Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement:

The Mosby Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, to assist in the care of critically sick, injured, abused and neglected dogs through financial support and public education.

To insure Mosby's legacy of kindness and compassion to all he met endures, Carole Adams set up "The Mosby Foundation." The purpose of the foundation is to raise money by donations and contributions to give dogs the second chance in life that Mosby was given.

Description

The Mosby Foundation has been established in loving memory of Mosby,
a Malamute - Husky mix who was intentionally shot and killed on August 8, 2003.
His memory will live forever in our hearts.
The Mosby Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, to assist in the care of critically ill, injured, abused and neglected dogs through financial support of veterinary care and public education. Our primary goal is to prevent "economic euthanasia." From January 1-July 15, 2013, we have contributed to the medical care of 153 dogs. We have created a program to stock a local food pantry with pet food for low-income families. This is designed to help prevent dogs being surrendered to shelters simply because the families cannot afford to feed them. From January 1, 2013-July 15, 2013, we have distributed 89,320 pounds of pet food. In addition to the food pantry, this food has been distributed to various animal rescues/shelters in Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia. This food comes to us from the national Rescue Bank, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Walmart, and donations from local veterinarian offices, grocery stores and individual donors. These donations of food have freed up funds to be spent on our primary mission of medical assistance for dogs in need. Through our spay/neuter assistance program, from January 1, 2013-July 15, 2013, we have altered 315 dogs, an increase from last year’s total number of 450 dogs spayed or neutered.
