)-- FoEverMeow Awarded Grant from Best Friends Animal Society®.
Support for Kitten Nursery will save the lives of underage kittens in Coachella Valley shelters and help accelerate the goals of NoKillCV.
ForEverMeow is pleased to have received a grant from Best Friends Animal Society for its Kitten Nursery to help save the lives of underage kittens in Coachella Valley.
ForEverMeow participates in Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program offering financial and technical support to shelters, rescue groups, and other grassroots animal welfare organizations saving lives in their communities.
“This grant allows us to protect the most vulnerable kittens that enter our shelters,” said Leigh Kirk, President and Co-Founder of ForEverMeow. “Our goal will be to rescue and adopt out 150 kittens to loving families. We appreciate the support of Best Friends Animal Society in making ForEverMeow Kitten Nursery possible and moving us towards a NoKill community in Coachella Valley.”
Liz Finch, senior manager of Best Friends’ National Programs, added, “This grant project aims to increase the number of animals safely leaving local shelters. It’s in alignment with Best Friends’ determination to Save Them All®.” Every day, more than 9,000 pets are killed in shelters across America simply because they don’t have homes. Best Friends Animal Society and its No More Homeless Pets Network partners, including ForEverMeow, are committed to saving them.
ForEverMeow works in close collaboration with Riverside County Department of Animal Services and Palm Springs Animal Shelter.
“We are extremely excited to partner with ForEverMeow and are thrilled at the ability to save more lives!” noted Frank Corvino, Deputy Director, RCDAS and Co-Chair of NoKillCV. Dr. Shayda Akamhi, Director of Palm Springs Animal Shelter and Co-Chair of NoKillCV added, “Coachella Valley needs a leading-edge kitten nursery like this, and we are proud that it is here to serve the whole community and protect these vulnerable kittens.”
