The Prince Chunk Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that recently launched in June 2010. The Prince Chunk Foundation will enable pet owners to keep their pets during times of financial crisis by providing temporary assistance such as free emergency veterinary care and free pet food to pet owners so they never have to choose between caring for themselves and caring for their pets. According to the ASPCA between 500,000 to 1 million dogs and cats in the United States are at a risk of becoming homeless in an economic downturn.
Initially, the Prince Chunk Foundation will assist dogs and cats, but eventually will expand to other pets. The Prince Chunk Foundation will begin operating in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California.
Prince Chunk is a cat who captivated the world in August 2008 and remained a “heart-throb” to animal-loving citizens of the United States. He has been featured on shows such as: “Live with Regis and Kelly,” “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “The Early Show” and many more. To date, Prince Chunk has been featured in over 750,000 national and international newspaper articles with reporters constantly inquiring for updates. At the conclusion of 2008, Prince Chunk received the title of “Best animal Story of the Year” by People Magazine.
Prince Chunk lost his home in August 2008. His owner’s home was being foreclosed and his owner believed that it was in his best interest to abandon him on the street and “hope for the best”. While Prince Chunk was lucky enough to find a loving home, many animals are not nearly as lucky. The Prince Chunk Foundation hopes to assist struggling pet owners with their pets care in order to prevent animals from being brought into shelters or being abandoned on the street.
