Why Donate to MFOA

We all have many worthy causes to which we can make charitable contributions. We would like to make our case for why your donation to Maine Friends of Animals (MFOA) is an excellent “investment” and use of your money. Our twenty-five years of history demonstrates how and why we have become the state’s leading animal protection organization. What it does not show is what we have accomplished on a surprisingly modest budget. Given that level of funding while reviewing the activity on our ‘History / Timeline’ page, a very strong case can be made for a “good bang for your buck.” Yes, it is a business analogy, but like a business, MFOA functions at its best when there is strong, supportive funding.          

We are in the serious “business” of reducing and ending animal abuse and suffering in Maine. When you consider where to place your charitable dollars, please consider a donation to MFOA as an investment in an organization that has already shown a capacity of accomplishing much with limited resources.

Whether revamping the State Animal Welfare Program, addressing the cruelty of coyote killing programs and the treatment of circus elephants, leading a statewide referendum to ban the hunting of Maine black bears with the use of bait, hounds and traps, orchestrating significant campaigns on canned hunting, puppy mills, wildlife trapping, ‘dogs chained for life’, horse racing/slaughter or the eleven separate successful pieces of legislation that have improved the lives of Maine’s dogs and cats, MFOA has led the way in Maine. Never easy, but tirelessly speaking up for animals.

With 25 years of legislative action and a flurry of recent successful bills, the pre-eminent national animal law organization, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, has named Maine #1 in the nation for its animal welfare laws, for three years in a row! MFOA in the process has become a model for a state animal protection organization. 

We are driven by a very committted and active Board of Directors and staff. We are experienced, organized, battle-tested, and prepared to move to the next level. So when you make your next charitable donation, we hope you will consider Maine Friends of Animals as an excellent investment. If you like what we have done in the last 25 years, then imagine what we could do with increased funding.
