Record Attendance at Annual MAC Meeting

At the annual MAC Meeting this past Sunday we set a new record for attendance - EIGHTY FIVE animal welfare organizaton staff and volunteers attended representing 34 MAC Member Groups, non-Member groups, and independent rescuers!

Attendees voted to extend MAC membership to municipal animal shelter agencies, re-elected five stand-out Board Members, cast their ballots in favor of adding one new member to the board - the wonderful, caring, committed editor of Urban Animal, Bob Walton. MAC President Elaine Munch presented an Certificate of Appreciation to outgoing board member and fundraiser extraordinare Becky Haisma, then led guests in group discussions to identify the biggest issues facing animal welfare organizations in the Metroplex.

The 3 hour meeting was hosting by the SPCA of Texas, with refreshments courtesy of Feral Friends an AdoptADallasPet. Door prizes were provided by Contemporary Cats, Remember Me Jewelry, Operation Kindness, Canine Comissary, and a few anonymous donors. Our thanks to all who donated and to the wonderful volunteers who helped make this event so special!
