The Dr. Jane Foundation has partnered with Furry Friends, a local rescue in Jupiter, FL.
Did you know that when you shop at Life’s Abundance, a portion of the profits is set aside to fund our charitable non-profit, The Dr. Jane Foundation? Whether you’re ordering delicious treats for your furry friends, or nutritional supplements for you and your family, every order you place helps to save the lives of homeless, abused and neglected animals across the U.S.
The Dr. Jane Foundation's current partnership is with Furry Friends, our neighbors at our headquarters in Jupiter, Florida. Furry Friends is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide complete care for abused and abandoned dogs and cats. They rescue, provide medical care, rehabilitate, and place pets in forever homes! The Dr. Jane Foundation specifically supports their new Transport Bus Program, Hope On Wheels.
Furry Friends is one of the only shelters in Florida that has a fully-equipped rescue bus. It’s been used to support pets in disasters as well as saving them from euthanasia. In fact, the bus has the capacity to transport over 100 animals per journey!
Furry Friends loads their bus, Hope on Wheels, with dogs and cats to be transported to other rescues.
When Hurricane Ian hit Florida in September 2022, Furry Friends completed one of their largest bus transports, helping a number of affected animals. Check out some of these incredible journeys:
- 15 dogs and 20 cats were taken to a rescue in downtown Chicago to free up kennel space for displaced and lost pets after the hurricane.
- Over 100 animals were transported from damaged areas on Florida’s southwest coast to a staging ground in Jacksonville where they were taken to various shelters throughout the country.
- 50 dogs and cats were moved from storm zones to other shelters in the south and midwest.
In the first 10 months of this program, Furry Friends has been able to move more than 350 dogs and cats to safety, including those impacted by Hurricane Ian. They’re continuing to make a difference for these animals, and in 2023, they hope to double the size of their program and plan for 21 trips with continued support from our foundation.
