We are excited to announce the debut of Mainely Pets Foundation. This new entity is incorporated under Title 13-B M.R.S.A. Section 1406(C) as a public benefit corporation for charitable purposes.
Mainely Pets Foundation is a charitable entity founded in August of 2017 by Dr. Doug Andrews, Dr. Brian Graves, Dr. Oonagh Wack and the staff of Falmouth Veterinary Hospital to help pets, pet owners and pet care givers in times of distress or need right here in Maine.
Pets, pet owners and pet caregivers here in Maine who are experiencing trauma or financial need. Some cases will involve sick or injured pets, others may involve pet care givers experiencing a personal catastrophe such as a home or barn fire. Other request may benefit the community as well as the recipient, such as a police dog in need of a bullet proof vest.
An all-volunteer Finance/Disbursements Committee will review requests for aid each quarter – or as urgent needs come to the Committee’s attention, starting the end of 2017. Please note that to preserve the integrity of our donations, committee members and their immediate family will be exempt from receiving donations, and ALL administrative expenses for this start-up foundation are being paid for by Falmouth Veterinary Hospital.
Committee members: Oonagh Wack DVM., Melissa LeBrun, Laura Rust -- contact number for each: 207-781-4028.
