The Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Project was recently established by the ASPCA with a goal to prepare shelter animals in overcrowded facilities for transport to area rescue groups, foster homes or other shelters in hopes of improving their chances for adoption. The foundation has a goal of saving more than 16,000 dogs by May 2013, with subsidies applied to participating shelters for each dog transferred. Subsidies can be used for fueling transport vehicles, crates, veterinary services and networking necessities. ASPCA President & CEO Ed Sayres says, “We are hoping the project will inspire other organizations to look beyond the walls of their facilities for new collaborations and partnerships.” The project currently has a waiting list.
