MHS Pawliday Match Challenge

Dear Friends,

I am ecstatic to share that we have exceeded our goal by over 50%!! Thanks to the generosity of everyone who donated. These funds are a critical component of allowing MHS to continue to save 100s of animal lives in 2022 and find them their furever homes!!

In 2021, over 350 animals have come through the doors of The Meriden Humane Society. Some lost, neglected or just forgotten. Some needing medical attention, all scared and unsure about what their future would hold. Through the work of staff, volunteers, and generous donors like you, all of them found the love and care that our mission is committed to offering. I am excited to say that over 330 of them are already in their furever homes and will never again know the fear and uncertainty of their future.


As you know 2020/2021 has been hard years for animal shelters. While the world is struggling around us, our mission does not stop; if anything it is more important than ever. Through the generosity of our community, we have made great strides to improve our commitment to rescue; healing and finding furever homes for the animals that depend on us as well as updating our facilities to enrich their lives.

Our commitment to their medical care and enrichment while with us does not stop. As of the end of the third quarter in 2021, we have spent over $100,000 on medical care including prescriptions, lab tests, medical supplies and spay/neuter procedures.


To continue to support our mission in the coming year, this Giving Tuesday The Meriden Humane Society is launching the Pawliday Match Challenge. Our goal is from Giving Tuesday (11-30-2021) to December 31st (12-31-2021) to raise $20,000 to support all aspects of our mission such as operating expenses, emergency medical care, and enrichment.

Thanks to a commitment from some of our most generous donors, each dollar of the first $9,000 raised will be matched. Please consider giving to The Meriden Humane Society this holiday season. Every dollar helps us save and place another animal in their furever home.

There are lots of way to donate, either through our Facebook fundraiser, through our Paypal or via check mailed to our office in Meriden CT. If donating via Paypal or check please note "MHS Pawliday Match Challenge" so that we can track the progress toward our goal.
