Animal Life Savers

Animal Life Savers
This New Jersey based rescue group has a storied history, with 20 years of lifesaving work to their credit. They offer a number of programs including adoption, spay/neuter clinics and a senior-to-senior program that provides food for older pets adopted by seniors. Now they’re supporting their community in a critical way - to help prove to the municipality that its pilot TNVR program is an impactful and worthwhile effort. Our grant funding will be used toward this purpose to directly fund spay/neuter and vaccination for community cats.

Another Chance RFT

Another Chance RFT
This worthy group of rescuers in Texas have stepped in to fill a critical need in their community’s Animal Care & Control department. Thanks to Another Chance’s involvement, AC&C’s live release rate increased from a tragic 4% to 90%! This heartening transformation required these volunteers to provide not only adoption services, but also all veterinary care. What’s more, our funding will go to help keep animals healthy and in their homes by providing heartworm treatment and prevention to those who cannot afford it.

Crazy Cats Animal Rescue

Crazy Cats Animal Rescue
The impacts of COVID-19 for this, and many rescue groups, are that the number of animals in need has increased, storefront adoption events have stopped, and donations have dropped off suddenly and sharply. With all of this happening at the height of kitten season, Crazy Cats in Ohio is working hard to work through a backlog of needed spay/neuter surgeries, and make up for lost adoptions and revenue. We are happy to support their efforts with a grant that will fund some of these critical needs.

Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue

Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue
Did you ever wonder who to call if you find an injured cat or dog on the side of the road? If you’re in the Hermison, Oregon area, Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue has the answer. Specializing in rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for unclaimed injured animals, these volunteers are all heart. With almost-certain veterinary bills for every animal, this is an understandably expensive endeavor which The Dr. Jane Foundation is pleased to support with funding.

Hart County Humane Society

Hart County Humane Society
This group of dedicated volunteers has made a massive, life-saving impact on the dogs and cats in this Georgia community. Their county shelter is where the majority of their animals come from.

Operation CatSnip of Kentucky, Inc.

Operation CatSnip of Kentucky, Inc.
COVID-19 has had a major impact on the operation of many rescue groups, and Operation CatSnip of Kentucky is no exception. Focused on Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release (TNVR) and the population management of community cats, they have shifted gears into a feeding mission. As restaurants and businesses that were once responsible for feeding and monitoring a group of cats have shuttered, volunteers are stepping up to ensure the daily feeding and care. Spay/neuter clinics also were on hold for a long period, creating a backlog of cats waiting to be altered, and risking more population growth as a result. Funding from our grant will be used to cover additional feeding expenses and surgeries once the spay/neuter program resumes.
Award given on 07/23/2020

PAWS of NE Louisiana, Inc.

PAWS of NE Louisiana, Inc.
It is common to see rescue organizations with two areas of focus - rescue and population management. In other words, adoption and spay/neuter. The trick is keeping funding levels high enough to support both ongoing efforts. This group has demonstrated innovation through partnerships that allow them to foster and rehabilitate dogs, and tap another rescue for the adoption. While bringing dogs into health is expensive, this format allows them to help more low-income pet parents to get their pets altered. Grant money will be used to bridge a donation gap left by COVID-19 for an upcoming spay/neuter program.

People & Pets Together

People & Pets Together
Since first earning a grant for their food assistance program from The Dr. Jane Foundation in 2018, this Minneapolis group has expanded their impact.

R U 4 Me Pet Rescue, Inc.

R U 4 Me Pet Rescue, Inc.
In this pandemic year, what would have been a marginal budget surplus has turned into a deficit. Many of their cats had been sheltered at pet supply stores which suspended partnerships in March of this year. With the loss of facilities, typical adoption efforts on hold, fundraising events canceled and the influx of animals continuing, this South Florida group has pivoted to refocus on not only sustaining current adoption levels, but also to continue to increase their ability to help more animals. Foster family heroes have stepped up to fill the housing gap. Grant funds will be used to support the care of animals while they’re in foster care awaiting their forever homes.

We are proud to support this effort and the care of dogs in foster homes with this round of grant funding.

Spay Campbell County Tennessee Pets

Spay Campbell County Tennessee Pets
The phrase “small-but-mighty” can be used to describe many of the organizations we support, and Spay Campbell County Tennessee Pets is no exception. Serving their community with nearly 1,000 spay/neuter surgeries annually, their goal is to reduce the number of animals surrendered to their local shelters each year. Pet parents pay a nominal fee for this invaluable surgery. The group makes up the difference with the help of a generous rate offered by area veterinarians.

Mary’s NeoNate Kittens

Mary’s NeoNate Kittens
Two important things for a new organization to have are a pragmatic growth plan and lots of heart. That is especially true when serving the time-demanding charges that are the focus of this budding group - newborn kittens. This group from Washington is committed to working smarter and staying organized because they recognize that bottles, scales and warming pads are just the beginning when it comes to filling the role of ‘mom’ to neonatal kittens. Timed perfectly to the spring start of “kitten season”, funds awarded by The Dr. Jane Foundation will be used to keep core supplies flowing.

A Doggie 4 You

A Doggie 4 You
With a forecast 660 adoptions this year, it could be easy to get mired down in the day-to-day work required to rescue, care for and place so many animals. Instead, this worthy group from Texas, A Doggie 4 You, is looking to the future and planning to expand their kennel capacity, and thereby expand their already impressive number of annual adoptions.
