To All Our Rescue Angels~ We Believe Together We DO Make A Difference!
Thank you for visiting our page. This tells me that you have a big heart and a love for dogs. So what can you do to help?? It took me a long time to realize that even if I couldn’t FOSTER a dog, I could be of use/service to a rescue organization. It takes SO many things to enable it to run and survive, including spreading the word, helping with fundraisers, finding donations for our upcoming silent auction, participating with other special projects, coming
up with and helping execute new ideas to benefit the dogs and their welfare, various administrative tasks, etc. So if you feel like you can help in any of THESE areas, PLEASE let us know. Also, PLEASE don’t underestimate the ‘spreading the word’ function, or any of the other functions I’ve mentioned. This is vital to our success and to get this up and running, so the more people you tell, the better. You just never know when they may have a friend or relative in a situation where they are ready to adopt or foster a wonderful, deserving dog, or are able to help in some other way. Additionally, we MUST generate some new foster spots before we can move forward. Trust me when I say that there is no shortage of dogs needing help in our local shelters. Some of you may be surprised to find out that the average euthanasia rates range from 65-89% in the local shelters, INCLUDING the Humane Society and SPCA, so these dogs are dying on a daily basis (see http://www.examiner.com/x-43393-Houston-Animal-Shelters-Examiner~y2010m5d21-Fuzzy-math-at-kill-shelters) . People turn in animals to shelters for ALL KINDS of reasons, including divorces, new babies, having to move, ‘it doesn’t match the furniture’, it barks, it digs, it had a litter of unwanted puppies, etc… thus leaving rescue groups responsible for trying to clean up the aftermath. But in order to do so, we must have homes for them to stay in while we work to find them their forever homes.
