BENEFITING: BUDDY FOUNDATION
Sadly, 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized each year, the equivalent of 575 every hour. Buddy seeks to reduce that number. We will continue our mission of saving those that cannot fend for themselves, those without a voice, and those who depend on the good will of humanity for their basic needs.
Buddy also wants to change the perception of an animal shelter. Here, at our new location in Arlington Heights, IL, we provide a safe haven for these special creatures. Each animal is given the one-on-one attention it deserves. The shelter allows Buddy the ability to evaluate each animal’s needs and find a perfect home for as many as possible. If just the right home cannot be found, our animals will stay with us as long as they live. We want our sanctuary to be thought of as a place of peace.
