Small and medium-size rescues are the primary beneficiaries of the grants awarded by the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation. However, in times of crisis, they also bestow emergency donations of food and financial support to casualties of disaster. Thus far, victims of hurricanes, tornados and fires have all received funding and/or food donations from our non-profit. We can now add flood victims to the list of recipients who’ve benefitted from the foundation’s generosity.
In this special video report, Dr. Sarah serves as our ‘boots on the watery ground’ in flood-ravaged Colorado. Our Staff Veterinarian reveals what our non-profit has done to help alleviate the suffering of pet parents who’ve lost their homes and most, if not all, of their possessions.
As you’ll see, whole neighborhoods have been submerged or wiped off the map by the deluge, putting countless companion animals at-risk. Even now, weeks after the initial torrential rains and widescale flooding, rescue crews continue to search for missing people, dogs and cats.
Fortunately, amidst the chaos of indiscriminate destruction, Colorado residents have also been inundated with kindness from all corners of the country. Life-saving and sustaining aid pours in, including that from the Dr. Jane’s HealthyPetNet Foundation.
We also encourage you to watch last month’s episode of Pet Talk, ‘Disaster Prep’, which details the steps that pet mamas and papas can take now to be ready should disaster ever strike in your neighborhood.
