June 2013 This story is not about one animal in particular; it is about a rescue re-home program for "those who speak another language” that others need hear about . . . . Gregory's Gift of Hope, founded in September of 2003 in New Richmond, WI was born out of the love for animals and the need to assist as many as possible in surviving in an often cruel and lonely world. It is the ONLY no kill shelter in St. Croix County and is not funded by the county or by any other animal rescue group. Except for a few staff members, the care and training of all the animals at Gregory's is done by volunteers. That said, due an unfortunate situation, Gregory’s is facing a financial crisis and will soon have to close its doors - unless . . . . . . . There are far too many of these small, unassuming, rescue shelters. The community, in general, has no idea they exist. They have no idea of the hard work, the true love for animals and pure dedication it takes to keep a shelter functioning. While the fate of this shelter is unknown, those of us who are aware of all animals that were saved because of Gregory's efforts, we are so very greatful.
The Animal Rescue Site focuses the power of the Internet on a specific need — providing food and vital care for some of the eight million unwanted animals given to shelters every year in the U.S., as well as animals in desperate need around the world. Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
