“Many rescues have popped up over the years and have come and gone. HFE has been a constant for 18 years even in the worst of times.”
“When you operate a nonprofit rescue, you rely on volunteers, foster homes, and donations. It takes a special kind of person to volunteer their time to help animals, welcome dogs into their homes, fall in love with them, only to eventually adopt them to their furever families.”
Colleen went on to say that Marilyn was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago and that while she was in the process of receiving chemotherapy treatment, she would be talking on her phone, rescuing dogs in need.
Recently, the veterinarian clinic that Marilyn uses for the dogs of Home Fur-Ever Rescue was purchased by a new owner.
The new owner sent Marilyn a message saying she needs to pay all of the outstanding expenses that the rescue has, or they will refuse to treat any of their dogs.
“We totally understand their reasoning but coming up with $22,000 is an impossible feat for us as a nonprofit,” Colleen said.
All donations are tax-deductible, and Colleen is hoping to help her friend Marilyn pay the outstanding vet bills so Home Fur-Ever Rescue can remain open.
