The Humane Society of the United States has established a fund to address the hardships that the current economic downturn has visited on dogs and other pets.
The HSUS will administer grants from the Foreclosure Pets Fund to animal shelters, rescue groups, and animal control agencies to help establish and expand existing programs that assist families in caring for their pets during financial hardship. Grants vary in amounts from $500 to $2,000.
“With more and more individuals and families facing an uncertain financial future, shelters and rescue groups have their own struggle to respond to the rise in animals being brought to their doors and people seeking help from them in other ways,” said Stephanie Shain, director of outreach for companion animals at HSUS. “This grant program will help those organizations help more people and pets in their communities.”
