Since January 2005, A Better Life – Pet Rescue has placed over 800 animals in loving, permanent homes!
Less than 20% of people who adopt animals get them from shelters or rescues.
Be a part of the solution, not the problem.
Dear Friends of Fr. John,
A heartfelt “Thank You!” to everyone whose recent donations have been received in the parish office and who have donated online in loving memory of Fr. John. Funds received so far have been allocated for the immediate health care of his 8 pets. Six weeks ago, each dog received a veterinary exam and assessment, along with the necessary yearly vaccines and internal parasite treatments. Two have been spayed and two still need the procedure, two received initial 2 night stays at the vet hospital for heart worm treatment and will continue to be monitored by the vet, and one had successful removal of 4 rotten teeth and a facial tumor. Most of the eight dogs appear to be older and all have very loving dispositions. Incoming donations made in Fr. John’s memory will continue to be used for all outstanding medical bills, which currently total $800. All donations are tax-deductible.
Many of the dogs had ongoing skin, ear, and eye issues which, thankfully, are finally well in hand due to your generous and kind donations. Six of the dogs have been officially adopted by friends of Fr. John who have fostered them for the past 6 weeks. Two dogs, Goldie and Kate, are still in a generous and loving “foster home” but currently require long-term care as they continue to regain their health and recover from stress, skin, and a thyroid condition which has led to extreme hair loss and health issues. The volunteers at A Better Life – Pet Rescue are still in search of a permanent home where these two sweet dogs, a mother and daughter, can thrive.
Thank you to so many for making a difference and for acting so generously in Fr. John’s memory! Every donation, no matter the size, helps in this ongoing effort.Just as we assisted in helping with Fr. John’s pets, the continued mission of this non-profit group is to help save the life of pets who have been found alone, abandoned or abused. Please visit the about us page to learn more, or if you wish to make a memorial donation in the name of Fr. John or if you wish to adopt Goldie and Kate.
