**I want to sincerely thank everyone for supporting us last year! We raised over $34,000.00 for this incredible rescue! It went a long way in fulfilling our mission. Thank you all so much!**
We Really Need Your Help Again This Year!
Why Does This Matter So Much To Me? I always agonized over seeing dogs suffer & lose their lives; punished in such a cruel & irrevocable way for the fault of humans. Just like children, dogs are at the mercy of others; defenseless, voiceless, devoid of choice & without any recourse & with far too few protections.
As some of you may know, my mom suffered a very serious traumatic brain injury 18 months ago, which nearly killed her and left her unable to walk, talk, eat, drink, sit, move or breath on her own, for some time. She spent over the 7 months in the hospital fighting to recover. And she said something to me that was so poignant, that sums up exactly why this matters so much to me.
She said, "That just breaks my heart. Those poor dogs. I wish I never knew how they must feel but, I do. I know exactly what it feels like to be trapped, unable to move, unable speak, unable to tell anyone how scared you are or how much pain you're in. It terrified me. I never knew what was going to happen me. It was so scary not having any control over anything. My fate was in someone else's hands. And I honestly don't think I ever could have survived without my family & friends. How awful those dogs must feel without even a single, familiar voice to comfort them. At least I always had that."
That's what rescue means; giving a voice to the voiceless. In less than 7 years, over 2000 dogs facing Euthansia in the city's shelter system, have been saved by Rebound Hounds.
