The Nusenda Foundation Helps Keep People and Pets Together in Doña Ana County
Ensuring pets have access to vaccinations, veterinary treatment, and long-term medications is a huge undertaking, and one we could not accomplish alone. However, with help from our friends at the Nusenda Foundation, more pets in need will have access to these resources through our Animal Relief Fund program.
The Nusenda Foundation recently awarded a $5,000 Community Rewards grant to the Doña Ana County Humane Society to support financially under-resourced pet parents with vouchers to help cover the cost of their pets’ medical care. $580,000 in grants were awarded to 131 programs in communities across our state.
“Funding for programs like the Animal Relief Fund are few and far between, so being awarded the Nusenda Community Rewards grant makes a tremendous impact for our organization and for pets in need,” said April Anaya, Executive Director for the Doña Ana County Humane Society. “As a first-year grant recipient, we are grateful for the partnership with the Nusenda Foundation and for their commitment to keeping people and pets together.”
“Nusenda Credit Union and Nusenda Foundation believe that when we work together, we have the power to create positive change in communities across New Mexico,” said Nusenda Foundation Executive Director, Sara Keller. Our Community Rewards Program, which is made possible through the financial partnership between Nusenda and its members, allows contributions to be shared with partner organizations and nonprofits to strengthen and support the needs of communities statewide.”
Nusenda Credit Union members guide investments toward the five focus areas of education, healthcare, environment and wildlife, the arts, and community services.
On behalf of the Doña Ana County Humane Society staff, board of directors, and most importantly, pets and families we have the privilege of serving, we would like to extend a sincere thank you to our friends at the Nusenda Foundation for their generous support!
