Angelas Angels Cat Rescue

Kitty

This month, we’d like to highlight another financial award given by the Dr. Jane HealthyPetNet Foundation, this time to Angela's Angels Cat Rescue, a donor-supported, non-profit, no-kill, cage-free cat rescue in Columbia, North Carolina. What began as a personal experience caring for and rescuing sickly and abandoned cats, quickly became the established rescue organization we honor here.

A small, tightly knit organization, their focus is on saving felines from euthanasia at high-kill shelters, while also taking in stray, abandoned and surrendered cats. They actively work to maintain relationships with other no-kill rescues, shelters and vets in the surrounding area, thus creating a strong network of caring individuals working in tandem to save as many cats as possible, placing them in loving, permanent homes. The majority of their rescues are in temporary foster care, although some of their adoptable cats currently reside in the cage-free “Cat House” on the founders’ property. More...

Ensuring Better Days for Homeless Pets

Resting Doggie

This holiday season, we’re especially pleased to bring you news of yet another financial award given by the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation, this time to an inspirational organization of animal rescuers in Pennsylvania.

Better Days Animal League is a non-profit animal rescue organization that was established in the summer of 2007. In their short time on the scene, they have helped to rescue and find forever homes for hundreds of animals in need.

The folks at this wonderful organization coordinate their efforts with local government officials and other local rescue organizations to further their primary mission, which is to be a strong advocate for animals. In fact, they are absolutely dedicated to the principle that all life must be treated with value, dignity and respect. More...

Giving Makes the World a Better Place

Dr Jane Bicks A time of togetherness and giving, the holiday season is upon us. Many of us will be devoting a great deal of time preparing for and spending time with family and friends. And while we may be busy scurrying about, carrying out holiday plans, the holidays are also a time when some reflect upon their lives and consider the consequences of their actions for the benefit of others.

And I’m so grateful to have a role in a company that does so much to promote the welfare and health of companion animals. As I’m fond of saying, we’re a small company with a great heart. Helping companion animals to lead healthier, longer and happier lives is not just an important company commitment … it’s our personal mission.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to speak directly to you in posts like this, to share my thoughts and insights in the hopes that they will benefit you in some way. In this post, I’d like to reveal the latest news from the work of the foundation that bears my name.

As you probably know, the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial support to a variety of animal rescue groups, all of which are dedicated to helping to save neglected, abused and unwanted animals. Today in America, there are literally thousands of rescue organizations working to make a brighter future for these helpless creatures. We provide funding to deserving organizations that meet very specific qualifications, such as demonstrating a high level of cleanliness, maintaining a caring environment, providing full veterinary care, and facilitating adoptions of their rescues.

In the past few months, we’ve awarded thousands of dollars to numerous worthy rescue groups, including... More...

Foundation Delivers Truckload of Aid to Animal Shelter

Dr Jane FoundationWhen one of Florida’s newest animal rescue organizations took in sixteen abused dogs from out-of-state, they found themselves in dire and immediate need of supplies. Fortunately, the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation was ready and willing to lend a helping hand.

Subjected to physical and mental abuse in a North Carolina product-testing laboratory, the dogs came to Palm Beach County after an undercover investigation publicized their plight. The laboratory closed, turning over all of the nearly 200 animals used in experiments to various East Coast humane agencies, including Wellington’s In Dog We Trust (IDWT). Founded by Nicole Brown, IDWT is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter that opened just this summer on the 20-acre property of what used to be the Folke Peterson Wildlife Center, a wildlife sanctuary shuttered in 2009.

Once known only by the codes tattooed on their bodies, sixteen Beagles now call IDWT their temporary home and are now christened with proper names. It may be weeks before the dogs are made available for adoption, as they begin to recover from their traumas, learn basic skills and become accustomed to human companionship. Their caretakers estimate that most of the Beagles are only two years old. More...

Small Town, Huge Heart

Tabby Town

On the outskirts of Westby, a sparsely populated, rural town in Western Wisconsin, lies one of America’s great treasures … Tabby Town USA, a small animal rescue group that brings solace to the forgotten.

Founded by Marie and Ted Glover in 2003 after adopting an injured cat, Tabby Town now provides shelter and care for up to 80 kittens and cats on any given day. Currently, the majority of their feline community is housed under the Glover’s roof, with two floors, multiple bedrooms, vertical lofts and a lovely sunroom. While most of their cats were abandoned, they’ve also saved kitties that were slated for euthanasia at local shelters. More...

Looking Out for the Big Guys

Austin

Located in Palm Beach County, FL, Big Dog Ranch Rescue offers a true last line of defense for hundreds of souls, burdened by illness, neglect and despair. More...

Two Types of Seniors to Benefit from Foundation Award

Brandy-American Brittany The Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation has made fresh inroads to making the world a better place for senior citizens and senior dogs.

Our charitable non-profit has awarded a financial grant to the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network (NBRAN), a dedicated organization devoted to saving the lives of abandoned American Brittanies both in the U.S. and Canada. A network of foster-care volunteers, NBRAN is comprised of individuals who work passionately on behalf of this lovable breed.

Once referred to as “Brittany Spaniels”, Britts are known to retain their puppy-like enthusiasm regardless of age. Great family dogs, they tend to be gentle, yet active, and are widely recognized for their good humor. More...

Looking Back at Giving Back

Dr Jane FoundationWe’re nearly midway through 2010, and we’d like to take this opportunity to share the progress made by the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation thus far into 2010. While we have highlighted some of the caring animal rescue agencies who have received financial awards this year, many more grants have been awarded.

Before we convey some of the details about these worthy organizations, we want to thank you for all that you’ve done to support our foundation. Even if you have never made a donation directly to the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation, if you have ever purchased any of our products, you have contributed to its reserves and thus helped animals in need. And for that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As you’ve probably noted, the vast majority of the animal rescue groups selected for our grants are small non-profits who typically operate on shoestring budgets. In many cases, the only assets these heart-full groups have are the people dedicated to aiding homeless and abused companion animals. Frequently located in small communities, these affiliations fulfill a vital need in under-served areas of the U.S. Not only do they accomplish so much with so few resources, they work every day to relieve suffering and enrich their communities.

Saving Small Wonders

Dachshund Rescue The old adage that “good things come in small packages” couldn’t be truer with regards to the lively, lovable Dachshund, affectionately referred to collectively as “doxies”. Although it’s hard to imagine anyone abandoning one of these clever little canines, sadly it happens all too often. Fortunately, the Dachshund Rescue South Florida is committed to rescuing Dachshunds, giving them a chance to live better lives. That’s why we are so pleased to report that The Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation has granted a financial award to this worthy organization to help them cover the costs of much-needed veterinary services.

Dachshund Rescue views any successful animal rescue as one with the “patience and understanding” to oversee all of the steps of adoption, in order to give dogs a “second chance at a wonderful life”. And they have done more than just give Dachshunds a fighting chance; in fact, in their first two years of operation, they have saved the lives of over 200 doxies! More...
