Since its inception, AniMatch has served as a resource for the Massachusetts animal welfare community. We are an all-volunteer organization and our services are free to participating organizations. We depend on donations to help us support our work.
The majority of your donations are used to provide emergency medical or behavioral assistance. In some cases, a simple medical procedure can assure that a dog will find its way to an organization that can find him a forever home. Other animals enter a shelter or rescue with behavioral issues that, if addressed, can improve the animal’s life and make it more adoptable.
In one situation, an injured stray dog was found by an Animal Control Officer in a small, rural community. The dog was friendly and a good adoption candidate, but the unknown origin of the wound required 180 days of state-mandated quarantine to rule out rabies. This was impossible for the community shelter to provide. AniMatch stepped in, and through our emergency fund and network of contacts, we were able to find and pay for a quarantine facility for this lovely dog so she would ultimately be able to find an adoptive home.
In another situation, we were able to provide, through our emergency fund, behavioral training to facilitate transfer and eventual adoption of a stray dog.
When you donate to AniMatch, you enable our emergency fund to help those animals that may have no other options for getting needed care.
Our other operating expenses include:
- Supplies and equipment to assist volunteers in transporting animals between shelters/rescues.
- Web hosting fees for the maintenance of the AniMatch database where shelters and rescues post animals in need of assistance.
- Liability insurance to protect our volunteers and program participants.
- Printing, office supplies and postage for necessary AniMatch communications and marketing materials.
