Calling All Rescues…
Want a cool and creative fundraiser for your shelter or rescue? We’ve got it! Our Read & Rescue program is customized for each rescue we work with. So, your rescue is the only rescue telling YOUR story.
As a shelter or rescue your heart strings are tugged at on a regular basis. You love and support every animal that comes through your doors. Every animal has a story. Some have really special stories – success stories that you will never forget. We turn your rescue’s most compelling stories into illustrated children’s books and character merchandise that raises money for YOUR rescue.
Why Does Read and Rescue Work?
Take a look at a larger rescue and how its successful in building its donation and support base. For example, World Wildlife Federation (www.worldwildlife.com) – they offer a choice of free gift with donation. This makes it easier for a donor to justify a larger donation amount. Yes, there are people who just donate to donate but, there’s a lot of people who love to get a little something when giving to a great cause. Read and Rescue helps you capture the interest of those people while it also helps teach children to have love and compassion for animals. So, parents love it, too!
How Does Read and Rescue Work?
Making the decision to join our Read and Rescue Program is easy because you can get started at NO COST to the rescue. All you have to do is contact us with the general details about the rescue animal you want to feature using the form below. We’ll reply with a request for images of your rescue. Then. we go to work creating an engaging children’s storybook and character merchandise featuring full color illustrations of your rescue, your rescue’s name and logo, etc… We essentially create branded gift products. Your rescue earns a percentage of every sale of your story and related products.
Can You Get Products to Resell in Person?
Yes. Products are available at a wholesale price for you to put out at adoption events or in your rescue center. This is optional, not every rescue carries products at their location. Many rescues simply help promote their unique collection through social media.
Do You Have to Submit Your Own Story?
No. If you’d rather not submit a true rescue story we can customize a fictional animal tale for your rescue. Just let us know that’s what you’d like to do and we’ll assist you with this option.
