Maine Animal Coalition is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed under the law.
Your Choose the Amount:
Donations can also be made to Maine Animal Coalition through MaineShare (www.maineshare.org).
MaineShare supports a community of 37 non-profit member organizations through workplace giving and direct gifts. MaineShare's mission is to provide significant support to organizations doing progressive social justice and root cause work in Maine and to raise public awareness of their work.
Workplace giving means that employees make tax-deductible gifts to charitable organizations of their choice, primarily through payroll contributions. MaineShare workplace giving campaigns are "donor driven" - donors may designate all or part of their contributions to specific member organizations. You choose how to distribute your gift on your pledge form. MaineShare gives employees in the workplace an easy and efficient way to give a few dollars a week from their paycheck to support groups working in and for Maine every day. Workplace giving enables a workplace and its employees to work together to benefit the community by helping to fund and develop root cause solutions through MaineShare member groups.
MaineShare comes to your workplace once a year and you decide how much to give and who you want to receive your gift. Donors can give anonymously, or choose to receive an acknowledgement from designated member groups.
If your workplace does not currently offer MaineShare as a charitable giving option, encourage your employer to enroll. For more information, contact MaineShare at 282 Water Street, Suite 12, P.O.Box 2095, Augusta, Maine 04338. Phone 207-622-0105.
Private Pet Cremation now Available
A Litchfield couple, who lost their beloved dog Fluke in May 2003, has opened a private crematory to offer its assistance to other pet owners who have suffered a loss. The idea was born after the couple's experience with cremation services and their deceased dog's five day "storage period" in a chest freezer left them upset and dissatified with the options available for pet owners at such a traumatic time.
Care and Dignity Even in Death
Until recently, pet owners have had little choice as to their involvement in their pet's care when their furry family member have passed. Fluke's Aftercare welcomes this involvement with their pet cremation services. This will not only help in the grieving process but provides the pet owner the assurance that the ashes they receive are those and only those of their pet.
Owners who contact them directly will be offered a variety of choices to help make what can be a most emotional time a bit easier to bear. Upon arriving, you will be given a description of what to expect in regards to the retort itself. A retort is the proper name for the unit used to cremate the pet. Owners are then offered the opportunity to be as little or as much involved as they would like. They may witness the pet's placement into the retort to assure that their pet is indeed the only pet being cremated. The cremation process varies in time as it is dependant upon the size of the pet. The larger the pet, the longer it will take. Three hours is usually the average from start to completion of the process. Owners can choose to stay throughout the process or simply return at a specified time to pick up their pets ashes. Fluke's Aftercare will also pick up the pet and/or deliver the ashes to the pet owner's home.
Their appreciation and love of pets is the reason for their business. They can be reached toll-free at 1-877-268-2912 or visit Fluke's Aftercare.
Fluke's Aftercare will donate 10% of the cost of your services to Maine Animal Coalition if you let them know that you learned about Fluke's from our website.
