Thousands of dogs and cats are abandoned every year, and most of them in the summer… because they go on vacation. Left to their own devices, brought to the pound, these animals risk euthanasia within 8 days if their master does not claim them. Their only chance of survival is if they are taken in by shelters which give them the possibility of being adopted. This is why the 30 Million Friends Foundation actively supports more than 200 independent shelters that collect, feed and care for abandoned animals, while waiting to find them a loving family, for life.
” We constantly remind you: an animal is a living and sensitive being, which we adopt responsibly, insists Reha Hutin, President of the 30 Million Friends Foundation. Unfortunately, despite the awareness campaigns of animal protection NGOs, the “coup de coeur” acquisitions of animals result, each summer, in too many abandonments. Also, the shelters, more than ever, need our help to take care of these left behind, before being able to find them an adoptive home. The 30 Million Friends Foundation – 1st partner of shelters – is at their side! »
This summer, the 30 Million Friends Foundation released aid of €1,355,881 to 214 shelters for dogs and cats as well as 13 shelters for equines, spread throughout France.
A transparent method of using funds
The 30 Million Friends Foundation never grants loans or cash assistance to shelters. It pays precise costs – on supporting documents – directly to suppliers and practitioners, which allows it to fully control expenses. The shelters supported by the Foundation are the subject of a very thorough investigation and meet rigorous management and organizational criteria. On average, 79 animals are collected in shelters for 50 places available. Between 50,000 and 80,000 animals are waiting for adoption in shelters
