You can bring joy, laughter and fun to Mecklenburg and Union counties children and animal rescue. Every dollar donated to the Joe Maus Foundation is a gift from the heart. You can help strengthen the programs we offer to children and animals in our community by donating to our general fund. General donations give us the flexibility to use the money for programs that need it. Your contribution supports our overall efforts and allows us to more broadly address the needs of the children and animals we serve.
