The unconditional love of an animal is powerful. I have told the story of my first rescue, Champ, whose fierce love moti- vated me to put in the hard work to start our shelter. Champ had such an effect on my life that I became determined to save other animals in dire situations like his. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the names of the three wise and kind women who bequested money and land in their wills for just such a venture: Nora Lee Orndoff, Norma Jean Blackhurst, and Mary Munnel Rinehart.
That was 20 years ago! Generous souls continue to sup- port our efforts with time and money.
Many of you are motivated to give back because you, too, are the beneficiaries of the perfect love of a pet. You pay that gift forward to help animals in need. Then, animals abandoned or abused are saved to go on to love another family, who in turn want to help, in a perfect circle of caring.
Join us, because animals cannot save themselves, and they have so much to give.
Our work begins and ends with your love and generosity. To you and your pets, we are truly grateful
