Beautiful shout-out from Wynonna to Sweetpea

We ended 2020 with this beautiful Christmas message from Wynonna, and we’re charging forward with hopes of reopening some of the spaces in the office/kennel building. This will allow us to formally open and handle even a few animals. Practically all grants are available only to shelters that are open and running, so are nor available to us yet.

If your browser has trouble playing Wynonna’s video from our site, you can also watch it on Facebook from this direct link.

Big Y Foods Donates $5000 to Sweetpea from the Annual Paul & Gerald D’Amour Memorial Charity Golf Outing

A huge THANK YOU to Big Y Foods, Inc. They donated $5000 from their 38th Annual Paul & Gerald D’Amour Memorial Charity Golf Outing to Sweetpea!

It’s a big boost to our building fund, which will get us quite a way towards reopening. The photo shows Mary and Dick Clark being presented with the donation by Holden Big Y Store Director, Karen Sultan!

Sweetpea is extremely pleased to announce that we have received a $5000 grant from Greater Worcester Community Foundation, Inc./Rosemary Davis Memorial Fund “to aid in the costs necessary to rebuild and open.”

We are very thankful for this grant and will be using it to help complete the shelter rebuild. Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation, we are now a lot nearer reopening!
