Valley Gives is Coming...
We're gearing up for Valley Gives on 12-12-13! Valley Gives is a 24-hour celebration of generosity with a goal of encouraging thousands of Valley residents to support their favorite charities through online giving. Nonprofits that raise the most funds and have the greatest number of donors are eligible to receive prizes totaling $200,000. Every gift matters!
You can follow the Valley Gives adventures of Doug and Katie on YouTube.

You made the goal...and then some!
Thanks to more than 1,600 of you, we not only met our $50,000 fall fundraising challenge goal...we exceeded it!
We're still digging out from the piles of donations that poured in, but our most recent count shows you helped raise a whopping $118,784 to help the animals! And the anonymous donor who provided the matching funds was so inspired by your generosity that she’s now decided to match the entire amount.
That means your contributions, along with the matching gift, equals over $230,000 for the animals.
A huge "woof," "purr," and "thank you" from all of us, two and four legged alike, at Dakin.
If you haven't had a chance to give yet, it's not too late! Valley Gives Day is coming up on 12/12/13. By making a gift online that day, you can help us try for another first place win and up to an additional $30,000 in prize money.
