OAHF Board approves funding for wild animal relocation efforts

OAHF logoThe Ohio Animal Health Foundation Board of Directors has approved funding and a plan to assist with relocation efforts of wild animals currently in Ohio. With an initial $30,000 in funds committed, the OAHF is looking to award grants with established non-profit sanctuaries who can house and care for animals that need to be moved as a result of Senate Bill 310.

The grant guidelines stipulate that assistance can be requested for relocation, housing, veterinary care and general care and feeding of species needing a new sanctuary home as a result of owner’s relinquishing their animals under  Ohio’s new law. Complete grant guidelines can be found at http://oahf.org/grants.html, and those wishing to add needed resources to the Foundation’s initial funding commitment can make a donation of any amount at the Web site by clicking on the DONATE NOW button.
