Rescue U tackles its biggest build yet

The Petfinder Foundation’s Rescue U tackled its biggest project to date at the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue in Indian Trail, NC from December 31 to January 10, 2013.

"This renovation is extremely exciting as we visited a shelter that is vastly different from any shelter that we’ve visited," said Douglas Woolsey, who oversees these products for Petfinder. "In the past, we have focused our efforts in shelters that house dogs and cats. On this build, we worked to improve the lives of ducks, geese, chickens, and many other types of waterfowl and birds."

Partners and volunteers from across the nation came to help Rescue U, including several members of and The Animal Rescue Site.

The Carolina Waterfowl Rescue sustained considerable damage from tornadoes in 2012. Thanks to a generous grant from, Rescue U built the necessary shelter and safeguards for the birds to protect them from the elements and predators.'s support of Rescue U is made possible by the Gifts That Give More [tm] program at The Animal Rescue Site.
