Charity Fall Showcase
We are committed to giving back
Annually, we support three, N.H. pet charities through our Dog Walking Club. We create awareness of and raise funds for their mission to help pets and their people.
Every November, we host a Fall Showcase for our Charitable Partners. This highlights the great work they have done over the year as well as explains the additional support they need both financially and in goods and services.
If you are able to lend a hand and support one or all of our Charitable Partners this year, we would be grateful. Please read below to learn about each organizations' needs for 2020.
Thank you for caring!
A review of 2020
ElderPet, located in Durham, NH, offers pet medication assistance. When a pet is sick, often veterinary visits require expensive lab work and treatment. To assist a family pet with a chronic illness, ElderPet helps cover the cost of medications and/or prescription diets. This year, members of our Dog Walking Club have raised $569 to support this program, but additional help is needed.
Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption
Mary's Dogs, located in Northwood, NH, actively supports the efforts of their rescue partners in the south who work to reduce the number of homeless dogs. This is done by rescuing dogs off the streets and from shelters, and raising awareness of canine health issues and spay and neuter programs. This year, members of our Dog Walking Club have raised $690 to support this program, but additional help is needed.
Live and Let Live Farm's Rescue and Sanctuary
Live and Let Live Farm, located in Chichester, NH, is an animal shelter that rescues abused and unwanted animals, mainly horses, and pregnant dogs and cats, and provides them either a temporary or permanent safe place to interact with people. When possible, they find appropriate homes for rehabilitated animals. Those animals that are considered un-adoptable are given lifetime care at the farm. This year, members of our Dog Walking Club have raised $510 to support this program, but additional help is needed.
Meet our 2020 Charitable Partners
ElderPet is a service organization that facilitates the Human Animal Bond by providing pet related services to senior citizens, people with disabilities, hospice families, and clients of health care and other facilities in Strafford and seacoast Rockingham Counties. This is done via two branches – the Pet Partners Therapy Animal program and Pet-Related Community Services.
Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption
This fall and winter season, Mary's Dogs will continue to find forever homes for rescued dogs. When they arrive, the dogs are examined by a licensed veterinarian and microchipped. Once they receive a NH Health Certificate, and are observed by the rescue team, they are ready to be loved by you! Their support and medical care continues throughout the adoption process.
Live and Let Live Farm
With the the seasons changing, winter is fast approaching. As the Farm preps for hay storage for the horses and livestock, their need to help puppies, and pregnant dogs has increased greatly. Costs for transports from the Southern states and as far away as Texas, along with veterinary care, are staggering. Please consider a tax deductible donation to help them save as many of these precious lives as possible.
