Animal Rescue Superhighway, A Guest Blog By Melanie VanNuys
The Animal Rescue Superhighway was created out of our deep sense of respect and love of our four-legged family members. We're very passionate! We picture a world in which every pet has a loving, forever home, free of fear, abuse and neglect.
But merely picturing this Utopian world was doing nothing to move us any closer to that end. I grew tired of sitting idly by and “wishing” to make a difference. I started thinking. Being fully aware of the incredible power the Internet has...it hit me. What if I could leverage that power in helping create this world? I envisioned a resource unlike ANY other…A website that is bursting at the seams with legitimate, authoritative, relevant and valuable information for like-minded, concerned pet owners. A place to come with any question and have the peace of mind that trusted knowledge will be there waiting. And best of all - I wanted it to be FREE!
We also wanted to lift the barriers that prevent putting pets in loving, forever homes simply because they were separated by a few miles. Thanks, in part, to the vast reach of the Internet, we have been able to grow a vast network of volunteers who so graciously give of their time when an animal is in need. Because of this group, the Animal Rescue Superhighway has been able to transport animals more than 17,000 miles – out of death’s grip and into homes where they finally know what it’s like to be loved.
We enjoy our pets. They make us laugh. They love us unconditionally. They even lower our stress level. Animal Rescue Superhighway is more than just another animal website. We aim to teach others how to be responsible pet owners through education and advice from others. Here you can find information on topics such as proper health, nutrition, pet-friendly travel, pet adoption and overall care of their cats.
We invite you to visit the Animal Rescue Superhighway and see how you can become involved. With this New Year comes an exciting new venture and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Until they all have a home…
