PARIS -- BISSELL Pet Foundation has awarded $5,000 to Rescue Me Clifford (RMC) to assist its lifesaving efforts. Funds will provide the veterinary care necessary to prepare dogs for adoption, according to a press release.
The BISSELL Pet Foundation grant will support RMC to help make rescue pets more adoptable by providing proactive veterinary care. RMC is regularly confronted with dogs that require spay/neuter, diagnostics, and medications, among other treatments, to get them healthy and ready for adoption. RMC pulls dogs from municipal shelters in Southern Illinois, Tennessee and Missouri, with each dog rescued freeing up space in the shelter to save another pet. Giving the dogs needed medical treatment increases their likelihood of finding permanent homes and promotes the humane treatment of animals.
“The greatest reward is to help our partners save thousands of animals’ lives each year by supporting their efforts,” explains Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We hope to see the day when every pet has a loving, forever home.”
BISSELL Pet Foundation provides much-needed financial assistance to animal welfare organizations with the goal of finding every pet a loving home. Since its inception, the foundation has given more than $4 million in support to organizations like Rescue Me Clifford.
