Bark and Purr Alliance Fund (BandPAF) is a not-for-profit group established to provide pet owners financial assistance with veterinary costs associated with 1.) traffic accident related pet injuries and 2.)end of life issues, e.g., hospice care, humane euthanasia for geriatric and terminally ill pets. B&PAF also provides mini-grants to qualified rescues, independent rescuers and private adopters to cover shelter pull fees and expedite animal rescue efforts deemed "last chance" emergency cases. Funding priority is given to geriatric rescues (13 yrs - up) and life threatening injury cases.
In addition to providing financial support, Bark & Purr also assists with ongoing advocacy efforts championing good quality of life solutions for senior and geriatric aged companion animals that enter the Los Angeles County & City funded shelter system. Bark & Purr also participates in the larger cross-posting community that use social media to vigorously network super senior/geriatric aged dogs and cats to potential adopters and rescue organizations in Los Angeles.
