On 2/26/14 I was very please to receive a message on our twitter account asking us to contact Pet World Insider as they were interested in interviewing me  about Rescuer’s Relief on the radio. Things move fast these days; a few minutes after 9 am this morning our first radio interview was held. I must say I was nervous at first– but, as usual, get me talking about ferrets or rescuing and I will forget my discomfort. The interview went well and we were asked to keep Pet World Insider updated often as we travel the country.. Not sure when … Continue reading

2/6/14 The  last few weeks have been full ups, downs and several rock bottom moments. During one of these rock bottom pits of despair I turned to a dear friend via text. I poured my heart out.

We would be devastated if one got out along the way, got hurt or lost…. Logic says we need to find some of them good loving … Continue reading

78 days and counting

Crunch time: Counting down to the day we quit. I will be quitting a great paying, yet miserable job and my husband will be quitting a low paying but meaningful and stressful job to risk our savings, our sanity and even our retirement funds. No, we didn’t just walk into the boss’s offices and say we quit. My husband and I have prepared for months. During this time I spent every waking moment and often times I should have been sleeping trying to find sponsors, supporters, and financial backers. This last week it began to appear hopeless, A grant we thought was … Continue reading
