Help Rescue Captain Ron

After decades of unselfish dedication to the animals, hundreds of thousands of dollars and the kind of dedication rarely seen even in movies, the animal rescuer who gave it all away for the animals is himself in need. He overlooked his own future potential needs while guiding others thru emergency situations. He now lives alone with his companion Ruby, a red dobie who watches over him tirelessly. His muscles weak, but trying to rebuild and he is still unable to walk.

 If anyone has paid it forward, Captain Ron Fach has.

In animal rescue, we tend to react most to the injured dog or cat in need. We rush to the rescue of the forgotten and abandoned. All too often the rescuer we all called for help is cast aside when they can no longer perform that miracle save. Let's hope that is not the case this time. If you can spare the time to lend a hand, please reach out HERE.

Also, this fundraiser contribute to Captain Ron's needs entitled Help Rescue Captain Ron has been set up, in hopes he can hire nursing care and other assistance until he can progress to walking again, get long term care or sell his home to fund his own care.

Thank you for not overlooking this tragic situation.  He would never have done that, and we should step up now that he needs us. 

All funds will be held in and disbursed through a trust account in accordance with Florida law. Contributions are not tax-deductible.
