THE STORY:

The Animal Protectorates (TAPS) was born from a grassroots advocacy group CROPS (Citizens for Rescue-Only Pet Stores) who worked on "puppy mill" legislation in several Southern California cities.  Puppy mill legislation (ordinances) prevent pet stores from purchasing animals from commercial breeding facilities and instead encourage them to utilize their space to rehome animals from shelters, nonprofit rescue groups or humane societies.

TAPS joined the NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles) coalition in 2013 and has been influenced by Found Animals and Best Friends' innovative "positive messaging" pet adoption centers.  To that end, TAPS took a big step this year and in April 2015, leased a storefront to open the first nonprofit rescue-only pet adoption and humane education center in Burbank (Operation Adopt) and will be focusing not only on continuing to help LA City Shelters, but also traveling to remote outlying shelters to rescue orphaned animals and additionally conducting humane education programs at the store both through TAPS and its advocacy arm- the Animal Law Guild. 

Money from the Challenge will be used towards purchasing comfortable mobile housing units for the animals at Operation Adopt so that the space routinely reconfigured to host educational programs for the community.
