ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
------ x ------
NATIONAL GREAT PYRENEES RESCUE
National Great Pyrenees Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501(C)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate the placement of unwanted, displaced and abandoned Great Pyrenees dogs into safe, caring companion homes and to help all dogs of Great Pyrenees origin find good homes across the country. We provide boarding, fostering, veterinary care, and breed education. Let’s all work together to SAVE MORE PYRS
Every dollar raised helps us save Great Pyrenees from high kill shelters, provide veterinary care to those that are sick or injured, and help them find loving adoptive homes. We often take dogs that need orthopedic surgeries due to injuries or birth defects, and this year we have taken in a number of these neediest cases. Last year, we rescued and placed almost 900 dogs and so far this year, we have had over 200 adoptions. But there are hundreds of other dogs waiting in shelters that need rescue and medical care. The funds you raise will help us move more dogs from high kill shelters, provide the care that is needed to those that are sick or injured, and give these dogs a chance for a loving family. We need YOUR help to SAVE MORE PYRS!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------ x ------
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
How will I track my distance?
You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
Who can I contact if I need help?
You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
