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.

Respectfully,

Christi Hubbard,                                                                                         Owner/President                                                               christi@veteranrescue.org

How a Rescue Happens: The Good and Bad

2 Rescued Together on St. Kitts
2 Rescued Together on St. Kitts

Yesterday was a comedy of errors in large proportions. If it could go wrong, it went wrong badly. My CEO and a volunteer went to 6 different stops which took them 22 hours to drive straight through. Rental Vehicle had poor gas mileage, no GPS, no toll pass, but it did have OnStar Thank God!

Our day began at 7:30AM on the road. Renatal Agency refused to serve us after owner of company arranged it.

Donor stop number 1 went well. Veteran Rescue received large bag of leashes, collars, harnesses for both cats and dogs.

Contract stop number 2 at partner facility didn’t recognize our name or purpose in showing up at the owner’s request.

Stop number 3 and 4 cancelled as a result.

Stop number 5: Pick up 2 new rescues that flew into the Country to be trained as service dogs and adopted out to person in Gainesville.  Google MapQuest gave street names, actuality they were numbered streets.. Multiple uturns, one very frustrated and tired CEO discovered the vehicle had Onstar. Of course it would have been nice if the rental agency had mentioned that. But no they apparently didn’t want their largest corporate repeat rentals. They lost 8 corporate accounts as of yesterday.

So finally arrive, circle around 6 times before finding right parking area. Then wait hours upon hours, page and call, and ask officials for help all to no avail. Finally customs supervisor helped us. Then getting out of the stop was a nightmare of large proportions because no one donated anything to this trip for the rescues. So no money, no way out. We scrounged up last of cash, and maxed out credit card to get out.

Finally on the road again, run out of gas…My reply? Over draw my bank account to make it back.

5:30 AM they arrive safe and sound.  Lots of photos coming.

Total cost of rescue: $500, Cost to Spay and Neuter them? Additional $250

We must also thank Guardians of Rescue for helping us keep calm with all the stress of this trip. Queen Bee and Bear are being trained as service dogs. They are already spoken for. The rescue eats all costs associated with rescuing, training, transporting, etc.

What is paracord?

Paracord has long been used by the military and outdoors-men for endless varieties of tasks.  The cord is designed for the line that suspends you from a parachute.  It has a tensile strength of 550lbs.  The cord is about 1/8″ in diameter composed of a braided outter nylon sheath and 7 inner strands.  The outer sheath has a tensile strength of 300lbs. and each inner strand a strength of 35lbs.

In a survival situation the cord can be used to lash items together, hoist items up a cliff or tree, snares, shoe laces, bow string and many other uses.  The inner strands can be removed and used as a fishing line, sutures etc. The uses are endless.
