Rescue Spotlight: Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley

Located in Massachusetts, Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley (ARMV) is a non-profit rescue group staffed by volunteers dedicated to abandoned, stray and unwanted animals in their community.  Their services include low cost spay/neuter programs, adoption resources, foster care for rescued cats and kittens, community education, and caring for feral cats in the towns ARMV serves.  ARMV notes on their website that hundreds of dogs and cats are abandoned each year in their community, so community education and spay/neuter programs are critical in eliminating the number of homeless pets.

If you live in the area, the ARMV website has a list of adoptable cats, and they also have weekly adoption events where you can see the kitties in person. If you find a pet you would like to adopt, complete their online adoption application.  The adoption fee includes spaying or neutering, microchipping, vaccinations, and testing for FeLV and FIV.

If you are not able to adopt a cat or kitten, there are other ways you can help. ARMV is grateful for your tax-deductible monetary donation which goes to help provide animal care, medical care and community education. You can also donate necessary supplies such as cat food, cat litter, and cleaning supplies. PetMeds was proud to help support Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley with a donation of pet supplies.

This has prepared her for her most challenging role to date: secretary, photographer, social coordinator and treat dispenser for Daisy, and Daisy’s sidekick Harley. Daisy is a dilute calico Devon Rex cat, and Harley is a “cow-cat” who was adopted from the shelter where Abby volunteered. You can also find Abby on Google+
