For the month of June 2011, Beading Divas to the Rescue is proud to fund-raise for PACC Partners.
PACC Partners is an independent 501(c)3 charitable foundation dedicated to raising much needed funds to support the animals and outreach programs at Pima Animal Care Center in an effort to end euthanasia of adoptable companion animals in Pima County.
Since PACC Partners inception in mid 2009, they have been committed to providing the animals at Pima Animal Care Center supplies and items to enhance their lives and overall experience while being sheltered. Some of the exciting shelter enhancements are to offer the animals at PACC kennel enrichment aids such as Kongs and other interactive toys, martingale leashes and collar for all of the dog walkers to safely take each dog out for their daily walk.
PACC Partners also provides medical rehabilitation which is designed to assist in funding minor procedures for animals who are on the rescue list at PACC in order to make them adoptable. In the past year PACC Partners has funded almost $3,000 for dentals, minor surgeries, and wound repair which has enabled over 15 animals to be placed up for general adoption and to be adopted out at PACC into permanent loving homes.
PACC Partners also sponsored Pit Bull Spay and Neuter services this year and has already funded over 60 free sterilizations for low income families in need in an effort to reduce the communities over population problem.
Beading Divas to the Rescue bracelet sales will sponsor the “Train to Adopt” program. Train to Adopt was established in January 2011 when PACC Partners hired a full time trainer to work with some of the long term or problematic dogs at PACC in an effort to train them prior to adoption therefore making the dogs more adoptable. To date this program has been a huge success and has allowed many dogs the opportunity to show newly learned manners and find their forever homes.
