Lincoln Animal Ambassadors Awarded $9,000 in Grants

0

Three national charities have awarded significant grants to the Lincoln Animal Ambassadors (LAA) in support of its programs.
In January, 2012, Banfield Charitable Trust awarded a $5,000 grant to LAA in support of its temporary assistance Pet Food Bank.  Banfield Charitable Trust works to keep the most vulnerable populations together with their pet companions.  They promote the human-pet bond which provides mental, physical and emotional benefits to our communities. With Banfield’s assistance, LAA continues to work to prevent the surrender of pets, which needlessly burdens public and private shelters.

Many local pets in need of spay-neuter services will receive assistance thanks to the PETCO Foundation and The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).  These organizations granted $2,000 each to LAA in recent months.

In addition,the Lincoln Animal Ambassadors was selected as a charitable partner by both of Lincoln’s PETCO stores during the company’s Tree of Hope campaign that raised money by asking customers to “round up” during the recent holiday season.

These grants, under the direction of LAA, will help reduce pet overpopulation and prevent pet euthanasia in Lincoln and surrounding areas.
