The group purchased the vehicle using a grant from the Petco Foundation. Photo courtesy High Sierra Animal Rescue Grant helps pay for new transportation High Sierra Animal Rescue has received a $28,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to fund transportation for rescued animals. Using the grant, HSAR has purchased a 2013 GMC cargo van, which will be used to transport rescued dogs and cats to veterinary appointments and to show them to the public every Saturday at the Petco store on South Virginia Street in Reno. The new van replaces the 2000 Dodge van HSAR drove 190,000 miles over many years. The new vehicle has all-wheel drive, making it much easier and safer to drive in inclement weather, plus additional insulation to make it more comfortable for animals and drivers in both hot and cold weather. It's also more fuel-efficient, making it more economical for HSAR. The old van has not outlived its usefulness and now has a new home with the Northern Nevada Bulldog Rescue in Reno, Nev. That group will use the vehicle for local pickup and delivery at its thrift store in Sparks. HSAR is a nonprofit organization that rescues animals in the Plumas-Lassen County area. Operating since May 1999, the shelter has rescued more than 3,500 animals. The shelter has a state-of-the-art facility built in 2001 located at 103 Meadowridge Lane in Portola. The Petco Foundation has served as a voice for companion animals across the country since 1999. Today, with more than 9,500 local animal welfare partners across the country, the foundation donates approximately $15 million a year to make a difference in the lives of millions of animals.
