The MPA Fund Needs Your Help

We are asking those able to contribute to our MPA Fund to help us raise $2,500.00. Between today 27 May 2016 and 14 June 2016 (Flag Day) midnight central time. We are asking help to keep this program going and all donations received during this period will be allocated to the MPA fund.
As of yesterday we have disbursed $3,500 from the MPA fund since 1 January 2016 and after today will be below $1,500 in the fund and we are working on 3 other cases not including the one that came in this morning helping another Homeless Veteran with this furbaby Rufio (veterinarian expense and temp boarding up to 3 weeks) in MO.
If you can help please visit this link to learn more on how to contribute between 27 May 2016 and midnight (Central Time) on 14 June 2016 (Flag Day).
Please share with others to keep this program going for Veterans facing major inpatient medical issues and our Homeless Veterans with companion animals.
Our sincere thanks and appreciation for your support now and in the future.
Respectfully,
Linda Spurlin-Dominik
CEO
