Today we are participating in Blog the Change for Animals, a day that happens four times a year and is meant to bring together pet bloggers to write about an animal related cause near and dear to them to help bring awareness to the great organization and people working to make the world a better place for animals.
My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much decided to write about Rolling Dog Ranch in New Hampshire because once we found out about them, we were in love.
They are an animal sanctuary that rescues and shelters disabled animals.Their website says, “every animal who arrives at the sanctuary gets another chance to have a safe and loving home.”
Steve Smith and Alayne Marker left their corporate jobs in December of 2000 and started the sanctuary in Montana with the intent to create a place focused on caring for animals with disabilities.
“These are the animals who are the least likely to be adopted and among the most likely to be euthanized in traditional shelters,” they point out on their website.
About 50 animals live at the ranch, and nearly two-thirds of them are blind.
Seriously amazing, right?
You can virtually meet some of the animals on their website and in the summer they allow visitors to stop by the sanctuary. (Yes, since they are on the East Coast not too far from me, I’ve already mentioned to the them how I cannot wait to visit)
