MATCH 25 Rescue/Shelter Fund
As part of our 25th anniversary celebration, and with your help, we are offering five local rescues and shelters the unique opportunity to win up to $10,000 or more! From now until September 30, 2013, when you shop at Especially for Pets and make a donation in any denomination to the MATCH 25 Rescue/Shelter Fund, we will match it dollar for dollar, up to $25,000! This means, potentially up to $50,000 or more could be divided equally and donated to five local rescues and shelters.

Ten worthy organizations were chosen via blind draw to participate in MATCH 25.

  • All Dog Rescue

  • MetroWest Humane Society
  • NEARR (North East All Retriever Rescue)

You, the Voters, Ultimately Decide the Five Winners!
From October 1 to October 31, you will have the opportunity to vote electronically for your top five rescues/shelters. Only one vote per IP address will be accepted for the contest. The top five rescues/shelters receiving the most votes will split the total donation amount and each will receive up to $10,000 or more. The total donation amount will be divided equally between the five winners and each will receive up to $10,000 or more! The winners will be announced in November.
