R.O.A.R. Partners Update April 2014

Dear R.O.A.R. Fund Supporters,

Thanks to your continued generosity, R.O.A.R.’s nonprofits partners are changing the lives of animals all over the world for the better.

  • American Humane Association’s Red Star Animal Emergency Services continues to reunite rescued and shelter animals with families.
  • Earthwatch Institute’s researchers aim to ensure that the habitats of the green sea turtle and the hawksbill sea turtle in the Bahamas are protected from coastal development. The 2014 research season began on February 13th and will continue through November 16th.  
  • EQUUS Foundation’s work rehabilitating Charlie, a once-injured horse thought to be too skittish for competition, allowed him to win medals in eight events in the 2010 Special Olympics in Ponder, Texas, with Kasey Barnes, born in 1993 with Downs Syndrome.
  • Jane Goodall Institute recently rehabilitated a chimpanzee named Wounda, who came to them sick and malnourished. Wounda is now thriving on Tchindzoulou Island, part of an expanded sanctuary, where she can climb trees, forage for food, and play with other chimpanzees.
  • National Wildlife Federation recently averted conflict between domestic and wild bighorn sheep by retiring grazing privileges on 12,000 acres of Montana’s Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, which will prevent domestic sheep from spreading fatal diseases to two herds of bighorn sheep.
  • Petfinder Foundation has granted 33,780 Cat Castles and 40,000 Stretch & Scratch cat scratches to adoption groups in order to reduce stress on shelter cats and ease their transitions into new homes.
  • Villalobos Rescue Center continues to work with heartworm positive dogs to provide the vet care and medicine necessary for them to lead happy and healthy lives.


Thank you again for your help in making these accomplishments possible!
