Challenge

Many shelters are in need of repair and support services for their animals but do not have the operating budgets to implement all the necessary changes. We would like to improve shelter conditions for animals by providing exercise areas, toys, clean housing and raised beds while they are sheltered. Student volunteers from Rescue University will assist in repair of fencing and buildings. Professionals will educate shelter staff to help reduce the overpopulation problem and increase adoptions.

Solution

The Petfinder Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity, works to ensure no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a home. We help homeless pets by saving lives through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for and recover from disasters, and working to make sure animal adoption organizations are more sustainable. Since 2003, the Foundation has provided more than $20 million in grants to animal welfare organizations and Petfinder.com member shelters and rescue groups.
Your donation goes to support our Rescue U program. Rescue U pairs student volunteers from colleges across the country with animal shelters in need of help. Students give up their vacation time from school to help pets and shelter staff in need - from physical repairs to the shelter itself to walking and training dogs, and everything in between.

Long-Term Impact

Homeless pets will be saved. The community receives valuable tools and information and improved shelter conditions for animals and staff. Student experience the overpopulation problem and learn valuable ways to solve it.
