Misha May Mutterings 11-19-2010


It was definitely MORE than just one moment for mutts! What a great time for the people, and what a great fund raiser for the animals, thanks to the guests, donors, volunteers, sponsors and entertainment.

As of right now, we raised over $7000 at our annual fund raiser and 10th anniversary A Moment for Mutts. Of that amount, $2445.55 was specifically earmarked toward our $4700 medical and boarding bills.

We paid the Mercury Cafe $920 for food and set-up. Natural Awakenings donated the beautiful programs and other printed materials.

If you left early, please check with me to see what items you may have won.

If you were unable to attend, you can still help by looking at the Silent Auction items in the next box and emailing a bid. Or you can use the Make a Donation button at the left for a $25 donation toward the remaining bills.

The Grand Prize Basket, worth over $2300, was won by Gabrielle Allen, who received it at the event.

You can see videos of the event using the Facebook and Blog links at left or going to our YouTube channel.

Hope to see you at Mimi's on November 29th. We are doing Santa Photos on Dec 4 at the Englewood Petco and Dec 11 at Murdoch's. Check our website for details, events page.

Executive Director

Misha, The Misha May Foundation's namesake, died on November 14th, 2000. This event is to remember her and to celebrate her legacy of saving dogs at risk. Misha was on her way to be relinquished at a shelter when she was rescued. She found her way to Lorraine and that was the beginning of this story.

Libby, a Black Lab mix, welcomes Buddy as a permanent member of the household. Buddy, the Golden mix,
a Misha May dog rescued first from a shelter when he ran out of time and then rescued a second time when the owner had to move, finally relaxes in his forever home. Thanks Anthony, Barbi and Libby!
