About the Beneficiaries
Silicon Valley Pet Project (SVPP) is a nonprofit organization of volunteers committed to saving local at-risk shelter pets through rescue, community involvement, and education. SVPP saves animals from our local municipal shelter, the San Jose Animal Care Center. So every time they pull a dog into their foster program and free up a kennel for another dog, they are actually saving 2 lives! svpetproject.org
The Thulani Program rescues abandoned and terminally ill or very old German Shepherd dogs from California and Nevada, finds permanent homes for them, and provides funds to help with their care for the rest of their lives. These are dogs that have virtually no chance of being adopted from shelters, and through Thulani they have an opportunity to spend the rest of their lives as treasured companions. thulanidogs.org
