Meredith M Establishes Community Alliance Partnership with Trained Dogs for Adoption
Based in Altadena, Trained Dogs for Adoption (TDFA), an all-volunteer organization, was formed to fill a void in the Greater Southern California dog rescue community for hard to place German Shepherds. TDFA actively seeks out, trains and places these dogs in loving and qualified homes.
“We could not rescue, feed, provide vet care, train and shelter these amazing dogs that have been forsaken and in many cases, abused by their owners, without out the in-kind and financial support from businesses, friends and neighbors in Altadena. From animal shelters, to Girl Scout troops and other local non-profits, to members of the community who donate funds as well as their new and gently used clothes and household items for re-sale in our quarterly yard sales and local graphic designers and printers who donate their time and services to assist us in getting our jewelry ready for our annual Valentine’s Day and Christmas earring sales and to our local retail partner, Meredith M, who not only sells our product, but also helps to spread the word about TDFA and its programs. We thank-you from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to our continuing to partner with everyone for years to come” says Catherine Peters, co-founder and president, TDFA.
“Giving back to the communities we serve is part of our DNA. Both Michael and I are animal lovers and owners of several rescue dogs so our partnership with TFDA really speaks to us” says Meredith Miller, co-owner. “We were delighted to be one of the local businesses chosen to sell their ornament earrings during the month of December. All proceeds – $400 – from sale of these colorful and festive earrings were donated back to TFDA to fund their rescue efforts. Michael and I are so passionate about the great work being done by TDFA that we decided that Meredith M would match funds raised in the store and round it up to an even $1,000. In the coming months, we look forward to continuing to work with Catherine and her team to raise awareness and funds for TDFA.”
Meredith M is a trend-friendly women’s apparel and fashion accessories boutique that also features a selection of gifts and clothing for babies and toddlers. Owners Meredith and Michael Miller are committed to filling a void in the local marketplace, to contributing to the local economy and to the revitalization of the North Lake Avenue Corridor.
