ANIMAL WELFARE

ANIMAL WELFARE – SPONSORED BY KONG

  • APPALACHIAN BEAR RESCUE (TOWNSEND, TN)

    Appalachian Bear Rescue (ABR) cares for orphaned and injured black bear cubs for return to their natural wild habitat; increases public awareness about coexisting with black bears; and studies all aspects of returning cubs to the wild. Each year, young black bears are injured or orphaned and in need of care. ABR works with state and federal wildlife agencies to rescue these bears, care for them with minimal human contact, and return them to live back in the wild where they belong. Over 26 years, ABR has cared for over 360 young bears from nine states and the National Park Service. ABR serves as Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's official BearWise Tennessee partner, working in Tennessee communities to keep people and bears safe.

  • PITIFUL PAWS RESCUE (CHESAPEAKE, OH)

    The focus of Pitiful Paws Rescue is to rescue animals in need; to rehabilitate them, whether physically or mentally; and to help them find families to call their own. Every animal deserves a chance regardless of breed, age or medical status. Pitiful Paws Rescue primarily serves West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky and often assists law enforcement and other agencies with large scale hoarding/neglect cases. Pitiful Paws Rescue assists with disaster relief, evacuation efforts and emergency rescues in extreme heat/cold weather. They frequently pull from rural shelters with no resources and help counties that do not have shelters. They offer a wellness program with free vaccinations, flea/tick prevention and basic care. Pitiful Paws Rescue offers housing for animals whose families are in domestic violence shelters, drug/alcohol rehab facilities or are experiencing homelessness.

  • RUFF HAVEN CRISIS SHELTERING (SALT LAKE CITY, UT)

    Ruff Haven's mission is to provide a temporary haven for companion animals in order to keep pets and their people together in times of crisis, to increase pet retention and to decrease the number of animals entering the shelter system. They are Utah's only organization solely dedicated to providing these services. Their programs include temporary crisis sheltering, community wellness clinics and vaccines, outreach to homeless encampments, payment of housing and shelter fees, grooming and more. Ruff Haven’s program is volunteer-based, and all services are free. They partner with the state's animal welfare organizations, as well as many human welfare organizations to provide wraparound services. This year, Ruff Haven was instrumental in passing legislation that allows pets to be included in domestic violence protective orders, making Utah the 37th state to allow this.

  • CHARLESTON ANIMAL SOCIETY (NORTH CHARLESTON, SC)

    For 148 years, Charleston Animal Society (CAS) has prevented cruelty to animals and, for the past decade, has been South Carolina’s top-rated charitable organization. From having built the first no-kill community in the southeast to building the first no-kill state across the entire southern U.S., CAS is an international model for lifesaving success through focus, strategy and determination. As a leading emergency responder for hurricanes, flooding and large-scale animal cruelty operations, CAS's workforce of 85 employees and 2,400 volunteers care for and rescue up to 20,000 animals annually. From finding families for homeless animals, to preventing unwanted litters, to guiding children to become compassionate toward animals, to fighting cruelty wherever it exists, the Animal Society’s mantra is “solving problems, not just reacting to them.”

  • THE BARNYARD SANCTUARY (COLUMBIA, NJ)

    The Barnyard Sanctuary's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home farm animals that are displaced, abused or whose caregivers are experiencing hardships, by providing them with a safe, loving and nurturing home. The Barnyard Sanctuary facilitates adoption to families who can provide a forever home. For animals who require special care, The Barnyard Sanctuary will provide a haven for the natural lifetime of the animal. Since opening their doors in November of 2010, the Barnyard Sanctuary has saved the lives of over 3,000 farm animals. Today, approximately 300 farm animals call the Barnyard Sanctuary home. They offer an extensive array of community-based programs, which they will also implement once their larger forever home is secured.
