The $1 Challenge!

We are in desperate need, with our rescue funds at zero and our personal funds are used up. We still have medical bills coming in and dogs that need our help. We can’t do this without you, our supporters.

We have nearly 2,000 friends on our Facebook and Twitter pages. If everyone donated one dollar to us, it would make a huge difference in what we are able to do to help animals.

Will you accept the $1 challenge? 4 quarters, 10 dimes, 100 pennies. That’s all it takes for you to help us help animals!

There are 3 ways you can donate this dollar (or more if you’d like ) to us:

  1. Online via PayPal (no fees will be charged if you put it as a personal transfer instead of a donation) by sending it to: pitcrewilrescue@gmail.com. Go to Paypal.com to get started or donate through our Facebook page to pay by debit/credit card.
  2. Send a check to (we don’t mind depositing a $1 check!):
    Pit Crew IL Rescue
    P.O. Box 60874
    Chicago, IL 60660
  3. Purchase a Pit Crew IL Rescue product from our store! ALL profits of each purchase go to the dogs! SHOP.

Thank you for your support! Every penny that we raise goes straight to help animals in need (i.e. vetting & food)!
