Helping Animals and the People who Love and Care for Them
Making A Difference Now (MADN) is a Lexington KY-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to help animals and the people and organizations that love and care for them; to support other organizations with similar goals; and to advocate for animals everywhere.
Why is it important to help homeless, abandoned, and feral animals?
This cat was rescued near a college campus with a new litter of 5 kittens.
Best Friends Animal Society, a highly regarded national organization, estimates that 2200 healthy, adoptable cats and dogs, who would make loving pets, die in US shelters every day simply because no homes are available for them. WE CAN CHANGE THIS!
TNR, return-to-field, and caregiving teams for community cats; low cost spay/neuter for unowned animals and for animals whose families do not have the resources to pay for their surgery; help with medical bills so loving families can stay together and the pets can get the care they need; and much greater emphasis on recruiting and training foster and adoptive families - these are immediate needs that MADN addresses and that we can all help meet.
Making A Difference Now (MADN) is a Lexington KY-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to help animals and the people who love and care for them. Incorporated in 2009, we have been helping animals and people ever since.
What can I do to help?
Be a responsible pet owner and spay/neuter all your pets!!
When you or someone you know is ready to adopt a new family member, make adoption from a shelter or rescue organization the first choice. For people who want a purebred dog, the HSUS estimates that 25% of the dogs in shelters are purebred dogs!
Educate yourself and support efforts to educate others about the critical issues of pet overpopulation, and the importance of spay/neuter and shelter adoptions.
Regularly donate and/or volunteer to help community shelters and nonprofit organizations working to improve life for the animals in your community. Many more veterinarians are needed to provide low cost/no cost spay/neuter services and medical care. Volunteers are needed to serve as foster families for cats and dogs, caretakers for feral cat colonies, shelter and rescue volunteers, and to raise funds for low cost medical care and spay/neuter efforts.
If your skills and interests are less about direct services but you’d love to help, we always need computer and tech skills, help with public education through traditional and social media, event planning, fundraising, and training skills. In fact, if you have no idea how or what you would like to do, but you love animals and would like to talk about it, we’d love to talk with you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
