Annie Hart began Rescue From the Hart because she, herself, was a "foster fail" and so she understands the extreme importance and necessity for safe, responsible and empathetic, animal rescue. Annie and her team of volunteers take an animal from start to finish meaning that once she gets a call about an animal who is in need of rescue, she not only pulls that animal from its very bad situation, but she also makes sure that the animal receives the very best medical care that it needs from start to finish. Annie then makes sure that that animal is placed in to a loving home where people who share her same philosophy will continue where RFTH left off. Rescue From the Hart's care and concern does NOT end there. They see to it that each and every animal that they have rescued and placed continues to receive the medical treaments and training and mentoring that each case might require. There is no drop and run. Annie's care and compassion is something that goes on and on.
You can read more about Rescue From the Hart on Annie's mainpage here, but as the "parent" of one of Annie's rescues, beautiful Athena our warrior girl, I have a very unique perspective about what RFTH really does. RFTH saves lives. They create families. They bring together dogs and humans who end up rescuing one another.
PLEASE help Rescue From the Hart to win some of the $100,000 in grants that are being rewarded by The Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge 2015 by making a donation to Rescue From the Hart during this challenge! We ARE Team Athena and by making donations in Athena's honor, no matter how large or small, your generosity will help to bring us closer to RFTH's dream of being able to save more lives while assisting Team Athena in raising the $11,000 goal that we are hoping to achieve for Annie! The $11,000 is a personal goal that I have set for myself and for Team Athena because I KNOW that Annie and Rescue From the Hart really DOES make an enormous difference in the lives of so many, and that without Annie, Athena would no longer be here. She would have been put down just like too many beautiful animals who deserve second chances to live and thrive and to be loved after being abused, neglected and thrown away like trash. It not only takes good people and the desire to rescue these precious animals, but it also takes money and your donation could push us closer towards RFTH's winning one of these amazing grants! Not only that, but Rescue From the Hart also gets to keep ALL of the money that they raise during this wonderful challenge, so there is NO losing here! Everybody wins, but most importantly, the animals win.
So let's go, Team Athena!!!!! Show the rest of the village just how wonderful Athena's humans really are by raising the most money towards helping RFTH to WIN this challenge!!!(No ice-buckets involved, I promise :) )
