A NEW FOCUS…..Prevention

With the start of a new year, we are taking a new look at our mission. Saving lives, tranporting animals, adopting pets to new homes are all very important. But the numbers of animals we need to help continues to grow. How can we continue to rescue so many animals each year? How can cities continue to increase the numbers of kennels available for stray animals at an increased cost to taxpayers? How do we eventually put rescues out of business? Nothing we are currently doing seems to be making a differeince.

SAVE RESCUE is embarking on a new mission, to reduce the number of animals that need to be rescued. Spaying and neutering animals is the only way to stop the wave of homeless pets. You don't have to rescue them if they are never born. We have had an ongoing community outreach program to help low income individuals fix their pets for several years as well as a very active TNR (Trap-Neuter- Return) program for community or unowned cats. Last year our efforts resulted in over 175 animals taken out of the breeding pool. This is at an average cost of $ 85 per animal.

We would like to triple this number for 2019 and make even more difference. But we need YOUR help. Our current fundraisers for December ( Giving Tuesday, Garage Sale and private fundraiser) have raised $4980 toward our goal of $30,000.00. Won't you join us to help reach this goal. 375 alter surgeries will prevent THOUSANDS of new animals from entering the "shelter/rescue" system.
