How to Place a Dog through GSRSV
Since February 2001, I (Brian Foran) have been supporting GSRSV from two main sources: my personal income/savings and donations. I retired in 2003 to devote all of my time to operating GSRSV. For many years, my personal savings were the primary source of funding for GSRSV.
I typically care for about 20 dogs at my rescue facility, so my expenses are always high. Though my expenses exceeded my income for many years, I've always worked hard to minimize expenses--primarily by learning to perform basic veterinary procedures such as removing foxtails and treating superficial wounds. These skills have saved me thousands of dollars in veterinary expenses.
As my savings dwindled
over the years, donations became more and more important to GSRSV's
financial stability. In 2013, I finally obtained non-profit
GSRSV has earned the designation of a "Top-Rated" nonprofit organization for 2018 from Great Nonprofits.org, a clearinghouse for NPOs.
How Can I Help?
To make a tax deductible donation to GSRSV, select one of the following options:
1.Click on the PayPal button below*
* Please note that PayPal deducts a transaction fee of 1.99% + $0.49 for each donation. If you have a PayPal account, you can send payments to GSRSV directly from your account using the "Friends & Family" payment option, which will exempt the fee. Simply send payments to GSRSV's account at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Use Venmo to transfer money directly from your bank account. Venmo uses Brian-Foran-12 as the receiver code and you'll also have to add the last four digits of my cell phone (3801). No transaction fee will be deducted from your donation.
2. Go to GSRSV's Facebook page and click the "Donate" button under the picture at the top of the page. If you make a donation via Facebook, please send me an e-mail to let me know, as I am unable to track my donors on Facebook due to a technical problem that I have been unable to fix. Facebook does not deduct a transaction fee for donations.
3. Use Zelle to transfer money directly from your bank account (if it is a Zelle partner) or by using the Zelle app. Simply use the e-mail address email@example.com to send money to GSRSV's bank account. No transaction fee will be deducted from your donation. If you make a donation via Zelle, please send me an e-mail to let me know as Zelle does not reveal the identity of those who make payments via their platform.

I will either e-mail or postal mail you a receipt for your donation.
