injury or death within the last year.* The exclusive KeepSafe Break-Away Green Collar features a patented safety buckle designed to protect dogs and cats from collar accidents.“Saving Tails is proud to offer pet owners safe and environmentally sound collars that will benefit thousands of animals that are abused, neglected, and homeless,” said Johonna Godofsky, President of Saving Tails. “It is our hope that this community-driven campaign will allow Furry Friends Rescue to grow their organization and will provide Saving Tails with the proper resources to initiate nationwide campaigns and education programs.” “Each year, approximately 8 million dogs and cats are euthanized because they don’t have a home,” said Emily Verna, President of Furry Friends Rescue. “The money raised through the Green Collar campaign will provide us with more resources,
infrastructure, and support for the thousands of abandoned dogs and cats that do not have homes.” About Saving Tails Founded in 2004, Saving Tails is a non-profit organization that generates funding
