Rescue the Animals, Inc. - Friends of the Abilene Animal Shelter

In 1992 we rescued our first dog from the Abilene Animal Shelter. Jake, shown in the picture with his rescued "sister" Stormy, is a beautiful Golden Retriever. We were shocked when his time ran out at the Shelter and no one came for him. After finding a home for Jake, we saved other animals from the local shelter, but soon concluded that we were not making any real progress with 10,000 dogs and cats arriving every year. With the Internet, came a new opportunity to show everyone the beautiful dogs and cats we were seeing at the shelter. We created a site and began photographing the animals every week. Adoptions increased, and we met other animal lovers who wanted to help.
Having formed a non-profit (501 c 3)corporation, Rescue the Animals was officially born on March 8, 1999. Congressman Charles Stenholm, who serves on our advisory board, introduced Rescue the Animals to the world.
