5th Annual HayDay Event
Our 5th Annual HayDay Event is on Saturday, December 7, 2013! Volunteers will deliver free hay/straw, dog houses, dog coats and other comforting supplies to neglected, chained and penned dogs in Nashville to help them through the cold winter months.
We also educate owners to the dangers of leaving pets outside all year round and strive to enter into an ongoing dialog with them in an effort to permanently improve the lives of these pets.
You can help in the following ways:
- Donate your time - e-mail us to volunteer. You can also send info on dogs in need to this address.
- Donate supplies - you can use the above link to donate supplies directly OR see our wish list on Amazon! You'll find everything we need right there!
- Donate cash or gift cards - conact us at the link above if you'd like to donate a gift card from PetSmart, Home Depot, or Lowes. You can also donate cash through our WePay campaign by visiting our page on their site or using this button: Donate
- Spread the word - download the HayDay poster and put it up wherever you can (Thanks to Jen Kilgore for another beautiful design!)
This year, our friends at The Wild Cow Vegetarian Restaurant in Nashville will be giving a $10.00 gift card to everyone who donates $40.00 or more in supplies from our Amazon Wishlist! Just forward a copy of your receipt to us at giftcard [at] mtprc [dot] org and the Wild Cow will send it directly to you! A BIG THANKS to Melanie Bhagat Cochran for this generous contribution!
