Frequently asked questions & directions:

What is Community Rewards sponsored by Kroger?
  Kroger announced they will give $5 million to charitable organizations through their Community Rewards program. Shoppers can register their Kroger Plus cards online and choose "Columbus Cocker Rescue" as a beneficiary through the program. Kroger will award up to a maximum of $1.25 million per quarter, to be distributed among all eligible organizations. Organizations will receive a check for an amount based on the percentage of spending for the organization in comparison to that of the other registered organizations.

Does this cost anything to me, or is something tacked onto my grocery bill?  NO, this costs you nothing.  Kroger sends a portion of it's profits from your sale every quarter, directly to Columbus Cocker Rescue.  It is a donation strictly from Kroger, donated because of you & your patronage to their store.

How do I link my Kroger Plus card to Columbus Cocker Rescue?
1 of 2 ways. 

First, you can go online here: www.krogercommunityrewards.com , and sign up your Kroger Plus Card online & link your Plus Card account to Ohio's Columbus Cocker Rescue.

Second way, is to take this form, with Columbus Cocker Rescue's barcode on it, to the Kroger service desk, & have a Kroger staff member link your Kroger Plus Card to the rescue.  It is that easy!

Can my card be linked to more than one organization?
  No.  You are allowed to link your Kroger Plus Card only to one participating organization at any time.

Can I change my current organization linked to my card, to another?  Yes.  The organization benefited may be changed after 6 months. Once successfully registered, it will take about 7-10 business days before you will see "At your request, Kroger is donating to Columbus Cocker Rescue" at the bottom of grocery receipts. Alcohol, tobacco, postage stamps, gift cards and a few other items are not eligible.

How does this work?
  When you buy groceries at a participating Kroger store, just make sure you use your Kroger Plus Card.  That's it!  That is all you need to do.  Every quarter, all linked Columbus Cocker Rescue Kroger Plus Card purchases are combined, and a check made out to & sent to Columbus Cocker Rescue.  Every gallon of milk, every candy bar, every loaf of bread can add up!  See the example of what the rescue receives below.

How much does this really donate to Columbus Cocker Rescue?
  Well, we only had 12 participants signed up last quarter, which resulted in a check for $126.54 for one quarter alone!  Just think if we can get our family, friends, coworkers & neighbors signed up!  We could pay for several surgeries that our furkids need, treatments & other things we need to keep our foster cockers healthy & happy.  Just see the example below to view the last quarter report.  (for privacy reasons, most identifying factors have been removed).

So please help out the rescue by linking your card to the cocker kids if you are able to in your area.  With all the needed procedures that some of these deserving cockers need, every penny counts.  This is a great way to donate, without any expense to you.

Everyone, many thanks for all you do!
