Mission Statement

Our mission is to support rescue and relief efforts of pets affected by natural disasters and other devastating emergencies.

Description

Working with Zak George of Animal Planet's "SuperFetch" and the Greater New Orleans Foundation, the Petritionals Pet Rescue Fund was established to help pets in crises.

During large-scale crises, many pets are relinquished or otherwise become displaced from their homes and end up in animal shelters. These shelters generally lack the resources necessary to handle such dramatic influxes of pets, and they quickly become overwhelmed. When this happens, the dogs and cats at these shelters unfortunately face a second heartbreaking adversity: many have to be euthanized because there is simply neither the space nor money to care for them.

The Petritionals Pet Rescue Fund aims to prevent the euthanasia of so many pets by providing financial assistance to animal shelters and other nonprofit organizations working to care for pets affected during large-scale crises. Through a 5% donation of all sales proceeds, the coordination of donations from pet owners and others into the Pet Rescue Fund, and through promotion of direct pet adoptions, we hope to save as many dogs and cats as possible.
