RISMEDIA, Oct. 22, 2008-No Paws Left Behind, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to bringing awareness to and finding solutions for the growing phenomena of “foreclosure pets,” is participating in two upcoming foreclosure prevention workshops sponsored by HOPE NOW Alliance and NeighborWorks® America.
HOPE NOW, an alliance of mortgage servicers, counselors and investors assembled to combat foreclosures, recently reported that it completed a record number of 192,220 workouts in the month of July, contrasted with 188,931 workouts, 78,853 modifications and 110,078 repayment plans which were completed in August. According to HOPE NOW, a total of 2.3 million homeowners have been able to avoid foreclosure in the past 14 months. NeighborWorks America is a national nonprofit organization created by Congress to provide financial support, technical assistance, and training for community-based revitalization efforts.
No Paws Left Behind will be on site at the upcoming workshops to inform borrowers facing potential foreclosure of the options for finding safe, alternative placement for their pets. Through its website, www.nopawsleftbehind.org, the organization provides borrowers, neighbors and field service representatives with a resource for placing abandoned pets in No Kill shelters or foster care homes. In attending these foreclosure prevention workshops, No Paws Left Behind will provide guidance to borrowers as a way to reduce the number of pets that are abandoned in the foreclosure process.
The two upcoming workshops will be held Wed., Oct. 22 in Tucson, Ariz. and Thurs., Oct. 23 in Glendale, Ariz. from 2:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. At each workshop, borrowers will have the chance to meet with their lender and discuss workout options to avoid foreclosure.
“We look forward to educating borrowers in conjunction with HOPE NOW and NeighborWorks America,” said Cheryl Lang, president of Houston-based Integrated Mortgage Solutions and founder of No Paws Left Behind. “No Paws Left Behind will reach out to these distressed borrowers and inform them of their options regarding alternative placement options for their pets should they need them. Much of our efforts to date have been focused on rescuing abandoned animals at the foreclosed property. In reaching these borrowers proactively and presenting their options, we are confident that we can reduce the number of animals that will be left behind.”
