The actual IRS 501c3 approval is for the parent corporation Central Florida Weimaraner & Dog Rescue Inc. dba Lifeline Dog Rescue. The address for the 501c3 letter is our headquarters location in Davenport, Florida, not our physical 3 acre facility in Okeechobee Florida where dogs are kept for evaluation, rehab as necessary, and adoption.
In addition, we have personal pets and senior rescue dogs who are resident “canine staff” that are either retired or assist socializing new intakes during their rehab and transition to adoption.
After incorporating earlier in 2011, all funding was from our personal resources except one Chipin for Bert and Ernie in December 2011, so otherwise no public donations were received last year. Chipin donors for Bert and Ernie may claim the tax deduction, as well as individuals or corporations within the USA who have donated at any time in 2012 or beyond.
Readers may want to view our intro video of the Lifeline facility (Rated G – NO graphic or distressed doggy footage) to see how well we’re doing to provide comfort and safety for the dogs in our care.
Please consider helping us help more dogs. The IRS 501c3 approved status allows USA corporate or individual donors to deduct their donations. We can really use your support going forward in 2012, and your tax deductible generosity will help fulfill our slogan – Where Dogs Learn to Smile Again.
