MECA's Angels for Animals

Dec. 3, 2013


Will MECA’S Angels for Animals Unite This Year?

The Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals is asking for Help This Holiday Season Teaming up with Wisconsin Humane Society, HAWS in Waukesha, MADACC and Elmbrook Humane Society to Encourage Holiday Kindness for Homeless Animals

Milwaukee, WI (December 2, 2013) - With the holidays fast approaching, Veterinarian Specialist, Dr. Marla Lichtenberger owner of The Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals is already thinking about those who will be less fortunate this time of year.

While she donates much of her free time raising money to help protect Police K-9 heroes by way of her recently formed foundation, today Dr. Lichtenberger continues to underscore her passion and love for animals with the launch of her new campaign
called MECA's Angels for Animals Holiday Tree Giving sponsored by MECA and
Animal Fairy Charities.

The public is encouraged to visit The Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals (MECA) or any of the participating animal shelters from December 1st
through December 31st to choose a special ornament from the Angels for Animals Holiday Tree. Ornaments can be purchased for $20.00 each with all proceeds going to the individual shelter where that specific ornament was created. Best of all, each ornament will also include a wish list item for those who wish to do more.

“This campaign is very special,” said Dr. Lichtenberger. “We've teamed up with the
largest animal shelters in Southeastern Wisconsin in effort to raise awareness as well as donations for the thousands of homeless pets who will remain in shelters during the holidays,” she added.

Participating shelters include the Wisconsin Humane Society, The Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) in Waukesha, Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) and The Elmbrook Humane Society. Each organization will feature their own Angels for Animals Holiday Tree with ornaments crafted by shelter
volunteers.

"We are hoping this campaign will inspire more people to show kindness and empathy toward animals during the Holidays by getting involved," Said Dr. Lichtenberger. It's also an excellent time of year and a perfect way to teach children a lesson in compassion through the positive interaction with animals,” Lichtenberger added.
