By spending just a few minutes on our website, consumers can lower their energy bills by transferring to a lower-priced energy supplier. And perhaps more importantly, they can make a difference in the lives of abused, unwanted, and neglected animals.
Prospect, CT (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Shop For Energy, an online provider of electricity information, news, and services, announced today that it has donated a portion of its proceeds to Circle of Hope K9 Rescue.
“Shop For Energy is a great example of the positive impact energy deregulation has on both consumers’ energy bills and society as a whole,” said Christina Cleri, president of Shop For Energy. “By spending just a few minutes on our website, consumers can lower their energy bills by transferring to a lower-priced energy supplier. And perhaps more importantly, they can make a difference in the lives of abused, unwanted, and neglected animals.”
Circle Of Hope K9 Rescue started with one person, Phyllis Jackman-Stefanakos, in 2002 in Gibson County, Tennessee. Phyllis and her husband went to a kill shelter and took all the dogs there, cleaning that kill shelter out and feeling very elated over how many lives they just saved. Their happy outlook was soon crushed, when they learned that the kill shelter was full again, the very next day. From that experience Circle of Hope K9 Rescue was born. What started out with just one person has now grown to over 60 volunteers between Tennessee and the Northeast.
“I always tell people that when you adopt a dog, you save two lives,” said Phyllis Jackman-Stefanakos, founder of Circle of Hope K9 Rescue. “You save the life of the dog that you adopted, and the life of the dog at the kill shelter that we can now take in because we have room for one more. “
Animals are mostly adopted to the Northeast and sometimes Canada. All of the dogs are quarantined for two weeks to ensure they did not have any communicable diseases. They are then fully vet receiving all their shots and all are spay/neutered before leaving for their forever homes.
Circle of Hope screens all adopters by having them complete an application, go through the process of a vet check on existing pets, a phone interview, and lastly a home visit, to have that one on one contact to make sure the dog and adopter are a good fit.
The group adopts out between 250-300 dogs per year. Donations are used mostly towards paying down vet bills so that more dogs can be spay/neutered. Donations are also used for dog food, dog kennels, and anything else the dogs might need. Right now Circle of Hope is in dire need of flea and tick medications as they have over 100 dogs in their care.
