Give BIG, Get BAD

Give BIG 2023
May 2nd & 3rd
Give BIG ($50+) and get a custom "bad" pet drawing! You can make a difference to our animals!
Motley Zoo's year has started off with a heavy demand for our services - to the most critical and needy animals out there.
Unfortunately though, donations have been light and we're already well over our capacity for care. The animals need YOU to shower them with support TODAY! You can even GIVE BIG early right now!
Join us in turning things around for the animals, those in the most desperate need -
animals that have no one else to save them!
For the past three years, our very-own volunteers (of varying artistic abilities) have had an absolute blast drawing pet portraits as the donations rolled in, and this year we’ve got a bunch of new “artists” on board, who are ready to jump in and create personal masterpieces of your beloved pets! Or maybe you could surprise a friend with one!
Our fundraising GOAL is $50,000 so that we can continue to fulfill our mission of saving as many lives as possible....but we can only do this with YOUR help and incredible generosity like the last three years. The animals need you now, more than they ever have before.
Rescue never stops. We won't either.
Even though we no longer have our Redmond studio / doggy daycare to raise critically-needed funds for our rescue animals, we are still persevering
the best we can - and we need your help more than ever!
Who will benefit most from your donation?
Without adequate funding in our piggy bank, we would have been forced to say "no" to taking in Teefer Sutherland, this ridiculously handsome little ginger kitty, who suffers from a deformity of his jaw, causing his teeth to be misaligned. He was purr-fectly imperfect in our minds, and even bonded with his very own emotional support kitten / best friend, Sue Snell., while in our foster care. Your generosity helps us continue to say "Yes" to animals just like Teefer. WIthout Motley Zoo, he would not have had this second chance and a forever home!
Simply put: the animals.
Since Covid hit in 2020, our donations have plunged, and now that we lost our Redmond studio facility, which housed our Rock Star Treatment Services (dog daycare and training), we have to find a way to make it without the money that came in from the daycare. We won't lie - this year has been one of the hardest in our history, and it's not even May yet!
As a result, we are unable to cover the veterinary care for all the animals we are asked to save on a regular basis.
Motley Zoo is known for providing care fo special cases like Teefer Sutherland, who would have been euthanized for malocclusion: a deformed jaw.
Shelters don't have the capacity to take on specialized care that falls "outside the norm" - but that's exactly what we are here to do.
However, we need the funding to support this kind of exceptional care...Funding we currently lack.
Can you even imagine how heartless of a human would look at this precious face and decide that she wasn't worth it - that she needed to be euthanized simply for being blind? We are so grateful Helena's vet contacted us so we could give her the life she deserves.
Give to save the lives of animals like adoptable roadie, Helena.
Blind baby Boston Terrier Helena came to us in January from our friends at a local vet care facility. She came from a backyard breeder situation where it was decided that Helena should be EUTHANIZED simply for being blind!!! The NERVE! Thankfully, the vet refused, and reached out to us for help. We were more than happy to scoop this tiny cutie up, and welcome her with open arms.
Unfortunately, baby girl had to undergo enucleation surgery (removing an eye) because it became horribly infected and enlarged - at the tender young age of 3 months! It is risky for a pup so young to have surgery, but she really needed it, and thankfully all turned out a-ok, and she's in her foster home thriving, melting hearts everywhere, while she awaits her forever home!
We couldn't save precious animals like Helena without funds from our generous rock star donors. There is a seemingly never-ending slew of special care cases like Helena's who need help, but without enough funds (and fosters), there is a limit to how many we can save (which is so devastating for us!) We need your help!
