Grantwriting for Animals: Shelter Pets

Approximately  2.7 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs - about one every 11  seconds - are euthanized in U.S. shelters each year. This class partners with a local no-kill animal shelter to further its goals of eliminating the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy or treatable companion animals in the community and finding them permanent, loving homes.
