We absolutely love the folks over at the Animal Care Center. They do an amazing job taking care of the island’s cats and dogs. We wanted to support the ACC in a big way which is why we chose them as one of the four charities that will receive a portion of the proceeds from our St. Johnopoly game. (You can preorder yours at www.newsofstjohn.com/stjohnopoly)
But we have some more great news … we’re not the only ones who are showing the love to the ACC. Joshua Vernon of Massachusetts is putting together a fundraising event for people living in and around the Boston area, and all proceeds will benefit the ACC. How wonderful is that?!
The event is scheduled for Sunday, August 24 at Donohue’s Bar & Grill in Watertown, Massachusetts. The event will feature a silent raffle, again with all proceeds directly supporting the ACC. They have a ton of great items so far including two-night stays at both the Westin and the St. John Inn, a weekend stay with breakfast and dinner at the Salem Waterfront Hotel in Massachusetts, a half day snorkel charter with Captain Jimbo, and a ton of gift certificates and gift baskets.
Here is a list of all of the items available as of July 25: ACC Massachusetts Fundraiser Items
The ACC is also in need of a few very important items. For starters, they really need a truck to transport the animals to and from vet appointments. So if there is a generous donor out there, it would be greatly appreciated.
The ACC is also in need of harnesses for the dogs (pictured below) and large dog treats or rawhide bones. These bones entertain the dogs throughout the day while they are in the kennel.
