Paws for Life NC, based in Youngsville, North Carolina, has received a $1,500 Petfinder “Nestle Purina New Year, New Home Pet Adoption Grant” from the Petfinder Foundation.
The grant funding will enable Paws for Life NC to reduce the adoption fees of 6 cats and 6 dogs in the month of April. The fee for certain dogs will be lowered from $225 to $100 and certain cats from $95 to $40. Reduced adoption fees result in more pets that can be saved. Lowering the fee helps the Paws for Life NC animal rescue find homes more quickly, attract new adopters, and free up space in foster homes. As a foster-based animal rescue, foster home space is essential. An open foster home allows for more pets to be removed from overcrowded County shelters.
Paws for Life NC helps homeless dogs and cats in Franklin, Granville, and Northern Wake counties. A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Paws for Life NC provides medical care and foster homes for unwanted pets and helps those pets find new loving homes. Paws for Life NC also assists community members by offering low-cost or free spay/neuter options. Since 2002, Paws for Life NC has saved thousands of pets from unnecessary euthanasia through fostering while decreasing pet overpopulation through spay/neuter. To help save pets in the community Paws for Life NC is always in need of new volunteers, adopters, and more foster homes. To learn more visit the website at pawsforlifenc.org.
