About the Event
Dear Friend of the Animals,
At the start of this year, if you had asked anyone at MarrVelous Pet Rescue & Adoptions (MPR) what we would be working on in the summer of 2020, we would have quickly replied, “Why rescuing animals and planning for our biggest fundraiser of the year, the 10th Annual Spayghetti and No Balls Gala, of course!” Sadly, just like the rest of the world hit so hard by Covid-19, our organization has had to make drastic changes and take a different path.
Yes! We are still rescuing animals, in fact, more now than ever. Many families hit hard by the pandemic are finding themselves struggling to support their family and furballs. To help them keep their pet, a major source of emotional support at this time, MPR jumped right in to help and in April started the Kibble Wagon, currently providing food and medications for 39 Upper Keys families- 60 dogs and 63 cats. In June, we hosted PPP- Pet Protection Program and provided free heartworm testing and 6 months of heartworm preventative to 108 dogs and cats. At the same time, MPR has taken in and provided all medical needs and support for over 80 animals and found forever homes for 45 animals, including dogs, cats, and guinea pigs! Our operating budget this year was set for $180,000, funded 100% by donations.
Sadly, our largest fundraising event, the 10 th Annual Spayghetti & No Balls Gala, has been canceled for 2020. Last year our net for this event was over $69,000, meaning over 1/3 of our budget will be lost this year.
Therefore, just like thousands of other non-profit organizations, MPR has had to create a new roadmap for success, which will allow us to continue to provide our critical services for pets of the Keys community.
We are hoping that you can attend from the comfort of your home. Please see website for more info www.MPRescues.org/S4M or call 305-619-4969.
On behalf of the animals in our care, we truly appreciate your support!
