No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB), a global animal welfare organization, has been awarded a generous grant from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) International’s Shelter Support Fund to support the incredible work that NDLB is doing on the front lines in East Asia.
“I am honored to partner with SPCA International at this very important time,” said Jeffrey Beri, founder of NDLB. “2021 is our year for change! We will save many lives in the upcoming months on the front lines in East Asia and are making huge headway demanding change. After this last year, the world has no choice but for change.”
Jacqueline Finnegan, Vice President of NDLB, agrees. “We are thrilled to enter into a partnership with SPCA International. No Dogs Left Behind believes that no one foundation will make change; collectively, we will.”
It is a natural partnership: SPCA International works to advance the safety and well-being of animals through several innovative programs: distributing critical veterinary supplies, spearheading education initiatives, providing shelter support to small shelters and rescue organizations, and working to save and reunite patriot pets with their military friends.
“SPCA International is committed to helping our partner organizations on the front lines. [Beri] has dedicated his life to stopping the dog meat trade and raising awareness,” said Meredith Ayan, Executive Director of SPCA International. “He is making such an impact. We are incredibly inspired by [NDLB’s] mission.”
Beri, with help from hundreds of activists in China and the US, rescues dogs from slaughterhouses, illegal dog traffickers, dog meat trucks, and wet markets, including the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival which is set to begin on June 21st. Once rescued, he transports the dogs to safe havens where they receive emergency medical care, nutritional support, and provides rehabilitation for the traumatized canines. Every dog is treated, vetted, rehabilitated, and set up for success to be adopted into loving homes in the United States, Canada and the U.K.
Having this partnership with the SPCA International is critical to NDLB’s fight on the frontlines. “[T]he funds granted to us by the SPCA International will be used for the upcoming rescues of dogs who are heading to Yulin, and others who are in dire need of emergency response,” Beri said.
Through the unwavering support of donors, volunteers and activists, NDLB is leading the efforts to bring global animal welfare reform, and welcomes the partnership of SPCA International in this mission.
