A look at the past and hope for the future.

We wanted to take a minute and reflect back on 2011. Furry Friends Rescue Center has come a long way in just a short year’s time. So many people have dedicated their time, shared their homes with our rescues, given financial contributions, and devoted their time online to sharing and spreading the word. It is important to reflect on these efforts from time to time and we want to take a minute to say thank you to all those involved in this never ending process. 

Thank you to all our donors who have helped keep our rescue efforts going. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to help so many of the special needs cases that cross our path.

Oscar is a special needs rescue who has a broken leg.

Thank you to all our volunteers and fosters who have opened their hearts and homes to the rescued animals in need. You provide a network of shared responsibility that helps more than you probably realize.

A special thank you to volunteers Jennifer, Rosemary, Rhonda, Sabrina, and Karen who dedicate themselves as volunteers for us every day. Every one of you do so much to rescue, care for, promote and help us at the rescue, without you most of our efforts would be impossible.

Thank you to our Petsmart crews who keep our kitties cared for and clean. (Jan, Michelle & Emily, Susie, Sher, Nicole, Beth & Kasey, Oxana, Liz, Bonita, Stephen & Marcia, Rachel, Samantha, Cathy, Carrie, Lisa & James)

Thank you to Clover High School FFA for the fundraiser which raised donations of dog food, cat food, collars, toys, cleaning supplies and more! We look forward to working with you again this spring.

Thank you Ralph Turner for the donation of funds to create the website we are posting on today. This tool will be a continual part of our efforts and is most invaluable, taking us to the next level. Your monthly donations will be put to good use and we thank you for your generous contribution.

Thank you to Joe and Garland who worked together to build the site and create the content. This site will help with awareness of our organization, fundraising, adoptions, and finding much needed volunteers and fosters. A vital part to the growth of any organization.

Thank you Melissa for devoting your days to the rescue efforts on your farm. From rescuing cats and dogs (and even goats and pigs) to caring for the animals every need, Melissa dedicates every day to the continual care and rescuing the animals. Her two daughters, Shana and Angie, also participate in the rescue work. Thank you for not discriminating against any animal whether it be cats, dogs or livestock. And most of all, the animals thank you.

Thank you Shana for your beautiful photos! We love what you’ve done…they have made a definite impact on shares and adoptions. Thank you also for your care for various rescues and the cats.

Thank you Angie for your work on the farm and care of the animals, including our rescued mustang.

A big thank you to Hilary Sontag who works tirelessly in the arena of animal advocacy and has helped rescue and save many animals this year in her daily efforts. In addition to her work with Furry Friends Rescue Center her efforts include working on a HSUS legislative fund which publishes a scorecard listing the various animal rights issues and how politicians score.  She is working to encourage people in their respective states to contact the politicians who score high on animal rights issues.  The 112th scorecard has just been published and you can find it circulating on her animal advocacy group, No Kill Coalition.

Happy New Year from Furry Friends Rescue Center!

We look forward to 2012 and all the joy, tears and everything in between that animal rescue does to enrich our lives. Our efforts run on the support of our community, so whether it is a financial contribution, sharing on social networks, volunteering your time, fostering or bringing our attention to animals in need, we thank you for your assistance in these important parts of working in animal rescue.  

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
