Every dollar given to our cause goes to make a better life for our animals. Whether it be food, habitats, a new roof, or simply the heating bill, your generous donation will be used wisely. Thank You!
Animal Adventures is New England's largest, privately owned animal rescue center of its kind! We have been operating in Bolton, Massachusetts since 1997. We are a rescue center first. We take in hundreds of unwanted, or unable to be cared for, animals each year. Some, we are able to find homes for, and others will live here the rest of their lives. We receive zero state or federal funding and are 100% self sufficient. We are state and USDA licensed to keep all of our animals. We follow strict care guidelines and each animal's needs are met on a daily basis. Because we are not AZA all of our funding comes from you! Whether that be by visiting our center or having us at your party, all the money we makes comes from the work we do. Furthermore, we are not a 501(c)(3), and are not planning to be. We feel we can offer better services, and do more for our animals and our employees, by standing as a small business. Outside of the services we offer, any donations received are a huge help and we say Thank You to those that give regularly. Please take a few minutes to browse our site and see what we have to offer you!
Calling Animal Adventures Friends!
Animal Adventures has been educating families for 20 years in Massachusetts, and we love it here. Our own family resides here and the Rescue Center employs over 25 people in the summer, provides numerous opportunities for special needs volunteers, youth internships, adaptive program visitation and grade school education for multiple districts.
Our business is at risk, right now, because of a new bill introduced to the State Senate.
Bill S.490 would greatly impact the educational resources that Animal Adventures provides, as well as dramatically affect the vital funds needed to support a rescue center with a daily operational cost of over $2000.
A detail of the proposed Bill S.490 can be found here - http://buff.ly/2nphKcb
More details will follow, but we ask that you reach out to your local representative to let them know that you love Animal Adventures and that you oppose Bill S.490. Your voice can make a difference and is an appreciated way to “donate” to the Rescue Center.
You can find our petition to have this bill stopped here: https://www.change.org/p/massachusetts-state-representatives-ma-representatives-to-vote-no-to-bill-s-490
