Direct & Indirect Competitors

The following establishments are located within a ten-mile radius of [Organization Name], thus providing either direct or indirect competition:

Animal Rescue United
Animal Rescue United is a rescue shelter that saves exotic animals that are abandoned by their previous owners. The shelter restores these animals to health and returns them to their natural habitat, if possible. If not, the animals are sent to zoos, research centers, or other organizations that can care for the animals long term. Animal Rescue United will be a very minor competitor since they rarely take in cats or dogs.

[Location] Dog Rescue
[Location] Dog Rescue is a rescue shelter that commits to rescuing local dogs. They prioritize rescuing dogs from overburdened shelters, but also take in strays and abandoned dogs when possible. [Location] Dog Rescue has multiple locations and is a major presence in the local pet industry. They will be our biggest competitor.

Feline Heaven
Feline Heaven is a popular, high-end rescue shelter that rescues stray cats and abandoned kittens from all around [Location]. They house up to 100 cats at a time and send nearly 1000 off to good homes every year. While Feline Haven will continue to be a great rescue, it will only be a major competitor for adopters looking for cats.
