Always & Furever Midwest Animal Sanctuary – Golden Gala 2022
Established in May 2018, we have had the privilege of saving over 3,000 animals from high kill shelters and owner surrenders. Our mission is to ensure that these animals know love, kindness, and compassion in their golden years. The primary goals of our organization are:
Rescue – Always & Furever rescues senior dogs (as well as some younger dogs and cats) from kill shelters where the odds of them finding a home are bleak. They either are placed in foster homes or come live at our Ever After farm. Our open environment concept allows dogs living at the farm to roam free in the barn and sleep on couches and dog beds. Living in an environment as close to home as we can create. We have recently leased an additional site in Kansas City, Missouri where we can rescue more animals. Additionally, we have a cat foster and rescue program through our relationship with Pet Smart in Olathe, Kansas.
Advocacy – Always & Furever works with local rescues and agencies to advocate for animal rights. Engaging with elected officials, law enforcement, and other related parties to create positive change.
Service – Always & Furever gives back to our community through our Random Acts of Kindness program as well as doing outreach and assisting other local rescues on philanthropic causes. Recently launching our Operation LRB PAWS which assists shelters in need and David’s Day in memory of our friend David and rescue dog Annabelle we lost this year.
As a 100% donation-based organization, we rely heavily on our volunteers and supporters such as you to help our mission continue. Veterinary bills alone regularly reach over $50,000 a month and in addition, there are food, maintenance, supplies, as well as boarding costs for our dogs that we cannot house at the barn due to legal limits.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
