Throughout the remainder of August, we will be witnessing an influx of manila envelopes in our mailroom. The reason is that the end of August marks the deadline for applications for our annual Rescue Grant program. Since establishing the program in 2006, we have seen the number of applications grow steadily each year. This tells us not only that interest in the program has grown, but that the need for support has never been greater among rescue, wildlife sanctuaries and other deserving organizations. At the end of the day, we’re happy to do our part and only wish we could do more.
If you are involved with a rescue, shelter, or wildlife rehab organization or know someone who is, please be sure to share our information about the 2012 Oxbow Rescue Grants. This year, we will be awarding nearly $20,000 in cash and product to a number of deserving organizations all over the United States and Canada. To learn more or apply, click here. Meanwhile, thanks to rescue organizations everywhere for the selfless work they perform on behalf of animals.
