RED HOUSE OF HEALING 1000.00 /500.00 CHALLENGE
Monday April 6th 2015
The R.E.D. House of Healing
Join us in this fundraising effort to replace our R.E.D. house of healing. R.E.D. was victimized by a devastating event out of our control in December 11th, 2014 when a tree from a neighboring property fell on our central organization hub building destroying it. We are sad the perceived responsible parties have failed to date to take any actions to help this longstanding 501 C3 recover. Though this has made RED a victim we will stand up and fight to continue our good works for the public and the animals we have saved for so many years. Our ethics will not be compromised by others behavior. We cannot wait any longer and must make this recovery happen and become stronger and even more helpful to our community. Through the loss we shall find strength and keep our life saving mission strong.
We need any combination of the following! 250 people or 500 people or teams of people to join us in the $1000.00 or 500.00 fundraising challenge.
250 people or teams raise 10000.00 each =250,000.00
500 people or teams raise 500.00 =250,000.00
RED ALERT RESCUE: UPDATE: 4-2015 Odin has had his surgery and is doing well. He is now in foster care and should be ready for adoption now.
LAST CALL ON ODIN. HE HAS TO HAVE A RIDE TO GET THE SUGERY! PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP!
ALL CONSULTS FOR SURGERY HAVE LEAD US TO WSU. OUR SURGICAL TIME SLOT IS RUNNING OUT. This dogs vet care is minimum of 3500.00. It maybe higher after WSU sees him and unforeseen issues that can arise even after surgery. The surgery amount has to be paid up front. He would need to be there tomorrow- Thursday. We are Thousands short on this so I am making one last Plea for surgery which is his best chance at a normal life.
3-4-15 3:30 I AM SORRY BABY ODIN. WE ARE TRYING SO HARD TO SAVE YOU. TO MAKE YOU WELL. THE SUN IS GETTING LOW IN THE SKY AND YOUR RESCUE DAY IS SLIPPING AWAY. NOT ENOUGH MONEY AND NO RIDE YET. I am still hoping there is a ride option and some donations coming for this baby. Window of hope and help is closing. 2 legs repaired for this price is pretty amazing. Yet we are still a long ways off.
SHARE IF YOU CARE: HIS LIFE CAN ONLY BE SAVED BY DONATIONS. ODIN’S LIFE DEPENDS ON IT! Here are some pictures of Little Odin at the vets. Odin has no idea why he is not able to be a normal puppy anymore. He remembers romping and playing and clearly misses it so. His future and his recovery are up to all of us. The x-rays are grim and this is not just a broken leg that can be splinted. From some horrible moment and event in time he has shattered both elbows. We had hoped they would be easier to fix but the grim news is he needs serious surgery and that will take serious donations. The first estimates were 5000.00 to 7000.00. Obviously that made us gasp and cry for Odin as that amount looks like a mountain at this moment. We are waiting for some of our rescue supportive vets to look at the x-rays to see if they can help him surgically at a more reachable cost. We cannot wait for those estimates or opinions to fund raise as Odin has been sitting broken for days before he got to RED. We will update as soon as we have any news on those surgical options and costs. Time is critical and we have to be ready should a doable surgical option be found for him. His innocent life belongs to everyone. Giving him the chance to run again is up to everyone. Will he know the feel of cool grass on a warm summer day? Will he know about walks in the woods, or get to see a beach? Will he learn to walk on lead and do cool tricks? Will he have a favorite toy? Will he find a human to love him as family? These things can only happen if enough people care about a ownerless puppy who only wants to be loved and to live pain free. Please join us in the fight for baby Odin’s life.
DONATIONS AS OF 3:00 PM ON 3-3-15 ARE AT $1060.00 plus 816.00 from go fund me and a pledge of 1000.00 if the goal is met. We are so close! We still have no transport from Kitsap to WSU. We have less 1 day to make this happen.
Special Thanks to Hadlock Vet Clinic for easing Odin's pain. You are amazing!
Please consider donation. To keep RED rescues happening, please, donate: RED PO Box 1741 Kingston WA 98346 http://www.rescueeverydog.org/donations.html We are a long standing 501 C3

