The Animal Welfare Funding Alliance(TAWFA) 

The Denver Polo Club and The Animal Welfare Funding Alliance(TAWFA) are pleased to announce that Coldwell Banker and their Global Luxury Division will be the title sponsor at the Polo, Puppies and the Prince fundraiser August 11th.  This event is capturing the attention of animal lovers throughout Colorado.  Benefiting Animal Aid USA and boots on the ground rescues, the hope is to increase the awareness of the need for funding to continue this essential  work on behalf of the animals.  

Coldwell Banker has long been associated with community giving back and has a special passion for pets.   They developed the "Homes For Dogs Project" in association with Adopt-A-Pet.com.  Together, their association has resulted in more than 20,000 dogs finding homes.   

Prince Lorenzo Borghese, co-founder of Animal Aid USA and honorary host of Polo, Puppies and the Prince says, "I am thrilled to see Coldwell Banker and their Global Luxury Division continue to lead the way for large corporate support  in the re-homing of our pets.  They clearly are taking their passion for finding homes for dogs to a whole new level by supporting the Polo, Puppies and the Prince event in Denver.  Their involvement and outreach in the community will help raise critical funds. We are also thankful that there can be heightened   awareness of the essential financial backing needs of   "boots on the ground" rescue operations".   

"Sadly, adds Borghese,  there is never an end to the rescue of pets and the fiscal challenge.  The cost is extraordinary due to the diminished condition of the pets and critical emergency situations that we see on a week to week basis at Animal Aid USA. We are not alone in that our rescue is volunteer and all funds needed to perform this critical component are dependent on the kindness and compassion of others." 

Polo, Puppies and The Prince will be held at The Denver Polo Club. The schedule of events will include a puppy adoption held by Paws on the Ground Rescue, Polo, Concessions, Pictures with the Prince from 12 pm to 2 pm.  The formal dinner event will start at 5:30 pm with polo, catered dinner and dancing.     

Full details of the event can be found at www.polopuppiesandtheprince.com or by calling Jayne Cordes at 720-936-6691.  

 

 

 
 

 

 

animal aid uSA FEATURED IN "southern fix". 

"Southern Fix", Animal Festival Award Winner, 2018!  "The facts are startling — approximately 3 to 4 million companion animals are killed each year throughout the United States. That boils down to over 9,000 animals every day, 399 every hour and over six animals per minute. That’s too many.  But how do we fix it?  The filmmakers interviewed advocates like Pam Grier, Prince Lorenzo Borghese and Karen Talbot of Animal Aid USA, Scotlund Haisley of Animal Rescue Corps, leaders from Young Williams Animal Center, The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and many others to hear from the frontline of this battle.  Do mandatory sterilization laws work? Can education be the key? Is it a matter of cultural mindlessness? Why does one state differ in euthanasia numbers so drastically from another?  A Southern Fix is a 5,000 mile journey to find the solution".
