Current Nail Clipping Charity
Missing Dogs Massachusetts (MDM) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that works to reunite missing and found dogs with their families. MDM works cooperatively with animal control officers, rescues, shelters, law enforcement and the media. In 2015 MDM assisted in the recovery of 700 dogs. When a canine family member goes missing, panic often sets in, and without direction, a search can seem overwhelming. MDM can provide an owner with no cost methods to share their dogs image and information, proven steps to follow, and when neccesary and possible, the means and equipment to help bring their lost dog home. MDM works through social media to raise awareness of currently missing dogs, and dogs that have been found and are in search of their family.
Education and outreach can help lessen the number of lost dogs as well an hasten their return home. MDM seeks to provide information and tools that will lessen the flow of "found" dogs that make their way into an already crowded shelter system. Loss prevention education plays a vital role in keeping dogs safe and preventing the heartache, stress and expense of undertaking a lost dog search.
MDM relies solely on the generosity of donors to fund it's activities and programs. Proceeds from this quarter will allow expansion of their efforts (equipment, education, training and loss prevention).
