Happy New Year!

2018 was an amazing year!  Because of your generosity and support, we have been able to help our rescue partners save over a hundred cats and dogs from being euthanized by high kill shelters. Since May, The Gio Fund has donated thousands of dollars, thousands of pounds of food and much needed bedding and supplies.

We are truly blessed to have such great supporters. Thank you for donating items, shopping our store, volunteering, or just spreading the word about our cause.

As we start 2019, we welcome in an exciting new year filled with plans to do much more! We look forward to keeping you informed about the dogs and cats that are saved because of your support! Also, be on the lookout for news about upcoming events, ways to volunteer and some "soon to be released" exciting news about our Leland, NC Thrift Shop!

Happy and Healthy New Year!
