Summary

We would like to ask your donation for our activities funds in summer for therapy dogs. In summer it is so hard to get funds, because one of our main income is from fundraising activity on the street, but in summer, mainly June to September, the activity is difficult for temperature. But we must get funds for dogs. Then we'd like to ask you donation to our association for summer season. All donation is used only for dogs to spend and get over summer healthy.

Challenge

Summer is the worst season for dogs in Japan. Not only hot, but also very humid. The hottest time (Usually in August), the temperature become more than 40. Almost every day, it becomes 35. The condition is too bad for dogs. If we stop using air conditioner, dogs will die easily. And also summer is the most difficult season for us to get activities funds. In other seasons we do fundraising and enlightenment activity on the street, but in summer it is difficult for the temperature.

Solution

No matter what season it is, we need funds for dogs for food fee, medical care, and every care fee like trimming, training. In summer dogs need much good nutrition for their health, and also sometimes we want to give them some treats. Our association is 12 years old, and every year the activities fund in summer was the big problem. We hope we do our best for dogs' happiness and comfortable even in summer season.

Long-Term Impact

In every summer, our income decreases drastically, so usually we get activities fund in other seasons, then distribute it for summer. If we have enough activities funds also in summer, we do not need to do that. It means we can do the distributed funds for other purposes, like visit to more facilities, sometimes as volunteer to school, and much better care for dogs. We believe if we have enough funds in summer, much people would get opportunity of our therapy, and also dogs become happier.
