The Animal Coalition of Delaware County has received a $1,000 Operation Grant from the PEDIGREE Foundation in partnership with Petfinder Foundation. ACDC is one of only 150 shelters and rescue groups nationwide to receive a grant.
Stef Swanton, ACDC’s president, says, “We’re thrilled to be one of the few organizations nationwide to receive this money. It shows that the dedication of our all-volunteer staff has paid off!” ACDC has placed 78 dogs, rabbits, and cats in their forever homes this year.
PEDIGREE Foundation Operation Grants assist in funding basic operation costs like– facility and structural, medical, transportation, spay and neuter–to help make dogs more adoptable.
Toni Morgan, Petfinder Foundation program director, said that such grants are often the most difficult for shelters to secure. “Grants like these from PEDIGREE Foundation for basic needs are particularly helpful right now when animal welfare groups are facing tough economic realities like the rest of us.”
“We believe that all dogs deserve to be loved and cared for,” said Debra Fair, PEDIGREE Foundation president. “Our partnership with Petfinder Foundation, allows us to make the greatest difference in the animal shelter community through these operational grants.”
