Helping a Furry Friend in Need: NJ Copywriters Raise Funds for West Orange Animal Shelter

Since 2010, Fahoury Ink has raised more than $5,000 for the all-volunteer West Orange Animal Welfare League.

Celebrating National Adopt a Shelter Pet month, NJ copywriting firm Fahoury Ink is donating 10% of its October 2012 billings to the West Orange Animal Welfare League (WOAWL) to benefit homeless pets.

This is Fahoury Ink’s third consecutive year supporting the WOAWL. To date, the company has raised over $5,000 for the all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of stray and abandoned animals in the West Orange, NJ area.

According to the WOAWL’s Elaine Gibson, last year her group worked with the township of West Orange to place nearly 100 animals in permanent homes. “Fahoury Ink’s donation helps us get every pet ‘adoption ready’ — veterinary care, spay/neutering, distemper vaccines, even new collars, leashes and cat carriers.”

Company principal Lisa Fahoury has firsthand experience with the work of the WOAWL. “One of our first stops when we moved to town was the West Orange Animal Welfare League. Over the years, we’ve adopted six cats that were wonderful additions to our family, and I’m pleased we can help WOAWL bring the joy of pet adoption to more families.”

Like other nonprofits, the WOAWL has been hard hit by economic conditions on multiple fronts — donations and adoptions are down, and the volunteer pool is shrinking. Says Gibson, “There are fewer people looking for a new pet so it takes much longer for animals to be adopted. But we keep on trying, working and hoping to find these stray and abandoned pets homes.”

Adds WOAWL President Sandy Rubin, “It would be difficult for us to survive without the support of our community. When we look at Lisa we see the best of our community. Her commitment and compassion are unsurpassed.”  Gibson agrees: “Fahoury Ink and its pet-friendly clients have truly become the WOAWL’s guardian angels.”  

The promotional period for the fundraiser runs from October 1 to October 31, and applies to any project for which time is billed during the month. Additional donations to the WOAWL are also most welcome.
