SPIN wrote a grant to petfinder.com and received the generator for use in setting up an emergency shelter for pets. To get involved with your local pet friendly shelter team contact your local Animal Control Officer or visit www.smart-mass.org There you will find links to online training for people responding to disasters to help animals.

June Pet Fair was held at Congregational church in Natick. SPIN set up an informational table and raised money by selling hand crafted items made by our volunteers.

The Craft Fair & Flea Market was held outside Pet World in June. The sun was out for us this day. We thank all the vendors who came and the volunteers who pitched in as well as the shoppers. It was a successful fund raising event for SPIN and we are already planning for a 2nd craft fair for 2010.

We want to be more proactive in reaching out to volunteers. We need one or two people to help manage the volunteer list, contact new volunteers and reach out to get volunteers involved in areas they are interested in and to be more involved with events and other SPIN projects. This should be someone with time to make direct contact by phone as well as email. contact¬† [email protected] ¬†for more details
