Hearts United for Animals in Auburn, Nebraska has partnered with Give by Cell to implement its Mobile Give fundraising to save the lives and improve the welfare of rescued animals across in the state of Nebraska and beyond. Hearts United for Animals is a no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering.
On a Wednesday morning, just after midnight, HUA received a call from an emergency animal hospital in the Omaha area. A 12-week old puppy had arrived with pneumonia and the owners did not wish to pay for treatment. After surrendering the puppy to HUA, the organization posted a message on their Facebook and Twitter asking for donations for the puppy’s vet bills. Within 24 hours of posting, the organization raised $1,500 through their Give by Cell Mobile Give campaign.
“It is wonderful to have Give by Cell’s Mobile Give feature available for our social media fans who wish to donate without filling out a long form or going to grab their credit card,” said Lori Hook, a Representative from Hearts United for Animals. “They appreciate being able to do it on the go and we appreciate having the ability to give our supporters a quick and easy way to send funding for a newly arrived dog or cat in need.”
The organization uses the keyword as a general method of collecting donations to support their animal sanctuary in Nebraska but also utilizes it for emergency care for animals, posting their keyword and shortcode along with a short message from the animal in need on Twitter, Facebook, and their official website.
Supporters can donate $10, with the charge applied to their mobile phone bill, by texting “GIFT” to 20222*. For more information about Mobile Give, please click here.
