Common Sense for Animals Receives $7500 From Petco Love
Common Sense for Animals is honored to receive a $7,500 investment from Petco Love, formerly known as the Petco Foundation, to support the construction of our new shelter. For 30 years CSA has been dedicated to helping animals to find loving homes and helping others to see how all animals are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity. In our current shelter we help between 1,200 and 1500 rescue animals a year, and with our Petco Love’s help in constructing our new shelter we will be able to double our capacity.
The grant investment is part of the Petco Foundation’s recent distribution of more than $13 million to animal welfare organizations nationwide. In addition, the Petco Foundation distributed $1 million in emergency product and cash donations to partner organizations facing the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis and put out a national call to mobilize animal lovers to take action and Pledge to Save Pet Lives.
Following two years of Covid delays, CSA has our site plans and variances approved by Franklin Township with a retained architect working on design details. Found Dr. Robert Blease is donating two commercial lots adjacent to our current animal shelter so CSA can own its property outright. CSA will have complete control of its own destiny and be fully managed in a new facility by our Board of Trustees. With expanded capacity, we can also expand our Southern Rescue program to rescue animals from high kill shelters and give them the chance to find their forever home.
