This Spring, we received a grant, from the Bakersfield Californian Foundation, which provided us funding to assist pet owners facing emergency vet care for their animals but due to hardship do not have the financial resources to provide the medical attention needed.
Each year we have many requests from the public to assist with medical care when they are unable to provide due to economic times. We reach deep into our pockets to help in these situations and we contribute as our funds allow. Thanks to the Foundation Grant we now have a set reserve to help assist people who need help. We are also grateful to announce that through the generosity of those who support our cause we will be able to build on this fund and continue this service as an integral part of our charity.
In honour of all dogs in need, we have named this program HUNTER'S FUND. Hunter was the dedicated hunting dog and family member of one of our founding members. This Spring, shortly after we were awarded this grant, Hunter met her untimely death. Those of us who knew Hunter will remember her always as her part in our rescue. She allowed her human parents to open their door and share her home with fellow canines that were less fortunate; those that had been cast aside and found on the streets or in the shelters. It was Hunter's loving way and confident demeanor which showed these wayward strays the way a good dog acts.
We believe good comes from good .
Just as Hunter showed the way to so any dogs who were less fortunate, so she leads us to share and give in her memory.
If you wish to contribute to HUNTER's FUND and keep passing the light please make a donation to H.A.L.T. Rescue and indicate HF. Your donation will be used only to assist dogs in emergency veterinarian need.
