We were so happy to be able to meet our initial fundraising goal for Pets of the Homeless. The $1800 you helped us raise will help provide emergency veterinary care to pets of homeless individuals who would otherwise not be helped. We don’t want to stop there, so we’re raising the goal to $3000! New money raised will provide emergency care and help spay and neuter pets owned by homeless individuals, helping to keep unwanted puppies and kittens out of animal shelters or worse, from being abandoned.
Help us support Pets of the Homeless this summer, and you can win an autographed photo of Eric Christian Olsen and Ernie Reyes, Jr. from the NCIS: Los Angeles episode “Expiration Date.” A huge thank you goes out to Ernie Reyes, Jr. and Eric Christian Olsen for supplying the autographs in support of our fundraising efforts. Everyone who gives before the end of August will be entered into a drawing to win the photo.
You can learn more on our Pets of the Homeless page. Follow the instructions below to donate. As part of the donation process, you can write a note to Eric that we’ll send to him once we meet our fundraising goal, and we’ll use that note (it will be e-mailed to us) to enter you into the drawing.
Thank you for helping us support this great charity, which provides food and veterinary services to the pets of homeless people all across the United States and Canada, making their world a little brighter by taking care of the furry friends who provide them with companionship and security. (Donations can be made from anywhere in the world.)

The Fine Print:
The winner will be randomly drawn from everyone who has donated since the start of the wikiDeeks Pets of the Homeless campaign (March 15, 2015). If you gave but didn’t follow our instructions (and therefore didn’t make a card sent to wikiDeeks), you can still enter- just e-mail proof of your donation to wikiDeeks@hotmail.com.
wikiDeeks reserves the right to publish copies of your notes to Eric. We want to spread the word as widely as possible about this great charity.
