Marshall County Animal Advocates are seeking donations this Tuesday

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Marshall County Animal Advocates (MCAA) needs your help this Donation Tuesday. The non-profit organization is looking for donations, which will help them continue to serve pets and their owners.

The non-profit pet care organization is looking to raise $16,000 this Tuesday.

MCAA Executive Director Kay Johnson says this week’s Global Giving Day is about people giving back

“I mean Giving Tuesday is about giving outside of yourself, doing something for someone else! The donations we receive on Giving Tuesday will go 100% to veterinary care for emergencies or to help people get their pets neutered,” she said.

Johnson says there are plenty of good pet parents out there, struggling with their finances.

“Some of them are due to COVID issues, work related issues… It happens during the holidays and money is just tight. We are asking for monetary donations because that is our greatest need right now. We don’t really have a way for people to volunteer their time,” added the director.

The nonprofit was established in June 2020. Since then, Johnson says they’ve helped hundreds of animals.

“Part of the beauty of giving to Marshall County Animal Advocates…you don’t even have to really like animals!” A lot of it is to help people who love their pets,” Johnson replied.

Whether it’s the MCAA or another nonprofit, Johnson hopes people will give generously this year.

“As long as you give yourself one way or another. It can be financial, your time, your voice for a cause. All of us, whatever cause you care about – we give beyond what benefits us because it’s the only way to make something better,” Johnson added.

If you would like to make a donation, you can visit the association’s Facebook page.
