Animal Life Savers

This New Jersey based rescue group has a storied history, with 20 years of lifesaving work to their credit. They offer a number of programs including adoption, spay/neuter clinics and a senior-to-senior program that provides food for older pets adopted by seniors. Now they’re supporting their community in a critical way, to help prove to the municipality that its pilot TNVR program is an impactful and worthwhile effort. Our grant funding will be used toward this purpose to directly fund spay/neuter and vaccination for community cats.

Another Chance RFT

This worthy group of rescuers in Texas have stepped in to fill a critical need in their community’s Animal Care & Control department. Thanks to Another Chance’s involvement, AC&C’s live release rate increased from a tragic 4% to 90%! This heartening transformation required these volunteers to provide not only adoption services, but also all veterinary care. What’s more, our funding will go to help keep animals healthy and in their homes by providing heartworm treatment and prevention to those who cannot afford it.

BestPals Animal Rescue Center

When it comes to making the heartbreaking decision to give up a pet, families in Michigan can turn to BestPals Animal Rescue Center. This volunteer-based organization guarantees placement of owner-surrendered pets. Thanks to a network of foster volunteers and a modest kennel facility, these dogs and cats have a gentle transition into their new home. Funds from this grant will be used to expand the capacity of their dog kennels.

Candy’s Cats, Inc.

This Florida-based cat rescue offers adoption and spay/neuter services for our feline friends in an underserved community. In the wake of an operational shift due to the pandemic, we look forward to the day when they can get back to working toward their long-term goal of reducing the community cat population through TNVR and adoption. Funds from this grant will help prepare cats and kittens for their new adoptive homes.

Crazy Cats Animal Rescue

The impacts of COVID-19 for this, and many rescue groups, are that the number of animals in need has increased, storefront adoption events have stopped, and donations have dropped off suddenly and sharply. With all of this happening at the height of kitten season, Crazy Cats in Ohio is working hard to work through a backlog of needed spay/neuter surgeries, and make up for lost adoptions and revenue. We are happy to support their efforts with a grant that will fund some of these critical needs.

Fuzz
Ball Animal Rescue

Did you ever wonder who to call if you find an injured cat or dog on the side of the road? If you’re in the Hermiston, Oregon area, Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue has the answer. Specializing in rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for unclaimed injured animals, these volunteers are all heart. With almost-certain veterinary bills for every animal, this is an understandably expensive endeavor which The Dr. Jane Foundation is pleased to support with funding.

Hart County Humane Society

This group of dedicated volunteers has made a massive, life-saving impact on the dogs and cats in this Georgia community. Their county shelter is where the majority of their animals come from. This strategic arrangement has reduced the county’s euthinasia rate from 80%, down to 20%. There’s still work to be done and Hart County Humane Society is committed to continue their mission through rescues, low cost spay and neuter, and education.

Operation CatSnip of Kentucky, Inc.

COVID-19 has had a major impact on the operation of many rescue groups, and Operation CatSnip of Kentucky is no exception. Focused on Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release (TNVR) and the population management of community cats, they have shifted gears into a feeding mission. As restaurants and businesses that were once responsible for feeding and monitoring a group of cats have shuttered, volunteers are stepping up to ensure the daily feeding and care. Spay/neuter clinics also were on hold for a long period, creating a backlog of cats waiting to be altered, and risking more population growth as a result. Funding from our grant will be used to cover additional feeding expenses and surgeries once the spay/neuter program resumes.

PAWS of NE Louisiana, Inc.

It is common to see rescue organizations with two areas of focus – rescue and population management. In other words, adoption and spay/neuter. The trick is keeping funding levels high enough to support both ongoing efforts. This group has demonstrated innovation through partnerships that allow them to foster and rehabilitate dogs, and tap another rescue for the adoption. While bringing dogs into health is expensive, this format allows them to help more low-income pet parents to get their pets altered. Grant money will be used to bridge a donation gap left by COVID-19 for an upcoming spay/neuter program.
