Our Biggest Fundraiser of the Year Starts Tomorrow

We are so happy to announce this year's matching challenge fundraiser is for even more money than last year! A small group of longtime shelter supporters has once again offered to match every dollar that is donated to the Medfield Animal Shelter between December 1, 2009 and January 15, 2010 — up to $20,000! Previous matching challenge fundraisers have helped us raise most of our operating budget for the year, allowing our volunteers to spend more time helping pets in need.

This year's fundraiser is very important to the Shelter, as we have experienced a significant increase in the number of pets needing shelter due to the economy. As always, we are trying to help as many as we possibly can. In the last year we have taken in many adoptable dogs from local Animal Control Officers and dog pounds where they would otherwise have been euthanized. We also sponsored a veterinarian who has provided low cost spay and neuter services at the Shelter for over 500 cats in the last 11 months. These services are a crucial part of our ongoing commitment to help end the overpopulation of pets that results in approximately 5 million (many people think the number is much higher) companion pets being euthanized at shelters in the U.S. every year. All of our work is possible thanks to our wonderful volunteers and supporters.

You can make your donation to this worthy cause go twice as far by making a donation to the Medfield Animal Shelter by January 15, 2010. The Matching Challenge Grant is open to anyone wishing to support the Medfield Animal Shelter, so please spread the word and make a donation today!

The Medfield Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization. The Shelter is a no-kill and every pet is spayed or neutered prior to being placed in a new home. The Animal Control Officers from both the towns of Dover and Medfield bring all of their stray pets to the Medfield Animal Shelter, and we take in pets from the surrounding area as space permits.

Tax-deductible donations can be sent to:

Medfield Animal Shelter
