The Animal Foundation Launches Foster Family Project

The Animal Foundation is partnering with several pet rescue organizations to launch a new effort to find foster families for animals during the months when the shelter sees an influx of homeless pets.

The Foster Project hopes to connect animals searching for a forever home with families that can care for a pet for until a permanent home is found. The effort involves 14 local rescue groups and shelters:

Animal Foundation to Receive Money to Help Move Dogs and Puppies

Animal Foundation to Receive Money to Help Move Dogs and Puppies

 

A local shelter is getting a major infusion of money to help it expand services for shelter animals.

The Animal Foundation learned Monday that it has been selected by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or ASPCA, to participate in the Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project.

The project is a $1 million initiative to fund treatments and services for shelter dogs and puppies at municipal animal shelters like the Animal Foundation. The idea is to get them out of the overcrowded conditions at the shelter and into the hands of rescue groups and other less crowded shelters.

“We are so excited to be selected as a Petrie Foundation participant,” said Christine Robinson, Executive Director of The Animal Foundation. “The funds we receive will go a long way in finding animals who have ended up in our care through no fault of their own their forever homes.”
