Petco Foundation grants $20,000 to Shoreline's Seattle Area Feline Rescue

Thursday, June 27, 2019

Seattle Area Feline Rescue (SAFe Rescue) announced it has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its foster program by training and recruiting foster volunteers that can provide temporary shelter for homeless cats and kittens. 

The Petco Foundation investment will help save more lives by making it possible to grow and strengthen SAFe Rescue’s foster volunteer program. 

By further recruiting, training, and supporting fosters, the rescue can empower them to have a bigger impact for the most at-risk populations of cats.

“We know that developing and expanding our foster program is key to our continued growth, and we are deeply thankful that support from the Petco Foundation allows us to give these incredibly important volunteers the support and training they need to sustain this lifesaving work,” said Emily Sprong, Executive Director at SAFe Rescue.

Seattle Area Feline Rescue is a nonprofit organization that takes in homeless felines from the Puget Sound region and beyond and finds them loving families. 

Seattle Area Feline Rescue opened its Shoreline Adoption Center in 2014 and has since grown to be one of the largest feline-specific rescues in the country. 

Last year, SAFe Rescue found homes for 1,740 cats and kittens.

Seattle Area Feline Rescue is a non-profit, no-kill organization located on the border of Seattle and Shoreline, at 14717 Aurora Ave. N, Shoreline 98133. (501c3 #91-2041961.) 

SAFe Rescue takes in homeless cats and kittens, gives them the care they need to recover, and finds them loving homes. 

Over 1,700 felines, including seniors and special needs cats, find homes here each year as people in search of new friends visit our welcoming storefront Adoption Center. An extensive network of community volunteers and foster families helps the rescue carry out its mission and save more lives.

At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $250 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen.

With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. 

Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than six million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started.
