United Animal Nations offers grants to help families pay for vet care and temporary boarding
SACRAMENTO, CA (March 28, 2008) – United Animal Nations (UAN) is offering financial assistance grants of up to $500 to help victims of the recent floods in Missouri care for their pets.
UAN’s LifeLine Crisis Relief Grants can help flood victims with expenses for the following:
“When people are displaced from their homes by a flood, they often do not have the resources to pay for vet care for injured pets, or to board their pets temporarily until they make repairs or find a new place to live,” said UAN President and CEO Nicole Forsyth. “Through our LifeLine Crisis Relief Grant program, we can relieve families of the stress of caring for their pets so they can focus on rebuilding their lives.”
UAN will offer qualified individual applicants up to $500 as long as funds are available. UAN’s LifeLine Crisis Relief Grant Program is supported solely by private donations. Individuals can help keep services flowing to flood victims and their pets in need with donations to the Disaster Relief Fund by visiting www.uan.org.
To get eligibility information and apply for a LifeLine Crisis Relief Grant, visit www.uan.org or call (916) 429-2457.
Through its volunteer-driven Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS), UAN has provided emergency animal sheltering and disaster relief services during some of the nation’s most severe disasters. In addition to Hurricane Katrina, UAN also responded to Hurricanes Bret, Dennis and Floyd in 1999; the Midwest floods in 1993, Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and dozens more.
