October’s Coachella Valley Spotlight Recipient is Animal Samaritans.
Animal Samaritans is a nonprofit that is more than just an animal shelter and a place to adopt a furry friend, they believe in the healing power of animal-human connections.
The $25,000 grant from the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation will go towards their Humane Education Program which teaches kids in our communities animal-based lessons to end the cycle of abuse against animals and ultimately help end abuse against people as well.
