July 21, 2021 Fundraiser Update

Starts today! 40th Anniversary fundraiser…40 years, 40 days, $40 donation to $40K goal and donor match!


Marquesa finally gets a home!

Marquesa arrived at Born Free over 6 years ago. We fed her, took her to the vet, loved her, and waited for her forever family to find her, wondering why such a sweet, gentle dog was passed over time and time again. Last month we spent over $1,100 removing a large mass from her neck. Then it happened, Libby came to the shelter and immediately fell in love with Marquesa! Born Free never gives up on a dog, no matter how long it takes.

Please donate during our 40th Anniversary fundraiser and your donation will be doubled! Special thanks to the Mark and Carol Zemmel Fund,

which has offered a generous dollar for dollar match for every donation up to $40,000.

— All donations are tax deductible. —

Our final stretch is here!       Only 10 days left to claim the dollar for dollar match from the Mark and Carol Zemmel Fund. Let’s get as close to our goal as possible. If you have not donated yet, please donate today.

Every donation helps and is matched!

Julie has been volunteering with Born Free for two years. Julie accompanies other volunteers on outdoor adventures, vet visits, and other excursions to socialize the dogs. She also lends a hand with the newsletters and our Petfinder listings. On her second day volunteering, Julie took home a small dog to foster that she ended up falling in love with and adopting. When not helping out at Born Free, Julie volunteers helping homeless cats. Thank you, Julie, we appreciate all you do.

Born Free Pet Shelter just spent $4,000 on dog food. Master Pet Nutrition who recently gave us 500 pounds of dog food, has generously offered to give 1

FREE bag of dog food FOR EVERY 3 bags purchased when you select Born Free during checkout. Support those that support us!
