Donate to benefit local animal shelters and rescues in San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties

SAN DIEGO, Calif., (January 6, 2021) - San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, has collected over $7,380 so far to help the local animal shelters and rescues in San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties through its “Presents for Paws” fundraising campaign. This is SDCCU’s tenth consecutive holiday season supporting the “Presents for Paws” campaign. The fundraiser kicked off December 1, but due to the ongoing financial strain the COVID-19 pandemic has put on our local shelters and rescues, they need our help even more. This is why the campaign has been extended through January 31 in an effort to meet the goal of raising $10,000.
“We appreciate the kindness of those in our community who have already donated to the Presents for Paws fundraiser. Thanks to the community we are more than halfway to our goal, and we are eager to extend the fundraiser to collect these necessary funds for these rescues that do so much for animals in need,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “We ask and encourage our local communities to help support the efforts of these amazing animal shelters and rescues in Southern California.”
In San Diego County, collections will benefit San Diego Humane Society; in Riverside County, collections will benefit Animal Friends of the Valleys; and in Orange County, collections will benefit the Home Free Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. Monetary donations will be accepted in-branch and online at Last holiday season, SDCCU’s “Presents for Paws” combined donation efforts collected a total of $10,000 for shelter animals in need.
