The best place to find your true love this Valentine’s Day is at your local animal shelter! There are an estimated 5-7 million dogs and cats that enter animal shelters nationwide every year, looking for their forever homes. While rescue organizations try their best to provide support to animals in need, they often need support of their own. That’s why Matrix Partners is devoted to donating time and money to help make these shelters hearts a little lighter.

As a company who is, “Passionate About Pets”, we’re fortunate enough to work in an industry that allows us to do what we love. We also admire that many of our clients and pet industry friends hold animal rescues close to their hearts.

As proud members of the pet rescue community, over the last year, MP team members have:

  Attended or coordinated 50+ animal rescue fundraising events, adoption days and TV segments to help find pet’s homes.

  Spent $950+ on items to benefit rescues including wine, numerous t-shirts, hats, jackets, Tito’s Vodka, and even holiday wreaths and cards.

  Donated $3,700+ to numerous rescues including: Midwest Lab Rescue, Chicago Canine Rescue, Elkhart Humane Society, TLC Animal Shelter – Matrix also donated to Chicago Canine Rescue for our holiday gift this year in our client’s honor.

  Donated more than 150+ food, toy and treat items to local animal rescues.

  Supported our clients when they offered monetary and product donations – totaling OVER $447,840 to rescues across the country.

  Dedicated 525+ hours to local rescue organizations planning events, promoting via PR and social media, supporting fundraising efforts and participating in and attending events.

  Of our MP team members, we proudly have 2 that currently sit on the board of their favorite animal rescue organizations.

  The MP team has 14 furry family members that have been rescued from wonderful organizations like TLC Animal Shelter in Homer Glen, The Naperville Humane Society, Elkhart Humane Society, Brew Beagle Rescue and more.

Rescue pets have stolen our hearts and have made our lives, our jobs and our volunteer work that much more enjoyable. There are many ways you can make a difference in a rescue animal’s life. We hope to continue spreading the rescue message to our family, friends and clients while helping save the lives of many more rescue pets. And to our friends on the frontline in the animal rescue community, we salute you and thank you for advocating for woman’s (and man’s) best friend.

So, get out there and find you true love today, at your local animal shelter!
