Many families today, especially those with children, are struggling to maintain a normal life. The loss of a job, an illness, injury or other major unexpected expense can have serious consequences for the household budget. In these difficult times, the financial burden of pet ownership is becoming more than many local families can bear. Individuals and families have been forced into making the wrenching decision of having to give up a beloved companion.
You can help these families keep their pets. Here’s how:
Making a secure, tax deductible gift on a one-time or recurring basis. Your donation will help Vermont and Massachusetts families care for and keep their pets.
Want to take your contribution even further? Consider running a pet food drive, pop-up pantry, or donation campaign in your community! We are happy to help you get your project off the ground in a COVID-safe manner.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our cause! We have particular need for those interested in transport, marketing, or fundraising efforts. Please contact us so we can discuss what you may be interested in and how we can best fit you into our organization.
I joined because I was looking for a way to help during the pandemic and I love animals especially cats – maybe more than people! Plus I work in health care with a low income population and knew how much people were struggling financially. I have loved being an active member of the task force. I am constantly learning new things and making new connections. I feel like I am making a real difference for people.
