I do want to emphasize that the site will go on as long as I do, with or without donations...it is just too important of a resource for people like us (hopefully i can pass it along to one of my children one day)

With that said, all funds received beyond the site hosting and domain renewal fees (via member donation and through amazon.com affiliate rewards) will go to one or more shelters in the form of funds or supplies. This way, lightning-strike.com can help both pet-lovers in need as well as the animals they love.

To donate, visit our pet loss donations page.

Current Donations (as of 2017-11-20)

amazon.com affiliate funds:

$0.00

Member donations received:

$25.00

Next Host Billing Date:
08-08-18 $327

Hi MD:

I just want to say that I have been very, very blessed by your wonderful "Lightning Strike"..... biggrin.gif

I am soooooooo happy that this site was available during the very early morning hours of 2/8/2004...... I didn't know
what to do and I didn't know where to go.
After having our beautiful girl put to sleep on 2/7/2004, yes, I had the very loving arms of Ben to fall into, and he, into my arms...........

But, when it was early in the morning, and I was left alone with my thoughts.....it was just too difficult & painful.
I missed my girl soooooooooo very much!!!! sad.gif

But, upon finding LS, and reading everyone's posts, I quickly realized that "I was not alone in my pain or my grief"....
That, "others understood"....

I believe that the payment to keep LS running is all set for 2004....

It might be a nice idea if everyone (who could), donate $1.00, so that the funds will be taken care of for 2005.

I don't know...............it's just a thought....a suggestion....

Lightning Strike has meant the world to me, (of course, it still does), and I am very sure that this site means so very much to lots of other people........ wub.gif

I was very, very happy to read that "any extra monies" will go to one or more shelters; whether it be in the form of funds or supplies!!!!! biggrin.gif God knows that they do a wonderful service, and require so much needed help!!
FANTASTIC IDEA!!!!

Another idea, might be to send along a portion of "extra monies" to the "Animal Poison Control Center".... I don't know;
it's just a thought............ They were absolutely wonderful when I needed expert (and quick) advice after Ms. Lucy was recently poisoned.

That's all.........just wanted to let you know my thoughts!!!

Peace,
Denise

Thank you for bringing this thread up. Somehow I didn't see it before. I don't have a lot, but I don't know what I would have done without this site so I made a small paypal donation. Thank you for being there.

I too thank you for bringing this post up. I know these things cost, but just didn't think about it here. DUH Guess my mind has been on other things.

Thank you so much for being here. My donation wasn't huge, I hope it helps.

Thanks again

This donation is made in loving memory of my best buddy, Little Man, (Zoey) on his three year anniversary at the bridge.

This website was certainly a lifeline for me in my time of need and I hope our donatons will continue to help keep it available for all grieving pet lovers.

Thanks MD for continuing to provide a much needed service.

I never saw this thread before now, and I, like Moose mom, never thought about any costs that came along with running such a site. I made a donation today in memory of my precious girl and I hope that this site can continue to help myself and others for a long time to come....

Hi There,

Since I once had a dreadful experience w/paypal (from what I understand, I'm the only one in the world who ever has). Suspicious sort that I am, I was wondering if there is a p.o box or such to send a check.

Please advise (or maybe I'll use my husbands credit card ohmy.gif ).

Thanks, Sharon

a Big Tribble Thank You goes out to John for his donation of $20 to the website. i have updated the tally above to reflect the donations to date.

those of you who are using amazon.com to shop for the holidays, we are an affiliate. a percentage of what you spend goes towards the website (i have no idea who is buying what, so no fear to your privacy there).

you can 'automagically' help pay the annual costs for L-S.com by clicking here. have a happy holidays!
