Finally a weekend off to drive a leg of transport. I’m always asked about who exactly is rescuing these treasures we sometimes help to transport. Is it a municipal animal warden, a national non-profit? Well, in rural West Virginia along the Kentucky border it’s two incredible Wife/Mom/Nurses who are the rescue forces behind the 501c3 non-profit A Reason To Believe Animal Rescue. These busy women (founder Jessica, and ARTBAR team member Alissa, pictured here saving Molly & Holly) get calls daily (literally EVERY day) about injured/abandoned/abused cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies, as well as bats, owls, deer, possums, turtles (they transport these animals to licensed wildlife rehabbers/wildlife vets). They have no facilities (just their homes & 1-2 families willing to foster), no endowment (they have to fundraise with every new intake…which means daily), the closest vets are miles away, and the calls to save a life never stop. Last year they were able to get over 400 animals transported to foster-home based & small partner rescues in the northeast. These are the heroes on the ground. ❤️
Lab mix puppies Molly & Holly are now available for adoption through DAWS (Danbury Animal Welfare Society) in CT.
Just today ARTBAR took in 3 starving hounds. If you’d like to make a donation with a direct impact to their work please visit www.artbar-wv.org/donate and/or follow Jessica Hill White here on Facebook to get a personal look at the work she does. Thanks. ❤️
