Grand County Pet Pals (GCPP) has a long and successful history of providing support to animals in our community whether at the Grand County Animal Shelter or the pets of citizens in need. Our primary focus is providing financial assistance for spay and neuter surgeries for pets in Grand County. Whether one is an animal lover or not, we all are impacted by pet over-population. According to the American Veterinary Medicine Association, the capture, impound and eventual destruction of homeless animals costs taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies over a billion dollars each year. Unwanted litters cost people money and time but the animal pays the ultimate price: with their life, simply because they are homeless. We aim to prevent that.
Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.
You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
