We need to raise a total of $250,000 to buy a horse property and pay first year’s operating costs.  Would you be interested in helping us out? We have an event page ready. has all the information, ticket prices, which includes the meal, and purchase buttons. Christi

We’re going to lose Bear

Please help Veteran Rescue out. We must raise $250,000 in 45 days or all the animals will be in dire need. Bear is in need. Please donate, share. We can’t wait for our CFC funds to arrive. I know the focus is on Texas but won’t you please think about your own local charity in our time of need.

Bear is a 4 year old German Sheppard Mix breed with Labrador. He came to Veteran Rescue when he was just a year old from another country where he was saved from becoming someone’s dinner.

Veteran Rescue posted about our need for a facility, for donations, and sponsors. The money raised goes to our programs, vet funds for animals in dire need. We have not received any funds and now we’re going to lose Bear.

Veteran Rescue had wet food donated that was grain free and supposed to be good for your dog. Bear is vomiting blood and has bloody diarrhea. The last time this happened we went to the vet. Paid over $3000 and still lost our dog Cherokee. Now we have zero funds.

Bear is one of our Therapy dogs. We must raise $250,000, in just 45 days now as our location is for sale, to relocate to our own facility and be able to go to the vet when needed. To be able to buy only the dog food that doesn’t kill the dogs instead of using the food donated to Veteran Rescue.

We use Paypal for our donations. or click the link:

Thank you for your support. Please share.

Show your interest!

Would you, Veteran Rescue supporters be interested in obtaining a Specialty License Plate that benefits Veteran Rescue programs?

We would need a list of your name and addresses so we know which states to apply for the license plate to be created. We must have 1000 sales a year.

The cost of the license plate is in addition to what your state charges you.

How many people are interested? Please contact me with your interest.

Why we help Veterans

We hold events, share news that helps others, write business books to help Veterans transitioning, pay for education classes, help Veterans start their own companies and pay for that, pay to repair homes, feed those in need, drive them to appointments in addition to our main program of animal assisted therapy, recreational therapy, equine therapy, rescue animals in need and pair them with Veterans. Our adoption guidelines are strict to keep everyone safe and alive. We hold fundraisers, apply for grants, and do so much more for those in our community. We are ” A Warrior’s Sanctuary” and we do this to “Save A Life”!

Our videos show current and former clients who were willing to be videotaped or photographed. They show our sponsors, Miss USO, and pets we’ve helped.

As the Team page shows, my board is mainly Veterans who believe on our cause. It also shows why I do what I do. I come from a long line of Veterans including my dad who fought in Korea. I have first hand knowledge of how animals help save lives.

I strongly believe we can reduce suicide rates, divorce rates, and burn-out by utilizing Veteran Rescue programs. The Veterans came to me and asked for these programs. They told me what worked for them, what didn’t, what the VA had done for them, and most important the wait time needed. That’s why I operate on a nationwide basis to assist them.

My sons believe in the cause so much that one of them attended an event 2 hours away just days after having brain surgery to remove a tumor. He had a head full of stitches, but he came. That was shocking but it meant the world to me. You can see his picture on the Press Release page. The Tampa Tribune covered that event.

Veteran Rescue now needs help to get more people sharing our content, liking our pages, donating to our programs, our cause, our needs. I hear all the time I had no idea you were even out there because we need more exposure. Please help us in our time of need as we have helped so many of you.

Looking to hire talent

Animal Rescue & Veteran Support Services Trade name Veteran Rescue is hiring Strong Talent.…/veteran-resc…/looking-hire-talent

Veteran Rescue is looking for a professional “heavy hitter” fundraiser to obtain funding for the 501c3 nonprofit and their salary comes from that money. Inquiries send to

Our programs are nationwide and so long as the fundraiser is achieving results, they can be located anywhere. Virginia, Texas and Florida preferred because our ranch once enough funds arrive will be in one of those states.  Benefits will be obtained after a steady flow of income, sponsorships, and donors are achieved.



Emergency funding needed

Veteran Rescue bought 41 acres in Mount Vernon Kentucky which turned out to be inaccessible and not as advertised. We contacted the land company and they have refused a refund. They offered a trade to a remote property more expensive with no electric, water, trees, homes, or anything. We can’t afford that.

Veteran Rescue’s current location has just 30 days left before everyone is on the streets. Due to the current economy, loss of wages from 3 different people living here, we can no longer pay our current bills.

I have personally applied for other jobs to help out, but am “over qualified”. The Girl Scouts have been providing our animal food and supplies needed to operate. We can’t thank them enough.

Veteran Rescue has no current sponsors funding our programs, and our fundraisers are not raising any money. We do have a 5k race on November 12th in Lake Mary which we encourage people to sign up for.

Veteran Rescue is in desperate need of funding to relocate.  We thank you for any assistance provided.

Ground Breaking on Facility Begins

We break ground on our property for our new facility next weekend, July 22, 2017. We are clearing, taping, fencing, building sheds with sleeping lofts, cabins in just 2 days.

We are meeting with Governor’s Office, VA, and hopefully our Senator there as well on Monday July 24th.

We are accepting donations from the Girl Scouts on Sat July 29th.

We are meeting with our co-host for the 5k race event that weekend too.

Veteran Rescue is a very small nonprofit with very limited funds incoming via CFC 19270.

We are in need of handy volunteers that can work with construction type tools, help put up walls of wood, mix concrete and more. We are in need of items on our donations page to be donated and delivered to us.

The very basic cost of this relocation and ground breaking is $15,000. This includes food for people and animals, bills due, tools needed, and supplies to be purchased.

We operate nationwide and have our Headquarters in Florida relocating to Kentucky.  Please donate, whether it’s in kind needs on our list or cash, or your body volunteering onsite in Kentucky. Please let us know if you’re going to be there so we can expect you. We sincerely appreciate all that our supporters do for us in our time of need.
