We are so excited to be posting all of the cutest pet submissions on Monday. But before we start with the contagious “awwwww”ing, we wanted to share a bit about G.R.A.S.P. who we are supporting through this contest. Here are some quick points about this awesome organization!
- G.R.A.S.P., Inc. (Greece Residents Assisting Stray Pets) is a nonprofit pet rescue and adoption organization that gives animals, primarily those picked up by Greece Animal Control, a second chance for a safe, happy and healthy life.
- Their mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets in Greece by decreasing dog and cat reproduction, promoting responsible pet ownership, and placing homeless dogs and cats into compatible, loving, permanent homes.
- They are a foster based organization, and do not have a shelter. The number of pets they can save is directly dependent upon the number of available fosters.
- In 2013 alone, 334 cats and 84 dogs were adopted.
- G.R.A.S.P. has many volunteer opportunities. Interested in helping with or coordinating a fundraiser? Fostering? Transporting? Working at Adoption Events? Welcoming new volunteers? Volunteers are the life-blood of GRASP and are provided training and guidance as needed. Volunteers contribute varying amounts of time, energy and skills
