Francis was left tossed in a sealed container in a dumpster at a local store by my home. I only happened by chance to see the container moving; when I first laid eyes on him I couldn't even tell what color he was...cold, starving, and covered in scabs from mites. I took him home and with help from my vet I nursed him back to health. The love that he has brought me has changed my life for the better. We ultimately saved each other.
The Animal Rescue Site focuses the power of the Internet on a specific need — providing food and vital care for some of the eight million unwanted animals given to shelters every year in the U.S., as well as animals in desperate need around the world. Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
Each click on the purple "Click Here to Give — it's FREE!" button at The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for a rescued animal in need. Funding for food and care is paid by site sponsors and distributed to animals in need by Rescue Bank, The Fund for Animals, the Petfinder Foundation, North Shore Animal League, International Fund for Animal Welfare,and other worthy animal rescue organizations supported by GreaterGood.org.
In addition to clicking the purple "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button, visitors can help more by shopping in The Animal Rescue Site store. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds for the feeding and care of animals in shelters and sanctuaries.
