These 4 Organizations Are Finding Homeless Animals Forever Homes

Animals and humans are more alike than you may think, but often animals are not well respected. Sometimes they are abandoned, hurt, or abused. Thankfully, there are organizations to help. These four organizations create safe environments for all types of animals, they house and nurture these fun-loving creatures, and make a difference in their lives.


1. The Wildcat Sanctuary

The Wildcat Sanctuary was founded in 1999. This shelter is a non-profit, no kill rescue facility. The animals that enter the facility are typically animals that were privately owned, abandoned, neglected, or abused. Tammy Thies, founder of the sanctuary makes sure that these wildcats are nurtured, healthy, and feel safe.

2. Pet Rescue USA

Pet Rescue is an organization that devotes their time to shelter dogs and teaches them family training skills in order to be adopted. Besides training these pets, they make sure their dogs end up in a safe and friendly permanent home.

3. Lucky Tails

Even though she's 13 years old, Clair Fraise wants to make a change. Her ultimate dream is to open one of the world's largest dog sanctuaries... and she's almost there. Lucky Tails is a non-profit organization that shelters homeless dogs through foster homes, until they can be fully adopted.

4. Pima Animal Care Center and Catalina Springs Memory Care Center Partnership

Neonatal kittens are newborn kittens, who require 24-hour care. These kittens are often a big problem for shelters because they require constant contact that these shelters can not provide. If shelters can't find foster homes for these kittens they can become homeless, sick or even die. Thanks to the help of elderly care home, Catalina Springs Memory Care, these kittens now have a place to live with people who can provide them with the love and care they need to survive and grow into well-socialized cats. This set-up does not only help the kittens, but it helps the seniors as well. Many of these seniors have forms of dementia and Alzheimer's disease, but their contact with these kittens not only brings them joy, but it helps elicit past memories.

These four organizations are prime examples of how we all can do a little extra to ensure these friendly creatures are given the love and care they need and deserve.

Tennis is a popular and fun pastime, in that it requires mental focus and athletic ability.

Leaders of the Junior Tennis Champion Center (JTCC) recognized this cost challenge, and decided to do something to change it. In 2009, JTCC launched a Community Outreach initiative, with the goal of introducing underserved kids in Prince George's County, MD, and Washington, DC to tennis.
