Throughout the summer, all 52 of our Best Friends locations and affiliated veterinary hospitals collected donations to support the efforts of Dogs on Deployment and the military pets and families that they help. Because of your generosity, we were able to collect a total of $6549.00 for this amazing cause.
Back in October of this year we delivered a van full of supplies to Animal Control Officer Mark Rudewicz, for the Heroes and Hounds program. Heroes & Hounds is a program he founded to help the military dogs and their handlers, overseas. He started collecting donations and putting together care packages for these teams about four years ago.
Every year at each of our locations, we have an Animal Angel Tree program that collects donations for shelter and rescue groups until the end of the year. Actually, since it began in December 2000, the Best Friends Pet Care Angel Tree campaign has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of food, toys and pet care products to more than 100 different shelters and rescues across the U.S. -- and dozens of pets have found new homes in time for the new year.
The recent floods in Colorado have been both terrifying and devastating. Hundreds are homeless and many have been separated from their pets.
When we learned of the Heroes & Hounds program, founded by Mark Rudewicz of the Simsbury Police Department, we knew we had to help.
The task facing the Oklahoma animal welfare community is massive: not only are there lost pets who must be rescued and cared for until they can be reunited with their family, but many families have no way to care for their pets now that they have lost their homes.
