Local Tahoe pet rescue organization Pet Network Humane Society (who, we’re quite proud to say, is also our client) helped bring in 160 pets to make room for animals displaced in the recent hurricanes.
Yep, you heard us right. Our client Pet Network Humane Society really is that awesome. The organization led the charge in early October to free up some room in New Orleans area animal shelters, funding two air shipments of 80 pets each into local airports. Read on to learn how these heroes did it.
How 160 fur balls flew the friendly skies in search of families
To make it all happen, Pet Network joined forces with Petaluma Animal Services. The two groups then put together supplies, garnered veterinary assistance, arranged for the animals’ air transport, and assembled a coalition of Reno/Tahoe and Northern California animal shelters—each willing to house some of the pets. The team got generous support from Maddie’s Fund and the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation to top things off.
In a recent news release, Jason said, “We are calling this our ‘You to the Rescue Mission’ because it relies on the kindness and generosity of many supporters, volunteers, donors, foster caregivers, and, of course, those who open their hearts and homes to adopt a rescued pet.”
How you can also be awesome
We can all help keep the awesomeness flowing! According to experts, fostering an animal for three weeks to three months can make a profound difference for overall rescue efforts. And, for those of us who just have no more room in the house, giving money is just as powerful (and just as awesome). When you consider that a few extra bucks could save the life of a pet, it puts it in perspective.
