Dearest Sidewalk Angels ,
Sidewalk Angels Foundation ongoing commitment to Last Chance Animal Rescue has provided critical support when it has been most needed. As we embark on a new year with loftier goals it is a comfort to know that we can look to you for guidance and support going forward.
Those of us here at Incred-A-Bull are truly honored and grateful to be acknowledged and given the support of Sidewalk Angels Foundation in helping the dogs of our community. With the funds provided, we have been able to offer free or low cost spay and neuter surgeries to almost eighty “pit bull” dogs this year. We have also been able to assist dozens of owners with basic supplies such as food, toys, collars and leashes through our Owner Support Program which aims to assist struggling owners, some of whom are living on the streets, in keeping their beloved companions. Through this program we have even been successful at building a few secure dog runs, allowing owners to keep their dogs safely contained and off of a tether or chain. While our main focus is dogs labeled as “pit bulls”, Owner Support is offered to dog owners of all kinds. We are working hard to end breed discrimination and value the human-canine bond so deeply, for us to discriminate would go against what we stand for!

Pets Alive Puerto Rico is very thankful to Rob and Marisol Thomas and the Sidewalk Angels Foundation. They provided the initial funding for Pets Alive Puerto Rico, and they are the driving force behind our mission to end the problem of stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs that roam the streets of Puerto Rico. Since the sanctuary opened in April of 2012, PAPR has rescued more than 600 dogs from all across the island. Every single one of the dogs we rescue has a medical need, and some are in critical condition. This year’s annual gift from the SWAF is helping to fund a new wing that will house medical and surgical rooms where we will nurse these dogs back to health and find them the loving homes that they deserve. THANK YOU Sidewalk Angels Foundation. Your generosity is helping to change the world for the dogs of Puerto Rico, and we are so grateful for your love and support!

However, with the grant money, we have been able to take on a Spina Bifida kitten that would have likely been euthanized if she was surrendered to a shelter. Her name is Jessica Rabbit and she is doing very well in her foster home. X-rays and a (very expensive) CT scan confirmed her deformities. The veterinarians believe that she is not in pain and can live a long and happy life – even if she bunny-hops to get around. I’ve attached a picture so you can see how cute she is.
Sidewalk Angels Foundation is a true blessing to small nonprofits serving the most vulnerable in their communities. Chattanooga Room in the Inn is a program that teaches women and children how not to be homeless at no cost to the clients. With a skeleton crew and hundreds of volunteers, we provide the support necessary for them to reach permanent housing and self-sufficiency. We can house up to ten families at a time and incur all the costs it takes to run a household. With the support from Sidewalk Angels, we can focus more on our mission and less on fundraising. We are so honored and grateful for the gifts we have received!
The Tunica Humane Society was founded in 2008. From the very beginning, we were determined to prove that a NO-KILL Shelter could work in the Mississippi Delta because we felt so strongly that the homeless and hurting animals of our community deserved a chance at life. We started with no resources and worked under the most primitive of conditions in a makeshift outdoor shelter. But we were saving dogs and lots of them. We always felt that if we worked hard and stayed the course, eventually someone would come to our aid and help ease our burden of caring for these animals all alone. That is exactly what happened when Sidewalk Angels Foundation became aware of our small organization. With their initial donation to THS, we were able to purchase a tract of land and an old building in the country. That building today houses approximately 150 dogs and cats on any given day and we have placed thousands of others in loving forever homes. With Sidewalk Angels yearly donations to our shelter, we are able to provide the very best medical care available for our animals. But Sidewalk Angels did so much more for us than just provide us funding. When they believed in a handful of volunteers that were trying so hard to make a difference in the lives of these animals, we began to believe in us and we have gone to accomplish so much more than we ever imagined.
