It was a pretty typical Friday morning in the Spring of 2018. I was drinking coffee and scrolling through Facebook when I came across the photo of the saddest looking pup I'd ever seen. Bizzy was a pit bull mix that had recently been abandoned at Trenton Animal Shelter after being hit by a car and badly injuring his leg. Before I learned anything more I was on the phone trying to figure out how to get him out of there and get him treatment. What I learned along the way (& what I am still learning) about the world of pet rescues and animal shelters inspired me to create this Foundation with a group of volunteers who had been at the shelter for many years.
Bizzy's story has a happy ending. We raised nearly $5,000 to get him the surgery he needed to fix his leg, found him a foster home and he's been adopted!
But every year there are hundreds of other dogs and cats that need our help in the city of Trenton.
They have one shelter and it is super small and very old. The Animal Control Officers that work at the shelter work closely with our volunteers and we do all we can to provide the best care possible to all of the animals. Working together has been the key to making lasting change.
All of the funds we raise are going to go to supporting the animals in the shelter. Medical care, both emergency and planned, rehab for tough cases and - someday soon - a new, state of the art shelter for our furry friends.
So ask questions! We're here to be a super transparent nonprofit. We LOVE animals and want all of them to get a shot at a happy, healthy life.
