My Favorite Charity Needs Support

IMOM (In Memory of Magic) is a fantastic organization, for which I do volunteer work. We raise money to help provide emergency care for sick and injured pets with life threatening conditions, whose owners cannot provide it themselves.

Helping people help pets“. To better the lives of sick, injured and abused companion animals. We are dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged.

IMOM was founded in 1998, and as of the end of 2010 we had raised and paid directly to veterinarians over 1.4 million dollars. This provided emergency treatments for thousands of dogs, cats, horses, birds, and other companion animals. I expect that when the 2011 year-end accounting is complete, that impressive number will go way up.

2011 was very busy for us. In the month of December alone, we paid approximately $20,000 for emergency treatments. And over $10,000 of that came from our General Fund, not from fundraisers for individual pets. That’s because there just wasn’t time to raise money. The pets were dying and we had to act fast, by dipping into our very modest reserves. Now that fund needs help, so we can do it the next time we have a pet in crisis.

So we’re having a fundraiser and looking for help. Please click here to access our current fundraiser, and help IMOM continue this important work.

Meet one of our Pets in Need

Back in December, we worked on a case for a German Shepard puppy named Foru. With a $3000 gift from IMOM, he had major surgery for urinary obstruction and infection. Look at him today!

IMOM has no paid staff members. Eleven of us run the organization, all volunteers, working from our homes across the country.

I can personally vouch for IMOM’s legitimacy in every way, because I have served on the board of directors since 1999.

Thank you!
