The Cindi Mysyk Senior Fund (“the 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 have been at least 8 years old at the time they came into rescue, or at the time they were adopted 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, treatments 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.
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 Senior Fund below $1,500.
All grant requests for money from the 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 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.
