Alumni Day Message
Please try to stop by on June 3 and see what a wonderful group of people and pets have gathered to have a good time and to celebrate 30 years of unconditional love and hope for animals forsaken by others. In these 30 years, so many people have become part of the Animals in Distress sanctuary, and we honor them always, but especially on Alumni Day, for making everything possible.
In November 2002, we moved to our new facility, and that move has made possible even more opportunities to help animals and people. In 30 years, we have never asked for, or received, one dollar of tax money—choosing instead to rely on the kindness of people who believe in what we do for the resources to run our organization. Incredible volunteers, a dedicated staff, caring businesses, special friends—and hard work, combined with hope that doing the right thing, the kind thing, will always be the best choice, the only choice worth making, in the long run.
June 3 celebrates what has been accomplished, and celebrates what will be done in the future: lives saved, hope renewed, love shared, the world made a little better.Several surprises and events have been planned, including: a doggie playground where every dog can try out some homemade doggie agility-type equipment, several raffles - of a gorgeous one-of-a-kind handmade quilt featuring cats and dogs, an afghan with cats stitched all over it, and a special 30 Prizes instant winner raffle, a special presentation and then a toast to the next 30 years - plus cakes for people and for pets, and so much more. We wanted to share a prayer, written by longtime Board member Rose Yanger, since it expresses so much of what we feel.
