The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are a group of artists called Rescue Nation dedicated to changing the plight of the rescue dog through art and entertainment. In this campaign, we are helping Save-A-Life Rescue.
We're taking a series of art photographs starring 10 rescue dogs to show the world the vibrant and heroic personality of these dogs.
We're doing this in conjunction with a campaign to save 70 rescue dogs. Save-A-Life Rescue was recently informed by the county that their building permits did not allow them to house dogs and they were ordered to remove the dogs from the property. The county gave them six months to do that. Those six months expired on September 16. We jumped in to help with an exciting campaign aimed at not only re-homing these 70 dogs, but also expanding the number of adoptees for rescue dogs by promoting them as the heroes that they are.
Our goal is to change public perception of the rescue dog from victim to hero. The links below will give you more information about those involved.
