Welcome to Born Free Pet Shelter

Born Free Pet Shelter is a No Kill 501(c)(3) Non-Profit RESCUE organization that has been helping homeless dogs since 1981. Born Free is a rescue that is dedicated to providing our dogs with a happy and healthy quality of life while they await their opportunity to a permanent and loving home.  In some cases, Born Free is home and serves as a sanctuary to those dogs that do not have the fortune of getting adopted.

New Challenge Grant

Good Afternoon, Everyone.  Once again I am sponsoring a challenge grant to benefit Born Free Pet Shelter.  The attached letter can be used to email to anyone you think may support the BFPS mission.  Last year we raised over $7,000 toward this challenge which meant BFPS received over $12,000.  The grant is dollar for dollar which mean that for every dollar raised between now, October 22nd, and the end of December, another dollar will be donated up to $5,000.

As you all know, BFPS operates at a deficit and needs every dollar we can raise.  Our annual gala is not until February 7th.  Anything we can do in the meantime to support the shelter is greatly needed and appreciated.  Please give me a call or email if you have any questions.  305-372-5191.  I look forward to working with all of you this year to raise even more funds for the shelter.  All ideas welcomed!

P.S. Please note that all money gets sent to Julie for accounting purposes.  Julie will make sure it gets to Alicia and BFPS.  THANK YOU!

We are not funded by the government and for this reason our vet and food bills are very high.  We depend largely on monetary contributions from individuals who believe in our mission.
