am absolutely IN AWE of the generosity of our rescue friends, previous adopters, personal friends and family members, and most unbelievable of all, total strangers who have contributed over $4,500 to our fund in less than 2 weeks! This is the second miracle-the first being my 4 horses ALL LIVED. All of you animal lovers have made it possible for the WALLS, ROOF, AND TRUSSES to be ordered! I pray it continues...I am so grateful for my brother Mike, his boss Joe, Mike's friends and work crew who have been hard at work demolishing the structure and clearing away the massive debris.A special huge THANK YOU for all of you who have taken time to drive up and personally make a donation or offer to help with the rebuilding, AND to my most wonderful volunteers who are helping me run the rescue and care for my horses in this time of crisis-Cindy T, Denise, Kristen, Tara, Judy and Kelsey. A special thank you to DON in North Stonington, who so graciously offered his barn for all 4 of my horses!!! AND to all who have shared this page!! Bless you all.(Pls forgive me if I forgot anyone-I am just frazzled) The dogs and horses and I are so appreciative. EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT ANY TIME TO VISIT US! Signed, Cathy Leinert, Founder of Cathys' Rottie Rescue, Rehab & Sanctuary (pictured is David Pine, one of our best supporters, friends and adopters holding his Hannabelle)

OMG! OMG! OMG! Cathy's Rottie Rescue has been TRUELY TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL !!! We have just been notified by our vet, TURCO animal hospital, that an anonymous benefactor has TOTALLY PAID OFF our bill! Words can not express our gratitude for this amazing and wonderful gift. You have reached out to us in our moment of despair and given us renewed hope! Hope that even though we are being tested by the loss of the barn, the washing machine, the flooding and on and on, we have the most AMAZING SUPPORTERS and we WILL continue our mission to rescue!! We are truly blessed, THANK YOU!!

So sorry to hear about the horse's barn! So glad that no one was injured or worse! Sorry that your insurance won't pay but I heard somewhere that it won't pay for damage due to the snow on roofs. I hope that you will be showered with help from others that have seen how much you do for animals year after year! Hope you can rebuild quickly so that the horses can be safe and secure in a barn! Best of luck, Cathy!

Maybe if you could share what wonderful things you do to help out abused, abandoned and neglected Rotties - and how you are a non-profit and your insurance isn't covering the roof collapse - More caring people would understand how important donating to you is. Just a thought... (my donation will be sent next Friday - thank you for caring so much!)
