Bambi’s Hope Rescue is an independent non-profit animal rescue network comprised of dedicated rescuers, volunteers and foster homes, who all have one common goal, to save, protect and improve the lives of at-risk animals.
We operate without a physical facility or paid staff as a privately-funded organization. Any donations received are allocated to the specific causes they are raised for only, meaning not one dime goes in our pockets.
Although we began with the intention of filing, we are not a 501c non-profit, however we are an independent non-profit animal rescue network. Many do not realize that a 501c non-profit by definition is merely a tax status and nothing more, for which the filing of does nothing to prove or disprove the validity of a rescue. With the objective simply to be an effective and reputable rescue, we chose instead to focus our energy on one goal: to save and improve the lives of as many high risk animals as we could and to spread awareness about the injustices of animal experimentation, pet stores and puppy mills, abandonment, homelessness, over-breeding, abuse and neglect.
We welcome your questions and requests for assistance or resources. You are asked to forward them to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our mission is to prevent animal cruelty, educate the public, and rescue, protect and re-home unwanted, abused and neglected companion animals.
We are dedicated to providing humane care and shelter for abandoned, abused and unwanted animals, finding them suitable new homes, and increasing public awareness on the responsibilities of pet ownership throughout the tri state areas. We also work to save the lives of cats and dogs slated for euthanasia at Animal Control facilities and Shelters.
Our goal is to rescue homeless and death row animals and provide them with permanent, suitable loving homes.
HOW WE BEGAN
In 2006 I decided to started noticing rescue efforts online and began doing what I could through local networking to help their efforts. In 2009 after many months of helping my rescue friends network shelter pets I noticed that better pictures got more exposure and attention so I began going to my local animal shelter, which happened to be the Orange County Shelter, to take photographs of the urgent and in-need animals to network them in social media outlets like Facebook, Myspace and WordPress. Our first death row dog rescue was Bambi, (pictured above) who lives with me as my constant companion and inspiration for Bambi’s Hope Rescue.
Our success has reached as far as Canada and Washington where adopters fell in love with a dog or cat through a photo, and before our eyes, we watched plans fall into place for the pull, transport and rescue of many animals who otherwise would have had no hope.
As an All Breed Dog and Cat Rescue, we rescue animals from local shelters that are high volume & high kill as well as strays off the streets and from inadequate or abusive living conditions, placing them in approved foster homes while providing them with any medical care or training they need until they are ready to be adopted into loving, permanent and suitable homes. Along the way we make every effort to spread awareness about the injustices of animal experimentation, pet stores and puppy mills, abandonment, homelessness, over-breeding, abuse and neglect.
We operate without a physical facility or paid staff. Comprised of dedicated rescuers, volunteers and foster homes. We are a privately-funded organization, all financing comes from our own pockets, as well as contributions from fellow dog lovers. Our animals are in approved foster homes until a suitable adoptive home is found. We use a detailed application and interview process in an effort to make the best match between the animal and an adoptive home. If for some reason the adoptive animal does not work out in their new home, it is required that our animals be returned to us so that we can place them back with their dedicated foster parents to ensure they will never wind up abandoned or in the shelter system.
