WAYS-TO-DONATE---willowWillow’s Fund

Willow’s Fund was created in November 2013 after we rescued an exceptionally abused, emaciated pitbull named Willow. Through worldwide support and a rally for Willow’s survival, not only were we able to raise enough funds to give her the best medical and emotional care possible, but also create a fund in her honor in order to help other animals who have experienced similar levels of abuse and neglect.

Within eight months of the creation of Willow’s Fund, we rescued, and successfully rehabilitated, an additional 12 dogs and cats with exceptional medical needs (check out our “How Cool” section for just a few of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures.) This type of rescue would not be possible without this Fund.
