Give Miami Day 2018
Save the date! The shelter will again be participating in the Miami Foundation’s Give Miami Day on November 15, 2018. Last year we raised slightly over $14,000 to help shelter and feed our dogs. This year we would like to increase that number to $20,000. With your support, we can do it!
This year the shelter is still enduring the effects of Hurricane Irma. Although the shelter is now free of debris and operating normally, we are still in the rebuilding process. Twenty new dog houses are needed and additional landscaping and fencing. We feel very fortunate that all our dogs survived and are back to living normal shelter lives.
We will again have an anonymous donor match every dollar donated. This year the match will be up to $10,000.
2018 Second Chance Dinner & Silent Auction
Thank you to all our supporters for making this year’s fundraiser such a great success, raising more funds than we’ve ever raised in the past. Much needed funds will be used to continue shelter operations, but also to replace dog houses, pens, and landscaping, etc. damaged by Hurricane Irma. Alicia Aballi, the founder and President of Born Free Pet Shelter, Inc., sincerely thanks all who were in attendance and all who sent in donations for contributing to the success of the fundraiser.
