Bully Breed Rescue Inc. a great rescued helped by Sidewalk Angels, helping to save this great breed.
This is a testimonial by President Heidi Lueders:
Last Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 with the goal of saving as many lives as we can from high kill shelters located in rural areas, primarily located in southern states. Since that time we have placed over 6,000 animals into loving homes through our foster based adoption program and helped find rescue for over 10,000 animals through Middle Mutts our shelter advocacy program. We have a very inclusive approach to rescue, which simply means we provide a second chance to animals who might otherwise perish because of their lack of visibility, age, breed, health, handicap or fur color. We rely entirely on our adoption fees, private donations and the support of organizations like Sidewalk Angels. This year alone, among those rescued, we treated hundreds of animals for heartworm, with the help of SWA these animals got the chance at a future and happily ever after. Sadly too many don’t get this opportunity because of the expense of the treatment, thanks to the grant received from SWA we were able to treat even more animals for this curable disease.
In the coming year we will establish our own safe haven to house animals in transition to our adoption program, nursing mothers, and those recuperating from medical treatment. This facility will also be home to animals who are considered unadoptable because they do not fit into a traditional home setting, however we believe they deserve to live and this facility will be designed to provide them that opportunity. We are thankful for Sidewalk Angels and their support, they have been there for us since we started and quite simply our success would not be possible without their ongoing partnership. As we embark on this exciting new chapter we know that we count on their continued support of our life saving mission. We are forever grateful to Rob, Mari, Maria and the rest of the SWA family for believing in our ability to make lasting change in the lives of the animals for whom we are truly their last chance.
Mid Hudson Animal Aid is a no-kill cat sanctuary dedicated to providing a safe haven for
abandoned and abused felines in the Hudson Valley and beyond.Our resident animals are given humane and compassionate care in a free-range environment while awaiting their forever homes. MHAA is a pioneer of the no-kill shelter model, boasting a mostly cage-less, free roaming environment. Separate FELV and FIV apartments have been created for special needs animals and no cat is considered unadoptable. As a non- profit organization, we subsist entirely on donations and fundraising efforts. Fire recently ripped through our isolation ward taking the lives of eight of our precious cats. We are currently rebuilding and tending to the needs of our 160 residents in foster homes. The generous support from Side Walk Angels has been an integral part of our rebuilding effort. Their donation will assist MHAA in providing veterinary care for all of our cats and new intakes and in providing preventative care upon reentry to the shelter
2013 has been a special year for us and not just because it is our tenth anniversary as a formal charity. It has been special because we have been able to help more of Jamaica’s forgotten animals than ever before by being able to successfully treat some of the worse cases of cruelty and neglect we have ever seen – being able to spay and neuter all animals on admission (as well as many dogs and cats in the adjoining community) - being able to build new kennels to relieve an overcrowding situation that had existed since Hurricane Sandy 2012 - and being able to expand our program of teaching Jamaica’s children kindness and compassion through our animals. We would not have been able to do all of this without the generous support of the aptly-named Sidewalk Angels Foundation. Thank you SWAF. We send blessings from Jamaica.
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!
