BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Rescue Rebels by Cash 4 Canines, Inc.Delray Beach, Florida
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:We are a small foster based animal rescue in South Florida. Our mission is to help the homeless, neglected, and abandoned animals in our area find their forever loving families. In our short three and half years, we have accomplished big things. We rescue from local shelters and strays on the street. To date, some of the extreme cases have been: a GSD Mix from Miami Dade Animal Services that we saved and subsequently found out she had cancer. We had surgery performed, she underwent six treatments of chemotherapy and to date is cancer free! Also, a black lab mix from Miami Dade Animal Services had an injured leg that needed to be reconstructed; a dog we rescued off the streets of Miami that was heartworm positive; and a girl rescued from Clewiston Animal Services that was also heartworm positive and we treated it for heartworms. There are many other stories; and we believe these sweet souls deserve a second chance.
As a young girl, I always had a passion to help the less fortunate animals. In 2013, I met a friend, who is now my partner (Tracey), who shared the same passion. We both volunteered for a dog rescue and decided to begin helping on our own. in 2015, we started as Cash 4 Canines, Inc., raising funds (one of the hardest parts of rescue) for all different rescues around the country. We started doing auctions and raffles and donating the monies to various rescues. In the first few months in operation, we obtained our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization status. After a year in operation, we missed being hands on with the animals, so we obtained a d/b/a called Rescue Rebels, hence our name, Rescue Rebels by Cash 4 Canines, Inc. and started rescuing animals in 2016.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
Each time we save an animal & place them in their forever home is a proud moment!!!!
We would love for animal cruelty to be nonexistent in this world. Animals give unconditional love and it would be a wonderful world if humans were more of the same.
