Save Our Shelter

I Founded Lumberjack Rescue in 2011 because i saw a need for a Rescue here to save the thousands of Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Animals here. We have had huge success. Over 2500 Dogs and Puppies saved and in Loving Homes. That comes with a Price. Physically, Emotionally, and Financially. We took the ones no one wanted. The Injured ones. The HW+ Ones, the ones who needed Vet Care. Our Vets have bent over backwards to help us, and i simply cannot ask them to do that anymore. Despite our best Fundraising Efforts, the number of dogs and puppies we have committed to has taken a huge financial toll and we have reached the point unless we can pay off all our Medical Bills, we can no longer continue. We now owe over $20000 and if we cant raise the funds to pay these bills off, i will be forced to shut the Rescue down. This effort no matter how Noble, comes with a price. I am giving this Campaign 30 days. If on September 12, we have not raised the needed funds to completely pay off our debt, we will Close. Permanently. Intake as of now is Closed. If we raise the needed funds, we will work with our Partners to do what we can with what we have. This has been my Life. I feel like i have failed, though i have put over $250000 of my own money into it to save dogs. I guess this will determine how much people feel this is needed here. I dont regret my decision to do this. I do regret we havent received the support needed. I guess i will know in 30 days, as you will, if we are needed. Thank you to everyone who has supported us to this point. This is simply a Business Decision that as CEO i must make. I go to sleep at night worrying about our Debt, and i wake up worrying about it. The Decision as to whether we continue is now up to you, our 60000 supporters, adopters, and Friends. Whatever the Outcome, "Thank You". Justin W. Thomas Founder/CEO.
