Dear Friends,

I am writing to you today to respectfully request your help. I am a dog with a dream.
In my youth, I’ve valued fun over education. My neighbors at the shelter would show me the various tricks they learned, but I thought my personality and good looks were enough to get by. But my neighbors keep finding homes, and I’m still at the shelter…2 ½ years later. After much reflection sitting alone in my kennel at night, I realized I needed to get serious about life.
I want to go to college.
I’ve tried to do independent study at the shelter, but it’s difficult to focus with all the distractions here. My friend and mentor at the shelter, Brandon, has arranged for me to attend school at a local training facility. It’s an ongoing basic training/socialization program. It sounds like an exciting challenge, and I can’t wait to get started. Brandon thinks a few sessions in this program will help me achieve my goals and become a dog that some family will love to call their own. I really want a family. Brandon has a lot of faith in me, and I want to prove him right.
But, friends, college is expensive. Like most students, I need financial assistance. It’s my goal to raise $500 for my tuition. This will cover about 6 months of schooling. I hate to ask, but it’s very important to my future. Please consider donating to my college fund. You can send a check to the P.O. Box at the top of this letter or donate via PayPal on the shelter website, www.petprojectinc.org. Please reference “Shelby’s College Fund” with your donation. Your donation is tax-deductible too!
Thank you,

Shelby T. Pibble
