Middletown Chosen as 1 of 3 Cities in Northeast - Coalition of Local Animal Organizations

Participate at The Buttonwood Tree -  Thursday Evening January 23 – Free Beverages to Survey Takers for 10 Minutes of Your Time!

PetSmart Charities has awarded a grant to a coalition of New England animal organizations, such as humane societies and animal shelters, to learn more about the needs of people, pets, and access to animal services. 

Middletown was chosen as one of three communities in which the research team would like to learn more about, and they are looking for about 50 more people to complete a short survey. It only takes 5 minutes if you don’t have pets, or about 10 minutes if you do own pets. They will be at The Buttonwood Tree on Thursday evening, January 23 from 7 – 9 p.m. during the evening DRUM CIRCLE.  Everyone that completes a survey will be given one free beverage of their choice as a thank you for participating and free entrance to the drum circle. You do not have to participate in the drum circle to take part in the survey.

If you are unable to swing by and participate, you can take the survey by following this link and you will receive a small Amazon gift card within 2-3 business days as a thank you for your time. Visit to complete the survey. Your participation will help local organizations better understand the needs of the community and how we can better support those needs in the future.

Is this a Wesleyan-related story? I don’t understand the question posed by anon @ 4:04. Perhaps he or she might elaborate?
