A Holiday Appeal for the Animals
Imagine our community with 500 fewer homeless animals. That’s 500 fewer cats and dogs wondering where their next meals will come from, where they will sleep and whether or not they’ll ever be loved. Imagine nearly 2,000 feral cats spayed and neutered, which ultimately could mean tens of thousands fewer homeless cats in the future.
Independent Animal Rescue make in 2014!
As 2014 comes to a close, we ask you to take a moment to support our efforts with a generous donation. Your gift will help us to defray the cost of food, essential supplies, medications, and veterinary care for the 3,000 dogs and cats we hope to help in 2015 and to meet our fundraising goal of $40,000 by year’s end.
We rely on generous donors like you to provide the support animals like Jake and Stuart need to survive.
Jake was an older, matted, heartworm-positive dog that landed in a full shelter and was not going to be given a chance at adoption. IAR was his only hope for avoiding euthanasia. We rescued Jake, gave him a second chance and showed him the life of love and comfort that every dog should have. Jake is now happy, healthy and moved into his adoptive home just in time for the Holidays! Thank you IAR!
Stuart was found injured, starving, and walking on only three legs. His fourth leg was stuck in his collar, creating a large, infected wound. IAR cared for Stuart through a long, slow recovery. Eventually we found an old newspaper article; Stuart was the beloved companion of a young boy receiving specialized care at Duke Hospital while his family, from out of town, stayed in a recreational vehicle to be near him. Stuart had escaped from the vehicle and after much searching the family returned home without him. Stuart and an overjoyed boy are now reunited and he continues to heal.
Jake and Stuart in 2015?
This is your opportunity to join us in our mission as we work to end animal abuse and homelessness in our community. Your donation translates into a second chance for an animal that might not otherwise have one. Your dollars turn into veterinary care, food, hope and happy endings for animals that so deserve them. Please, take action right now to help us reach our year-end goal of $40,000.
Thank you for partnering with IAR and for caring about those who need us most. From all of us here at IAR, we wish you and your loved ones every happiness this holiday season and we look forward to continuing our lifesaving work as we welcome a bright new year!
