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.
