We are Cindy Rettke & Del Schroader of Staycation Pet Care

   Welcome to our campaign to save homeless pets. Staycation Pet Care is a pet sitting service which has been caring for doggies and other animals for the last four years.                                            http://staycationpetcare.com/home

   We are raising money for a self serve dog wash station which will give 50% of all profits from the wash station  to help find homes for homeless pets. The money donated from the use of the wash station will go towards  assisting local foster homes who take in animals, Humane Society and other programs which helps find homes for the many in need plus spay/neuter & chip implant programs.

   Every time our wash station is used, half of the profits from that wash station will go to spay/neuter programs and chip implant programs, both of which will focus on providing low or no cost services to the public. And to assist local shelters in finding homes for the animals they have. The most important benefit from the wash station is the internet based information hub mentioned above. We will use the Evolution TV built right on the unit {as shown below} to post our website for shelter animals information, upcoming adoption events and a 24 hour toll free hotline to ensure that no call regarding adoption of these pets goes unanswered. 



Please take the time to enjoy this demonstration video to see the wash station in action.                                                  Dog Wash Demo Link


This is Marie, a sweet, soft and cuddly little cutie and she is just waiting for you to take her home. Come and get her at the Freeborn County Humane Society  {507-377-8501} or contact us at www.staycationpetcare.com 507-369-3116

       Please go to our gallery to see more doggies and kitties who need your help

       Most importantly, our pet wash station will also be an information hub for animals who need homes. Complete with each animal's pictures, personality bio and information for adoption which will be shown on a built in TV screen right on the unit as shown in the picture above of the wash station. The information will be for homeless pets in our surrounding area and eventually for homeless pets everywhere.

   We can only make a difference in these animals lives with your help. This wash station will be in Albert Lea, Minnesota and will be the first of what we hope will be many more stations in other areas so we can help as many animals as possible. With your help we can create a perpetual flow of donations from these wash stations to fund these programs. We need to share each and every pets picture and information with the people because that is what gets these animals out of cages and into loving homes. Our information hub will focus on simplicity and be internet based so that anyone can view these pets from their own computer also. Any animal who needs a home can be placed on our site and if he/she pulls at your heart strings and you want more information there will be a toll free 24 hour hotline to speak with a staff whose sole purpose is to place pets into loving homes.


This is Mandy a way cool dogie who is as sweet as can be and is now a happy camper because she has a good home with lots of love. Many, many more need our help! 

            What We Need & What You Get

   We need everyone who is viewing this site to give what you can because you  understand the impact this wash station will have on the lives of pets who are right now living in cages.

The money you give will cover; Purchase of the unit, delivery and installation, modifications and upgrades to the unit to fit our needs and to build and maintain our website for the animals pictures and info.

Should we fall short of our goal, all money donated will be held in an account until other means of financing are secured and the amount needed for this station is reached. Should we exceed our goal, the extra donation money will go to the charities supported by this station. All of you who donate will receive weekly updates, first on this site during the 60 days of this campaign and every week thereafter on our website www.staycationpetcare.com . You will be with us every step of the way including our grand opening and beyond.

   The success of this wash station will not be measured in dollars and cents, but by the number of animals who will be saved and put into loving homes as a direct result of people finding their pets information at our station. We will quantify all successful adoptions and you will be able to see the number of happy endings and read their stories submitted by their newly adopted families.

                                                                 You get

                                                  The Impact

     "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated"

                                                                                                     Mahatma Gandhi

   This wash station will have long lasting effects on our community and other communities as our network grows. We want to become known as the place to go to find a pet by putting these animals pictures and information out to the public at this wash station. The best part is that the wash station produces money to help the process along the way. Your donation will make you an active contributor to these animals every time someone washes their pet at our station. Your gift will continue to give long after your donation. 

   No perks or freebies will feel as rewarding as the feeling you will get knowing that your gift to these animals does not end with your donation you give today. Every time someone uses our wash station, half of the profit from that wash will go to help these animals and it is, by extension, another donation from you. 

  By helping us to fund this wash station you will help to create a flow of donations for years to come.
