The Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund was established by SOAR to assist with senior rescue Airedales, and their expenses, using the following criteria:
- The senior Airedale must be a rescue Airedale, and must be at least 8 years old at the time services were provided and a grant was applied for by a new family.
- Grants are available for senior Airedales while they are in rescue and after adoption.
- Ongoing expenses such as, but not limited to, medications, check ups or special food may be reimbursed up to the amount of $50 per month.
- Special treatments and surgeries may be reimbursed up to the amount of $500 per treatment/surgery.
External grants: Legitimate Airedale rescue groups other than SOAR may apply for grants from the Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund by submitting the information, outlined below, to the SOAR President at firstname.lastname@example.org. This information should include the name and contact person for the rescue group that is requesting the grant; the name and contact information of the adoptive family (if applicable); the Airedale’s name, proof of age coming into rescue and/or at the time of placement, and sex; a brief description of the medical problem or issue that funds are being requested for; the name and contact information of the veterinarian who has diagnosed the medical problem or issue; an estimate of the total cost of treatment; and the prognosis for the dog’s recovery after treatment.
SOAR dogs will have priority use of the Senior Fund. In order to maintain an adequate balance to cover needs of SOAR dogs, no external grants will be made that will drop the balance in the Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund below $1,500.
All grant requests for money from the Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund must be submitted to the SOAR Board by the President for Board approval. Board approval may be sought by email and/or telephone between quarterly Board meetings, but must be recorded in the Board minutes of the next meeting. Requests may be fully or partially funded or may be rejected without specifying the reason for rejection.
The President is authorized to approve spending from the Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund for a SOAR dog up to a maximum of $500 without Board approval, but this expenditure must be immediately reported to the Board by email or telephone and must be recorded in the Board minutes of the next quarterly meeting.
The mission of SOAR is to rescue purebred Airedale Terriers who have found themselves without a home, and help them get started on the road to a happy, new life.
