Animals We Have Rescued and Sponsored
You get a free t-shirt to run in which also helps spread the word.
Some of the animals we sponsor are animals that we have rescued. Some are animals for whom we have made a donation to get them out of a high-kill shelter. And others are those for whom we have donated small or large amounts to help cover vet bills, transportation and more – whatever they need! This year Running for Rescues has helped over 40 animals. Here are just SOME of the amazing animals we have been able to help due to YOUR donations and fundraising. Keep it up!
Meet Charla and Chelsea
These two sisters were rescued from a vet's office in Bridgeport, CT. They were neglected at the vet's office while parvo and Demodex mange ravaged them, getting much worse while staying at the vet's office. Lorin Greene & Dog's Day have taken these two girls in. Running for Rescues has made a substantial donation to help offset the extremely expensive road to health these two girls are now on.
Trooper is from Waterbury, CT. He is an older stray cat who needs a home. He is currently living with his rescuer, but really needs to find a home without other animals.
Banshee was pulled from the New Haven Shelter in New Haven, CT, and is being fostered through a great organization called Ruff and Scratchy! We helped out with his most recent medical bill. Visit Ruff and Scratchy's Petfinder page for adoption information on Banshee and other wonderful animals being cared for by this organization. http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/CT486.html
Marlene currently resides in New Haven, CT. Marlene is a discarded senior that nobody wanted. Ruff & Scratchy has a foster taking care of her. Running for Rescues is paying for her medical care.

A kitten we rescued.

Two kittens up for adoption.
These two guys were found in the middle of the street in Hartford, CT! Ruff and Scratchy have been fostering them. Look how happy they clearly are!

Lucky is currently in foster care in Connecticut. Poor Lucky was severely neglected and taken out of a bad environment. He's now being well taken care of and fattened up. Running for Rescues is paying for his vetting.
Lady is in foster and under the care of Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue in NY. She had problems after giving birth that led to some unexpected vet bills. Running for Rescues helped to pay her vet bill!
Meet Clementine and Gabby
These two feral cats were captured in Waterbury, CT. From there, Lisa Robin brought them to Westchester where Pets Alive took them in for a fee. Running for Rescues paid the fee and these kitties are now actively seeking homes!
Princess is from Connecticut. Princess was at the New Britain animal control, but is now in foster. Running for Rescues helped to pay for her vetting at the Nutmeg Clinic.
Diamond is from North Carolina. Diamond is the second dog that became chain-free through Running for Rescues' sponsorship! The Coalition to Unchain Dogs made sure that she was spayed and vaccinated as well!
Casi lives in North Carolina. Casi is the first dog that Running for Rescues helped become chain-free! Through the Coalition to Unchain Dogs, we sponsored a fence build, spay, and vaccinations for this pupperdoo. She is clearly a happy pup!
Saved from death row with hours to spare. This lil pittie, Romeo, was to be put to sleep quickly because of an injured rear leg. Pit Crew Pit Bull Rescue agreed to take him in, but needed someone to help with his vetting. Running for Rescues stepped in, as did many individuals who donated to his chip-in. Good luck, boy! We'll be waiting to hear how you heal!
This sweet dog is being treated for parvo. As of August 21, 2012, Brownie was doing really well. A Lab rescue group in Connecticut had her and she was having a blast discovering what Labs are supposed to do!
Tahoe, from the Queenie Foundation, is in foster care in Connecticut. Running for Rescues paid for Tahoe's neutering at the HOPE Clinic.
This little one was taken in by the Sadie Mae Foundation and is looking for her forever home. Running for Rescues helped out the Sadie Mae Foundation with Chicklet's dental bills. And Chiklet is now in her forever home!
