Dugan Foundation is currently an all volunteer organization, founded on the principle that there is no reason to kill a companion animal for population control. We do, therefore, everything in our power to assist existing non-profit organizations to shelter, adopt and care for the homeless companion animals. We also work to ensure all of our programs have an educational component to allow people to learn what it takes to make a no-kill community. The creation of a no-kill community is based on the development and implementation of a community wide comprehensive animal welfare plan. The Dugan Foundation, in collaboration with local shelters and rescues and hundreds of passionate volunteers, has been leading the development of this comprehensive plan effort since 2003. The decrease in euthanized homeless animals reflects our effort. With all the work that has been done, it is dwarfed by all the work that needs to be done. The plan includes: high volume no cost spay neuter services to decrease the number of animals coming into shelters; high volume adoption events to increase the number of animals leaving a shelter; intensive re-homing and retention services to keep the animals in their current homes; long term care in the form of a Sanctuary for those that are not adopted; increasing the strength and capacity of all smaller rescues and shelters through grant giving so that they can do more; and outreach in every form, to teach and train and advise on appropriate companion animals care and the responsibilities that come with the privilege.
