The Animal Foundation Receives Grant from PetSmart Charities to Help More Shelter Pets Find Homes in Las Vegas






LAS VEGASThe Animal Foundation has received a grant from PetSmart Charities to help prepare more shelter pets in Las Vegas to find loving homes. With the help of this grant, The Animal Foundation will provide medical care and treatment to get animals ready for adoption, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, medications, and vet services—all vital to ensure that the animals are ready to thrive in their forever homes, while helping to control animal overpopulation issues in the community, as well.


“This PetSmart Charities grant will ensure pets are ready for happy lives as soon as they’re adopted,” said Daryl Sprague, Chief Development and Marketing Officer of The Animal Foundation. “Our mission is to save the lives of all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley, and this grant helps us make even more progress toward that goal.” 

“We’re proud to support The Animal Foundation in its efforts to prepare shelter pets for adoption,” said Sophie Faust, adoption grants manager at PetSmart Charities. “Thanks to this work, thousands of pets will receive vital care, along with the best chance of finding loving homes.”


Since 1994, through its partnership with nearly 4,000 humane societies, SPCAs and pet rescues across North America, PetSmart Charities has helped more than 9 million pets to find loving homes via its in-store adoption program in over 1,650 PetSmart® stores. The leading funder of animal welfare has also donated nearly $400 million to positively impact communities, to help preserve families, to improve access to veterinary care and to connect people and pets through initiatives like this with The Animal Foundation.
