CGPR’s new building fund

Help our Pyrs have a Pyrfect New Year. 

Make a donation to CGPRs new building fund.  

Do you believe in miracles?  We do!

One of this year’s miracles is a new home for some of the foster pyrs.  It can keep up to 9 pyrs safe and cozy warm (or cool) until their furever homes can be found.  This will substantially increase our ability to rescue pyrs in North and South Carolina who might otherwise lose their lives!

As a result of an incredibly generous donation, construction on the new building has already begun.  The building is located on a farm outside of Winston-Salem.  It is projected to be ready for the pyrs to move in by the spring of 2015.  We plan to hold adopt-a-thons there every other Saturday to make it easier for future pyrents to meet and bond with their furever friend.  Check out our architects drawings.

      

We still need some more miracles to make this project a success, and that’s where you come in.  Please make a tax deductible donation to our building fund.   Funds raised will help house and care for our pyrs.  Any amount, big or small.  If every one of our pyr lovers gives a little, we can make this dream a reality.  Our pyrs are counting on us.

We would like to offer some special miracle-maker recognition with this project:

Building Sponsors.  For every $1,500 you donate, you will be recognized on a plaque at the entrance to the building for a month.  In addition, you will also be invited to attend the exclusive pre-grand opening celebration.

Pyr Lounge Sponsors.  For every $200 you donate, you will be recognized on a plaque at the entrance to the adoption lounge for a month.

Pyr Condo Sponsors.  Each of the spacious nine condos in our new building are much too nice to be called kennels.  For every $100 you donate, you will be recognized on a plaque on one of the nine pyr condos for a month, and we will send you special stories about the dogs that were saved in that condo.

Want to do multiple months or combine sponsor levels?  No problem.  We can create a sponsor package that fits your budget.

All of our building miracle makers will be recognized on a miracle-maker wall inside the building, on our website and at the grand opening celebration.

Remember your donation is tax deductible, so if you need a tax deduction at the end of the year, please give.  Don’t forget to check with your employer to see if they have a matching program for charitable donations.

To make your donation, click on the donate tab above.  Please specify what fund your donation is for when you pay through paypal.

Funding a foster facility to care for Pyrs helps them, their new Pyr families, and our community.  Thank you!
