The Greg Biffle Foundation Donates to More Than 100 Animal Welfare Groups Across the United States

Mooresville, N.C — The Greg Biffle Foundation is pleased to announce the recent grant donations to more than 100 humane societies and animal shelters across the United States, doubling the number of grants awarded last year.

The Foundation received more than 200 applications throughout the year and was able to assist 112 animal welfare agencies located in 37 different states across the United States. Grant awards will be used to assist these animal welfare agencies with spay/neuter programs, vet care, pet supplies and much more.

The financial contributions to the Carolina Animal Adoption League, located in South Carolina, will allow the facility to pursue and expand adoption options, while continuing to address the overpopulation problem through aggressive spay/neuter programs and assistance to low income residents.

“Greg and Nicole have generously given of their time and resources to make a difference in the lives of animals,” said Jodi Geschickter of the Carolina Animal Adoption League. “As a rescuer, I can say that encouragement is essential…and they have been encouragers. They’ve given encouragement to each of us.”

“We are very excited to be able to make donations to these organizations that work so tirelessly on a daily basis to improve animal welfare,” said Emily DiNunzio, Greg Biffle Foundation Executive Director.  ”Greg and Nicole find much joy in being able to assist these organizations.”

The Greg Biffle Foundation was founded in 2005 by Greg and Nicole Biffle to create awareness and serve as an advocate to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry. Financial support for the foundation comes from a variety of sources including individual contributions, NASCAR Pets Calendars, and the sale of various racing and other sports memorabilia. Since its creation, The Greg Biffle Foundation has awarded grants to humane societies and animal shelters from coast to coast. Representing the best interests of the animals and using the full potential of each participant's involvement is the purpose for the Greg Biffle Foundation. Greg and Nicole have three dogs – Foster and his daughter, Gracie, a pair of Boxers who are very familiar to race fans across the country. Foster even graced the front of a Milk Bones box in 2004. The latest addition is Savannah, who was rescued from a Georgia shelter.
