As an ardent lover of animals, one of the points that will certainly cut my heart to the quick is seeing a person living on the streets along with their pets. It does not matter to me exactly how they got there – I simply want them to be safe, for their pets to have actually exactly what they need. I understand there are others out there that feel the same. I understand this due to Caring Hearts for Homeless animals and Their Owners, a group of hard-functioning individuals doing fantastic job on the streets of Phoenix. In the heat, in the rain, at night – this grass-roots organization goes out and performs much required outreach to the homeless animals in our Valley of the Sun and their owners.
Their Facebook page is administered by Dusty Lee, Michelle Lynn, Tammy Cooper, Amalia Chavez Hultsch, and Nora Stout. It is through this page that they coordinate their efforts, reach out to the community for donations, and share the impressive stories of the individuals and animals they encounter. The group, founded by Dusty Lee, goes out each and daily to bring such necessities such as food, water, puppy booties to protect pads from hot pavement, strollers for pets, leashes, collars, harnesses, clothing – whatever reason they find, they attempt to fill it. They have actually likewise raised funds to insight people get hold of shelter for the night, paid for veterinary care, offered transportation to emergency rooms for those that required medical assistance, even offered on the spot veterinary care along with the insight of veterinary techs within their ranks. The list of their good deeds is endless and ongoing.
They have actually been operating primarily in the Sunnyslope location of Phoenix so far; meeting at Margaret T. Hance Park, then heading out along with supplies. They have actually seen much and helped much. One volunteer, Courtney Pardo, helped reunite a homeless man along with his family, that drove 300 miles to Phoenix to locate him or her and bring him or her home. One of the hardest points to come by on the streets is fruit, and so the volunteers bring as much fruit as they can, in addition to the others supplies they bring.
As one can easily imagine, they face a huge task in assisting homeless animals and owners. They reason fresh volunteers, donations, items from their wish lists (Walmart and Amazon), and for individuals to “like” their Facebook page and share it. They are not yet a 501(c)(3), yet their organization is entirely volunteer-steered and all of donations go to assisting those in need. Donations can easily be sent to: Caring Hearts for Homeless animals and Their Owners, c/o Lisa Brown, P.O. Box 9458, Phoenix, AZ 850twenty or via PayPal to Alex04dancing@aol.com. They have actually meetings every Sunday at Margaret T. Hance Park, yet reason volunteers and help in numerous various capacities, daily of the week.
