|Category: Animals & Wildlife
The Foundation, formerly the Doris Day Pet Foundation, is named for actress Doris Day. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and welfare of the community by addressing the problems of pet overpopulation and homeless pets. The Foundation also supports the prevention of cruelty to animals. Funded programs include providing senior citizens with food for their pets, providing information for people caring for horses, supporting in-school humane educational and reading programs, training an assistance dog, and rescuing greyhounds. The Foundation also awards scholarships for veterinary students specializing in shelter medicine. Giving is on a national and international basis. The Foundation became independent from the Doris Day Animal League in 2007 when the League merged with the Humane Society of the United States. Additional information is available on the Web site.
