Give To the Max Day 2016

Give to the Max Day a Big Success

Over $8,000 donated for shelter pets

The annual day of giving in Minnesota, Give to the Max Day was held on November 17, 2016.  At Great River Rescue we were calling it Give “in-memory” Day.  Thankfully, we had a $3,000 matching donation which was mad in-memory of the donors beloved cat Tigger.  Other supporters were encouraged to donate in-memory or in-honor of their cherished pets, with up to $3,000 being matched.  Over the course of the day, a total of $8,395 was raised for Great River Rescue and its mission to save, care for, and find homes for companion animals.  This was a great day of giving, nearly doubling the next highest total raised on Give to the Max Day in the past.  Everyone at Great River Rescue is incredibly grateful for the support of the community on Give to the Max Day and throughout the year.

Many supporters made donations in-memory or in-honor of their pets.  Below is a list of those contributors and their memorials and honorariums.
