Charitable work is central to our mission of well-being for all. It’s so important to us that every order placed on our site aids homeless animals.

As the charitable arm of Life’s Abundance, The Dr. Jane Foundation provides financial support to the small and medium-size rescue groups who work to prevent animal homelessness, abuse and chronic neglect.

Our non-profit proudly bears the name of our Pet Product Formulator, Dr. Jane Bicks, whose lifetime of dedication to improving the lives of companion animals serves as a continual source of inspiration for our good works. More...

Less Adoptable, More Loveable

Recently, I read an article about dogs and cats that are considered “less adoptable” due to their age, breed or traits. This item was written in connection with Petfinder's “Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet-Week”, which is celebrated the last week of September. I was surprised to find out that black cats are still considered less adoptable mainly due to superstition; hard to believe considering it’s 2014. My husband and I have shared our home with a black cat for 15 years. Lucky Boy is not only handsome with his dark fur and big green eyes, but he’s funny and playful … a complete joy. So it occurred to me that our readers have had similar positive experiences with their supposed “less adoptable” companion animals. By sharing our stories, together we can help increase the adoption rates of less fortunate animals and encourage more families to experience the delight of sharing their lives with pets that may not be considered perfect but have so much love and appreciation to give.More...

Very few would argue that our country suffers from an inordinately high population of homeless pets. Current estimates put the number of pets entering shelters between 6-8 million. Less than half of these animals are adopted.

For the last few years, we’ve published monthly reports about small-to-medium size rescue groups doing their utmost to deal with the crisis. Which is why it brings us great pleasure to announce funding for an innovative rescue start-up that seeks to change the future. More...

Foundation Award to Paws South Florida Rescue

Thursday, 16 January 2014 14:02 by Life's Abundance

Starting an animal rescue is a much bigger endeavor than most people think. Some groups lack the resources to make it through the first year of service. This is why, when a small, tight-knit group of people unite to not only create a functional rescue, but also demonstrate a willingness to tackle big problems, you know you have something special.

‘Beaumont (a.k.a. Beau) flourishing under
CARMA’s excellent care.’

This month’s featured grant recipient is Companion Animal Rescue & Medical Assistance Inc. (CARMA), a non-profit organization doing its utmost to alter the destiny of dogs and cats abandoned in New Mexico.

Just over a decade ago, many of the unwanted animals in the rural Albuquerque suburb of Village of Corrales faced almost certain euthanasia. Fortunately, this group of supremely dedicated volunteers came together in 1999, determined to make a big difference in the way abandoned animals are treated. Their efforts have been rewarded, effecting a much broader change, saving innumerable lives every year. More...
