Friends of MCAS

About Us

Founded in December 2022, Friends of MCAS is 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is truly committed to the well-being and enrichment of the animals of Maury County. The organization was founded by Kim Plachta Raffauf (now the Director for MCAS) after recognizing the few resources that MCAS had to best take care of the animals in their care. With a passion for our community's animals, Kim decided go all-in and develop a structured, robust set of resources that could be utilized by MCAS to give the shelter animal their best chance at a thriving life. To this day, Friends of MCAS works hand in hand with MCAS to ensure that each and every animal has the best chance to a happy life.

Run 100% by volunteers, Friends of MCAS supports the needs of Maury's County's most vulnerable pets in the following ways:

• Facilitating Meet and Greets with adoptable pets outside of the shelter environment
• Hosting Meet and Greets in the play yards for potential adopters who have other pets in the home
• Organizing adoption and fundraising events to bring awareness to the community and raise money to support the needs of our county's vulnerable pets
• Friends of MCAS volunteers have a daily presence at the shelter, allowing the shelter dogs to have adequate potty breaks, play groups, affection, and more
