Description

Verde Valley Sanctuary clients are in need of laptops. Our clients typically leave abusive/violent homes with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Clients shop at no cost in our thrift stores for items they need. However, we do not normally have donations of laptops in good running condition. If you know of someone who is ready to upgrade their technology, our clients would be so grateful to put your outmoded items to valuable use. Thank you in advance for sharing this giving opportunity with your personal and professional networks.

Verde Valley Sanctuary is renovating our primary shelter for victims of domestic violence. We could really use your help with completing our Shelter Butterfly Garden. Our final step is to add 10 Big Beautiful Pots; 26-inch half barrel size but not wood; filled with outdoor plant soil, mulch material, and hardy NATIVE flowers planted for direct sunlight. Let the sun shine in and invite the butterflies!

PASSENGER VAN

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

Verde Valley Sanctuary needs a used, 12-14 passenger van for local travel. Must be safe for local travel. Must run well and have seatbealts. Ideally must be non-descript because privacy is a key requirement of our shelter. We will re-paint if necessary. Our shelter has been overcapacity this entire year—so we are desperate to take mothers and their children to: special events, the library, recreational places, and park outings. Many of these families have never had an opportunity to do these normal and pleasant things. Questions, please contact Tracey McConnell 928-282-2755.

Funds to Support Pet Friendly Shelter

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

Our capital campaign to build a four-bedroom pet friendly addition to our shelter continues. We frequently have clients who are in desperate need of safe shelter but will not come to the Verde Valley Sanctuary because we cannot accommodate their pets. The current configuration of the 28 bed shelter is often quite crowded and not conducive to adding animals into the mix. We are grateful for the donations that already have come in. It’s a great start but we have a long way to go.

Pet Friendly Shelter Project

See all wishes from Verde Valley Sanctuary

Description

48% of people suffering from domestic abuse need help caring for their pets. It’s not uncommon for person to stay with their abuser if they cannot bring their pet, or pets, into our shelter. Bringing pets into an already crowed group house can be very complicated. Most people really need their pets in the room with them; not boarded out. We want to develop an adjoining property (next to our current shelter) into a pet friendly, four-bedroom shelter. This is a cost-effective chance for us without building from scratch. Purchase cost will be $120,000. Modification costs will be $60,000. Our first year operation cost $45,000. Total $225,000. We have started a dedicated capital fund toward this goal. This is an interesting and creative project. (There are only a few domestic violence shelter that take pets.)
