The biggest hurdle in the 1000 collars for challenge, is getting the funds to ship out the collars/leashes and get the hardware to make more. If you'd like to donate to the cause, you can donate at the ladybughug paypal addy, and put as message that you would like the funds to go towards the 1000 collars for rescues I've also had the hardest time getting LOCAL shelters/rescues to want or accept the collars/leashes. I've tried time and again to get in touch with local folks, to no avail. THAT is why these are now being shipped out. Its saddening, and heart breaking, but I cannot force peeps to go along with something if they don't get back in touch with me. Anyways... the email addy is [email protected] . This is an on-going campaing, until all collars have found a home!
