R.O.A.R. Update January 2013

Dear R.O.A.R. Supporters,


With January already mostly past, we at the R.O.A.R. Fund have been reflecting on 2012 and all of the ways we are grateful for your support.  If you’ve been thinking back over the past year as well, remember all that you’ve done to support the R.O.A.R. Fund and add these accomplishments to your list:


Because of your continued support:

  • Motambo (the chimpanzee pictured here) was saved from infection and malnourishment by the Jane Goodall Institute.
  • The National Wildlife Federation was able to negotiate grazing agreements that have protected more than 600,000 acres surrounding Yellowstone National Park and the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge; acres that will provide the backbone for a larger bison restoration project.
  • More than 81 dogs displaced by Hurricane Isaac were fed, cared for, and either returned to their owners or kept at Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans.
  • The American Humane Association’s Red Star™ Animal Emergency Services team mobilized to rescue and shelter some of the estimated 30 million pets affected by Hurricane Sandy.
  • Petfinder Foundation sent numerous animal shelters and rescue organizations hit by Hurricane Sandy crates, bedding, food, and blankets to replace all they lost and replenish their stores.
  • 50 volunteers traveled to Chengdu, Sichuan, China, with Earthwatch Institute, where they were able to assist with vital panda research.
  • EQUUS Foundation provided grants to charitable organizations, such as the Hoofbeats Therapeutic Riding Center in Lexington, VA, so children like Eliza (pictured here) can learn to ride and even compete in equestrian events.

 
Thank you for all that you’ve done through your contributions in 2012!  Here’s to a 2013 full of continued great work from our R.O.A.R. partners and many more happy and healthy animals.
