A new, nonprofit organization formed to provide aid to animals and their owners during times of disaster, disease, abuse and abandonment officially launched last weekend in Charlotte, N.C.

The American Pet Cross (APC) aims to supplement and increase efforts already in place with organizations such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“We believe APC can help these organizations dedicated to providing support for animals and their owners,” said Dan Taylor, founder of the organization. “To hear of the differing diseases, abuse and other hardships encountered by these animals is heartbreaking. As a multiple pet owner myself, I am very passionate about my love of animals and look forward to introducing the launch of APC’s efforts to help them.”

APC is coordinating a Senior Pets program in an effort to promote adoptions of older pets and is attempting to develop “rescue camps” to house homeless animals. In addition, APC is attempting to establish a “Registered Pet Offender” list to name those who have been convicted of animal abuse. The APC has plans to expand and open chapters of the organization in various cities.
