Fast forward six years…we needed a logo that was more versatile in a variety of platforms. We needed one that could continue with us as we grow while tying us to our roots…our commitment to all animals in our care – our commitment to being a truly never-kill organization…our commitment to loving each animal as if they were ours forever.
Celebrating Six Years of Rewards and Challenges Leading Saving One Life
Today is my sixth anniversary of leading Saving One Life Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. It has been quite the experience. Our volunteers often hear me say, “Rescue is hard. Rescue is emotional.” Those two sentences seem ever-present today as I write this.
Shelters Not Testing Felines for FeLV/FIV Is Not in the Best Interest of the Animals
I recently received a call from one of the local shelters locally to discuss some of their policy changes. We were informed that the shelter would no longer be testing felines for FeLV / FIV. If you aren’t familiar with FeLV / FIV, Cornell University and several other universities have a tremendous amount of valuable information on the diseases.
As COVID has taken our world by storm in every way, it has had a huge impact on our rescue. When shelters were forced to close to ensure the safety and well-being of their volunteers and staff, it created a huge gap in services and assistance to both animals and individuals in need.
