Save-A-Pet launches new programs hoping for the future – Chicago Pets – Examiner.com

Nearly a year after announcing its future was in jeopardy, Save-a-Pet, a no-kill, animal shelter is now focusing on the long-term. The Grayslake organization spent the past year tightening its budget and working on new fund raising initiatives and is now announcing series of campaigns aimed at solidifying its future.

“We aren’t breathing easy just yet, but we are taking some big gulps after making the necessary budgetary decisions to move forward and become more self-sustaining,” said Mark Portugal, the organization’s development manager. “Our niche, from a corporate standpoint is to not discriminate against the animals that we admit based on age, health, breed or other factors. That forces us to be more creative, innovative and inclusive when we work on fund raising and building relationships.”
