Foreclosed Upon Pets, Inc. (FUPI) is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to the rescue of domesticated animals that have been abused and/or abandoned by their owners as a result of economic hardship, including home foreclosure, loss of employment, insufficient income, or death and illness. FUPI will work to further the cause of animal control through the education of the general public about the humane benefits of spay and neuter programs. FUPI will take on a leadership role in developing strategies and creating coalitions with other animal rescue organizations in order to better serve the residential and commercial sectors of the community in the fight against animal cruelty.
Foreclosures affect pets too!
Webster’s definition of foreclosure: To shut out.
FUPI will make its services known to individual owners of pets who are suffering from the following:
- Economic hardship due to loss of job/home
- Insufficient income
- Temporary housing for hospitalized pet owners
- Temporary housing of military pets
- Death of a pet owner
Some pets come from loving families that have no choice but to relinquish their animals to animal control authorities due to home foreclosure.
Some rescued pets come from owners who have passed away or due to severe illness can no longer care for their pet.
Other animals come from less responsible pet owners who have neglected, abused and/or abandoned their pets. Upon rescue, many of these animals are in need of medical attention, appropriate food, and socialization with people and other animals.
FUPI’s approach to animal rescue will be a proactive alternative to animal cruelty and abandonment.
