Petco Foundation Invests In Our Lifesaving Work With A Grant of $4000
[Hesperia] December 2015 – ARA Canine Rescue Inc is pleased to announce a $4,000 grant has been awarded from the Petco Foundation to support our rescue, rehabilitation and adoption work.
On average a quarter of our rescue cases have severe medical needs, and this grant will be applied to our extensive vet bills. in just the last couple of months of 2015 we saved 2 huskies with broken legs, a female with a tumor, and two huskies with severe gunshot wounds. All received comprehensive medical care, surgeries and convalescent time before they each went on to be adopted into loving forever families.
The Petco Foundation investment will help us to begin 2016 with a greatly reduced vet bill hanging over us. This means we are able to continue to take the injured, sick and down-trodden dogs that have no chance of being adopted without our efforts to rehabilitate and heal them.
“Receiving this support and recognition of our work from such a respected entity as the Petco Foundation is truly uplifting,” said Alley Ramirez, President or ARA Canine Rescue Inc.
