Why should this person or animal be a PetPartners Animaltarian of the Year?
Erin is committed to saving the lives of senior animals. Her passion began with her own senior pit bull named Jema, whom she adopted at the age of 10. In an effort to share the joys of adopting a senior animal, Erin created City of Elderly Love which began as the marketing initiative in 2012 and was recently incorporated into a nonprofit animal rescue in March 2014. City of Elderly Love is a nonprofit animal rescue dedicated to saving and enriching the lives of adoptable senior pets in the Philadelphia area. Utilizing volunteer foster homes, City of Elderly Love aims to rescue these animals from potential euthanasia at area animal shelters as well as prevent older animals from entering the shelter-system in the first place, when possible. City of Elderly Love also provides palliative and hospice care when needed. Through creative marketing and community events, City of Elderly Love works to place its adoptable pets into loving adoptive homes.
If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?
If awarded $5,000, City of Elderly Love would continue to be able to surpass their life-saving goals in 2014. The money from this grant would go directly to funding the care of senior animals rescued from Philadelphia's open-intake, kill shelters.
