February 14, 2018 marks the third anniversary of Rescue Express, and since the inaugural transport in 2015, we have saved the lives of close to 14,000 animals. Using large-capacity school buses, we are able to safely and humanely transport up to 200 animals out of areas in need of assistance, and by doing so help to alleviate the chance of needless suffering and in some cases, lost lives.
While all birthdays are cause for celebration, this birthday is particularly noteworthy as it represents thousands of saved lives.
2015: Cats=361, Dogs=2,644
2016: Cats=1067, Dogs=3,786
2017: Cats=787, Dogs=4456
Projected for 2018: Big rig=14,400, Buses=4,800
But our work is not done. Our goal is to continue to improve and expand the Rescue Express transport model across the country and work to reduce the number of animals needing relocation with innovative, multi-prong initiatives including support for low cost spay/neuter initiatives and lobbying, improved local animal regulations and enforcement.
Rescue Express transport services are provided free of charge to our rescue partners. We rely on the generous support from donors like you in order to continue offering this free, life-saving service to our partners. Please consider supporting our mission and donate today!
