WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, April 6, 2020 — American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, today announced that Animal Aid USA received a grant from American Humane’s Feed the Hungry fund. Located in Williamstown, New Jersey, Animal Aid USA relocates animals from kill-shelters to loving homes via its large network of rescue groups and volunteers.
“In these very trying times, it’s so comforting to know that American Humane is there to back us and help us feed the homeless, abandoned and neglected animals that we rescue on a monthly basis,” said Karen Talbot, founder of Animal Aid USA. “A huge thank you goes out to American Humane for including us in the Feed the Hungry campaign.”
Animal Aid USA was selected as a recipient of the grant due to its success in changing the lives of shelter animals. Through a rescue and relocation model, Animal Aid USA saves dogs that are about to be euthanized and provides them with all necessary veterinary treatment including vaccines, spay/neuter and heartworm treatment. Once the dogs are healthy and ready to be adopted, they are transported to receiving rescues or private adopters. On average, Animal Aid USA rescues over 300 dogs each month.
