Our Foundation Awards Grants to Several Rescues

Our Foundation Awards Grants to Several Rescues

Did you know that every order placed at Life’s Abundance benefits our charitable foundation? It’s true! Whether you’re ordering the finest nutritional supplements for yourself or premium quality food for your pet kids, your business will help the plight of homeless animals across America.

This work is done through our non-profit wing, The Dr. Jane Foundation, which provides financial support to small and medium-size rescue groups who work to prevent animal homelessness, abuse and chronic neglect. Since 2007, we’ve awarded more than $190,000 in funding to well over 100 deserving groups! 

In an era where so many shelters self-identify as “no kill”, it’s shocking to learn that euthanasia is still responsible for the deaths of nearly three million dogs and cats every year. Obviously, there’s a lot of work left to do, and why we wholeheartedly support the very agencies who are striving to bring these numbers down.

In every state, small and medium-sized rescues are working their hearts out to save as many homeless animals as possible. While large groups attract huge amounts of funding through awareness campaigns, these smaller non-profits rely heavily on the goodwill of their local communities. When a national organization like our foundation helps out, it helps draw attention to their vital, life-saving efforts.

To qualify for funding from our foundation, applicants must meet rigorous criteria. Most of our grant recipients utilize one or more programs that have proven successful in curbing pet overpopulation and reducing the number of pet kids euthanized. These initiatives include low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, TNR (trap-neuter-return) management of feral cat communities, affordable adoption fees, and community education efforts regarding the proper care of companion animals and the dangers of animal abuse and neglect. And all of this is done in addition to the day-to-day activities undertaken by these committed rescuers to place their animals in loving adoptive homes.

Time and time again, we’ve seen witnessed amazing transformations. Animals who have borne the brunt of cruelty or long-term neglect and yet were still able to rise above their hardships and make full recoveries. Every new group brings its own stories of triumph in the face of adversity. With so many grant recipients, it’s hard to calculate the exact number of animals helped by our non-profit … but it’s easily in the hundreds, if not thousands!

Just think, simply by shopping with Life’s Abundance, you’re making the world a better place. How often do you get to do something positive without having to do anything different at all? As long as you keep purchasing our health-promoting products, you’ll be supporting rescues!

And we’ve saved the best news for last. Our Board of Directors just held a quarterly meeting last month, approving grants to the following six incredibly worthy recipients …

- Forever Husky, Inc. of Crystal Lake, IL

- Page Animal Adoption Agency of Page, AZ

- Second Chance Cocker Rescue of Santa Barbara, CA

- Action Programs for Animals of Las Cruces, NM

- Fix Smith County of Elmwood, TN

- Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue, Inc. of Columbus, OH

Congratulations to all of these groups for their amazing efforts to make the world a better place for companion animals in need! And check back soon for updates on these very groups, and what they are able to accomplish with this round of funding.

Check back next month for another update from The Dr. Jane Foundation. Together, we’re making a difference!

    Please consider  boxerlu.  They do an excellent job of rescue and matching parents with their potential family members.
    Our precious girl came to us after a horrendous life and we were chosen to make her forever life, and ours too, the happiest and safest of all. The volunteers and coordinators are the very best.  Thank goodness for them for filling the void in our home, after losing a 13 year old boxer.  We are a doggie home again.

    This rescue specializes in rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming bully breed dogs that have no sanctuary in our region. They offer a free adoption program for Fire, Police, EMS, and Military personnel to help them mitigate the intense stress they endure in their struggle to protect and serve the people. The also started a service dog training program to offer certified and registered service dogs to veterans in need.  Recently, they also started a coalition of animal rescuers in the area to promote these improvements throughout their region. They call themselves R.O.A.R! and they are the Rally of Animal Rescuers. This group has both domestic and wildlife rescue partners who have committed to sharing their networks and have a yearly awareness event to generate funds for regional year-long advertising campaigns about animal health and welfare issues. Their motto is: TO HELP IS TO HEAL! and they are pouring everything they have into helping the plight of abused, neglected, and abandoned animals.
