In 2008 Founder Lisa Bekiaris while reading a local Florida newspaper, there was a section entitled: FIDO & FEFEE JOINS THE BREAD LINES. After reading this article about how people are surrendering their pets because they can’t feed them hit a nerve – NOT in this country they won’t Lisa thought. There are many reasons why innocent pets get surrendered to shelters but this issue should not be one of them, not here in the US. Lisa’s heart had to do something, her mind thought – PET FOOD DRIVES ! They are always been done for us, now we must do it for them ! And so, Raffle Rescue was soon to become a reality.
Since 2009 Raffle Rescue, Inc has been Saving Animal by Keeping them in the Home they Already have!© “Helping Animals, One Life at a Time” by helping individuals who are finding themselves in a temporary hardship situation and may consider surrendering their animal family member to one of the many over crowded shelters where their days are limited. Our unique, innovative, different and helpful way to rescue is never been done in the rescue world ~ no one ever thought about helping those who are struggling to keep their own pets. In addition, Lisa did not want to do the traditional ways of asking for donations, she figured for those who do wish to donate, they might as well have fun too – so she created a Raffle Program :
“Take a CHANCE to give Animals a CHANCE for Life!“ So, it’s a win win situation for everyone, especially our animal friends ! The Rescue part, goes directly in the home !
Raffle Rescue, Inc has saved hundreds of animals and counting from being surrendered, distributed 3,000 lbs and counting of pet food, we also provide rabies vaccination and grooming*.
We have always focused from our beginning on our communities seniors, many we had found were feeding their pets their own food and doing without themselves. Founder Lisa brought this to the attention of the local county meals on wheels program in 2010, Lisa began helping their clients with pets they had thought about if they are feeding the pet parent well who’s feeding the fur kids. Currently Raffle Rescue Pet Food Program assists The Volunteer Way, The Unite Way, The Women’s Abuse Shelter, Well Care, many local church food banks and more all of these organizations contact us to help their clients with pets. These organizations all do fine work in helping our human friends we take over to help our animal friends.
As Raffle Rescue, Inc continues to grow by leaps and bounds, our vision is to establish a Low Cost Spay/Neuter and Vaccinations clinic to continue to expand our helping paw.
Join us in our mission to help our animal friends.
Without animals in our world, it would be a quiet and lonesome place.
Respect, value and understand all live we share this planet with.