HEALING RESCUE EVERY DOG FROM THE STORM
Saturday December 13th 2014
RED ALERT URGENT
PLEA FOR HELP: SHARE BECAUSE YOU CARE
The night of December 11, 2014 brought vicious
winds that carried utter terror and devastation to RED and my family. One day
you are providing love and care in a peaceful, happy little world and then the
world let's you know about it's enormous power. The lights went out. Then in the
darkness and the howling winds the thunder of a falling tree sounded like a
bomb. We flew into the darkness praying it’s path was not harmful. Yet the first
pray sent was to be unanswered. The enormous tree lay like a fallen giant lost
in battle. It lay upon RED. No dogs barked just the wind and trees screaming
their battle cries to the world. I remember hearing someone screaming in the
darkness through the ripping wind and thinking who is that but then realizing it
was me. No time to stop instantly into rescue mode. The RED babies are trapped
in the rubble. The horror of what awaited us inside was debilitating and you had
to fight the fear. Your mind instantly, praying for life. Just let them be
alive. Please protect those that seek to save them now. "Oh Lord, please,
please." escapes you lips and is swallowed by the
We shut off the
main breakers on the property and ran and even crawled inside and gather
terrified babies swooping them up into arms and carried by legs that were driven
by adrenaline and love. All out but the senior special needs animals in the back
room It was completely cut off. No tool so strong hands ripped away at the door
that made the prison that held them. All out and accounted for and we gathered
together in the kitchen of the Young’s house hold next door and were grateful.
So the hopeful prayer nothing horrible happened was unanswered but the gift that
was given to RED that night was life not taken. Every soul made it out. The
entire remaining night was spent comforting animals and getting him tucked back
in were they were cozy again.
Tears have been shed and every volunteer and staff
person is crushed that our wonderful kind world for the last chance animals has
been ripped apart. That be said not one person that has seen this has not felt
the enormous rush of how did everyone survive and feel a sense of miracle. I am
beyond thankful that we did not lose any lives and it was by mere inches. To
Shayla “Thank you” for saving Baby when no one else could. The Young’s "Thank
you" for running into the terror with us and opening you home to those in need.
To Michael, who bare handed ripped the walls that entrapped babies open, you are
a hero to all of us. I want to thank the people who showed up today to help. The
work to recover is beyond my single ability without the support of others.
Please help. We also sustained other damage to fencing and the list goes on.
360-779-5775 or message. We need this entire tree cleaned up split and stacked.
Mike P. did his amazing Mike thing and got it out of the building yesterday. He
said Wow I have never cut wood in a kitchen before". Cleaning,
Building, Hauling debris, Hauling supplies, feeding people and animals, washing
blankets and towels. I will be posting an organized list as soon as we can get
more of we feel for what we are heading towards.
To those that have
donated and joined in to fuel this recovery effort with donation and words of
support Thank You and our deepest gratitude. We desperately need donations of
building materials for repairs and donations of money, or gift cards to Home
Depot of any Lumber store. Is there a Lumber store that wants to help us and we

THANKSGIVING IS HERE AND THE SHELVES AT RED ARE EMPTY. RED is sending out a request for donations or food for R.E.D. animals. Please, make the Holidays bright for the R.E.D. rescue animals and the caregivers who need these supplies.
This is a fun and easy way to help a non profit rescue. R.E.D. has 80 to 100 animals to feed every day in foster care. That is 200 meals a day which makes 73,000 meals a year. We feed R.E.D. Dogs, Cats, Rabbits and Farm animals Sheep, Goat, Ducks, Quail and Horses.
DONATE TO OUR MAJOR MEDICAL FUND: R.E.D. is currently only doing major medical emergency rescue on a by case basis and cannot step in at a moments notice to save a dog or cat whose life hangs in the balance due to needed mandatory, time critical medical care. We did not receive enough donations to cover the last 3 major medical case we took in so they are now on a raise the fund first basis. This does not work for a dog that needs treatment for hit by car or so many other critical care medical emergencies. If a kind animal needs our help we would like to be able to respond immediately preventing loss of life or suffering. Please make this important part of our program powerful again. Donate!!!

