HAPPY SHELTER AWARENESS MONTH!!!
First & Foremost: Sorry for the blurry pictures everyone… they are screen shots of the PAWSOME YouTube video documenting our trip to the Washington County Animal Shelter.
Mulligan Movement apparel is sold at Belle Boutique, where 100% of the proceeds are donated to local animal shelters to help provide health care needs.
For new readers, when Mulligan was adopted he had several health issues that had to be treated and this brought to my attention the medical funding, or lack there of, in shelters. This is what inspired Mulligan Movement & why the funds go where they go!
On August 22 Mulligan & I met Brittany, the owner of Belle Boutique, at the Washington County Animal Shelter to make a donation. This shelter had recently been going through some issues with their budget.
As soon as I heard about the issues with the budget, I contacted Brittany and we decided this would be the perfect time to donate Mulligan Movement apparel money to the shelter. We wanted to not only make sure they had money to cover necessary medical expenses, but also let the shelter know that the community stood behind them.
I called the shelter to discuss what was going on, tell them we wanted to donate a $1,000, where it was coming from, what the $1,000 had to spent on, and make sure it was ok to bring several people as well as a photographer / videographer to document the donation! We got the green light & on Saturday, August 22, 2015 we all met at the shelter to make it happen!
The reason I wanted the donation documented was so that not only people who have participated in the Mulligan Movement could see the impact they have made, but so that others in the community could see what the Mulligan Movement is all about.
This is Ava, 9 years old, and has followed Mulligan since the beginning! Ava joined us at the shelter to make a very special donation of her own. Ava did a lemonade stand at a garage sale that morning & wanted to donate her money to the Washington County Animal Shelter as well!
While Ava was visiting the shelter she fell in love with Rico. When Ava made her donation she asked that it cover the adoption fee for Rico. This made him free to an approved home & he has since been adopted! THANK YOU AVA FOR BEING PAWSOME & SETTING A GREAT EXAMPLE!
When we make a donation with Mulligan Movement funds, we require the shelter to give us an invoice for the medical supplies the money was spent on! This is to insure that the funds were used correctly & also so that I can show you exactly where the money went. After all, its your money & I want to uphold the integrity behind what we do. I am so happy to show all of you where YOUR money went and the difference WE MADE TOGETHER!
Here is the first invoice that details what donation money was used on. Let me break it down into English because none of us speak Vet! Unless of course you are a vet… or science person…
1)Pyrantel Pamoate: This is a deworming agent used to treat hookworm & roundworms.
2)Azithromycin: This is used to treat bacterial infections.
3)Enercal: A vitamin & energy supplement for dogs & cats.
4)Doxycycline: Treats infections caused by bacteria. Typically used to treat Lyme disease.
5)Advita: Probiotic used to help with bowel function and general health (this one was specifically for felines)
6) Neo-Poly-Dex: Prescription eye medication to treat bacterial infections in eyes or on the eye lid.
7) Otomite: Medication used to treat ear infections.
