Elizabeth Hart and her partner, Kyle, announce the campaign to expand their animal rescue organization, known as “Friends of Emma”. Elizabeth and Kyle have spent more than 5 years rescuing and finding good homes for a variety of lost animals. They aid shelters, animal clinics, rescue groups and private individuals from all across the country – who send the Hart family the most dire critical medical cases. Most of the medical cases the Hart family has come across has been paid from their own pockets, along with generous donations. Despite the fact that their daughter, Kylie, suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, they have spent most of their time improving the lives of the little creatures they have grown to love.
They are currently maintaining two storage units (which we access weekly) containing their stock of medical supplies, fundraiser inventory, packing & shipping supplies, care furnishings, therapy equipment, household necessities, food, supplements and all of the “essentials” of providing for special needs animals. These units cost nearly 600.00 each month – funds that could otherwise be put towards more productive expenses. The rescue is now bursting at the seams with new friends, and the Hart family simply has no more room for the animals they love to help.
Friends of Emma is seeking funding in the amount of $200,000 to cover the purchase of the new home. If they are not able to move forward with purchase of this home within the next 60 days, they stand to lose all that they have put into it thus far – approx. $40,000.00 of their personal savings – their entire “nest egg”. Please consider donating to help them keep their rescue open!
