Facebook Campaign Leads to Help For Sick and Injured Shelter Pets – Benzinga.com

Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America’s largest non-profit homeless pet-adoption web service, and Purina® Veterinary Diets® today announced the kick-off of an initiative to help offset veterinary costs shouldered by animal shelters and rescue organizations. The Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund, made possible by a donation from Purina Veterinary Diets®, will provide twenty-five grants, totaling $50,000, to U.S. and Canadian animal welfare organizations. The application process opens today, and one grant of $2,000 will be awarded each week for the next 25 weeks.

The Veterinary Care Fund web page http://adoptapet.com/VeterinaryHelp will display the weekly grant recipients, along with photos and stories of how the grants are helping to create happy endings for specific shelter pets.

What a great way to help out animal rescue organizations. They have been hit hard with the economy taking a dive the last few years. Many of us have shelter pets that we consider to be our babies. If it weren’t for the kindness and monetary support of veterinarians, shelters and the many other organizations it just wouldn’t be possible to bring home those little cuties.
