FOUND ANIMALS: AN ADMIRABLE MISSION
The fine folks at Found Animals work hard to minimize the senseless deaths of perfectly adoptable shelter pets put down due to lack of space.
While not a rescue, Found Animals supports animal care facilities in the LA area by offering sterilization programs, adoption events, micro-chipping and public education. Once their business model to curb overpopulation proves sustainable in LA, it will be applied in other communities as well.
HOW DO THEY DO IT?
- In June, FA asked viewers to vote for which sexy men would be featured in “6 Packs/9 Lives,” the first calendar to incorporate men and their cats to promote shelter pets.
- To prepare for kitten season, Found Animals covered the adoption fees for a second cat when 2 were adopted from one of 14 participating animal care centers. 665 pairs of cats were adopted during this highly effective Summer Buddies program.
- The Found Animals staff brings fun and energy to events such as Save a Stray for the Holidays, encouraging people to “Adopt – Don’t Shop.”