"Because Every Face Deserves a Place With Dignity and Grace."
Wednesday December 10th 2014
PLEASE SHARE IF YOU CARE AND HELP SAVE A LIFE:
There are days that bring calls for help to your attention that if
rescue was “logical” you would turn and walk away. If one was to engage
the everyday logic that seems to be fine with a large
segment of humanity, rescue would not exist. Rescue makes no sense on
paper. It makes no sense financially or emotionally and everyday brings a
struggle of some kind. So why do we do this fiscally and emotionally
illogical work? Because It makes sense when a life in trouble looks back
at you and is grateful for comfort and your touch. Because it is man
kinds duty to sway the wrong we as a species are so skilled at creating.
Today brought the illogical rescue face to RED. She is tiny and fragile
and maimed. She is torn, broken and battered. Her fur is matted and
missing. Her beautiful green eye makes the one that is no longer where
it should be stand out in shocking contrast. Her body score is a 1. She
is one of the thinnest cats we have ever seen, and we have seen many.
She should weigh at least 9 pounds, but she is just shy of 4 pounds.
Every bone in her fragile body can be felt. But inside that little one
roars a giant grateful purr when you just look at her. So grateful if
you stroke her. It is obvious many of mankind have shown her, at the
very least, indifference. In her debilitated condition it appears her
life path has been a journey fraught with harsh experiences, but it is
clear in that same life she has known love. She knows what love is from a
person, and offers her love willingly and with hope still that we will
respond. She has no idea she is physically not perfect, and to some even
ugly. Cats do not pick who they love based on their physical
appearance. They offer their attention and affection based on how we
make them feel. It is a skill people should use more often. I try hard
in rescue work to always honor that lesson. So today the little grey cat
that still glows with love, found help when no others called upon
would. She has been named Clarity for the Clarification of what is
Rescue Every Dog’s “logical”. Love is always Logical at Rescue Every
Please, join us in the effort to save this cats life and
get her the medical and support care she needs to be well. Donate any
amount makes a difference. Rescue Every Dog is a long standing 501C3 who

FUNDRAISING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Thursday November 27th 2014
RESCUE REQUIRES FUNDS
We are have had a drop in funding for our program this year so the first and most obvious need is donations. We would like to prevent any cuts in services as the services are in more need than ever. If anyone has a fundraising idea or effort they want to put forward this would be an awesome time to help! In short the need is up and the donations are lower. Please help.
SAMMY A THANKSGIVING DAY
Thursday November 27th 2014
This is one of my favorite pictures. This was Sammy. He has his angel wings now and he left this earth many years ago but he was one of the dogs that cemented my belief in rescue. He came from a shelter that was not a "shelter." Dogs that came there rarely walked out. Tiny and remote and no adoption program. The kennels filled with faces of those that had no futures. So many years ago I walked in and changed lives there. At first I was not wanted but I stayed and gave answers to problems that had broken the people who worked there. Sammy was smart and joyful and trusting. He was a good dog, like so many others, trapped in the wake of humanities problems with no way out. Sammy was one of the ones saved moments before his life was to end by lethal injection simply because I was there and cared. I changed his fate and perhaps my own. This picture was his first Thanksgiving Day in his forever home. He was cherished everyday of his life because Rescue Every Dog came to be inside my mind and heart.
So, each Thanksgiving Day, I look at this picture and remember why I am working. There are no holidays off in Rescue and the work is always there but for me it is a passion and a calling so is there a better place to be? Perhaps, but I am happy feeding caring and loving those that have arrived in our care for endless reasons. Some reasons are tragic and cruel and some are just reaching out with kindness to someone in need. Each life special and unique and all deserving of a second chance at life. I, like Sammy, am also rescue survivor of the pain of human indifference to the suffering of others and the many years have taken their toll but have not diminished my belief that every life deserves a chance to be. The pain and the joy of this work gives you knowledge and strength in ways others may never know.
Today, I am thankful to those that have believed in the R.E.D. dream and mission that "Every Face Deserves a Place With Dignity and Grace." I am thankful we have been able to answer calls for help that heal the hearts and minds of the lost and bodies of the broken and abused. May the goodness found inside those special people who care allow those life saving works to continue. Happy Holidays and Thank You, to all of you who have cared about R.E..D and the caregivers and the animals that have needed our help. Thank you for your friendship and support. May the R.E.D. journey to save lives continue standing firmly on the foundation of love and compassion.
Sammy, for the lessons you gave me so many years ago, I am Thankful and may R.E.D. always be here to help the Sammy's of the world.

