Boxer puppy Bryn found her forever home thanks to a transport grant.

Your donation will benefit homeless pets nationwide like Bryn, a 6-week-old Boxer mix who found her forever home thanks to a transport grant from the Foundation and our partner, Bissell.

The grant, awarded to the Humane Society of Jefferson County in Tennessee, allowed the shelter to transport 72 dogs to less-crowded shelters in three months, giving those dogs a better opportunity to be adopted.

Humane Society of Jefferson County shelter manager Melissa Enck wrote us: “I wanted to say how much this has helped us out. More rescues are working with us, the vets are cutting us great deals on the animals going out and the public once again is supporting us! Our euthanasia rate is the lowest it’s ever been. For the first time we have a functional transport fund! Thank you so much; this has really saved a lot of pets and will continue to do so.”

Your gift will help us continue to our work of saving homeless pets nationwide. Plus, if you make your donation by 5 p.m. ET, your loved one will receive an email TODAY with photos and details about how your gift will go to good use. (Make sure to include the recipient’s email address at checkout.)

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Foundation. Thank you for all you do in the name of puppy love!
