Thanks to the generosity of the B.A.A. and John Hancock, I have the opportunity to run Boston 2014 and give back to an organization that I hold dear to my heart - Pets In Need.
I fell in love with a cute, friendly, playful kitten nearly 9 years ago when she was being fostered by a Pets In Need volunteer. I can't even bear to think about where our loyal and loving cat may have ended up if not for this organization.
A strictly no-kill rescue, Pets In Need provides all of their animals with a warm place to stay and appropriate medical care until they find their new owners. They even take pets from other rescues and shelters that are going to be euthanized as a result of behavior or medical problems, overpopulation or financial burden.
My goal is to raise as much as possible (funds and awareness) to enable these dedicated volunteers to continue to save animals who cannot be properly cared for by their previous owners or other facilities. Please help me support their hard work by making a contribution today.
