Plumb, a nonprofit that operates rescue centers and rescue dogs, says it’s now rescued 3.7 million animals from the brink of extinction.
Plumb’s executive director said the organization will spend $10 million this year on a project to rescue at least 10,000 animals a day from the United States.
Plumb’s Rescue Dogs and Cats program aims to rescue animals from catacombs, catacomb shelters and shelters for neglected animals.
The group says the rescue effort is focused on helping dogs and cats that are orphaned, abandoned or homeless.
Plumbs Rescue Dogs & Cats will be a nonprofit, with a focus on rescue efforts to prevent euthanasia and adoptable pets, according to a news release.
“We are grateful for the outpouring of support and generosity from individuals and organizations throughout the world,” said Plumb president and CEO Scott Strain.
“As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we will not be able to fulfill all our rescues, but will do everything we can to help in the most effective way possible.”
Plumb is working with Animal Rescue Alliance, which works to help animals in need, and the Humane Society of the United Kingdom, a global rescue organization.
It also has partnerships with several local animal rescue groups, including Animal Control of Northern California, Animal Rescue Foundation of the Puget Sound, Animal Services of Southern California, The Humane Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Los Angeles County and Animal Rescue of the City of Oakland.
The organization is partnering with Animal Aid International to raise money to help rescue dogs and cataract victims, according the release.
Plumbs Rescue Dog & Cats was founded in 2016.
The nonprofit is now active in a handful of states, including Maine, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Washington.
The nonprofit has been involved in a number of rescues and rescue-focused projects.
In 2016, the organization rescued 1,200 dogs from a New York City apartment building.
In 2017, the group rescued 1.4 million dogs from an apartment building in Chicago.
The organization also rescued more than 2 million dogs and nearly 4 million cats in 2019.
