Looking back at 2019
“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” – Denzel Washington
-------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019 has been a tough year filled with hard work. A year filled with tears of joy and sadness. Each year brings us new challenges and 2019 was no different. 2019 saw us continue work in the farming communities by helping our fur'iends, cats and dogs, with food, kennels, medical care and sterilizations and educating the community members. Loving homes were found for the unloved and unwanted furkids. We provided a microchipping service to you so that your furkids can find their way back home should they go missing. We've worked with other like-minded organizations and we've had the privilege to be assisted by valuable volunteers, friends and organizations.
We are only a tiny little organization in this huge cruel world, but TOGETHER we have made a difference to many lives.
We cannot thank YOU (supporters, organizations, companies, donators, volunteers, members, communities, farmers, vets, networkers, fundraisers, homecheckers and adoptive pawrents) enough for making 2019 another ROARing success. Without you, we would not have been able to honor our mission of rescue, adoption, sterilization, education and more.
Whether it is in giving funds to pay urgent medical bills, sterilizations or food for our maintenance programs, each gift is appreciated as it allows us to accomplish the goal of helping rural furkids in need.
To our small volunteer group, you are love in motion. Thank you for your compassion, selflessness, hard work and kindness. We couldn’t continue our mission of saving the lives of furkids in need and improving our community without YOU! Thank you all so much!
WE ARE PROUD OF ALL OF YOU.
Together we are leaving a legacy. “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” – Albert Pike
THANK YOU FOR 2019, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO 2020 with all of you!
If you are new to us, we extend an invitation to learn about our vital work. We encourage you to discover how you can become a part of our lifesaving mission where sterilizations are of the utmost importance.
Here are some 2019 ROARing stats:
There are 856 furkids currently under our wings in foster homes and in 52 different rural areas/farms. 602 CANINE 254 FELINE
472 sterilizations were done in 2019! That means 472 lives were changed forever and future litters, neglect and abuse prevented! (Some furkids in our areas were already sterilized previously while others are on the waiting list.) 342 CANINE 130 FELINE PS. We also provide vaccinations, tests, deworming, tick/flea treatments, medical procedures and food where needed and much more...!)
119 furkids found furever homes. Thank you ROAR pawrents who adopted these awesome beings! 81 CANINE 38 FELINE
74 special angels find themselves beyond the rainbow bridge. They left this world due to age, injuries and/or illness, leaving behind many human tears and aching hearts. 63 CANINE 11 FELINE
39 furkids are currently in foster care. 22 CANINE 17 FELINE
GAZILLION - the number of furkids still in need!
