February Virtual Meeting

February 2, 2021

We have scheduled Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 PM for a Zoom FOBA meeting. The link and instructions are below.

Items on the agenda are:  Financial report, rescue and adoption activity, discussion of how to add new members, fundraising during the pandemic, etc. Please let us know if you want to add any items.

We still have some 2021 calendars left and if anyone wants one (free) for yourself or to give to a friend, please let me know. They were $14 in the beginning; about mid-January we reduced the price to $7 each. We will donate some of the leftovers to the senior center shortly. They always seem to appreciate them.

Thanks, please stay warm and stay well,

Bonnie Hannable, Secretary, FOBA

Dear FOBA Family,

We would like to thank you for your kind support of our organization and again wish you a very Happy New Year. Hopefully we’ll have a better one than last year! 
 
As you probably know, the Friends of Beverly Animals has rescued and found loving homes for hundreds of pets since we began in 2007. We could not have done that without your help, and we are extremely grateful to friends like you.
 
Just a little reminder in case you have not gotten a copy of our 2021 calendar…we still have some left and there should be a few in the stores listed below, but we suggest you call first to make sure or contact me directly to get a copy. A couple of stores ran out, but we replenished their supply before Christmas. As usual, the calendars are full of pretty color photos of local and not-so local pets, quite a few of which were FOBA rescues and adoption placements. Funds raised from the sale of calendars help us cover veterinary and other expenses involved in rescuing and placing homeless pets.
Calendars were $14 each, but since it’s almost mid-January, we are reducing the price by half, or $7/each.
They may also be purchased here on our website. If you would like to purchase the calendar online, simply click the Donate button, then enter $7 for each calendar desired, and under Special Instructions type in “Calendar.” Please add $4.00 for the first calendar and $0.75 for each additional calendar to cover postage and envelope.
Questions, write bhannable@gmail.com or call 978-922-7190. It is possible to arrange a pick-up in Beverly and save the shipping charges, please email me for more info.
Note: cash or check only in stores (payable to FOBA)
Beverly Wild Bird & Pet Supply, 214 Rantoul Street, Beverly 978-927-2880 (closed Mondays)
Copper Dog Books (formerly Cabot Street Books), 272 Cabot Street, Beverly 978-969-3460
Dogs by Design & Cats, Too! 131 Dodge Street, Beverly 978-998-7620 (call for hours)
DogSpa, 45 Enon Street, Beverly 978-922-9227
Marika’s Restaurant, 199 Cabot Street, Beverly 978-927-1768 (call for hours)
Sally’s Hair Salon, 138 Dodge Street, Beverly 978-524-9990 (call for hours)
We want to express our sincere gratitude to these kind Beverly merchants and we encourage you to visit and do business with them often!
On behalf of our volunteers and the precious animals we help, thank you very much again for your continued support of our work!
