Target: Kris Kelly, Founder of the Kris Kelly Foundation
Goal: Support foundation that offers hope for animals, as well as practical ways for animal lovers to be of service
The Kris Kelly Foundation is unique in its approach to helping animals find new homes. While most shelters emphasize finding permanent homes for animals, the Kris Kelly Foundation also seeks out foster homes to serve as halfway houses while an animal awaits a more long-term arrangement. The Kris Kelly Foundation saves lives by encouraging animal lovers to become foster families, easing the burden on animal shelters. The cost of caring for an animal in a shelter can be extensive, and many shelters often have no choice but to put down animals that are not adopted within a certain time frame. Sign this petition to support the Kris Kelly Foundation’s efforts to save lives through its innovative approach to animal adoptions.
The Kris Kelly Foundation’s foster family program not only helps the animals, but is also mutually beneficial to the foster families themselves. The perfect candidates for this program are people who care about animals, but do not have the resources to take care of one long-term, although they are able and happy to for the short-term. The result is an arrangement that gives a temporary home to a dog in need, while also spreading joy to its temporary caretaker.
Dear Ms. Kelly, founder of the Kris Kelly Foundation
Thank you for your efforts to help animals find new homes through the kindness and generosity of your foundation. One of the most remarkable aspects of your work is the forthright honesty with which you convey your sentiments. It is inspiring to read your quote, “I rescue animals but really they have rescued me.” Your words remind everyone of the joy that animals are capable of spreading, and the joy that manifests in the your foster family program, allowing pets and people to help each other.
Another aspect of your work that sets the Kris Kelly Foundation apart from other shelters is the vision that you have for integrating your acting career with your non-profit work. The prospect of having a reality show with Warner Brothers, documenting the reality of animal adoptions, has the potential to be a very impactful and meaningful project. Please continue to fight for the animals that you are care so deeply about. Your innovation is a motivation to all of us to continue considering how we can make a difference in new and exciting ways.
