At Muddy Creek we put the Fun in Fund RaisingJanuary 21, 2009
Jan 21, 2009: ROWLEY, MA – InTown Veterinary Group today presented a donation of $6,000 to Zoo New England thanks to the extraordinary success of Muddy Creek Animal Care Center’s 3rd annual Dogtoberfest, held on October 19, 2008. We were gratified to have been able to almost double our donation in 2008 over the $3,500 donated in 2007.
As a provider of veterinary care to domesticated animals and the families who love them, Zoo New England’s mission to inspire people to protect and sustain the natural world by integrating conservation programs, research and education, is one that is very near and dear to our hearts at InTown Veterinary Group. We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with the Zoo and feel that promoting a love of wildlife, animals and the environment is the key to ensuring a sustainable natural environment for generations to come.
“We are very grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of Dogtoberfest 2008,” said John Linehan, President & CEO of Zoo New England, which manages both Stone Zoo and Franklin Park Zoo. “InTown Veterinary Group shares our commitment to both wildlife conservation and the exceptional care of animals, so we are especially honored that they chose Zoo New England as the beneficiary of this wonderful event.”
The $6,000 donation was generated through ticket sales from 480 people and their dogs, generous donations from vendors, and sales of raffle tickets, cotton candy, agility “training” and pet massages. We at InTown Veterinary Group and Muddy Creek Animal Care Center would like to express our thanks to each participant and to all of our wonderful volunteers for helping to make the day so much fun. Judging by the smiles, the laughter and the tail wagging, Dogtoberfest 2008 was a tremendous success.
It gives us great pleasure at Muddy Creek Animal Care Center and InTown Veterinary Group, to have played a role in creating a community event bringing families, friends and their beloved pets all together in one place. We are already excited about Dogtoberfest 2009 and hope to once again exceed our attendance and charitable donation!
