Rescue Success for Found Animals

January 18, 2013 by Tails Magazine in Home, News with 0 Comments

We want to congratulate Found Animals Foundation—the Los Angeles based animal welfare organization recently announced that their holiday campaign, “Twelve Pets of Christmas” helped place over 3,100 animals in forever homes!

Here’s what they had to say:

The program, which began on December 1st and ran through December 23rd, 2012, highlighted 12 categories of pets that are often overlooked in shelters. The goal was to find forever homes for 1,250 animals, a total which was surpassed by more than 250%. Some shelters, such as Long Beach Animal Care Services, saw a 400% increase in December 2012 adoptions over the same period last year.

“The ‘Twelve Pets of Christmas’ promotion has been Found Animals’ most successful adoption initiative in the history of the organization,” said Found Animals Executive Director Aimee Gilbreath. “It is gratifying to know that we more than doubled our goal in the first year of the program, a testament to the hard work of the entire animal welfare community in Los Angeles.”

The ‘Twelve Pets of Christmas’ promotion included animals in the following categories: adult cats, big dogs (over 40 lbs.), black pets, Pit Bull mixes, pets with medical needs, senior pets, overweight pets, bonded pairs, shy pets, adult Chihuahua/Chihuahua mixes (excluding puppies), and exotics (birds, reptiles, etc.).

Additional support from Best Friends Animal Society and Los Angeles Animal Services enabled Found Animals to meet and well exceed the program’s goals.

“With the help of Best Friends and LA Animal Services, ‘Twelve Pets of Christmas’ was a collective effort that ultimately saved over 3,100 lives,” added Gilbreath.
