BENEFITING: ARK ANIMAL RESCUE INC
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2012
I am running the OC half marathon on behalf of a fantastic animal rescue group (The Ark Animal Rescue) that rescues animals from high-kill shelters, fosters them and adopts them out to loving, forever homes. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love animals AND running so what a great way to combine the two!
Currently, my husband and I are fostering the sweetest puppy who was going to be euthanized because he was considered "unadoptable" due to an injury. All he needs is a lot of love and a little time to heal and he will be as good as new and ready for his very own family! Sadly, if The Ark Animal Rescue had not stepped in, this sweet, lovable boy would have been killed. It is a small but GREAT rescue group with several very passionate volunteers (including me and Paul) whose number one priority is giving abandoned animals a second chance.
Everything they do is 100% based on donations and they need all the help they can get so please join me in raising money to help them continue to do this great work! I know times are tough for everyone right now so please know that no amount is too small! Every little bit helps so please do whatever you can and know that it will go to a great cause that I'm very passionate about! And, of course, everything you donate is tax deductible as well :) So, let's help give sweet, innocent animals that are abandoned and left to die at the local shelters a second chance at a great life in a loving home!
Thanks for all your help!
PS If you are passionate about animals but can't help monetarily, perhaps you would be interested in fostering a poor animal that is living on borrowed time at the shelter. Check out their website at www.thearkanimalrescue.org and send in an application! Fostering makes a HUGE difference!
