Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help even the smallest animal.
Lori Reynolds and Grove City Area Pet Rescue (GCAPR) has been rescuing homeless, injured and abandoned animals in the Grove City Pa area since 2002. Thousands of animals have been saved during this time by this rescue group.
GCAPR’s main focus is cats. It is the #1 problem in communities. It seems every year the numbers grow with the amount of litters being born in the communities in and surrounding Grove City. GCAPR is a nonprofit 501C3 organization with boots on the ground daily for the last 14 years of rescuing and helping to control the overpopulation of dogs and cats in Mercer, Butler, Venango and neighboring counties. We work closely with local vets that offer us a discounted price for vet care for our animals.
We not only rescue, we help community pet owners who are struggling to provide care for their pets. We get calls asking for help with sick pets, owners who want to spay and neuter but can’t afford to do so, or some that just need help with behavioral issues. We provide education to those who needing help with training or considering certain procedures, such as declawing, to help them educate themselves before making decisions in surgery.
We are based out of Grove City Pa. GCAPR does not have a rescue facility, nor are we funded by any local or state agency. We operate strictly on community donations to rescue, provide needed vet care, spay and neuter, provide foster homes, and eventually find permanent homes for these unwanted animals.
GCAPR just recently obtained a space where we can hold adoption events out of. Being able to showcase our available kittens and cats help us to be able to adopt out more and in turn, allow us to rescue and save more. This space costs our rescue a flat rate monthly fee. We will begin holding events to help cover the costs of this space. Other than space fee, Grove City Area Pet Rescue has NO administration expenses, and NO employees to pay. We are a small group of volunteers who have full time jobs, families to care for and many other responsibilities, but we find the time DAILY to devote to these animals because the need in our area is so great.
All our kittens and cats are raised in foster homes. This helps each cat acclimate to a home environment and allows the foster homes to be able to evaluate each kittens and cats personality. This also helps GCAPR be able to help adopters pick the perfect pet for their family. Being raised in a foster home gives the kitten a better chance of transitioning into their forever home.
GCAPR does deal with dogs on occasion. We do not base rescue on breed and do not rescue only Purebred breeds. When there is a dog in need, GCAPR arranges placement with a rescue that deals with dogs and has a kennel license to do so.
