We are pleased to announce our first Pet Project rescue partner, Mr. Bones & Co! We will be sponsoring dogs in their amazing One Lucky Pup program!
Founded in 2013, Mr. Bones & Co., is an all-volunteer based 501(c)3 animal welfare non-profit supporting animal rescue and advocacy in our own backyard of New York City, as well as on a national and global level. Our main function is canine rescue, via One Lucky Pup, our signature rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program. While we emphasize Pit Bull rescue we accept all breeds into our program. OLP specializes in dogs facing extraordinary challenges, whether it be extensive emergency veterinary care/surgery, unfair breed discrimination or those languishing in municipal shelters with behavioral issues that make them harder to place. Our experience in the deepest of these rescue trenches gives us keen insight into understanding the challenges of animal welfare. We focus on the quality of our cases, not the quantity. By keeping our program small, typically no more than fifteen dogs at a time, we are able to put an intensive amount of attention into each dog and evaluate their needs intimately to determine their best home. This individualized plan of care enhances the adoption process, making less room for negative variables to occur post-adoption.
MBC also provides support to existing shelters and rescue groups via outreach initiatives including spay/neuter events, fundraising, and adoption support. We award numerous grants each year for a variety of services; pet care and emergency assistance to low income families, adoption training to help harder to place dogs find homes, and assistance to selfless animal rescuers doing what they can on their own. We believe animal welfare is a community effort and work hard to be part of the bigger picture.
