Grassroots Groupon Fundraiser

September 17 - September 23 - We are doing a huge fundraiser for Colorado Puppy Rescue in conjunction with Groupon.

Colorado Puppy Rescue and Groupon Grassroot (, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, is helping to raise money to help cover the cost vaccinations. Vaccinations for puppies is a huge expense for the rescue, each puppy requiring approximately $30 worth of vaccinations to be up to date and ready for adoption.

The Colorado Puppy Rescue campaign will be available on the Denver Groupon Grassroots page beginning on September 17th and running through September 23rd. 

Utilizing Groupon Grassroots' collective action model, Groupon subscribers can pledge support for the Colorado Puppy Rescue campaign initiative in increments of $10.

100% percent of the Groupon Grassroots campaign proceeds will be used to purchase vaccinations for the puppies that we rescue.

When: Sept 17 - 23
How Much: $10 - 100% of the benefits go to Colorado Puppy Rescue, but we must sell 60 before we get anything!
