We also help social services, law enforcement, and mental health facilities whenever they have animals in need because their humans have come up against hard times. We want to try to relieve already stressed social systems during a time of need. These cases come to us from many sources. Additionally, the staff at the Mitzvah Fund collaborate with a number of regional organizations dedicated to preventing and responding to animal abuse cases. We have fostered neglected or abused animals in cases awaiting court procedures.
