"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." — Mother Teresa
The numbers are staggering: A dog is euthanized in a shelter across the U.S. every 2 seconds. Many of these dogs are perfect and highly adoptable, perhaps only in the shelter because they chewed a shoe, barked too much, or their family was moving and didn't want to take them along. We must try to change these numbers; we must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.
I am running the NYC Marathon as a personal goal. More than that, I want to use this opportunity to raise money for rescue organizations that have saved thousands of dogs. These groups do everything they can to save dogs from "death row" and place them in foster homes, or boarding (if need be), until their forever homes can be found. I have never seen people work so selflessly as those in rescue whom I've met, worked with, and grown to deeply respect. We CAN make a difference...and we DO...one dog at a time.
All money raised goes directly to Pets Are For Life, and will be applied towards vetting, transportation, food, and all other rescue needs.
