— Combined Energy Services, a local family-owned fuel oil and gas supplier, recently donated a work van to Pibbles and More Animal Rescue in Dingmans Ferry, where one of the company's four offices is located.

“Pibbles is a non-profit and receives its funds from public donations, grants and contests,” said Mike Taylor, Combined Energy Services co-owner. “Many of its animals come from shelters, strays, owner surrenders and abandoned animals. Because of the dedication of 200 volunteers and 50 foster parents, usually 600 to 1,000 animals are placed in foster or ‘forever’ homes each year. We are honored to be part of this important community effort.”

Pibbles was established to rescue homeless and abandoned companion animals, and primarily places dogs with people who live in the tristate and New England areas. All animals are placed in foster homes until they are adopted by an approved home. The organization is staffed solely by volunteers who love and want to help homeless animals.

“This van will help us tremendously with the transporting of animals, whether it’s picking them up from a surrendering owner home or from a kill-shelter where the animal is facing imminent death, to transporting them to their new foster or forever home said ” Saleena Hernandez, Pibbles president and CEO. “We are very grateful.”
