Glen Wild is participating in a special fundraiser to support Rescue Dogs Rescue Soldiers, a powerful program that pairs troubled youth with abused dogs in order to build rapport and empathy between them, and ultimately to train the dogs as companion animals for veterans. This program makes a life-saving difference for humans and dogs alike.
Our fundraising goal is easily reachable by the end of September — with your help. And to make it even easier, an anonymous donor will match your donation dollar for dollar. That’s twice the help and twice the impact for even the small donation. Please click through and help us give a second chance to veterans, teens, and the big-hearted dogs of RDRS!
As most of you know, my journey with many of the animals at Glen Wild Animal Rescue started many years ago. Miracle the abused puppy that I adopted turns 13 this year. Many of the dogs that I took in had nowhere to go because the sanctuary they called home closed. These dogs have been through several moves with me. The journey was not easy but I learned that I could do more than I ever imagined. I learned how much I really loved these animals as I fought so hard to keep them alive and well. I realized who our friends are and how many people wanted to help. I also learned that my faith in God grew stronger and helped me make it through the difficult times.
Over the past three years my focus was on maintaining our programs and keeping the operations going. I have been praying for a place that Glen Wild could call home; dealing with rentals and leases was very tough especially when so many animals were involved.
My prayers were answered last February when a beautiful farm property was donated to Glen Wild Animal Rescue and last spring we moved our entire operations to our new home in Cherry Valley, N.Y. The place is amazing and there is room for all. Since we arrived we have helped 18 cats that are now here with us and up for adoption. We have plans to work with feral cats and have helped many dogs that were in desperate need of a safe haven.
Our new home was a former dairy farm so we are in the process of renovating our barns and doggie proofing our sanctuary home. We have a pole barn that needs insulation, heat, water and will serve as a great space for helping resue dogs with housing and training while they wait for adoption.
I have given my all and the hard work has paid off, but in order for us to continue our work and provide lifetime care, I need your help. Please consider making one time donation, or make a monthly $5/ sponsorship in the 2000 Club, and ask other animal lovers to help too. Please be a constant in our lives so we can be a constant in theirs.
Many thanks for your help over the years!
