ma Cares Saves Animals in Need

According to ASPCA.org, each year approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters.  Sadly, approximately 2.7 million of these are euthanized. 
Here in Greensboro, Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network works to rescue and rehabilitate neglected, abused or otherwise unwanted animals in and around Guilford County, with a focus on domestic farm animals.  However, what happens when they’re presented with adog that has a bladder stone or a horse whose eaten rocks to survive?  Will they have the resources to save them?
Earlier this year, ma Cares started a relief fund to give sick or injured animals in the care of Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network a second chance at life.  Since its inception, 12 animals have been nursed back to health and many have found their forever homes.

There are many other animals that need our help.  Your support may save a life!  Donate today at www.macares.org.  Just email us at wecare@macares.org to let us know that your support is for Red Dog Relief by ma Cares!  Checks may be made payable to ma Cares and mailed to 1302 Pleasant Ridge Rd. Greensboro, NC 27409, Attn: Red Dog Relief.
Together we can give sick and injured animals a second chance at life.  To learn more visit http://www.macares.org/our-projects/red-dog-farm-animal-rescue-network.
