United Pet Fund Receives Grant from Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation to Support Aid for Rural Animal Shelter Deserts Project


Cincinnati, OHIO, February 27.2024 – United Pet Fund (UPF) is delighted to announce the continuation of its partnership with the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation through the receipt of a generous grant. This grant, awarded as part of the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation Grant Program, will support UPF’s ongoing initiative, “Aid for Rural Animal Shelter Deserts,” aimed at providing vital resources to underserved animal shelters and rescue organizations in rural areas.


The Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation, established in 2004 by Elsa Heisel Sule, a native of Northern Kentucky, is renowned for its commitment to philanthropy and its support of organizations with qualified charitable purposes. The foundation’s continued generosity underscores its dedication to improving the welfare of animals in need.


In 2024, the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation reaffirmed its support for UPF’s Hartz Mt. / UPF Resource Train Program by awarding a substantial grant. This grant will enable UPF to transport tons of animal food and supply resources to Animal Shelter/Rescue Resource Deserts in the Tri-State area and much of the Midwest, addressing critical needs in communities where access to such resources is limited.


“We are immensely grateful to the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation for their unwavering support of our mission,” said Zeke Zekoff, DVM, President and Founder of United Pet Fund. “This grant will allow us to expand our reach and provide essential aid to rural animal shelters and rescue organizations facing significant challenges. Through collaborative efforts, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of countless animals and the communities they serve.”


The Aid for Rural Animal Shelter Deserts project aims to alleviate the burden faced by animal shelters and rescue groups operating in remote and underserved areas. By delivering much-needed supplies and resources, UPF strives to ensure these organizations can continue their lifesaving work and provide quality care to animals in need.


“We are proud to support United Pet Fund’s impactful initiatives through our grant program,” said Ruth Kletter, Trustee and CEO at the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation. “The Aid for Rural Animal Shelter Deserts project aligns with our foundation’s mission to improve the welfare of animals and strengthen communities. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact of this collaboration.”


The grant from the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation will enable United Pet Fund to enhance its efforts in addressing the unique challenges faced by rural animal shelters and rescue organizations, ultimately improving the lives of animals, and fostering stronger, more resilient communities.
