OAHF Board approves funding for wild animal relocation efforts
Jan. 24, 2013 — The 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 here, and those wishing to add needed resources to the Foundation’s initial funding commitment can make a donation of any amount by clicking the DONATE NOW button.
