The Big Payback is back, and we need you now more than ever.

The Big Payback, a community-wide, online giving day hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, kicks off on Wednesday, May 6 at 6pm, and BEESLEY ANIMAL FOUNDATION is thrilled to be participating!

With the recent disasters in our region – the tornadoes, COVID-19, and the unfolding economic downturn – this year it’s more important than ever to help lift up nonprofit, school, and faith-based organizations. So many of us have had to slow down or push pause on our work during a time when Middle Tennessee needs us most.

In the past six years, the region’s generosity was astonishing as our community rallied together to raise a total nearly $17 million for more than 1,000 area organizations.

How does The Big Payback work?
The clock starts ticking at 6pm on Wednesday, May 6, and donors have 24 hours to make gifts online to The Big Payback’s participating organizations located in or providing services to the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee.

Contributions to BEESLEY ANIMAL FOUNDATION could be amplified throughout the event by incentives, bonuses, and prizes made possible by The Big Payback sponsors.

This year, we can also accept donations on GivingTuesday (Tuesday, May 5) directly through our profile page on Funds raised on May 5 will count toward our total dollars raised and bring us closer to winning one of The Big Payback’s grand prizes.

A true friend to animals

Jesse C. Beesley, a local noted sculptor, was instrumental in forming the first humane society in Rutherford County in 1976. He inspired the formation of the Beesley Animal Clinic in 1992 which is primarily a spay neuter clinic. Today the Beesley Animal Foundation operates Beesley Animal Clinic and is dedicated to decreasing the suffering caused by pet overpopulation.

 Abandoning Animals is Unlawful

Abandoning Animals is Unlawful

The Beesley Animal Clinic and Beesley Animal Foundation actively promote responsible pet ownership with the welfare and humane treatment of all animals of utmost importance. However, we are not a humane shelter, nor are we set-up for pet rescue or rehoming. Any pets left in abandonment at the Beesley facility will be turned over to PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Services) of Rutherford County, TN and we will assist as we can with finding and prosecuting those responsible.
