Cathey's K9 Rescue Truck

$16,001 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 383 people in 39 months
On the evening of February 27th 2016 Nancy Cathey, the founder of Cathey's K9 Rescue was in a horrible traffic accident. A drunk driver hit her in the rear end and she spun out and flipped over a few times, resting upside-down after coming back from one of her adoption events. She had to be cut out of the vehicle and was transported to emergency hospital in LA. The truck was a total loss. Luckily all the dogs were accounted for and picked up by local rescues and animal shelter. Please put Nancy in your prayers! We would like to relieve the stress of this traumatic event and help Nancy replace her truck and cover any additional expenses that may arise from this horrible accident.

As many of you know Cathey's K9 Rescue saves hundreds of dogs a year all over California. She works tirelessly to save as many as possible as well as reach out to owners to help them keep their pets safe and healthy. This is horrible for her family, friends, supporters and the animals she saves.

Please say a prayer and if you can donate even $1 to help her every bit helps!

Thank you for your support!

When you look at the damage to the truck it's truly a miracle there were no serious injuries! Sadly all items in the truck were lost or damaged including blankets, toys, life vests, food bowls, etc. all the little things that keep the dogs occupied at the events or go with them to their new homes but that is small in comparison to the blessings Nancy and these dogs have received.

Thank you all for your continued support. We can't wait to see Cathey's K9 Rescue fully operational again and we owe it to all of you.

We are 3/4 of the way to our goal thanks to all the wonderful supporters out there! Thank you all so much. You are all so wonderful.

The kindness and support you have shown the Cathey family and all of these rescue pups; past, present, and future is amazing! Because of you, a new transport vehicle is within our reach and many more will continue to be saved from our streets and high kill shelters. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

All of Nancy's pups are now home including one special pup named Coco. Coco was riding in the cab of the truck, on Nancy's lap, when the accident occurred. She hit the windshield but only sustained a few cuts and scrapes when the truck rolled and stayed by Nancy's side until she was safely removed from the vehicle. As Nancy was being loaded into the ambulance, with Coco still by her side, firefighters moved Coco to one of the crates in her truck to keep her safe. Nancy now feel a special bond with Coco, who she calls her lucky puppy, and has decided to keep her. Coco has found her forever home with Nancy and her family.

More good news! An anonymous donor met Nancy at the shelter and covered the whole reclamation fees which ended up being $1095. All 15 dogs are out of the shelter and on their way back to Lake Isabella.

Big thanks to the anonymous donor and as always, thanks to everyone who is supporting this cause.

Glad it is working out. Go Fund Me is wonderful. Remember that a service was done and of course should be reimbursed for the service of rounding up the pups.....however it would have been a good thing to do by maybe charging $1.00 per dog? Imagine what a great PR move than "would have been".

Thank goodness. I can't believe the shelter charged that much though, it was an accident and not even her fault. There are good people out there that can do and help in that capacity. Yay
