To All of My Dear Volunteers..
Winter has arrived and MAS Rescue is busier than ever. Our foster families are hanging tough, I know how difficult it is to juggle family, friends, shopping, cooking and cleaning puppy/kitty messes. One less thing would be helpful... right?

But I can always count on you. I love that about each and every one of you. We have saved many lives this year, touched the lives of some tremendous people and their families. Each day, each one of us make a big difference. I am living my dream, to save the most innocent of lives, give them a second chance, and a reason to purr and wag their tails. I hope each of you also find joy, and satisfaction in what we have accomplished together over the years.

I want to take this time to wish all of you and your family the Happiest of Holidays, and a super New Year. We look forward to Yappy Hour at Meadow Mill Athletic Club on Jan 3. The foster gifts collected, will be distributed. A huge thank you to Krista and her Mom of MMAC, for allowing MAS Rescue to have our "Donation Tree" their facility.

Keep an eye on the website for new additions, fan us on facebook if you haven't already, and I am on Twitter now...(trying to get the hang of it.) haha

Best Wishes, stay safe, Big Hugs!

Mary Snyder
Director of MAS Rescue

December 2011 - GIRLS ON THE RUN

Folger McKinsey Elementary School's Girls on the Run who chose MAS Rescue as their community service project and collected wonderful donations of things and money. What a fabulous group of gals and what a terrific thing they did! Thank you!!

November 2011 - A BIG BIG THANK YOU
Last month I announced the Birthday of our wonderful adoption coordinator, Jennifer Haber. Each year she unselfishly requests that gifts for her, be donated in her name for the benefit of MAS Rescue. Pretty cool, right??

Well, this year, her brother gave MAS Rescue a gift that was absolutely priceless... he was able to financially afford to pay off all our medical bills. YES ... it is amazing!!! I was totally overwhelmed, I was brought to a babbling, bumbling, sobbing mess as I found out, and then shared the news with Jennifer. What a blessing!!!

Obviously, people who give so unselfishly of themselves do not look for notoriety... but I could not let this go unnoticed or underappreciated. This burden was a huge weight that has been lifted from me, by two lovely people. Mere words are not enough to express my complete gratitude. I know everyone in this organization will be just as amazed, and thankful to know that our animals will continue to be looked after by our vets, without the pressure of a looming bill hanging over our heads. I am forever humbled and thankful to everyone who helps me to save innocent lives.

Love you...... Mary
