Dear Ann & the My Sister’s Closet Staff,
On behalf of Friends of Animal Care & Control and the animals of Maricopa County, we would like to thank you for the generous support you have given us over the years. In the past 12 months, the donations we have received from My Sister’s Closet have resulted in over $183,502 in sales for our non-profit organization.
The money that is raised from our thrift store goes to support the life-saving spay/neuter voucher program here in Maricopa County. In 2006 Maricopa County saw over 105,000 dogs and cats come through the shelter system; sadly less than half were adopted into loving homes. This spurred Friends of Animal Care & Control and Maricopa County Animal Care & Control to form the Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) for low-income families and their companion animals. In the 6 years since its inception Friends of Animal Care & Control has donated over 4.1 million dollars to the SNAP voucher program, resulting in a 21.4% decrease in the number of dogs and cats entering the shelters here in Maricopa County.
Thank you again My Sister’s Closet and your clients, our support of the SNAP voucher program and the resulting decrease in homeless animals would not be possible without you.
