Matthew Rourke Memorial Campaign

Thank you for honoring Matt's memory by visiting our memorial page. 

For those who may not have known Matt, he is remembered as a hard-worker, reliable to a fault, and a friend to everyone.  He showed up when it mattered, had your back, gave to those in need, and would defend and stand up for his loved ones should the need for it arise. He kept us safe.  This became especially true after the death of our dad, Michael Rourke, six years ago.  Matt effortlessly stepped into the role of guardian and protector of our family.

Matt was also well-known for his lifelong love of dogs. Growing up, his family pets included a Dalmatian and two Toy Poodles, all of whom much more closely resembled human family members than canines. As an adult, Matt's deep-rooted love for dogs continued to grow, not only encompassing his own two beloved pups and his two "fur-nephews" (the"OG's"), but for ALL dogs- small, large, & everything-in-between.

Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to animals nationwide. Please join us in remembering Matt's life & paying tribute to him by making a donation that offers abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. Thank you for anything you may be able to contribute to this worthy cause.  Your donation enables Matt's spirit to live on through every single dog we are able to help through this campaign.

About the ASPCA: Fighting for animals is a 24/7 job, but your commitment makes it possible for our life-saving programs to create happy endings for those innocent lives touched by cruelty. Every single day of the year, we are rescuing animals from neglect and suffering. With your support, we are able to rescue animals from dog fighting, cockfighting, and puppy mills, work to end animal homelessness and farm animal cruelty, and provide medical care for countless pets in need. Please help us save even more animals and donate to this Team ASPCA campaign today.
