Two donations totaling $175 were made last week to EARS, an animal service located in Westport that is seeking to raise money for a response vehicle to be used specifically for local animal rescue needs.
The GoFundMe campaign has currently raised $838 towards its $3,000 goal, with the last donation coming five days ago.
Here’s part of what the recently launched GoFundMe page says about the fundraiser:
“The benefits of having a vehicle dedicated to assisting those with animals in need during emergencies has been made clear in past events, and combined with the training and commitment of our team, we know that this truck would greatly expand the EARS capabilities. To this end, we are asking everyone who can, to please consider contributing to our fundraiser so that we may reach our goal of purchasing this truck. All of us involved with the EARS organization, and all of the animals this truck will enable us to assist, will be forever grateful to you. No contribution is too small – as it has been said, it takes many hearts & hands of all sizes to make great things happen.”
