Rescue Chocolate Helps Neighborhood Cats for All of November

5 Nov

Neighborhood Cats has been named the November 2011 beneficiary for Rescue Chocolate, the vegan chocolate company which donates 100% of its profits to various animal rescue organizations.

The mission of Neighborhood Cats is to promote methods for humanely reducing the feral cat population in this country. The humane method of choice? It’s called trap-neuter-return, or TNR for short. TNR involves trained volunteers rounding up the feral cats that they can find, seeing that the cats are spayed or neutered, and then returning the cats to their colonies to live out their lives in peace.

This strategy is very different from what rescue groups advocate for homeless dogs. The push with dogs is to turn them into pets by getting them adopted into loving homes. But very rarely will a cat that has been used to living on its own be a candidate for adoption.

Neighborhood Cats, which is based in New York City, has been something of a pioneer in the feral field, developing educational materials including books, videos, and online courses on how to practice TNR. The group’s workers also present at conferences and seminars throughout the country, and regularly collaborate with other organizations to develop new materials and tools.

The partnership with Rescue Chocolate was a logical one for the chocolate company. While most of the chocolate bars sport labels with a photo of a rescued pit bull, there is one label that features the portrait of a rescued cat. The bar is called Mission Feral Fig, and its accompanying literature urges consumers to join the TNR movement.

“I’ve lived with dogs all my life and never with cats,” said Rescue Chocolate Founder Sarah Gross. “But I’m certainly aware of the problems that cats face on the streets. I’m really honored to be able to be a small part of the solution.”

Her company offers a product line of kosher and vegan chocolate bars and truffles. Each flavor is named after an issue important in the animal rescue world. For example, in addition to the bar featuring feral cats, there are products called Peanut Butter Pit Bull, Pick Me! Pepper, Foster-iffic Peppermint, The Fix, and Fakin’ Bacon.

Gross cautions that while sales ultimately benefit the animals, her chocolate treats are only for human consumption.

The chocolate company was founded in January 2010. Products are sold in retail outlets around the country as well as online.

The Humane Society of Louisiana Gets a Sweet Deal from Rescue Chocolate

11 Sep

The Humane Society of Louisiana has been named the September 2011 beneficiary for Rescue Chocolate, a chocolate company which donates its profits to various animal rescue organizations.

Based in New Orleans, the Humane Society of Louisiana serves a broad swath of the state. According to a spokesperson at the Society, “More than 50% of Louisiana’s communities are without any viable animal shelters or pet rescue programs.” While the Society does not run its own animal shelter, it coordinates animal welfare chapters in 14 separate districts. These all-volunteer groups focus on a variety of programs, from cruelty investigations to pet adoptions, and from school education initiatives to spaying/neutering the animals.

The mission unifying all of the groups is to protect and defend animals from cruelty, neglect and mistreatment, promoting nonviolence and compassion for all animals statewide.

Rescue Chocolate founder Sarah Gross was raised in Shreveport. But until now, she has not partnered with any other animal welfare groups in her home state. Past beneficiaries include In Defense of Animals, The No-Kill Advocacy Center, Farm Sanctuary, and Furry Friends Rescue.

“I know the need is great in the South, and I’m really in awe of all the great work being done down there,” Gross said. “It’s gratifying to be able to help out in my small way.” She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, where the Rescue Chocolate factory is located.

Gross’s company offers a product line of kosher and vegan chocolate bars and truffles. Each flavor is named after an issue important in the animal rescue world. For example, there are bars called Peanut Butter Pit Bull, Pick Me! Pepper, Foster-iffic Peppermint, The Fix, and Mission Feral Fig.

She cautions that while sales ultimately benefit the animals, her chocolate products are only for human consumption.
