BROWARD COUNTY, FL (February 21, 2010) — The Sun Sentinel published an article today titled “Aid Groups Race to Save Haiti’s Animals,” in which a $1 million donation is attributed in part to American Dog Rescue. Arthur Benjamin, founder of Dallas-based American Dog Rescue, “has made the Humane Society’s relief efforts in Haiti his personal project,” wrote Susannah Bryan, the article’s author.
“I looked at the devastation in Haiti and wondered what was happening to the dogs,” said Benjamin, who pledged a matching grant program to help the relief effort. “They have no facilities to care for animals. Not just dogs, but also horses, pigs and cows.”
American Dog Rescue contributed more than $15,000 to the effort and publicized many of the immediate and long-term challenges facing animals on the earthquake-stricken island. The organization’s contribution to relief efforts has encouraged more groups to join the mission to save the animals of Haiti.
