Loki's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? I decided to rescue, because every time I volunteer at the local animal shelter, it absolutely breaks my heart to learn how they were brought to this place and their fate afterwards.   Please tell us your story with rescuing.   For months I had wanted to adopt a dog and had been browsing on Petfinder and local rescues on Facebook.

Why did you decide to rescue? I have had rescue dogs my whole life. My parents have always been strong advocates for adoption over buying a puppy, and they helped to shape my passion for rescue.

The Stumpy Brigade's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? I have always wanted animals in my life and it was my husband that turned me onto rescuing. The idea of adopting animals was foreign to me since I didn't realize people actually abandoned animals. Luckily we have a pretty big rescue organization near us called Eleventh Hour Rescue. We did some research, filled out an application, went to the adoption center, and never turned back. The more we learned about the world of rescuing, the more we wanted to be apart of it. There are so many animals that are abandoned and need...
