LK9F is Now Eligible for AmazonSmile
You can now support LK9F through AmazonSmile!
It's simple. Only 2 easy steps:
1. Set Livermore K9 Foundation to be your supported charity.
2. Start your online amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com
AmazonSmile is a simple way that you can donate to the Livermore K9 Foundation at no extra cost to you. All you need to do is connect your Amazon account to connect with the Livermore K9 Foundation as your supported charitable organization and then when you start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com [instead of just amazon.com] a small portion of your purchases will be donated to LK9F from Amazon. And that's it. There is nothing else you need to do. It takes about a minute to get set up.
OK. There is one other thing you need to do: You must ALWAYS start your amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com. Everything else is exactly the same, the products available, the prices, everything. But if you don't start at smile.amazon.com then LK9F doesn't get a donation. So remember, it's smile.amazon.com.
If you're not sure how to get AmazonSmile set up on your account, watch the short video below and then head over to smile.amazon.com.
If you still have more questions, please scroll past this video. The information from Amazon about the AmazonSmile program has been copied + pasted here for your information.

From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations.
