Medfield Animal Shelter Matching Donation – $15,000

The Medfield Animal Shelter is pleased to announce this year’s
matching challenge fundraiser.  A group of longtime shelter supporters
have offered to match every dollar that is donated to the Medfield
Animal Shelter between November 15, 2011 and January 15, 2012 — up to
$15,000!  Previous matching challenge fundraisers have helped us raise
a significant portion of our operating budget for the year, allowing
our volunteers to spend more time helping pets in need.

This year’s challenge grant will help the Shelter to continue meeting
the needs of the many cats, dogs and other critters we are asked to
help every day. In order to address the cat overpopulation problem in
the only way that has proven to be both effective and humane, we have
recently created a small surgical suite we are using to host two low
cost spay/neuter clinics for cats every month.   We made a significant
investment to do this, but feel it is a crucial part of fulfilling our
mission to help end the overpopulation of pets that results in an
estimated 5 million 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.

Pets in Massachusetts continue to lose their homes at an unprecedented
rate due to the economic downturn, and we want to be able to help as
many as possible in 2012, so we need your support. 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, 2012!  Please include a
note with your donation letting us know that your donation is for the
Matching Challenge Grant.  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 a no-kill shelter and every dog, cat
and rabbit 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 in need from the surrounding communities as space
permits.
