The Betty Fund

Who is Betty?

"Betty" is an adorable 2 year old Golden Retriever mix that lived on her own. The biggest strike against her was the fact thatBetty she was not spayed. What happened to most other pups was a tragedy, most did not make it. It wasn't until Animal Compassion Network became involved that this cruel and vicious cycle stopped. "Betty's" last litter of 8 pups was rescued from the mud underneath a trailer and put in a foster home. "Betty" was rescued, received medical treatment, spayed and put in rehabilitation.Betty with Jordan-her new brother.

Where is Betty now?

"Betty" now has a wonderful loving family and life long home. All of her puppies, from her last litter, were adopted to carefully screened homes.

What is the Betty Fund?

The costs of this one rescue are staggering. "Betty" and her 8 pupsAli-one of Betty's pups cost hundreds in medical, food and care. There is a way to stop this vicious cycle. In 2000, Animal Compassion Network started the Betty Fund. A fund whose sole purpose is to provide money for spaying or neutering. Imagine the effects of just one animal not "fixed", this animal could produce 3 litters a year! In a short time this one animal could produce enough offspring to overwhelm any Katie-one of Betty's pupsshelter in Western North Carolina! The scary part is that there are thousands of "Bettys" out there begging for help Since 2000, 369 dogs and cats have been spayed/neutered with money from this fund. That's a potential of over 70,000 unwanted births in one year!
