Once there was a rescue that was on the top of the world and all was good for the animals. Along came human errors, needs, wants, desires, outside of the rescue staff and little by little by little – the walls came crashing down and the animals are losing.

Few Steps From Home Animal Rescue is a volunteer-run rescue formed to help unwanted and abused animals. Their mission was to get them the medical attention they needed to make them whole again and find homes with real hearts for the remainder of their lives.

And this is exactly what they were doing until a few years ago when things went downhill. We will not bore you with the details – our bottom line now is that if we do not get some financial gain, we will have to close our doors; thus, leaving more animals on the street and being killed by kill shelters on a daily basis. One animal dead is too many!

For example - animals like Bailey, who is totally unadoptable due to not liking people (he has two people in his life at the rescue that he loves) constantly need food, medical attention, etc. We need sponsors for dogs like Bailey. And where then, will Bailey go? And, many cats depend us on a daily basis also for not only food and liter but for the hearts that work with them and give them the love and attention they deserve.

Circumstances are in the past and we are looking toward the future for God’s beloved animals. We would like to be able to continue to help those who no one wants. Please open your hearts and pockets to help us with our work and find a place that we can call home and, once again, give those unwanted animals a “few steps” toward home.

As we know "Rescuing one animal may not change the world, but for that animal, their world is changed forevever” and especially the “UNWANTED,” for they have no place to go. Our work is so needed and YOU are needed to keep us going. Please dig down deep in your pockets and give from your beautiful heart. We don’t want to close our doors – we can’t close our hearts. Can you open yours?

Blessings and thank you to all!
