Rachael Ray Save Them All Grant Awarded to AHS.
The Arizona Humane Society, is pleased to be the recipient of a Rachael Ray Save Them All grant from Best Friends Animal Society for its Project Reachout Program.
Project Reachout, AHS’ partner assistance program, is a lifesaving program that transfers at-risk pets from other animal welfare organizations, including Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, when space on AHS adoption floors allow.
“This past year, AHS was able to transfer in 1012 pets, a 22% percent increase over the previous year through Project Reachout,” said Dr. Steven Hansen, AHS President and CEO. “This generous grant from Best Friends Animal Society allows AHS to continue saving even more lives like Montgomery, Mako and Homer who spent a total of 215 days at a partner shelter before coming to AHS where each of them got adopted within three days!”
AHS is an active partner in Best Friends Network, which offers help and support to animal rescue groups and shelters that save lives in their communities. The Rachael Ray Save Them All Grants is a grant program, administered by Best Friends and funded by The Rachael Ray Foundation™, which provides grants to shelters for euthanasia reduction initiatives. The Rachael Ray Foundation helps animals in need and is funded by a portion of proceeds from each sale of Rachael’s pet food, Nutrish®.
