Great organization helping an underfunded county shelter. Awesome volunteers help two paid staff members at the shelter, run a thrift store, foster, rescue runs, roadblocks, donate time and money...everything!!
Wow, where to start!
I first became aware of MCFA through its thrift store run by an all volunteer staff and offering goods that have been donated by the community.
As we are animal people we inquired about their mission and goals. We were hooked when we learned what was going on behind the scene concerning adoption and the efforts to reduce euthanasia in Monroe County.
Volunteer staff take litters of animals home to "grade" them for adoption purposes.
Frequently trips are made to no kill shelters in need of adoptable pets. They range from puppies needed in New York to mature pets for a retirement community in Florida.
The goal to build a no kill shelter along with a thrift store to support it is a great step towards helping the communities animal control and education, but that is not all it does.
The quality of items offered at such a reasonable offer helps those less fortunate in the community. Clothing and furniture is routinely given to people who have a need due to fire or natural catastrophes that affect communities in the area.
When cleaning the clutter from your home or business please consider donating to MCFA.
