Seattle, WA, March 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A $5,000 grant from GreaterGood.org went to Rescue Bank to help move donated pet food to Louisville, Kentucky. Warehoused at No Kill Louisville, approximately 27,000 pounds of animal food was then distributed to the communities hit by the March 2 tornadoes. The food will be used by local rescue groups and pet owners currently short of supplies.
The grant was made possible by the “2012 Tornado Strikes - Help Animals Now” Gift That Gives More featured at The Animal Rescue Site and other GreaterGood Network websites.
Rescue Bank helps local shelters and rescue groups across the country benefit from pet food donations from manufacturers and major retailers by coordinating large scale movement of supplies as well as distribution.
The 501c3 nonprofit, based in Texas, became a “Click” beneficiary of The Animal Rescue Site in early 2011 and has used this funding to expand its services beyond the Southwest. By November, Rescue Bank had distributed more than two million lbs of pet food to twenty-seven different states and almost 1,000 animal welfare organizations. More information about how groups can apply to receive help from Rescue Bank can be found at www.rescuebank.org.
The Animal Rescue Site's “Click Here To Give” purple homepage button provides a simple, fast free way to help animal charities. Visitors can click daily to display a series of ads and 100% of the donations from sponsoring advertisers are donated to Petfinder.com Foundation, Rescue Bank, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Fund for Animals, North Shore Animal League America, and other worthy groups selected by GreaterGood.org.
Additional funding for animal charities is provided through shopping at The Animal Rescue Site store (http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/store) or donations received through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program.
Funding from The Animal Rescue Site and other GreaterGood Network websites is distributed by the independent 501(c)3 GreaterGood.org.
