As part of our “Give Where You Live” initiative, this week we’re highlighting the efforts of PetPromise, one of two local animal welfare organizations that we support and encourage our neighbors to support this holiday season!
PetPromise is dedicated to helping to create a world where there are no more homeless pets. Since 2000, volunteers at PetPromise have worked tirelessly to care for needy animals in foster homes until they are adopted. PetPromise does not have a shelter or sanctuary, and does not support euthanasia as a method of population control. Many animals cared for by PetPromise volunteers are considered unadoptable by other shelters due to their age, medical condition or breed. The organization is supported solely by public and private donations, and receives no government funding to fill the following needs.
- Rescue. PetPromise saves the lives of homeless and abused pets by taking them into foster homes, where they receive food, medical care and love.
- Adoption. While a pet is in foster care, PetPromise helps to advertise him/her at events, online and through social media in an effort to find a permanent home.
- Education. An important part of the PetPromise mission is to create community awareness about the needs of local pets through education.
- Sterilization. PetPromise provides spay and neuter services for feral cats. PetPromise recently received a $1,000 grant for spay and neuter services from The Ohio Pet Fund!
PetPromise is a true community effort to provide care and loving homes for all Columbus animals. In November, the Ohio Animal Companion hosted the Tackle Pet Hunger Food Drive and collected over 3,600 pounds of dog and cat food to support the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry and Faithful Forgotten Best Friends!
