The Pack directorship is a driving force of warmth, kindness and, loving support to a volunteer team that exceeds 70 members. Running a rescue takes huge effort and selfless dedication and, can be as consuming as a full time job.
It seems like there is always another emergency rescue to be made, more donations required, more more more to do, no matter how much has already been done. Keeping momentum going on the endless journey of advocacy and rescue requires stamina and heart and, an unflagging dedication to assist in any way humanly possible.
Because we are SO proud of each and every Pack member and equally as grateful to all of you out there for graciously supporting our initiatives, we wanted to showcase an overview of our accomplishments!

Rescue can be a wild ride that most people have no notion of! There are volunteers out capturing big fat pregnant mama dogs, picking up abandoned dogs, saving dumped puppies, collecting owner surrendered animals, all around the clock. All for the love of animals.
In only 6 months I am proud to share that The Pack P)roject has surpassed its own expectations in delivering aid and assistance and is fully ramped up for a big year in 2015!
