PoundWishes® is a new pet adoption crowdfunding platform designed from the ground-up to help animal shelters and rescues raise the funding needed for expensive medical procedures and infrastructure while simultaneously generating interest in adoptions. Over 7.6 million pets enter shelters and rescues every year; 2.7 million get euthanized. The remaining 4.9 million animals represent a cost of $6 billion. The biggest problem facing shelters and rescues is that they are too busy saving pets to raise the money they need. They are underfunded, understaffed, and under-resourced. Moreover, the hyper-local and factitious nature of animal shelters makes it nearly impossible to get donations outside their immediate geographic area. PoundWishes provides a platform to help it’s its shelter and rescue customers with these operational challenges.
