Bostons are the Best
Help a Boston
PEACE, LOVE AND BELLY RUBS FROM THE 2019 BUDDIES!
Gratitude. An affirmation of the gifts and benefits received from others. A simple thank you seems insufficient to acknowledge the goodness Boston Buddies has received over the past 17 years from the donors, volunteers, veterinarian offices, foster families and adoptive families who support our mission. Working together we have all made a difference in the lives of over 2200 dogs. This year’s holiday card features the faces of the dogs your generosity of time and money assisted during 2019.
Throughout 2019 we continued our focus on helping those most in need – the senior and special medical needs dogs. Dogs like Karma (attacked by a coyote, losing an eye and both of her puppies and placed on house quarantine for 6 months), Cooper (abandoned at the shelter at 6 weeks old with two horribly injured eyes that were saved by quick surgical and medical intervention), Mini Cooper (left at the shelter with severe neck pain resolved by spinal surgery), and Harvey (IBD/Lymphangectasia treated under the care of a veterinary internist).
Our year round fundraising efforts in addition to our holiday appeal are what allow Boston Buddies to continue to take dogs into rescue and provide them with the help they need. Many of you participated in one or more of our special fundraising events last year: online auctions, Strut Your Mutt, two Holiday Fiestas and, last but not least, our Annual Boston Tea Party. Speaking of the Boston Tea Party, in 2019 we held our Inaugural Boston Terrathon Race and one of the winners was Boston Buddies alumnus Charlie Bear who came to us in August 2018 paralyzed in his back legs. Because of our generous donors we were able to get Charlie Bear the spinal surgery and physical therapy he needed to recover use of his back legs – and he came back to win the race!
With much gratitude, all of us at Boston Buddies wish each and every one of you a very happy holiday season and send our best wishes for a prosperous and healthy 2020.
