Companion Animal Advocates awarded $6,000 grant from Best Friends Animal Society®, PetSmart Charities® Grant will support Companion Animal Advocates’ lifesaving work for homeless pets
Best Friends Animal Society® in partnership with PetSmart Charities® is pleased to announce that Companion Animal Advocates has been awarded a grant for its Stop Littering program.
Companion Animal Advocates is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets® Network <http://nmhpnetwork.bestfriends.org/> , a program of Best Friends Animal Society that offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
“This grant project will help address one of the critical components in the homeless pets issue. By helping families afford to spay/neuter their companion animals we can make a significant impact on the number of unwanted litters that are born each year,” said Ellen Gilmore, manager of Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network.
Christine Devereaux said: “This grant means that we can enhance our already existing Stop Littering program and help reduce the numbers of unwanted litters that end up in shelters and keep pets with families. We appreciate Best Friends and PetSmart Charities support to make our Stop Littering program a great success.”
This lifesaving grant is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s mission of No More Homeless Pets®. Every day, approximately 9,000 pets are killed in shelters because they don’t have a home. Best Friends and PetSmart Charities are committed to saving them.
