"HELPING PEOPLE, HELPING ANIMALS"
Animal Rescue, Inc. operates a no-kill shelter for homeless animals and provides assistance to people and pets in times of extreme hardship, such as when a pet owner is diagnosed with cancer, becomes homeless or is caught in the midst of other personal or financial crisis.
As a young mother of two, I found myself facing what I thought would have been "the unthinkable" -- a cancer diagnosis. I had one young daughter and had just given birth to a new baby a few months before. Now, instead of being able to enjoy what should have been one of the happiest times of my life, I needed to start cancer treatments right away. And, to make matters worse, my husband was stationed overseas.
I felt completely overwhelmed. With cancer treatments set to begin and two young children depending on me for care, I knew I wouldn't be able to give my pet cat the care she also needed. Yet, I couldn't bear the thought of losing her, especially now when life seemed so precious. With no one else to turn to, I called Animal Rescue, Inc. for help.
Animal Rescue's staff assured me that they would take care of my pet in their shelter until my husband's return and until I could finish my cancer treatments. Knowing that my pet was there, safely waiting for me, helped me get through my treatments and our family was reunited with our pet upon my completion of therapy.
