Shortly before Veterans Day, we partnered with WZLX 100.7’s Karlson & Mackenzie’s Morning Show to raise money for veterans seeking service dogs from Operation Delta Dog. Their goal was to raise $10,000. As a repeat sponsor of this event and supporter of this organization, we knew it was a worthy cause that would positively impact several lives!
In keeping with the philanthropic spirit at Especially for Pets, we offered to match listener donations up to $5000. Well, the generous Karlson & McKenzie listeners donated more than $5,700 and our match brought the total to $10,700.
Bo is a one year old chocolate Labrador Retriever who was rescued by Labrador Retriever Rescue. He was sent to Operation Delta Dog for training to become a service dog for Groton resident, Fred, a former U.S. Marine and Purple Heart recipient. This is just one example of a veteran/dog partnership who recently received help from Operation Delta Dog with funding from generous donors, such as Especially for Pets.

Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton is excited to announce that Especially for Pets has selected our shelter to be their First Quarter 2015 Charity Nail Clipping program recipient! Especially for Pets supports animals in need by offering nail clipping for free, in exchange for a donation to a pre-selected local animal welfare organization. When you bring your dog or cat to one of their groomers to have their nails trimmed during the first quarter of 2015, you’ll be helping the animals at Baypath Humane Society.
“Purrfect Travels,” a recently launched advocacy book for cats in need, has partnered with local pet store chain Especially for Pets to raise funds for the Gifford Cat Shelter in Brighton this summer.
A photo book of “Cattitude in 23 international destinations,” Purrfect Travels is more than a coffee table conversation piece. According to author and Westford resident Eugenia Bachert, the publication is the beginning of a brand that is intended to support organizations that do good deeds for cats.
Cat Rescue of Marlborough and Hudson (CaRMaH) is a local volunteer organization that maintains a foster care adoption program with regularly scheduled Meow Mixers. With $7,808 raised in donations from our fourth quarter 2013 nail clipping fundraiser, Especially for Pets has helped to advance their mission. The check was presented to volunteers Leona Johnson and Ellen Silverstein at Especially for Pets in Westborough on March 18.
