The Bridge Between Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that began in January of 2022. Since we began, we have operated as a a foster-based rescue, which means we can only save animals when we have a foster home for them. We’ve been incredibly blessed by the support we’ve received, and have been able to save 208 dogs and cats since we began almost 2 years ago. Our rescue has also grown tremendously in such a short amount of time.
With growth comes a lot of pressure to do more. We have made many new shelter partners, and have reached many people throughout our communities. This has led to an increase in pleas for help. We receive multiple messages daily about helping animals in need. We want to save so many lives, but are so limited due to being a foster based rescue. There have been many times where we have taken animals in without fosters lined up just to save their life, even if we have no where for them to go. It is stressful, but we'd do it over and over to save more lives. Recently, we've learned that a dream of ours could become reality which would help us tremendously in those situations.
After planning and researching for months, I am finally so excited to share and kick off the biggest fundraiser to date for our rescue. I have the amazing opportunity to build a small facility on my land that can house animals in need. A facility for us would mean more lives saved, a safe place for animals to go while waiting for foster homes, and a safe place for animals to come to if we ever find ourselves with returned fosters or adopters.
A new building for our rescue would open so many doors! It would help us save even more lives, give people an actual place to come and volunteer, an office and storage space where we can keep better track of all of our donations and supplies, and even more. Although I’ve been planning this for quite some time, I know it will take time for us to reach our fundraising goal, which is why we are starting now. Any amount towards helping us kickstart this new chapter for our rescue is greatly appreciated. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting The Bridge Between and our mission. We can’t wait to save more lives with you by our side!