THE TWISS GIRLS
Thursday November 27th 2014
The girls are old enough to know so many things, in their five years of life. They are proud that they are good dogs. Their momma tells them so. They have learned from their beloved human, they love and trust. The human that created their cozy world and cherished them all their days. They know she loves them as she tells them how important they are to her and they are good at loving her. She has always been there for them. She has been to quiet lately and they are worried. They have tried extra hard to not be a bother. Now she seems to be gone so long. They sit together in the soft beds she made for them, waiting for the sounds of her arrival. The car in the drive and the keys in the door. They anticipate the joyous greeting they will give her. A little tail wags in faithful belief and anticipation. Why is she so late? Why has she not come back for us? What these two little girls do not know is that they will wait for their momma to come home to no avail. She is not coming home again. They cannot know what this even means when kind people whisper to them about the sad times that have come on the October winds.
We have received a plea from the family of the woman that has cherished her babies and they have loved her. They need a place to stay until a new life path and home can be found for them. Please, help us give these little ones safe haven with Rescue Every Dog and make a donation to sponsor their care costs. Please consider fostering or adopting these little ones. Please, help us honor a good dog owner and her beloved babies.
RESCUE UPDATE: So the sad little Twiss sisters came to Rescue Every dog last week. They are very much a work in progress at this point. Their human mom had been unwell for sometime and their care was the best she could do for them. Sadly, they have some serious issues to over come and they will take time and as always money. Kameer aka Camille the Chihuahua girl is beyond chubby and is one of the most over weight dogs we have seen. There was way more dog under the blanket than that cute face. She is double her correct body weight. She is a nice girl though and came around quickly in personality. The other little one is Baby. She is very shy and does not function well under any changes. She is very reliant on her friend Kameer aka Camille. We have been having to use extreme care while handing her. However, tonight she has made a break through and allowed us to handle her with no blanket. The blanket handling to swaddle her has been for our safety. Patience wins again. She seems relieved tonight to be held in loving arms and relaxed. She has dental and eye issues that need vet care. We still need sponsors for these dogs. They need a lot of vet care and only received 25$ in sponsor donors to cover the thousand plus $ and they will cost R.E.D. We are please we gave their owner the ability to know the dogs she called her family are safe. No one should leave this earth afraid of what would happen to the most important friends they have. We are please and proud to have given her compassion and peace.

We received a call from a special girl who seems much wiser than the adults that allowed the issue she is trying to solve to occur. She has asked for help to save 6 rabbits that were a part of a school science project. She was not in the program but became aware that the rabbits were no longer needed and need to be relocated ASAP. This is not a breed that can sit unattended due to the wool breed grooming needs and normal daily care needed by all rabbits. They are Angora's and 4) are young litter mates made up of 3 girls and 1 boy. Their is also the original mom and Dad. They are all nice bunnies and must move. Angoras are known for their gentle natures. Please, help us show this wise girl there is a point in calling for help and that there are wise and caring people out there that hear her. Youth rescuers are guided by the example of others that lead the way. We need donations to pay for vet care and spay neuter and food and housing for these rabbits. Foster home offers would be appreciated. Other rabbit rescues may also contact us if you can help take a couple of these buns. We do not have space for all of these nice rabbits unless others offer donations and space and we hate to leave some behind.

