A message from Don Hanson, co-owner of Green Acres Kennel Shop.
Animals are abused in a staggering 88% of families where violence is an issue. 65% of pet owners in an abusive relationship stay in danger longer because of fear for their pet’s safety. Some have even lost their lives.
Green Acres is trying to change that with our fundraiser for BARKK to End the Silence.
Since June 1st we’ve raised $500, matched it with $500 from Green Acres and are now working towards $3000. If you donate another $1500 by July 5th, we’ll donate another $500.
You can donate in person at Green Acres at 1653 Union Street or by going online to green acres kennel dot com backslash cash for your cause - http://www.greenacreskennel.com/cashforyourcause
Domestic abuse is a growing issue in Maine. Please join with me and the 234 Mainers that have already contributed $1900 to this life-saving cause. Funds raised will benefit all Mainers. Thank You!
Updates on the progress of the fundraiser are posted daily on the Green Acres Kennel Shop Facebook page. - https://www.facebook.com/GreenAcresKennelShop
