Each year, more than 17 million Americans will bring a new furry family member into their home. At the same time, more than 4 million animals will die in shelters around the country annually. The numbers are sobering, but the math is quite simple. If just 1 in 4 people were to adopt an animal instead of getting them from another source, together we could end the tragedy of animals dying in shelters. It is for this reason that My Furry Valentine was founded as a 510(c)(3) more than 4 years ago.
My Furry Valentine’s sole mission is to provide a fun, festive, family-oriented event that makes adoption an easy and happy option. Hosted at the Sharonville Convention Center over Valentine’s Day Weekend, more than 50 different rescues and shelters are invited to bring their adoptable animals at no charge to them. And thanks to this event, over the past 4 years, more than 2,000 homeless Cincinnati animals have been found their forever homes.
As you can imagine, pulling together a two-day event with more than 10,000 attendees and hundreds of animals, takes thousands of volunteer hours and the financial support from our sponsors and friends like you. Frankly, we couldn’t do it without you!
This Holiday Season, we’d like to ask you to consider making a tax deductible donation to My Furry Valentine. No donation is too small! As a thank you, we will recognize you, or an honoree, in our My Furry Valentine Event program. Make a gift in someone’s name, and they will receive a special card acknowledging your gift. Or pay it forward by celebrating a beloved pet (that has passed on or is with you today) by helping an animal in need find their own place to call home. It’s a nice tribute to pass the love along!
Thank you for all of your help and support! It takes a village and we are so grateful for ours!
