BENEFITING: LOST-A-PET FOUNDATION
Every year, over five million missing pets end up in U.S. shelters. 90% will never see their homes again.
With a national average owner reclaim rate of just 20% for dogs and 2% for cats, progressive shelter leaders are asking, "What are we doing that isn't working, and how can we improve?"
Missing Pet Partnership is a national nonprofit dedicated to lost pet prevention and recovery (LPPR). Our Mission Reunite animal shelter initiative targets progressive agencies that want to create or improve their LPPR programs. With a combination of online and in-person consultation and training, a fully implemented Mission Reunite program is proven to increase owner reclaim, decrease intake, and decrease euthanasia.
The goal of this fundraiser is to generate enough money to provide scholarships for those shelters interested in being a part of this initiative but who otherwise would not be able to to participate due to budget constraints.
