Pets Lifeline, a Sonoma resource center that reunites pets with their owners and provides veterinary support, among other things, received a $10,300 grant.
The facility was one of several Bay Area and Central Coast animal sanctuaries to receive $45,000 in awards from the California Animal Welfare Funders Collaborative, a unique model of Annenberg Foundation funders. with the support of Best Friends Animal Society and several other organizations which recently awarded nearly $300,000 in grants to 19 animal welfare groups and foundations.
“California for All Animals is proud to be part of a partnership-focused collaboration with organizations to find community solutions to keep pets in their homes whenever possible,” said Allison Cardona, director of the California State of the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program. “By looking beyond the animal in the shelter to the underlying issues that brought them there, many of which we have perpetuated, we will broaden our reach to the higher goal of prevention.”
Pets Lifeline added improved animal habitats and a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic last year. The capacity of the new facility is 20 dogs and 75 cats.
