Thanks for joining us in the celebration! We truly appreciate your support for the last 25 years and thank you for helping us achieve this milestone!

MATCH 25 Rescue/Shelter Fund 
As part of our 25th anniversary celebration, our customers made cash donations to MATCH 25 for eight months of this year. Originally, Especially for Pets planned to match these donations. Instead, we have decided to double it, bringing the total contribution to $25,000! This means that each of the five non-profits will receive a donation of $5,000! Congratulations to the following rescue groups and shelters who were chosen by our customers via electronic voting throughout the month of October:

- Animal Shelter, Inc.
- Neponset Valley Humane Society
- Baypath Humane Society
- MetroWest Humane Society
- Guardian Angels Cat Rescue

 We greatly appreciate our customers’ generous donations over the past eight months and our relationships with the participating non-profits!

 Thank you!
