Greg Biffle Foundation Donates Nearly $10,000 For Tornado Disaster Relief
Mooresville, N.C. (June 7, 2011) — The Greg Biffle Foundation recently donated nearly $10,000 to two animal shelters assisting with the animal rescue efforts caused by the devastation from recent tornados. Recipients of the disaster relief grants were the Animal Advocates of Moore County and the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter.
The financial contributions to these groups will afford them aid for the animals in need. Both organizations are rescuing pets that have become homeless or displaced, providing emergency vet care, offering pet food and supplies and providing foster homes until families are able to collect their pets.
Animal Advocates of Moore County, located in Pinehurst, NC, is assisting with the animals in Lee and Sanford counties. They are in need of monetary donations and supplies such as 10×10 chain link kennels, dog houses, collars, leashes and much more. If you can assist with any donation, please contact Maureen Hornasky at 910-295-7587.
The Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter, located in Tuscaloosa, AL, is assisting with the intake of animals found homeless or injured from the tornado. They are providing vet care, orthopedic surgeries, basic medial needs and much more for the animals brought into their care. If you are interested in helping them, please contact Judy Hill at 205-349-9438.
“We are very happy to be able to make donations to these organizations that are tirelessly working on aiding these animals,” said Nicole Biffle. ”Greg and I are very saddened by the hundreds of animals displaced and hurt; we hope these donations can offer some relief in their efforts.”
The Greg Biffle Foundation was founded in 2005 by Greg and Nicole Biffle to create awareness and serve as an advocate to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry. Since its creation, the Foundation has awarded grants to more than 400 humane societies and animal shelters from coast to coast. Representing the best interests of the animals and using the full potential of each participant’s involvement is the purpose for the Greg Biffle Foundation.
Greg and Nicole have three dogs – Foster and his daughter, Gracie, a pair of Boxers who are very familiar to race fans across the country. Foster even graced the front of a Milk Bones box in 2004. The latest addition is Savannah, who was rescued from a Georgia shelter.
Financial support for the foundation comes from a variety of sources including individual contributions, NASCAR Pets Calendars, and the sale of various racing and other sports memorabilia. For more information on the Greg Biffle Foundation go to www.gregbifflefoundation.com.
