Maximize your donation to MN Sheltie Rescue on Give to the Max Day - Thursday, November 13th at!

Thank you so much to all those that contributed to MN Sheltie Rescue last year on Give to the Max Day.  It was a huge success for us.  Last year we raised $28,332 in donations from 211 different people.  We won $2,500 in prize money last year and were 4th in our size category, raising our total for Give to the Max Day at $30,832.  That was a tremendous boost to MN Sheltie Rescue and allowed us to provide vet care to many dogs in need.

This year the prize structure will be the same as last year.  We hope to be able to get at least some prize money again this year.

Prize Money is :

First Place:  $10,000
Second Place:  $7,500
Third Place:  $5,000
Fourth Place: $2,500
Fifth Place: $1,000
6th place through 10th place - $500 each

There will again be matching funds to double your donations!!  The donations are made by key MNSR supporters and MNSR board members.  This year so far we have raised over $10,000 that will be available for the matching fund dollars throughout the day.  This year there will be $9,050 for matching funds for MNSR and another $1,000 in matching funds for donations that are made to the Jazz & McKenna fund.  The Jazz & McKenna fund is for dogs requiring extra special veterinary care.  The fund helps cover the expenses that go above normal veterinary expenses.

We need donations at all times throughout the day on Thursday, November 13th in order to have chances at the golden tickets.  Every hour one donation is selected at random to receive a golden ticket.  The organization that the selected donation was designated to go receives an additional $1,000 in prize money.  This means volume of donations really matters, everyone has a fair shot at the golden tickets, regardless of the size of the donation.  There is also one golden ticket at the end of the event that will be randomly selected to receive an additional $10,000 to the donor’s charity.  We hope this is our year to win a golden ticket since we haven’t won one yet.

Your donations fund the care and veterinary needs of the dogs in our program.  Thanks to your generous support, we're able to provide our dogs with the care that they need to be healthy and begin a new life.  Maximize your donation by donating through on Thursday, November 13th!  Thank you in advance for your support - and the Shelties bark their thanks as well! 

Here is the link:

Starting November 1st, you can schedule your donations.  The way scheduled donations work is that they are randomly processed throughout the day on November 13th, the actual Give to the Max day.  Last year if you scheduled a donation, they were all processed at midnight.  This year they will be spread out throughout the day so that will increase the chances of getting a golden ticket.  Don’t donate in before November 13th unless you are scheduling a donation or it doesn’t count toward the prizes. Thanks in advance for your donation on November 13th!

Tail wags to all our supporters!!
