Monterey, CA, June 04, 2020 - Max’s Helping Paws Foundation received a financial boost last week through a $5,000 grant from the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, host of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and PURE Insurance Championship.
The financial gift will go a long way toward furthering Max’s mission of helping local families fund treatment for pets in crisis.
What began in 2016 as a way for Dyana Klein to honor the memory of her beloved dog Maximillian has grown into a critical source of funding for local families, especially during the current pandemic. In March the foundation reached an important milestone, helping more than 250 Monterey County pet owners by providing more than $220,000 in total assistance.
Through it all, the foundation has given Klein a way to help lessen the guilt and heartbreak of other pet owners who might have to allow their pets to suffer, or may need to euthanize or surrender them because of financial circumstances.
The donation is part of Monterey Peninsula Foundation’s ongoing mission to enhance the quality of life in Monterey County and surrounding areas through the strategic disbursement of charitable funds generated by hosting two golf tournaments, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the PURE Insurance Championship.
With close to 80 years of expertise in managing golf events and charitable giving, Monterey Peninsula Foundation focuses on creating positive community change across Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties. Find out more about the foundation at www.montereypeninsulafoundation.org.
