Letter of thanks for Music My Pet's donation to the Rescue Animal MP3 Project!

September 3, 2012
Dear Tom Nazziola,
Thank you so much for your wonderful music donation to the Rescue Animal MP3 Project!  I am very grateful for your generosity and your compassion for animals. With your help, we have created this program to help animals in shelters, enriching the quality of their lives while they wait for forever homes.
We are reaching out to shelters across the U.S. to inform them of the Rescue Animal Mp3 project's pet calming music compilation available at no cost to facilities that shelter 10 animals or more with a completed application . An article in your newsletter or other outreach (promoting Rescue Animal Mp3 Project and your CDs) would help spread the word to communities to educate their local government and non-profit shelters about the beneficial calming effects of music in shelters and rescues.  Thank you so much for your help so far!
In only 8 months, our project has successfully installed preloaded Mp3 players in more than 150 shelters in 44 states, benefiting over 20,000 animals since December 2011.  We are very happy with this early progress.  However, we know that there is much more work to be done, many more animals to help, and we are up to the task! Follow up evaluations document 63% of the rescued shelter animals to be calmer, quieter and less stressed.  Our volunteer board members are working diligently together to coordinate fundraising, grant requests, project awareness and follow-ups under my direction.  Our goal is to reach out to the over 5,000 ASPCA independent shelters, and nearly 3,000 government–run facilities where the quality of life for the animals (and workers) can be improved dramatically, with very little effort.  Though it was not part of my original goal, I am happy to say that the evaluation feedback from shelters has shown that the music also has a calming effect on humans who work at the shelters and visit to adopt. This, too, creates a more harmonious atmosphere for the animals. Working together to reach out to shelters about the Rescue Animal Mp3 Project will continue to expand our shared compassion to help the animals.
Your outreach and fundraising suggestions will assist the Rescue Animal Mp3 Project to expand and provide music to more shelters and rescues across the U.S. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for spreading the word and helping enrich the lives of millions of homeless animals.
