The special day of global generosity, Giving Tuesday, is now just three days away.
We’d be so grateful if you would donate whatever you are able to help us reach our goal of 100% Giving Tuesday participation for abused and abandoned animals.
To show you just how much your love and generosity matter to animals in need,
EVEN when the situation is extraordinarily desperate, we bring you part 4 in our 5-part email series - giving thanks to YOU - for your support which enabled us to save lives in a raging war zone and deadly hurricane...
Without your urgent donations, we could never mobilize for the animals as fast as we do… as we did literally from the very first day of absolute shock and devastation at Russia’s invasion of Ukraine beginning 24th of February this year.
Dogs, cats, horses, puppies, kittens, farm animals and wildlife were swept into the deadly crossfire.
You can only imagine the heartbreak for so many of them!
One moment you’re a beloved member of the family. The next, EVERYTHING is gone! Rockets rain down. Shrapnel pierces your little body. You’re homeless and alone in an instant.
You’ve lived it beside us: our rescue work for abandoned, injured, and traumatized animals caught in the Ukraine war continues to be one of the toughest situations we’ve faced.
If we couldn’t count on your donations to enable us to keep helping animals in Ukraine, how many would be lost? You helped fund THREE animal ambulances... a dedicated pet food delivery van... and a specially equipped rescue van that STILL races through treacherous war zones to save animals in dire need EVERY DAY in Ukraine.
You donate. We ACT!
Many other groups have moved on. NOT NFA! The need is still so great. YOUR LOVE and support keep us in Ukraine and wherever animals need us, saving lives.
And here’s the most amazing thing of all...
The ongoing emergency aid you rush to the vulnerable, injured animals of Ukraine not only continues to this day, but NFA supporters like you help again and again when other crises strike.
One of those most recent crises - almost unfathomable in its size and fury - was a near-Category-5 monster of a storm called Hurricane Ian.
The scope of Hurricane Ian was SO MASSIVE that in the chaotically violent storm’s path, only SOME emergency shelters were able to be designated as pet-friendly shelters.
As in the war in Ukraine, THOUSANDS of helpless cats, dogs, horses, kittens, puppies, and other beloved animals were ALL ALONE. Trapped in the sustained, killer storm. Soaked to the bone, afraid, and alone, stranded on rooftops and car tops as devastating winds drove the ocean inland.
Your love never missed a beat.
YOUR donations enabled us to prepare to rush aid to the animals, mere hours after Ian made landfall. YOUR support helped us pinpoint the best positioned and most qualified organizations, and select one in one of the hardest hit communities (Ft. Myers), to help trapped animals as the storm raged from the Gulf Coast towards the Atlantic…
... just like you did during Hurricanes Harvey and Laura in Texas – when thanks to you, we sent funds to the Houston SPCA that saved more than 2,300 terror-struck animals.
Because of amazing supporters like YOU, we NEVER turn our backs on an animal - no matter how desperate or how sudden, or how vast, or how dangerous the crisis.
YOU make NFA the one-of-a-kind organization it is, and we’re so fortunate to know you’re beside us - and beside the animals.
Whenever you choose to donate, whether for Giving Tuesday or any other time, our ability to rescue, rehabilitate and fight for the animals would be impossible without you.
Thank you for being the faithful friend for animals that you are.
For the animals,
Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!)
Network for Animals
P.S. Your kind donation of any size is ALWAYS critical to sustaining our life-saving work rescuing and caring for animals, whether it be in war or a natural catastrophe. With your continued love and support, and the help of our tireless partners in remote locations, together we WILL bring about a day when no innocent animal is EVER again abused or left alone - helpless, frightened, hungry or injured. Thank you so much, always.
