The Palo Alto Humane Society (PAHS) is proud to sponsor the fourth annual and first ever virtual fundraiser, Daisy’s Day 2020, taking place now through October 31, 2020. The goal is to raise$100,000 to help sick and injured animals in the Greater Palo Alto/mid-Peninsula Area.
Donations from Daisy’s Day 2020 will go to help PAHS fulfill its mission of Creating Compassionate Communities by providing emergency veterinary services for pets whose owners might not have the necessary funds for lifesaving intervention. PAHS’ unique program of veterinary help is often the first line of defense for sick and injured pets and strays—keeping them out of shelters for lack of means to pay for their care.
Daisy’s Day is named after a shelter dog Daisy. Fortunately, Daisy was adopted, but she needed medical attention. Daisy’s companion was able to provide for her beloved dog but realized that many pet owners cannot shoulder the financial burden of unexpected veterinary care. Her decision to generously contribute to PAHS’ intervention program is the inspiration for Daisy’s Day and a call to the community to support this lifesaving program.
In 2019, Daisy’s Day raised more than $70,000, which helped 95 stray and rescued animals through the PAHS’ Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) and 71 animals and their families through PAHS’ Pet Help program. Additionally, 88 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered.
