My name is Rachel, I've been rescuing since I was 14 years old. I've always had a compassion for animals and have wanted to do more for them, two years ago I traveled from Florida to Iowa for better weather, housing, and better chances for the animals I rescue. I've found the perfect house to move into, the problem is? There is no fence, which is severely required when fostering and owning animals in general. I'm currently renting a house from a family member which ontop of the vet bills tends to keep the funds on a tight budget. The animalsI take in are what many see as "handicapped" and should be "put down" because of their issues, I see them as animals that just need the proper housing and someone who cares about them. I take these animals, give them the proper lifestyle and training before finding them a new home. Not only is this for the animals but it's also for me, it's chance to do something I've felt strongly about since a young age. My gofundme is to raise enough money for a privacy fence so I can continue fostering, training, and being an animal advocate. I'm hoping to have the funds for the fencing within the next 3 months, so I can get it put up an ready to move with my current foster dogs who are itching to get outside and play! Anything that is donated over the selected amount will be used towards vetting costs, feed, and will be used to slowly make the fence larger on the property line. I'm hoping that with the help of donors, I'll be able to expand my rescue in order to house more animals, this includes other species as well. I have worked in accordance with the Putnam police department on multiple bird hoarding cases and have taken in birds and also reptiles. Any amount towards my cause is greatly appreciated.
I rescue everything from birds to reptiles, I have worked jointly with PCAC based out of Putnam Fl with multiple animal hoarding cases which have included birds, dogs, rabbits, and even reptiles like iguanas. All animals that come into my care are neutered (yes including the rabbits) properly vetted and trained before finding new homes.
