Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter (PAAS) is proud to announce
that it was awarded the Pets for Life Mentorship and Training program grant to
provide direct, hands-on community outreach in Vinita. The program is sponsored
by The Humane Society of the United States.
“PAAS thanks The Humane Society of the United States for their generous
support,” said Kay Stout, director. “With the help of this grant and training, we will
make a real and lasting difference for people and pets in underserved areas in
Vinita.”
“PAAS has demonstrated an impressive initiative to bring pet care resources and
services that are often out of reach to people and pets in Vinita,” said Amanda
Arrington, director for The HSUS’ Pets for Life program. “The Humane Society of
the United States is delighted to help PAAS accomplish its mission with this well-deserved
grant and training.”
With an estimated 23 million pets living in poverty with their people in the United
States, Pets for Life addresses the critical lack of accessible and affordable animal
welfare services, resources and information for people and pets in underserved
Communities.
“The Pets for Life grant PAAS received from The HSUS brings a comprehensive
program to Vinita,” Stout said. “The goal is to work with Vinita residents so they
can keep their pets at home.”
Services available through the Pets for Life grant include spay and neuter of all
pets, assistance with vaccinations and options to keep dogs safe, and within the
law, while they are outside.
“PAAS is proud to be selected for this effective community outreach membership
and training program,” Stout said.
