Cocktails & Furrytails was created by friends coming together in our LGBT community to raise money and awareness to benefit the San Diego Animal Support Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which helps HOMELESS and ABUSED animals in and around the San Diego area.

Please donate and help us reach our goal of $10,000 in 2014! Your gift is tax deductible and 100% goes directly to the San Diego Animal Support Foundation.

Founded by Ed Ruegg, Cocktails & Furrytails mission is to bring our LGBT friends together and raise as much money as we can to help as many animals in need as possible. In our efforts to achieve that goal, we keep our FUNdraising events simple, and fun so that our overhead is almost non-existent. We donate all of our time and efforts simply out of our overwhelming love and compassion for animals of all kinds.

In August 2014, we had our major FUNdraising Event with over 1,000 guests invited from our LGBT friends. We sold over 175 tickets and received generous donations from supporters like you. Our event was a HUGE success and guests had a great fun time. We raised close to $8,000 already to help animals in need of a loving home!

About the San Diego Animal Support Foundation
The San Diego Animal Support Foundation is a private, volunteer dependent, nonprofit (501c3) organization dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in overburdened, underfunded local shelters and rescues. Our mission is to promote the adoption of animals and encourage responsible pet care, by working with the public and a network of respected local animal welfare agencies. Our mission is accomplished via daily TV Adopt-A-Pet Segments, hosting huge multi-organizational adoption events, providing spay/neuter funding to pet owners, maintaining a closely-knit network of approximately 40 local rescue agencies and animal shelters, and working on any projects that ultimately benefit the homeless animals of San Diego. The San Diego Animal Support Foundation receives no government funding or grants, and relies entirely on tax-deductible contributions from private donors to continue our life-saving mission.
