Humane society grants help families and pets stay together

Posted Jul 29 2008 9:31am

Stories of pets being abandoned and separated from their owners due to foreclosure and the poor economy have been in the news everyday.

I'm glad to hear something is finally being done to alleviate the situation.The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)just launched a grant program that will help keep families and pets together during tough financial times.

From HSUS news:

The HSUS is offering grants to animal shelters, non-sheltered rescue/adoption groups and animal care and control agencies to help establish, expand, or publicize services or programs that assist families in caring for their pets during the current economic crisis.

"Dealing with a financial crisis is scary enough," said Stephanie Shain, director of outreach for Companion Animals at the Humane Society of the United States. "We hope to ease the burden in some way for families by helping their local shelter help them keep their pet home and part of the family."
