportunity to reduce the spring influx of homeless kittens!

LAA Receives Lincoln Community Foundation Grant

Lincoln Animal Ambassadors wants to send an enormous Thank You to the Lincoln Community Foundation. It awarded a $2,000 Quick Response grant to Lincoln Animal Ambassadors’ Pet Food Bank this past winter. The grant is for the purchase of prescription and specialty (age specific, limited ingredient, etc) diets for qualifying pet parents.

Prescription and other medically necessary diets make up a significant portion of the costs associated with the Pet Food Bank. These types of food are generally more expensive and are rarely donated. This grant will make it significantly easier to provide the speciality foods that some pets need to stay healthy and happy! We want to thank the foundation and its donors for providing these funds and making a huge impact on the community.

LAA has had overwhelming support this year from our supporters. With great attendance and support through our fundraisers, and wonderful corporate and community support throughout the year, LAA has been able to make great strides in addressing the root causes of animal homelessness.
