A message of gratitude from our CEO

Posted on Wednesday, November 25, 2020

Your support means the world to us—and it is lifesaving to vulnerable animals. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our important work in both our Robins-Starr Humane Center and low-cost, full-service Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital possible. With your help, we are delivering our mission to thousands of precious pets and the people who love them across our community.

This Thanksgiving looks very different from prior years’ celebrations, and we hold our beloved animals, who have been among our most devoted companions throughout this pandemic, especially close.

Our team is busy coming to the rescue of dogs, cats, kittens and puppies who need us, delivering them crucial medical care, and preparing them for adoption. Thanks to you, these wonderful pets will soon be enjoying the holiday season surrounded by the love of new families.

Together, we make remarkable partners in lifesaving, and we are deeply grateful to you for your enduring support. We wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season.

With gratitude,


Tamsen Kingry and Maggie (dog)
