We all have many worthy causes to which we can make charitable contributions. Today, we would like to make our case for why your donation to Maine Friends of Animals (MFOA), Maine's leading animal protection organization, is an excellent "investment" and use of your money.

Our nearly two-decade history demonstrates how and why we have become the state's leading animal protection organization. What it does not show is what we have accomplished on a surprisingly small budget. If one were to view our budget and look at our 'timeline' of accomplishment, a strong case can be made that our donors receive a "good bang for their buck." Yes, it is a business analogy, but like a business, MFOA functions at its best when there is strong, supportive funding.     

We are in the serious "business" of reducing and ending animal abuse and suffering in Maine. When you consider where to place your charitable dollars, please consider a donation to MFOA as an investment in an organization that has already shown a capacity of accomplishing much with limited resources.

 From revamping the State Animal Welfare Program, addressing the cruelty of coyote snaring and treatment of circus elephants, from establishing our "Dogs Chained for Life" and Pet Club programs to supporting a State referendum to ban bear baiting, hounding and trapping, from focuses on canned hunting, puppy mills, horse racing/slaughter to the eight pieces of legislation that have improved the lives of Maine's dogs and cats, MFOA has led the way in Maine, tirelessly speaking up for animals.

As engaged as we are, we have no paid staff, operate from a donated office space and are driven by a very active volunteer board of directors. As a result, 100% of your donation goes to our efforts to help Maine's animals. We are ready to move to the next level: when you make your next charitable donation, we hope you will consider Maine Friends of Animals as an excellent investment. If you like what we have done in the last 18 years -- imagine what we could do with increased funding.  

Please support our tireless efforts on behalf of Maine's animals by donating TODAY!
