Our second charity is Mazie’s Mission, a 501(c)3 non-profit rescuing pets from shelters, hoarders and puppy mills. Mazie’s Mission was formed to bring a self-sustaining, focused approach to animal welfare with the purpose of eliminating unnecessary euthanasia. This will be accomplished by providing professional medical care, expert forensic evidence and adoption assistance to shelters, rescue groups, first responders and other non-profit animal welfare groups. The ultimate goal of Mazie’s Mission is to establish a world class veterinary hospital and rehabilitation center.
