What is the Purpose of The Missy Foundation?

“Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.”
- Pythagorus circa 570 - 500 B.C.


Miami Herald
Reporter John Dorschner stated very simply in his article “See Spot Die”, the following:

There are a hundred million dogs and cats in America. We cuddle them, talk to them, make them part of the family. Every year we buy them five billion dollars worth of food, not to mention collars, bowls, flea spray, vaccinations, and little, pink sweaters. We love our pets. Except, of course, when we have to move, or get tired of walking them, or sick of paying the vet bills. Then we abandon them. By the millions. We tell ourselves they’ll find a new home, but the truth is, when we drop them off at the animal shelter, we drop them off to die. Man’s best friend has become man’s biggest victim.

Throughout North America, the companion animal population is still, today, plagued by massive overpopulation. This is in spite of continuing educational campaigns promoting early spaying and neutering of all companion animals.
As a result, the resources and manpower of the many shelters and humane societies are being severely strained.

In the vast majority of cases, such shelters have reached the breaking point. Then, of course, the unthinkable occurs. They become killing centres. Over 45,000 cats and dogs are “euthanized”, or killed every day, 365 days a year. To put it bluntly, between 15-20 million companion animals are killed, each year, in the United States alone. More than 1/3 of North America’s 52 million dogs, and 56 million cats, are homeless. In addition, 4 out of 5 companion animals are abandoned each year. These are very frightening statistics.

The aim of the Missy Foundation is to make a difference in the lives of such animals in the belief that every living entity has the right to warm shelter and good food, but, most importantly, they have the right to be wanted and loved.

We launch this non-profit endeavour, the Missy Foundation, so that our Missy Angel may be remembered in the name of a truly noble cause.

Your help, given in honour and memory of your special Angel, is so very important. We are the Voice of the Voiceless. We must help those who cannot help themselves. This is your chance to really make a difference in perpetuity.

 

Remember:
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”- Aesop

We are the Voice of the Voiceless.
We must help those who cannot help themselves.

This is your chance to really make a visible difference in perpetuity.
