Saturday’s 13th annual Furry Affair MSPCA-Centerville fundraiser drew a “who’s who” of the close-knit Cape Cod community and pulled in a record $203,000 in donations— funds used to care for hundreds of animals that come into the MSPCA’s Centerville Adoption Center every year before going to permanent, loving homes. Chaired by Maggie DeSantis Ahearn and her husband Kevin, founder of Otis & Ahearn Real Estate, and emceed by former WCVB-TV news anchor Susan Wornick, the Furry Affair was attended by bestselling author Casey Sherman; Bobby Orr, widely regarded as the greatest NHL player in hockey history; celebrated Cape Cod artist Sam Barber; Antiques Roadshow television show regular Leigh Keno, founder and president of Keno Auctions and Keno Art Advisory. The sold-out event took place at the famed Wianno Club in Osterville. To see pictures of the event click here.
Bo, an attractive Retriever-Chow mix, came to us when his family had to move and couldn’t take him along. We noticed that his head was tilting to the side, he was losing his balance, and his eye was twitching involuntarily. Our local veterinarian thought it might be an inner ear problem at first. Then, on a walk in the woods, Bo started swaying and spinning in circles. We rushed him to Angell Animal Medical Center and, after a spinal tap and MRI, we found out that Bo had encephalitis. He was put on medication and we watched him closely. He was also treated for some other issues and put on a special diet. Bo was on the road to recovery, and soon he was adopted!
Every day animals come to us needing costly medical care. We pay for their care from donations collected for our Guardian Angel Fund. Right now that fund is almost completely empty. Click here to make your generous donation to the MSPCA-Cape Cod’s Guardian Angel Fund. Every donation helps! We want to be ready to help every animal who comes through our doors!

Thanks to a generous donor, the Cape Cod adoption center now has a new fund to help animals look their best while they wait to be adopted into their forever homes! Donations will provide grooming and bathing for dogs and cats by Aussie Pet Mobile Grooming. When pets feel and look their best, they are happier and adopted more quickly. Click here to donate! And a big thank you to our donors and Aussie Pet Mobile for making this program possible. See before and after pictures on our facebook page.

Can't adopt? Why not foster! Every summer the adoption center overflows with cats and kittens, and we need your help! Becoming a temporary foster is a wonderful and rewarding way to help a homeless pet in need. The adoption center provides all the necessary supplies and vet care. All you do is care for a pet in your home! Click here to learn more about fostering.
Then become a volunteer! There are many volunteer opportunities, including walking dogs and caring for cats, rabbits and small animals. We are also looking for photographers, special event volunteers, and drivers.
