Do you realize thousands of companion animals are surrendered to shelters and ultimately euthanized each year simply because their caregivers became ill, entered a nursing facility or passed away? The Biscuit Foundation offers alternatives to prevent pets in these circumstances from ending up in an already overcrowded shelter situation.
Welcome to our foundation!
The Biscuit Foundation is a 501(c) non-profit organization founded in 2008 to assure pet owners peace of mind by providing short to long term care for their pet in the event of the pet owners terminal illness, hospitalization, recovery from surgery or sickness. Placement services would be provided for pets whose owners have entered a nursing facility or passed away. Please read more to learn about what we are doing to help.
How it all began...
Debbie Fuller began Pampered Pets in 1984 providing Grooming and
Boarding services for pets in the Alamance County area. The business
grew quickly and a unique, close-knit relationship developed between
Debbie and her clients. She sincerely cared about the pets and their
owners, making sure they were happy with the services received.
Debbie's opinion was highly valued, as clients would ask her thoughts
on everything from behavioral to medical issues where their pets were
concerned. She gained their trust they knew they could count on her.
As the years went on, Pampered Pets saw young pets growing into seniors and their owners aging as well. There had been numerous situations over the years where a sick or elderly client may have no other alternative but to give up their pet because they could no longer provide care for them and Debbie was the first one they called. She would always help and they trusted her. A new foundation for Alamance County was waiting to emerge to help the sick and elderly with their pets.... The Biscuit Foundation!!!
It is our commitment that no companion pet shall be surrendered to a animal shelter and perhaps face possible euthanasia due to the fact that the owner became terminally ill, entered a nursing home or passed away. The Biscuit Foundation is committed to offering hope to pet owners when faced with making these life-changing decisions concerning the future of their beloved pet. Being an all-volunteer foundation, we strive to build a strong network of supporters who believe in our purpose and cause. Together, with hard work and dedication The Biscuit Foundation seeks to grow and help pet owners in these difficult times.
