We are All Those Left Behind Animal Rescue and Sanctuary, currently a foster home based animal rescue out of Morris, IL. Our mission is to rescue animals left by their owners or at animal controls as we strive to pre vent euthanasia of any animal regardless of breed, age or health concerns. Not only are we a rescue but we have sanctuary animals too which will live out the rest of their lives in our rescue because of them being considered unadoptable due to medical or behavioral concerns. All of our staff are volunteers, we do not have paid employees and all of our animals are currently in foster homes.

WE HAVE SUCH BIG NEWS that were are sooooo excited to share with everyone today, drumroll please....we have been able to acquire a modular building for our rescue!!!! 

We have been given such a very amazing and wonderful gift by an extra special donor who was so very generous to make it possible for us to be able to acquire this modular building. 

Now for those of you who are not familiar with a modular building it’s actually built in sections in a factory then put together on a building site. Since my husband Chris and I (Gina) already own quite a few acres of property this donor wanted to make the best use of their funds and thought the modular building was a great plan since we would not have to purchase additional property in order to get a physical building. After talking to the officials at the building department we have the ok to go ahead and apply for a permit for this almost 6,000 sq ft building to be setup on our property!!!! Yes it’s that huge!!!! It has electric, heat/ac, bathrooms, water, kitchen, lots of rooms and a huge open area!!!! With a few modifications since this was a prior used building we can add all of our creativity and make it everything we want it to be.

Now this will definitely be a process with multiple steps but this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity that has lifted the roadblock and has opened the road to our goal of having the ability to open our dream sanctuary and adoption center so we can continue to help soooooo many more animals!!!!!!

Now of course here comes the fun part lol there’s of course additional   funds and  materials we will need for the following things:

* Transporting the modular here (these are big sections, you know those oversized load buildings you see transported on the road that take up 2 lanes?Yep that’s what these are so we kinda can’t do it ourselves)

*a concrete foundation for it to sit on

*setup and connect the building sections and utility connections (anyone who’s in the country knows this well, electric, plumbing and waste pipes needs to be ran and connected to the building)

*permit and special licensing fees

*costs/materials for improvements and some repairs (new flooring, new exterior doors, adding a bath for the dogs, new steel roofing panels, that’s just to name a few)

These are items that need to be completed so that we can open our doors. WE NEED YOU to help in anyway possible:

Donate monetarily or donate materials needed (we’re preparing the detailed materials list and will let everyone know in the next few days exactly what’s needed)

Volunteer (we will need help with moving a lot of the office furniture that is currently in the sections, adding on sections from an existing fence, installing flooring and roofing panels, cleaning, demoing some things that need to be removed and I’m sure there will be much more lol

This is a dream that our rescue has had for years and we are still in shock that our time has finally come to have the opportunity to help so many more animals. We cannot do this alone, we need a community to help us down our path that we know might have a few bends and bumps in the road but together we can make it all possible.

We are a licensed 501c(3) not for profit and any donations are tax deductible and are always greatly appreciated.  To make a monetary donation click the link below, if you’d like to donate any materials, services or volunteer please pm us. Please SHARE so everyone can hear the awesome news!!!!!
