HPAN Awards $10,000 for Capital Improvements
For the second year in a row, HPAN has had the ability to offer sponsored rescue organizations the opportunity to bid on grants for capital improvements. This year, we are proud to announce that there were two recipients who were awarded a total of $10K in January. The East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue (ETMHDR) and K9 Lifeline Rescue, Inc. (K9LR) presented proposals covering their needs for sustainable areas of refuge for their rescue animals. ETMHDR, a fairly new organization rescuing mini equines, had a huge need for separate paddocks, dry lots, and adequate shelter. Our grant enabled them to get busy on this worthy goal. K9LR had already built “The Dog House,” where all of their rescued dogs live with a caretaker, but they had a goal to add on to the house an area for indoor play, meet & greets, dog training/socialization, etc. Our grant enabled them to finish The Dog House.
Both of these fine rescue organizations are doing an excellent job saving animals in dire need. We are happy to be partners in their mission.
