We are lucky enough to be related to a wonderful woman who is dedicated to animal rescues and fostering. The time, commitment, and devotion of team members who travel the country to save abandoned and homeless animals are selfless beyond a doubt. When returning from a rescue mission, various members of the organization offer their homes, wallets, time, and love for these furry friends…… a new starting point….homes that are safe and filled with much-needed love.
