Hour of Love 2020

Hour of Love is back, and it has huge, life-saving potential written all over it! On May 1 & 2, HEA's tail-wagging, thunderous-purring, love-filled fundraiser returns. We’re looking for individuals, groups, and families of all sizes to participate (virtually). We're asking for just an hour of your time, but because the event is virtual, you can give as much or as little time as you'd like! Your heart is sure to go pitter-patter when you offer to help during this high-impact event!

We had originally planned to have participants sign up for hour-long, in-person shifts to give endless love to the dogs and cats in our care. Things are coming together differently than we had planned, but we're confident you're going to love the new approach - Hour of Love is going virtual!

The ways you can participate just became limitless. We'll be offering several fun options for participants to engage. Plus, we're beyond excited to see what creative ways our supporters dream up to show off their love for dogs and cats in need!

We'll provide a participant toolkit and a very easy-to-use online fundraising platform, and you'll be all set to do what you do best:A very simple ask for support from the pet lovers in your life will make all the difference in the world to hundreds of companion animals. The ask will be made easy thanks to a very generous gift. Dick & Sharon Resch will be matching the first $30,000 raised, dollar-for-dollar.

You'll receive a toolkit built to maximize your fundraising success. Your toolkit will include:You can choose to participate virtually (using social media and/or other video platforms), or you can do your work offline. As May approaches, we will let you know about additional ways to participate. Finally, and most importantly, you'll have access to (virtual) love from your four-legged friends, and you'll have all the positive feels that come with changing lives.

In the world of companion animal welfare, the value of an hour is significant. The time you share could literally be the difference between life and death for animals awaiting HEA’s help. SHARE AN HOUR. SAVE A LIFE.

You're not on social media? You're not super tech savvy? That's okay - we understand! We believe you can still help!

Since our founding in 2006, we have seen great progress in the companion animal welfare world. Needless killing in shelters continues to decline. Organizations across the country are moving toward a no-kill measure. The agreed upon no-kill measure has been defined as a 90% live release rate. Our view is that 90% isn't enough. We are determined to see the day when the remaining 10% receive continued care and love too.

Innovative solutions are produced when killing is removed from the equation.
