Have you seen our story?

It takes a dedicated community helping their nonprofits to succeed.

Tampa, Fl; Temple Terrace, Fl; Temple, TX; Clarksville, TN; and Lake Mary, Fl.

Whose community values help for the Veterans, for the animals, for Therapy animals. Who is in NEED?

Veteran Rescue can not do it ALONE, We need the community to step up and support us whether donating in kind items such as pet food and other supplies, or holding fundraisers on our behalf, or even introducing us to local movers and shakers.

It takes a community of supportive people working with the nonprofit. Please donate and share this with your network.

Veteran Rescue needs a new facility now. Bear, Queen, Numa, Angel, Chester, and others deserve the space just as our Nation’s heroes deserve the fresh air and animal assisted therapy, not being over medicated or suiciding.

The Need: We receive calls on a daily basis and referrals weekly from other organizations. Our current facility is way too small to accommodate them all. Cost of purchasing our 1st Healing Ranch is going to take a cash infusion by Dec 2015 of $150,000.

Fact:

Some areas such as Tampa, Fl have higher than average suicide numbers. The popular number of 22 is no longer accurate as of Feb 2013. See our videos about PTSD on our Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/veteranrescue

With an estimated 24 US Veterans take their lives every day! These women and men need our nation’s help. Many of our Veterans are negatively impacted by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury and depression. Transitioning out of the military is difficult for many Veterans; resulting in drug/alcohol abuse, relationship issues, violence, unemployment and homelessness. About 25% of those who are homeless on any given day are Veterans. Veterans may find comfort and companionship in have a dog and/or using equine therapy; in knowing they have the job skills necessary to gain and maintain a job; and knowing they have support of a community and the nation.

The Goal: Purchase an Equine Therapy Ranch where Service Dogs will be trained with their handlers, Veterans and Family members can go on Retreats and Heal. Rescued Animals will get a new start on life including Horses for our programs.

The Solution: Businesses and People Nationwide pledge to match funds and Donate Today to help Veteran Rescue Raise the Funds needed to purchase the ranch and immediately begin helping a 1000 Veterans and animals instead of dozens for the exact same cost per year!

What is PTSD?

According to Military Pathways, it is estimated that 11-20% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, 10% of Gulf War Veterans, and 30% of Vietnam Veterans experience PTSD symptoms. Of the general American population 2.2% of the American population, ~ 7.7 million people, may have PTSD symptoms.

Benefits of Equine Therapy:

Can grooming and riding horses foster recovery from mental illness? According to a recent article published in the Psychiatric Times, the answer is “yes”.

“Evidence has continued to accumulate; more rigorous controlled studies are being conducted, resulting in the emergence of a significant body of literature supporting the therapeutic value of the human-companion animal interaction.” An article reviewing the benefits of animal-assisted therapy has even appeared in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.

Veteran Rescue is close to closing on our 1st Healing Ranch just minutes from MacDill. Please share the link to all your follower, friends, family, coworkers. You never know who can donate, even if it’s just $5 a person.

We have several FUN fundraisers right at the ranch in question this September. The owner is selling the business and ranch to Veteran Rescue and must have closing by October. It has a creek year round, springs, lake, lots of trees, and wildlife.

Don’t our Veterans deserve better treatment? Don’t the animals in kill shelters or abandoned deserve better? Please help get the word out there.

I see all kinds of money going to dead or dying, why not help the living to succeed not commit suicide or self medicate. We’re not asking for much.
