Healthy Paws Awards the NonProfits Homeless Pet Program with a $50,000 Grant

Healthy Paws Pet Insurance and Foundation is proud to support the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SF SPCA), with a $50,000 grant to help end animal abandonment in San Francisco by the year 2020.

As the largest animal welfare organization on the West Coast and founders of the No-Kill movement, the SF SPCA has always been at the forefront of animal welfare. Their Vision 2020 initiative identifies the root causes of pet homelessness—overpopulation, barriers to veterinary care, pet behavior issues—and provides corresponding programs, services, and education to address these issues. The grant from Healthy Paws will directly facilitate charitable medical care, behavioral training, and pet health- and pet parenthood-education.

“On behalf of our pet-passionate customers, we are thrilled to support SF SPCA’s programs to keep animals healthy and in their homes,” says Healthy Paws Pet Insurance and Foundation co-founder Rob Jackson. “Healthy Paws began with the vision to help homeless pets and that work remains core to our mission today. We’re excited to partner with an organization that has a proven track record of impactful work in this area.”

“We’re so grateful to have Healthy Paws support our lifesaving work,” said Cynthia Kopec, Chief Operating Officer at the SF SPCA. “Giving pet guardians the tools to keep their pets happy and healthy is central to the missions of both the SF SPCA and Healthy Paws, and the first step in preventing animal abandonment.”

The grant was made possible through Healthy Paws’ Every Quote Gives Hope program, where every free quote for pet health insurance results in a donation toward medical care for homeless pets. The Healthy Paws Foundation gives cash grants to organizations for life-saving vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and advanced medical treatments. By joining forces with the SF SPCA, Healthy Paws can impact the lives of pets more than ever before.
