INTRODUCING THE MOST VULNERABLE FACES OF MAARC FOR GIVING TUESDAY
Messengers, we won't lie. This year has been challenging for the animals of the Maryville Alcoa Animal Rescue Center. COVID-19 prevented us from holding adoption events outside of our location, volunteer burnout resulted in turn over, and the animals just kept on arriving to the Maryville City Shelter.
However, during this tumultuous year of a savage pandemic, a drama filled political climate, killer hornets, masks, social distancing, and a vet bill in one month that totaled $11,556, YOU dear messengers, have been relentless in your giving.
These are the faces of MAARC's most vulnerable animals that YOU have contributed in saving. ODIE, with his continuous and arduous heartworm treatment. MING with the neglect to her potentially luxurious coat. COCOA and her multiple fractures from her encounter with a car. TYLER the feral cat who needed basic vet care, until he could find the perfect barn for him. SMURF with just one eye at such a young age., and the KITTENS. Sweet heavens, the multitude of kittens who arrived in our care and custody this year.
For GIVING TUESDAY, we ask that you continue to keep these animals at the forefront of your mind. As volunteers, we don't receive compensation for their care. It's a labor of love: and, it allows all of your generosity to go towards caring for our furry friends until they are whole and healed to move on to the next chapter of their lives.
THANK YOU. For following our page, and for giving out of the kindness of your heart to the animals of MAARC who depend on us to help them. Remember them for #givingtuesday, and be on the look out for our newest arrivals.
