Pawprintrun for Pets Haven Foundation - October 9

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" - Anatole France 

This famous quote is at the heart of Pets Haven Foundation's mission, which is to enjoy the gift of animals by rescuing as many cats and dogs from death-row pounds as possible. Upon rescue, Pets Haven provide much needed veterinary care and treatment, before placing each animal into foster care and adoption. Thousands of animals are rescued though their effort per year but more are euthanised unnecessarily. 

To improve the situation, animal lover, activist, and Pets Haven volunteer, George Janev created the Pawprintrun initiative, which will see him run 42.195 km at the Melbourne Marathon on October 16. 

George is endeavouring to raise a much needed $10,000 for the organisation to help pay for transportation of rescue animals from death row pounds to Pets Haven's facility (most of which are from rural NSW), veterinary checks, desexing, microchipping, foster care placement, and adoption. 

Additionally, George is determined to build awareness in all aspects of animal welfare, having seen first-hand the trauma caused by neglect and abuse, and amazing transformations that occur when we allow healing to occur in an atmosphere of love and compassion. 

The Pawprintrun donation page is accessible at Everyday Hero:

In preparation for Pawprintrun, you can catch George doing laps of The Tan wearing his bright pink Pets Haven colours. Be sure to encourage him along and ask him anything you want to know about Pets Haven. If you have a pawprint buddy, George would love the chance to say hello.
