On January 28, 2014, we complete our 2nd year as Apollo Support & Rescue. It has not been easy but it has been rewarding. Placing 472 animals in loving homes this year which brings us up to over 800 placed since we started in 2012. The majority of these animals were saved from our local Fort Worth Animal Shelter. Several others were saved from surrounding shelters such as Garland, Mesquite, Alvarado, Burleson, Keller, and many more. We have also taken in many owner surrenders preventing them from entering the shelter. We have taken in abandoned animals living on the streets and boxes of puppies dumped in ditches. We have went on dangerous rescue missions to save a dog’s life. We assisted some owners financially as an option to allow them to keep their pets. We have taken on some serious cases of illnesses and abuse. We fought distemper, parvo, and severe cases of mange. We provided emergency medical care for abused animals like Trinity and Isis (Star). We saved some amazing dogs from such unimaginable circumstances like Lucky, Teddy, Westin, and Freedom. We have also lost some of these special dogs this year which always makes it tough.
Looking back on all of our challenges and all of our hard work and dedication, I am amazed at what we have accomplished. Apollo Support & Rescue is all volunteer based. To do what we have done the past two years has taken amazing fosters, a strong support team and generous supporters. We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the hard work, dedication, and donations. We have learned and we have improved and we will continue to get even better. We know we can’t save them all but we know the ones we do save have a second chance because of your support.
Thank you for supporting our efforts so that we can continue to save more lives in 2014.
