Kirby's Friends Rescue is broke and our dogs need your help!

"Use me God, Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself." That quote is from Martin Luther King, Jr., and it pretty much sums up what motivated me to want to rescue animals. I wanted to do something bigger than myself..more important than myself...And I wanted to do something to pay back for the great life I had been given and the great parents I had.

So I started Kirby's Friends Animal Rescue ten years ago...it was named after my dog who lost a valiant fight against bone cancer. Her picture is on this page. I've been running the rescue and we have been self-funded since we started, and have saved and rehomed more than 700 dogs and a few cats! We are the ones who took the dogs that other rescues didnt think were good enough. We are the ones who will go out in the middle of the night to track down a stray or rescue an abandoned dog or free one from abuse, or freezing to death. We go out at night and feed dogs in
the scariest parts of town who's owners won't. We gave out food to those who couldn't afford it and paid for their dogs to see the vet and got them fixed. Weve kept people's dogs when they were down and out until they were back on their feet.

On June 1st we discovered we were broke! Plain and simple. We are broke.  I went to the bank to transfer money to the checking account and it was gone. If anyone wants more details, send me an email.

I have made the heartbreaking decision to close Kirby's Rescue.  I can continue to place dogs for people and help dogs in need , but for now, my dogs need a safe place to go and money to provide a place for them to live, eat and see the vet while those places are being found.. So here we are on GoFundMe and asking for your help.  The kennel that boards our dogs is paying their help to care for them with very little payment and for that I am very grateful. But it cant go on much longer. They can't afford to do it, nor should they be expected to.

You don't have to donate a lot....Any small donation would be wonderful...they all add up, you know. Send me five bucks. Anonymously if you want.  A few of those and I can buy a bag of dog food! I am grateful for any show of support.

If you would like to donate directly to my vet, please let me know.
