Rescues' Promise Fund

You can make a difference today by donating to these deserving, but forgotten, angels.

A total of 31 years of life together, and now, they are alone. Please help us support Boss, Cookie and Mango on their journey to find their best lives.

Boss, Cookie and Mango lost everything in the same day.  An adult pit bull, a 17-year-old shepherd mix and a blind 11-year-old pug, surrendered together, they look around, one bewildered, one desperate for love, and one nervously excited.  Together, with our allies at Jersey Pits Rescue, we have rescued all 3 of these dogs and promised them a better tomorrow. This is Rescues’ Promise.  This is the power of partnership. 

Confusion, sadness, loss…after 17 years, Cookie found herself among strangers. The odor of urine and smoke are beginning to wash off her old coat.  It has been some time since she was lovingly stroked and bathed, and Cookie found a glimmer of hope beneath her despair.

Worried, scared and desperate for attention, 11 year old Mango, blind in one eye, was searching for his people. His hair is now gray and he can’t see as well, but Mango still has so much life to live and love to give.  Suddenly, finding himself in a place he didn’t know, Mango was yearning to be held and comforted.

Excited, playful and ready for his next adventure, three year old Boss arrived confused, but ready to meet new people and happy to find new friends as he was rescued. He enters the next step of his journey with enthusiasm, not quite realizing how lucky he was to be young and not yet forgotten.

Their eyes tell the story they can’t. None know where to find comfort. All three dogs immediately went to the vet for much needed medical care.

From 7 senior cats waiting for months in an overcrowded animal facility to a mom with special needs kittens, separated and terrified in the shelter, Rescues’ Promise is making a difference because of you.

Seven senior cats, who lived a lifetime with someone, found themselves in cages with no names at an inner city animal control. Seven senior cats, who have a story to tell, that no one will ever know. Seven senior cats, who likely didn't have a second chance at life. Until…Rescues’ Promise came for them. RBARI partnered with Four Legged Freedom Rescue, an incredible group in Maine that will be intaking all seven seniors, giving them names, love and forever homes! The daily care and medical expenses for these cats will be substantial until homes are found. Any donations made today will go directly to their rescue and care.

Why do we call this fund “Rescues’ Promise?” Because, this critical fund is the turning point in an animal’s life. It is that pivotal moment when a dog or cat in need is transformed from a homeless, neglected animal to rescued – it is that fateful moment when they are promised a lifetime of essential care and love.

A beautiful, young friendly mom, separated from her 3 special needs kittens in a busy animal control, with dogs barking outside the door.  One kitten was left rolling in his urine, as his more able-bodied sibling attempted to clean him.  They are 10 weeks old, but because of neurological concerns, two of the kittens struggle to stand up and eat and are reliant on their mother to nurse and be kept clean.  As soon as we heard about this family, we had to help.  We joined with our friends at A Pathway to Hope to share their story and reunite this beautiful family.  You can find updates on them on A Pathway to Hope’s Facebook page, where they are seeking foster and forever homes for these sweet, special cats.  Please email pathwaytohope@yahoo.com for more information!

Rescues’ Promise is about partnerships – it is about joining with you, our community of supporters, and other like-minded rescuers and rescue organizations to save more lives every day.  RBARI is fortunate to have a shelter and a devoted community of volunteers, supporters and fosters, but unfortunately, the problem of animal homelessness, abuse, neglect, breeding and overcrowding is bigger than us.  As a no-kill shelter, we do not euthanize for space, meaning that our kennels typically operate at full capacity (or more!).  That is where Rescues’ Promise comes in.  This new fund is dedicated directly to save lives, each day, whether the dogs and cats enter through RBARI’s doors, or we partner with outside organizations to sponsor their rescue, medical care, foster, transport, and so much more.

Essential basic living expenses may seem lackluster, but it is the difference between life and death for the animals rescued at RBARI. When emergency medical funding isn’t enough, Rescues’ Promise Fund will provide the essential living expenses, such as staffing, housing expenses, food, basic medical care, training and other basic necessities.

Donate today, and your donations will go directly to the care and rescue of these animals in desperate need.

 


Holly

Holly’s life has never meant much to anyone. She was found wandering an inner-city neighborhood, dirty and broken with a painful tumor on her foot, and taken to animal control. No one came looking for Holly.

Through our partnership with Jersey Pits Rescue, we are now able to rescue more pit bulls like Holly, with a focus on those in urgent need of medical care, but we need support for their critical care in order to continue this program.

Homeless dogs like Holly are in desperate need of life-changing care – which is why we are embarking on a new fund, Rescues’ Promise Fund, where every dollar you give will go directly to the essential needs of the animals.

Why do we call this fund “Rescues’ Promise?” Because, this critical fund is the turning point in an animal’s life. It is that pivotal moment when a dog or cat in need is transformed from a homeless, neglected animal to rescued – it is that fateful moment when they are promised a lifetime of essential care and love.

Holly is only about 6 years old, but she carries the scarring of a dog much older. She doesn’t appear to have spent many nights on a soft bed or chilly afternoons snuggling with a family.  Her sad eyes seemed to be pleading for a second chance.

Holly only has HOPE in her heart.


Polo

Polo has found his Forever, but he needs your help to live.

At 11 years old, Polo should be living out his golden years with his family, safe and content.  Instead, Polo found himself discarded at an animal control facility, alone and confused.

Polo found his second chance with RBARI, and even found a wonderful foster home. In a heartbreaking turn of events, Polo was found to have a large tumor on his spleen, and he is racing against the clock to have the tumor removed before it ruptures. We do not yet know if the tumor is cancer, as a biopsy risks rupture.  Polo needs urgent surgery to remove the tumor and his spleen. It is his only chance.

Polo is a cheerful boy with so much love to give. His foster family has fallen in love, and they want to adopt him, regardless of what the biopsy shows. Polo has found his forever, but he still needs your help to live.

Polo has received Rescues’ Promise. Polo has found a family to love him, no matter what. But, so many others are not as lucky. You can make miracles happen for countless more animals like Polo.

Avery

Avery was due to spend her holiday alone in an overcrowded county shelter. She is a tiny girl, maybe 5 months old, and extremely sweet and submissive. Avery was found as a stray in frigid temperatures, not wanting to stand or walk. Both back legs are abnormal, painful and swollen. She can stand with effort, but it causes her great pain, so Avery mostly lies there, waiting for help.

When we saw these videos and images of Avery suffering, we couldn’t turn away. We knew she needed a miracle, and we knew just who to turn to for help during this special, but often trying, time of year. We knew we could turn to you, our incredible rescue angels.

Avery was in need of immediate specialized medical care to determine the cause of her pain. Through our partnership with Jersey Pits Rescue, we are now able to rescue more pit bulls like Avery, with a focus on those in urgent need of medical care, but we need support for their critical care in order to continue this program.

Avery’s miracle is coming – we have faith in that – and in our rescue community to join together and give this hopeless baby a chance at life.

Homeless dogs like Avery are in desperate need of life-changing care – which is why we are embarking on a new fund, Rescues’ Promise Fund where every dollar you give will go directly to the essential needs of the animals.
