Did you know that 57% of millennials say their pet makes them happier than anyone else, and 50% of baby boomers say the same thing? Wouldn’t it be great to keep your fur buddy with you for as long as possible?
Well, there are things you can do right now that can add years to your pet’s life! You can CLICK HERE for more details – and here’s a quick summary of what you can do:
For both dogs and cats, you may want to consider pet insurance, since an emergency vet visit can run $2,000 or more. Insurance not only minimizes the impact of an unexpected vet bill, it can also save your pet’s life by making cutting-edge treatments affordable if your pet needs them.
I hope those tips help you keep your animal companions happy and thriving for many years to come!
Thank you so much for helping MHS by being part of the 2019 Walk for Animals. We truly appreciate it!
Today I’d like to share tips and a link that can make fundraising easier and more fun for you. The best fundraisers know who they are and what they like, so read on to find out if you’re a puppy, dog, kitten, or cat!
Puppies see the whole world as one big playground. They’re eager to learn, always up for adventures, and thrilled to meet new people and make new friends. If you’re a Puppy Person, you’ll probably enjoy fundraising that’s exciting, public, busy, and involves meeting strangers as well as connecting with old friends.
Possible fundraisers for Puppy People: Rent-a-Worker; bake sales; yard sales; host a neighborhood barbeque with admission fee; form a Walk for Animals team to enjoy the camaraderie, raise more money faster, and foster friendly competition, encouragement, and participation.
Dogs are a lot like puppies, but they’re a bit more selective. They may not like cats and certain people, but they have lots of faithful friends and play with them as often as possible. If you’re a Dog Person, you may be less comfortable asking total strangers for support and might prefer to focus your time and energy on your “pack.”
Possible fundraisers for Dog People: Ask your company for a $100 contribution; write a newsletter and post it on your social media; set up a display at your work, church, or school to share why you support animals, hand out cards with your fundraising page’s URL, and ask people to donate online to you.
Kittens are shyer than puppies and dogs, and they’re all about doing their own thing. They play, nap, eat, and bond when THEY choose to, not when someone else thinks they should! If you’re a Kitten Person, you’ll probably want to fundraise on your terms, picking who you approach carefully so you feel comfortable.
Possible fundraisers for Kitten People: Ask four family members to sponsor you at $25 each; ask five friends or co-workers to sponsor you at $20 each; and email 10 people you know fairly well to ask for a $10 donation (see how easy it is to raise $300?).
Cats can be very shy, with a strong need for independence, order, serenity, and familiarity. They choose their friends carefully and like feeling safe and welcome. If you’re a Cat Person, you’ll probably be happiest if you fundraise at a distance and in a more formal way, or at least limit who you approach to people you trust and know really well.
Possible fundraisers for Cat People: Write handwritten letters in which you ask for a specific amount ($35 is the average donation to nonprofits nationwide), and deliver the letters personally to those you’re close to and mail to those you don’t know well. (And if you’re very shy, you can just make a donation yourself instead of asking others to support you.)
I hope these ideas help you find the fundraising activities you’ll enjoy the most. For more ideas, please visit this link:

Ready to learn more about being a part of a team? Email me, Lindsay Carter, at email@example.com! I look forward to hearing from you.
MHS ensures that animals are safe, housed, and loved, and we support human wellness as well, since research shows that the animal-human bond improves people's mental and physical health.
We also help low-income pet owners through our pet food pantry, affordable spay/neuter and rabies clinics, and free boarding for pets of those who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, or entering a substance abuse program.
In addition, MHS is working to eliminate animal abuse and neglect in New Hampshire, and our adoption services contribute $1,512,100 to the region's economy through revenue spent for vet care, food, litter, grooming, and other pet items.
We receive no federal or state funding, and we are not affiliated with any national animal welfare organizations such as HSUS or ASPCA. MHS relies on the generosity of our community for support. Learn more about us at www.monadnockhumanesociety.org.
