Bedminster Group Selects Noah's Arks Rescue for April 2012
One Good Deed Can Save Thousands of Lives
Have you ever wondered how many emails animal rescue organizations receive in a day, and how volunteers filter the mail and respond? Jennifer Smith, president of Noah’s Arks Rescue in Okatie, SC answered this question with a lilt in her voice that made me smile when I realized that in spite of how grave the situation, every email citing abuse gives Jennifer an opportunity to rescue another animal from cruelty. “We receive 2000+ emails per day from across the country; there are six IN boxes to filter the mail and two separate email boxes for extreme cat and dog cases which I read immediately.”
After hearing this, The Bedminster Group decided that Noah’s Arks Rescue was our animal welfare organization for the month of April. Each month, Bedminster selects an animal welfare group to support; as a firm, this is our way to help to improve the lives of homeless, abused and abandoned animals.
Noah’s Arks Rescue is a non-profit dedicated to supplying emergency medical/surgical care to abused animals as a last resort to avoid animals being euthanized. As a long time donor to animal abuse cases, Jennifer discovered that her dollars were being spent in areas other than the essential medical treatment required to keep animals alive, so she decided to “step up for abused animals and help the animals that society had abandoned”, and in 2007 she founded Noah’s Arks Rescue.
Noah’s Arks is staffed by volunteers, they have no shelter and rely on the generosity of others to help them, help the needy animals in our communities. Jennifer negotiates medical treatment for downtrodden animals that are literally on their last legs – victims of dog fighting, torture and malnourishment. Once nursed back to life, then health, these animals are on the road to new lives with loving families. Ultimately, Noah’s Arks Rescue is an animal lifesaver.
Noah’s Arks Rescue is actively looking for local volunteers to help with adoption events and emergency care missions. For more information please visit noahs-arks.net or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
