Beyond Rescue 2022 | Back to School

September 16 @ 10:00 am - September 17 @ 3:00 pm

Help us go above and beyond rescue by becoming a sponsor during our unique 30-hour hybrid online and in-person fundraising event, which includes a Field Day! Our 54,000 sq. ft. Pet Resource Center once stood as a vacant elementary school so join us as we go back to our building’s roots for a day of fun! This event is a hybrid online and in-person event to create an inclusive fundraiser that brings in our talented ambassadors, volunteers, supporters and community. One component is a crowdfunding virtual fundraiser that utilizes matching gifts to increase the impact of everyone’s gift. Matching sponsors are vital to the success of the event and all match money goes directly to GPG’s mission. We will conclude with the “Field Day Frolick,” which is an in-person event from 11am-3pm on Saturday, Sept. 17 to celebrate our building’s past, our pets and the hard work of our supporters. This is our largest fundraiser of the year, bringing in $136,000 during our inaugural campaign last year. Powered by our generous match donors who will increase the impact of all gifts, we hope to go even further this year. Interested in becoming a sponsor?
