In 2015, our first full year in doing pet sitting service in our home, we started a little tradition where we collected extra earnings from Piri's Place (tips we received from our amazing, awesome, wonderful clients) and donated half of the amount to an organization in the DMV area (DC, Maryland, Virginia) doing work on behalf of animals. Last year, after seeing this heartwarming video, we decided to support House with Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary based in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
I stayed up one night in November researching places to donate to this year. Having Piri battle cancer these past few months before he passed, I naturally looked into efforts that fell along the lines of pet cancer. I came across various funds designed to help families pay for life saving treatments for their pets and found one that serves the DMV area.
Our Piri's Place 2016 charitable giving goes to Fetch a Cure's Companions in Crisis fund based in Richmond, Virginia.
After Christmas, we'll share our full 2016 giving list, as we do every year, to encourage year-end giving (our favorite kind of giving).
Happy Holidays, everyone.
