We saved a lot of animals on our own for 25 years. Started a business with $100 to our total wordly wealth when Karen and I got married in 1987. Another recession. Lasted a year. Worked construction for 35 years. When I was working full time I worked my business part time. This latest recession took my savings and my business provided for the animals while I was laid off and there was no work for the first two years of the recession. 2010-2012. My business provided over $275,000, in 25 years rescuing more than 1,300 animals. 2012 forced us to go non profit. Back to work. Laid off. Until 75% of construction work was gone. Still worked my part time job and had minimum wage unemployment which I earned over the previous 45 years. Never asked for anything until 2012. Had to. Donations started at 25% the first year. The rest was out of pocket. Karen got ill and I was in an accident. Continued to work for 2 more years on pain pills. I guess most of you know the rest. I have a promise to keep.
And your donations have been very humbly appreciated.
