The Issue: Overpopulated Shelters Forced to Euthanize Animals

According to data from the Humane Society of the United States, animal shelters across the country care for 6–8 million dogs and cats every year, and euthanize approximately 3–4 million of them. In areas of the Deep South where shelters must often manage especially high volumes of stray cats and dogs, they are often forced to euthanize animals because of a lack of adequate resources and adoptive homes.

The Campaign: Provide Treatment and Care for One Animal

If this Grassroots campaign raises $125, then Animal Rescue Front can fund a heartworm treatment, spaying or neutering, and vaccinations for one rescued animal. Each additional $125 raised will fund a round of treatments for another animal. Animal Rescue Front transports homeless animals from areas with higher-than-average rates of euthanasia and, after providing treatments and helping to resocialize the animals, takes them to areas with higher adoption rates.

Animal Rescue Front

Animal Rescue Front (ARF) was founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a first-responder animal-rescue team that helped save the lives of cats and dogs that survived the disaster. Focusing on one affected community in Mississippi, the organization transported more than 1,100 animals to homes and shelters that wouldn't euthanize them at locations across the country. The effort reduced the kill rate from 80 percent to zero for the first 12 months after the hurricane.

Now, ARF continues to fulfill its mission: “Until there are none save one.” The organization works to prevent companion animals from being euthanized through spay/neuter initiatives, adoption services, and educational programs. Teams in Louisiana and Mississippi also rescue animals directly from shelters that are at full capacity, and then place the animals in foster homes to socialize them and provide medical care and prepare them for adoption.
