Kalamazoo Animal Welfare Group Gets Grant of Pet Toys

TUCSON, October 15, 2014 The Petfinder Foundation has announced that Animal Rescue Project, Kalamazoo, is one of 12 animal welfare groups that will receive a grant of Kong pet toys valued at $799 from The Kong Company, which is based in Colorado. All recipients of the awards are members of Petfinder. Animal Rescue Project posts its adoptable pets here .

Kong makes a line of versatile and durable toys, including their classic rubber toys that deliver treats while pets play with them.

The Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity, helps homeless pets by saving lives through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for and recover from disaster and working to make sure animal welfare organizations across the country are more sustainable. Its mission is to ensure no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a home. Since 2003 the foundation has provided over $20 million in grants to animal welfare organizations and member shelters and rescue groups.

An overview of our rescue group

Watch this video to see how we've been able to provide for all our animals through 2013. Help us continue our work and get more of them into loving homes in 2014 by donating!

We are a non-profit animal welfare group committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of at-risk pets from pound facilities. We rescue dogs and cats from everywhere in Michigan — and anywhere else there is a cat or dog in need. With our rescue shelter and foster homes, we have between 75 and 100 dogs and puppies and between 60 and 80 cats and kittens in our care at any time.

We are an an all-volunteer group with the exception of paid kennel staff. More than 95 percent of the money we receive is spent directly on animal rescue and rehabilitation. Our only sources of revenue are adoption fees, tax-deductible donations, and fundraising efforts.

We are a dedicated, no-kill organization. We provide comfortable and nurturing living quarters for homeless pets, even when a pet needs to stay with us for months or even longer while waiting for the right adoption match. We provide skilled and well-trained animal care providers at our renovated rescue shelter. We give each animal a medical check and medical care as needed. We talk with potential adopters and ask them to fill out an adoption application form to help us identify suitable matches for each animal and each adopter. All other organizational commitments and considerations remain secondary.

More details about our background and approach are on our About page.
