We know that on “Giving Tuesday” everyone receives many requests for donations. When I get my mail, I always feel bad about not donating to all the worthy causes that need money, but of course, that’s impossible unless you’re quite rich. So we will just say that we sincerely appreciate all donations and want our supporters to know that the $$ is put to very good use for the animals we rescue. It helps pay for veterinary care, food and supplies while they are in foster care (we do not have a shelter). If you wish to donate, you can do so here on our website (click on “Donate” button) or by sending a check to FOBA, PO Box 3378, Beverly, MA 01915. (You can also purchase our calendar(s) as mentioned in a couple of posts below.)
Thank you for all your support in the past and future. You have helped us create many “happy tails” and “happy tales” — great adopton stories! (by Bonnie Hannable, FOBA Volunteer)
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from all of us at FOBA.

Trivia Night Sept. 17, 2021

September 18, 2021

We had a great fundraiser last night at the Franco-American Club. Turnout was excellent and everyone really enjoyed the trivia games run by our good friend Jim Lucas and the food from Casual Catering (Paul Guanci). There are so many people to thank, especially Jim, Linda and Terry Lucas, and everyone who helped make the event a big success. Thanks to our Treasurer Chris Letterman for sitting at the welcome/ticket table all night! We won’t try to list all the others who went above and beyond, for fear of leaving someone out.

Here’s a photo that Jill Auld took of the plant arrangement made and donated by Sen. Joan B. Lovely (who attended). It was so pretty and creative. And another photo of people at the raffle tables. Huge thanks to everyone who attended, donated raffle items, bought tickets, helped with set-up and take-down, clean-up, etc.

It’s acts of kindness like these that have kept FOBA going, rescuing and finding loving homes for animals for the last 12 years.

HUGE THANK YOUS!! (written by Bonnie Hannable, Volunteer)
