Pets Add Life winning video – It will make you laugh all day

Winning video for The American Pet Products Association‘s non-profit public awareness campaign, Pets Add Life received the 2012 “Best Viral Video” Strategic Video Award for its “Pet Interviews: Guinea Pig” video.

“We are so excited to receive this award,” Bob Vetere, president and CEO of APPA. “Our main goal with the ‘Pet Interviews’ video series and the campaign as a whole is to promote multiple pet ownership and we could not be happier to see what a huge success the series has become.”

The Strategic Video Awards were created for companies and organizations that use video to communicate for corporations, associations, non-profits, public institutions, colleges and universities, PR firms and ad agencies, and custom publishers. Video submissions are judged by expert practitioners and are evaluated based on how thoroughly they have met communication objectives. One winner, along with honorable mentions, is awarded in each category.

Featuring “talking” animals in a series of videos to help promote multiple pet ownership, PAL’s ‘Pet Interviews’ videos are produced by the creator of the wildly popular ‘Ultimate Dog Tease’ YouTube hit, Andrew Grantham. Grantham’s videos have received more than 100 million views and were named No. 2 on YouTube’s Top 10 videos of 2011.

Founded by APPA, the non-profit PAL campaign is designed to demonstrate the joys and benefits of responsible pet ownership and encourage increased animal adoption.

In Honor Poem – Please read and share

No matter how much you do; whether you rescue, foster, give hours, a can of food or share this, THANK YOU!

In Honor of those who rescue and support them.


My job is to assist God’s creatures.

I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs.

I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning or selection.

I have bought dog food with my last dime.

I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand.

I have hugged someone vicious and afraid.

I have fallen in love a thousand times.

And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times to count.

I have Animal Friends and friends who have animal friends.

I don’t often use the word “pet”.

I notice those lost at the road side and my heart aches.

I will hand raise a field mouse and make friends with a vulture.

I know of no creature unworthy of my time.

I want to live forever if there aren’t animals in Heaven, but I believe there are.

Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind?

Some may think we are masters of the animals, but the animals have mastered themselves…something people still haven’t learned.

War and abuse make me hurt for the world, but a rescue that makes the news  gives me hope for mankind.

We are a quiet but determined army and we are making a difference every day.

There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan, nothing more rewarding than saving a life, no higher recognition than watching them thrive.

There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play who, only days ago, was too weak  to eat.

By the love of those who I’ve been privileged to rescue, I have been rescued.

I know what true unconditional love really is, for I’ve seen it shining in the eyes  of so many, grateful for so little.

I am an Animal Rescuer.

My work is never done.

My home is never quiet.

My wallet is always empty, but my heart is always full.

 ~Author Unknown

ASPCA Names The Animal Foundation Partner in Dog Rescue Project

ASPCA Names The Animal Foundation a Participant in The Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project

New program will help thousands of dogs and puppies find loving homes
through relocation from overcrowded shelters

LAS VEGAS, NEV. — The Animal Foundation today announced that it has been selected by the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to participate in The Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project, a new $1 million initiative that will fund much-needed treatments and services for shelter dogs and puppies at municipal animal sheltering organizations, ultimately preparing them for transport from overcrowded shelters to give them the best chance of finding permanent, loving homes. The project is being made possible thanks to a generous donation from Mrs. Carroll Petrie, a respected international philanthropist.

“We are so excited to be selected as a Petrie Foundation participant,” said Christine Robinson, Executive Director of The Animal Foundation. “The funds we receive will go a long way in finding animals who have ended up in our care through no fault of their own their forever homes.”

The Animal Foundation will use funds from the Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project to expand its rescue department and ultimately place more animals with its local and regional rescue partners. In 2012, The Animal Foundation placed 1,776 dogs with rescue partners (a more than 19% increase over 2011), and plans to increase placements in 2013 with assistance from the Petrie Foundation.

The ASPCA, through The Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project, aims to save 16,600 dogs through a per dog or puppy subsidy for each animal transferred out through the following types of programs:
• Transfer to rescue groups;
• Transfer to other shelters;
• Adoptions through “Foster Adoption Ambassador” programs; or
• Adoptions through permanent off-site partner locations.

The subsidy per dog or puppy can be used for anything from crates and gasoline purchases for transport vehicles to “make-ready” veterinary services for the dogs (i.e. spay/neuter, health certificates, vaccines) that will prepare them to leave the shelter. The subsidy will only apply to lives saved above and beyond each participating groups previous year’s numbers.
For more information about The Animal Foundation, please visit www.animalfoundation.com. To provide a temporary home for an animal not yet ready to be adopted, consider becoming a foster parent. Email [email protected] for more information.

The Animal Foundation is a private, non-profit, multi-service agency dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals in the Las Vegas Valley. To promote the humane treatment of animals, The Animal Foundation operates the Valley’s largest open-admission shelter (Lied Animal Shelter), lost and found services, foster home and adoption services, a low-cost spay and neuter clinic and vaccination clinics, and community education. To learn more about The Animal Foundation or view adoptable pets online, visit animalfoundation.com and facebook.com/animalfoundation.

Nonprofit The Animal Foundation, 655 N. Mojave Road, one of Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelters and pet adoption centers, is seeking donations of new and gently used linens, including: towels, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, T-shirts and sweatshirts.

During summer, The Animal Foundation receives more than 100 animals per day.

Donated linens are used to make the animals more comfortable and to keep the young and underweight animals warm.

Due to the cleaning procedures for donated linens, items must be washed in a high bleach-to-water concentration, which breaks down materials quickly.

Additionally, once an item has been torn, it cannot be used again. Items with stuffing (comforters, pillows, dog beds, etc.) can only be used once as they cannot be completely disinfected.

Linens can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at the shelter. For more information, visit animalfoundation.com.
