PetRescueRadio.Com was created after the passing of my beloved Border Terrier Trixie who had to be put down on last Christmas Eve. She was 15 years old. Trixie is featured on our home page as part of our logo. She is the Border Terrier on the bottom right.
Following her passing I thought what if I combined my love for pets and my broadcasting experience and started a 24 Hour Radio Station (Not a podcast) that was dedicated to Pet Rescues and Pet Welfare while playing popular music of the past 5 decades. That's when Pet Rescue Radio was born.
I thought Disney has had their own radio station with fictional characters for many years so why shouldn't REAL pets have a home to call their own where listeners can get valuable tips and information regarding pets all while listening to popular music.
In addition to educating listeners about house pets, we also feature pets on our website from different shelters around the country that need to be rescued giving greater exposure to pets EVERYWHERE and we do all of this for FREE!! Oh by the way, out station is COMMERCIAL FREE as well so listeners don't have to sit through 5 minutes of commercials to listen to pertinent pet tips!
I realized this was quite a goal on my part but this was my way of doing much more than just volunteer at a local shelter and dedicate this great cause to my late Border Terrier, Trixie.
The reason why this Go Fund Me page was created is to offer something very different that has never been done before. A dedicated 24 hour internet radio station that plays a great variety of popular music which also includes many songs especially written for pets that are never played on top 40 radio stations.
We will also be adding "LIVE" shows in the future so our listeners will be able to interact in real time via telephone and text so we can broadcast special bulletins and even play "Pet Requests" for special occasions for your favorite fury friends!
We are the first station in the nation dedicated to Sheltered Pets from New York to California and every State in the union. Pets finally have a voice through our platform. PetRescueRadio.Com concentrates on all the good we can do to rescue these wonderful Pets and find them a forever home.
But the ONLY way PetRescueRadio.com can meet this mission and continue to grow is through this Go Fund Me page which will help the ongoing costs and daily expenses which includes and is not limited to Music Copyright Costs, Broadcast rights, Broadcast Equipment, Engineering, Web Promotions, Website Management, Marketing and more.
Running a 24-Hour programmed radio station is costly and raising the $15,000 would certainly be a good start and set this station and its mission in the right direction. I have personally funded all start up costs to get this project off the ground but I will not be able to sustain it without the generosity of the public. We will not be charging any shelters a single dime for our services. Our mission is one and the same and as long as we can get the word out to save these wonderful souls and educate pet owners all while listening to some great music we will be able to meet our goals.
We ask you to donate anything you can and spread the word to your friends and Pet Lovers everywhere who love their pets to keep our station alive so we can spread the word! Give us a listen as we offer up Pet Welfare tips at the top and bottom of each hour from 9am - 9pm (EST) and play great music in between!
It's hard to put a price on something that is priceless. I am looking to raise a minimum of $15,000 to secure the future of this Internet Radio Station which is unlike any other.
