High Hopes® for Pets Foundation awards $500 grants
OCTOBER 14, 2012
The High Hopes® for Pets Foundation has awarded $500 grants to Reach Out Rescue and One Tail at a Time rescue groups to help support all the great work they do helping homeless pets.
A big THANK YOU to all our wonderful customers who make the Foundation’s grants possible through your purchase of High Hopes®‘ all-natural treats….you and your doggies make it all possible!
Below is more detail about the exceptional work these organizations do. Please help spread the word! High Hopes® will be doubling the donation to the Foundation during the months of November and December, and The Foundation will be awarding more grants in January – so be sure to let deserving animal care organizations know the deadline for application will be December 28, 2012.
Reach Out Rescue (ROR) was founded in 2005 and to date has rescued over 1,024 dogs and cats. ROR rescues dogs and cats from high-kill shelters and otherwise abusive situations and helps to socialize “shy” pets on their way to a forever home. Seeing the faces of their rescues light up when going to their new homes never gets old, and is what keeps the fires burning for their staff of volunteers.

One Tail at A Time is a no-kill all breed dog rescue whose mission is to help lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area. One Tail at a Time also helps increase the awareness for the humane treatment of companion animals through educational programs such as Lunch Buddies and Court Case Dog Collaboration. One Tail at A Time offers extensive adopter benefits and significant support for their foster home community. To learn more about One Tail’s programs, or to adopt, foster or volunteer, visit them at www.onetail.org.
We’re so inspired by the work that these organizations do, and are certain that the grants will be well used to help them continue to accomplish their objectives. These are the 10th and 11th grants given by the Foundation since September 2011.
