The Friends of Beverly Animals is seeking pet photos for our 2024 calendar. ***Send to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the words “2024 calendar” in the email subject line.***
Send a favorite photo (no more than three of each pet, please) of dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, any animal you care about, as long as it’s a good, clear and interesting photo. The deadline for submission is August 10.
Selling calendars is one of the ways FOBA raises money to support the rescue and adoption placement work we do; it helps to cover veterinary fees, pet food and supplies. Thank you!!
Here’s the month of June from our 2023 calendar. We will soon be accepting photos for our 2024 calendar, stay tuned for more information!! Thanks to everyone who sent us your great photos last year, the stores who helped sell them for us (Copper Dog Books, DogSpa, DogsByDesign and Cats, Too) and to everyone who purchased calendars. Your support helps us rescue and find loving homes for animals in need.
Thank you to Beverly businesses Copper Dog Books, DogSpa and Dogs by Design (& Cats, Too!) for a great year selling FOBA 2023 calendars. Thank you to those who submitted wonderful photos, and everyone who purchased a calendar. We hope you enjoy them. We can’t thank you enough for your support, which helps us pay for veterinary care, food and supplies while our animals are in foster care…before they move into their new happy homes!
We thought we’d share our latest newsletter on our website so that we can reach more people to let you know what we’ve been up to and what we have in the works… Hope you will find time to read it and thank you so much for your support, on behalf of all the animals we rescue and our volunteers. (We need more, of course!) We would also like to wish you the best for the upcoming holidays and New Year!
Our Trivia Games Night (9/9/22) was just great! We had a very good turnout; Casual Catering’s food was delicious, and we had lots of wonderful raffle and silent auction items! Jim Lucas did a super job — he really knows how to make the games fun. We want to thank everyone involved; Jim, his wife Linda, sister Terry, mom Helen, for all their donations and help setting up the hall.
Thanks to all our members and friends who donated nice prizes; especially to our Treasurer Chris Letterman, who again made all beautiful floral centerpieces for the tables. Also, thanks to Chris and her friend who sat at the welcome table all night; Paul Guanci of Casual Catering & Super Sub (who donated a generous gift card); Sharon Cook (our fun VP) who shared emcee duties with Jim; Neal Flewelling for letting us use his sound system; Joan Matton, Bonnie Currier, and Lisa Vince, who donated and helped in numerous ways; Cheryl Mezack who donated attractive items and acted as our photographer for the event; Nancy Buchanan for her generous prizes; Diane McCarthy for Celtics tickets; the staff/help from the Franco-American Club.
Also thanks to Rep. Jerry Parisella for attending; Sen. Joan Lovely who made and brought a beautiful floral and animal arrangement; Gov. Councilor Eileen Duff who donated several nice prizes. All three are regular supporters of FOBA’s efforts and we appreciate that so much!
Much appreciation to these businesses & organizations: Acapulco’s, Commonwealth Cats, Casual Catering/Super Sub, DogSpa, Ellis Square Friends, Stop ‘n Shop of No. Beverly, Looking Good by Stella, Loyal Companion, the Paul Ramsdell Scholarship Fund, PetCo of Gloucester, Rev Restaurant, Wild Bird Unlimited.
Finally, of course we want to acknowledge and thank all who attended, and FOBA’s visionary President and Founder, Heidi Roberts, who started all of this!
We apologize if anyone has been left out. Please let us know and we’ll fix it!
