Summit-based Home for Good Dog Rescue (HFGDR) is now able to give more puppies and dogs their second chance as a result of a $5,000 grant provided by the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®). Funds from this grant will go towards HFGDR’s transport program, which relocates puppies and dogs from shelters with a higher supply of dogs than there is demand to areas where those at-risk dogs can find their forever homes.
“Home for Good Dog Rescue travels to shelters in the south where dogs and puppies are at risk of euthanasia and brings them to New Jersey where the breeds are highly desirable,” says Home for Good Co-Founder Richard Errico, “The conditions at these overcrowded shelters can be shocking to those who have never been inside of one before. It is clear that they are desperate for help in getting these animals out of their cages and into loving homes. Each transport we do confirms how important our transport and placement work is. Thanks to this grant, we will be able to transport more innocent puppies and dogs to safety. We are so grateful to the ASPCA® for supporting our efforts and providing us with the funds to continue on our life-saving mission.”
Since their inception in August 2010, HFGDR has adopted more than 2,000 animals to loving homes for good.
“Transport programs can be a critical step in saving the lives of more dogs and puppies, by taking breeds from shelters who are struggling to place them and bringing them to shelters where adopters are searching for that specific breed,” says Jill Van Tuyl, Community Initiatives Director of New Jersey at the ASPCA®. “The ASPCA® is pleased to provide this grant to Home for Good Dog Rescue so that they may continue their work in simply giving these at-risk puppies a life-saving ride.”
