Home Fur Good Animal Rescue & Placement, 10220 N. 32nd St., was one of only 15 animal welfare organizations nationwide to receive a grant from The ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to help fund a “Clear the Shelters” adoption event on Aug. 15.
Home Fur Good is a nonprofit organization formed by a group of animal advocates in 2009 to reduce the rate of euthanasia of adoptable animals in Maricopa County by finding the animals forever homes.
The “Clear the Shelters” nationwide dog and cat adoption effort was sponsored by the NBCUniversal-Owned Television Stations division of NBC Universal and Telemundo. A total of $114,000 was distributed to the 15 participating organizations. Home Fur Good received $8,000, which it will share with five other Arizona shelters that participated in the event.
Home Fur Good adopted out two cats and 11 dogs during the event, with one additional dog adopted out the next day. For more information about Home Fur Good, visit http://homefurgood.org or call 623-252-2434.
