During our initial phase of the Thulani Program, we were extremely fortunate in receiving generous donations from a number of caring contributors, including substantial support from the Grey Muzzle Organization.

These allowed us to satisfy all necessary food, medical, and physical requirements of the modest number of dogs that had been brought into the Thulani Program.  But in 2012 we launched an aggressive, focused effort to greatly expand the region from which we bring dogs into the Thulani Program.

In the past we have concentrated on the shelters in the greater San Francisco Bay region, but as of the end of 2012 we accepted qualifying dogs from all of California and Nevada as resources would permit.  We projected that the annual number of dogs wold likely triple once the expansion was in place, and we have now stabilized at a level of bringing in 40-50 new dogs each year.

As a result, we need a lot more money than we have needed in the past in order to maintain our operations and satisfy the huge need for our services.

    You should put your PayPal donation information front and center on your Facebook page, so folks can easily and quickly donate to the program. I have had to take time to SEARCH for the right info to plug into the PayPal send money feature, in order to donate to you. Make it more simple!
