BENEFITING: FAIRY DOGPARENTS

Christine Murphy

THE STORY:

I first heard of Fairy Dogparents a few months ago when I entered a bowl-a-thon with some friends that run a doggie day care. I think what they do is absolutely remarkable!! They provide assistance to animal owners so their pets can receive the food they need, medication they need, or surgery they need during this financial crisis.

They are a completely non-profit organization so 100% of the funds goes towards goods and services for the animal recipients. And everything they do is to keep families together and prevent dog from being surrendered to shelters for financial reasons!!

Let's help them out!!

PS. Here's a little snippit from the Boston Globe July 15, 2010 -- for the full article copy this link: http://bit.ly/c8fEBJ

Duxbury resident Marlo Manning is the dynamo behind the nonprofit, which she founded in March 2009 following the death of her own dog.

“Ladybug had been a rescue dog and had tons of diseases,’’ Manning said. “When I went to get her ashes, I told the vet tech I was used to the expense of my dog, so could I be a silent donor for someone else? The vet tech mentioned a newspaper story about all the pets being surrendered due to the economy.’’

That story was the spark. After a good deal of research, Manning found only a handful of organizations nationwide that offered support to owners to help them keep their pets. By June last year, Fairy DogParents was up and running. “When people say those words, ‘I’m bringing my dog to a shelter because I can’t afford to take care of him,’ that’s when Fairy DogParents comes in,’’ she said.

Manning operates with just a couple of volunteers, storing supplies at her home and making most deliveries herself. “We’re still small enough where I can name every single dog we’ve had,’’ she said.

To date, the group has helped 32 dogs stay in their homes. “We’ve had requests from Wilbraham, the Cape, and along the Connecticut border,’’ Manning said. “And 17 of our requests have been from the South Shore.’’
