ChipIn- Any experiences with it?

Hi Folks,
The title pretty much states my question, but here is a little background on why I ask. For those of you that dont know I'm the state rescue coordinator for NY St Bernard Rescue. I pretty much cover the entire state by myself taking in saints from shelters and owner surrenders. Well long story short, there is a 2 year old saint in a local shelter that is heartworm postive and they dont have the money to treat him. He has a great temperament other then that he likes to play chase cats. Donations have been slim to none this year, and of course medical bills are getting ridiculous, and I have dogs just waiting for that special someone to come along and adopt them, so no money is coming in at all. So I was wondering if anyone has experience with this chip-in site? I'm desperate to raise the funds to save this dog, and currently the money just isnt there to do it. I am affiliated with the National Saint Bernard Rescue Foundation, so all donations are tax deductable. If anyone has any insight I greatly appreciate it!

Morgen

BDP uses ChipIn for all fundraisers that are not site maintenance (member dog in need, canine cancer fundraiser, expo fundraising etc) and it's been a godsend. I've also seen numerous rescues use it as well to help raise funds quickly and I have never seen anything move as fast when you share the chipin on Facebook - we raised every cent needed for Charlie's surgery and post-op care in a matter of a couple hours - just by every FB BDP member sharing it with their friends and family on FB!

No - that's weird... what browser are you using? You may have to scrap it and start over...

Have you looked into the slow kill method for treating his HW? Unless he is symptomatic, this route is a great alternative to the dangerous and costly Immiticide treatment. It takes longer, but the process is simple and any trusted adopter can do it. It is MUCH safer, MUCH easier on the dog and cheap! It is the method I use for my HW+ rescues with great success. If interested, let me know and I will share info.

We used the ChipIn for raising some funds for Addie on our clinic website. It's great! Good luck with the Saint!

Oh, and I would love some kind of sticky or something with Janice's slow kill info on it. I keep having to search the threads when I want to show someone.
