Heaven on Earth Society for Animals and Seth MacFarlane Team Up
Posted Aug 22, 2011 by Sydney Fleischer
Causes recently partnered with Heaven on Earth Society for Animals, a no kill shelter and sanctuary for cats in Los Angeles, on a terrific project. Their Founder and Executive Director, Eri Kriteman, is here today to tell us about Seth MacFarlane’s work with the sanctuary and their $50,000 fundraising project on Causes.
Heaven on Earth Society for Animals began in 2000 with a commitment to ending the senseless suffering of homeless animals in our community caused by the overpopulation crisis. Over population in animal shelters is the number one cause of death in companion animals. In the U.S. alone, more than 4 million animals die in shelters every year, and we can do something about it.
On July 16, 2011, we announced that Seth MacFarlane, creator of the hit animation series Family Guy, American Dad and the Cleveland Show, is paying tribute to his mother, Perry MacFarlane, by teaming up with Heaven on Earth Society for Animals to establish Perry’s Place – The Perry MacFarlane Sanctuary at Heaven on Earth. In order to purchase and build a new sanctuary and adoption center, Heaven on Earth has launched the Perry’s Place fundraising campaign with a matching challenge to our supporters! We are excited to reach out to our supporters and animal lovers everywhere with a challenge to raise $50,000 as a our tribute to Perry MacFarlane. You can help us by donating to our project which has already raised $12,000 of our $50,000 fundraising goal on Causes and by joining our cause Heaven on Earth. Please help us continue our lifesaving work as Perry’s special legacy.
Heaven on Earth aims to improve the quality of life for homeless animals, particularly those who are often overlooked because of special needs and low potential for adoption. In addition to operating our no-kill, cage free sanctuary we also serve our community through our SpayShip Transport Program. This involves working with local spay/neuter clinics to offer FREE transportation services to the community in an effort to help control the feral and tame cat population. Finally, we provide short-term care for homeless cats in an effort to assist other rescues when space gets tight.