RED ALERT ADOPTION FLASH: We had a super special adoption. Basil came to RED after she had been severely mauled by a cats and needed much care. She recovered under our care and she and I learned to love one another and have a close bunny human bond. She was with RED for over 4 years. We had her so long we bonded her to a wonderful bunny named Sam and they were truly in love. Fate was not on her side though. She lost her beloved bonded bunny buddy Sam several months ago and has been missing him. This is one of my favorite fosters and she has served on RED's outreach education team and has given the gift of knowledge to so many. We are happy to say at long last our sweet Basil was adopted today to a amazing home. Here are some pictures of her adoption. I miss her and it was hard seeing her go but adore this adoptive home. Her new Husbun is pretty darn handsome! I want to thank her new human family for taking home a mature bunny. So often after the age of 3 people no longer want bunnies even though when spayed they can live 10 to 15 years. Miss you Basil but happy you are off to a fabulous new home. Hoppy times my sweet Basil Bunny.

The neglect changes you. The abuse hardens you.
The suffering breaks you.
The ignorance angers you.
The indifference disturbs you.
The injustice destroys you.
On a daily basis...your faith will be tested.
Your heart will be wounded...
Your soul will be altered.
On a weekly basis...you'll question yourself.
You'll question your strength.
You'll question the world.
On a monthly basis...you'll fall down.
You'll get up.
You'll go on...
On a yearly basis...you'll look back...
You'll see faces...
You couldn't save them.
You'll learn to mourn.
You'll learn to trust a little less.
To do a little more.
To fight a little harder.
You'll learn to try.
You'll learn to fail.
You'll learn when to hold on.
When to give up.
When to let go.
You'll learn who you are.
What you stand for.
Why that matters.
Then... at time... you'll forget why you matter.
You'll question what you're doing.
You'll wonder if it's worth it.
But....here's the good news... When you forget..
When you question...
When you wonder...
All you have to do...
Is take a look around...
And you'll see them.
You'll see their faces.
You'll see their smiles.
You'll feel their love.
In their eyes, you'll see their journeys...
You'll remember their beginnings...
You'll know how far they've come...
You'll remember when they didn't know you...
When they didn't trust you...
When they'd given up.
You'll remember how you healed them...
How you loved them...
How they loved you, too.
And as you look back...
You'll want to move forward...
For them... and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you'll look around...
To find the differences made... the hope given... and the lives saved...
Because you existed.
In those moments, when you look into their eyes... every doubt will be erased.
Every question will be answered.
Every worry will subside.
Because in that instant... in each of your hearts...
You both share the very same thought: "Every bit of pain was worth it...for this moment here with you."
And honestly... no matter what else happens...
Those moments hold all the strength you need...
To keep going.
Rescue is pain.
Rescue is joy.
Rescue is worth it...because they are worth it.
And that's the honest truth.

A Home of Healing for the Animals of Rescue Every Dog
Shelter workers give a last embrace.
The lives are gone without a trace.
Quite simply just for lack of space.
As a group are strong.
We will work to right this wrong,
So one more can still belong.
For in this world,
Each and every face,
Surely deserves to have a place,
To fill with dignity and grace.
~Tiami Coleburg & Ray Coleburg
Dear RED Supporters and
UPDATE 11-2014: We have one last chance at this option for maintaining the RED programs successful path and growth of RED's mission and the animals who depend on our rescue present and future. There is an offer of approximately 190,000.00 for this property immediately. this option closes this month. See below and if you have a interest in helping making a truly loving place for animals in need call Tiami. RED needs a home to call it's own.
IF NOT YOU THEN WHO WILL HELP THOSE IN NEED?
I am sending a special request for help with a dream
that means so much to our RED mission of saving lives. A Home of Healing for the Animals of Rescue
Every Dog. Our effort to fund a safe haven for animals is in the powerful words
of Maya Angelou, "The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we
can go as we are and not be questioned". Rescue
cannot happen if there is no safe place for the rescued to go. Our RED home is
piece of the "Save a life puzzle" that helps make large shelters, their staff
and animals in need succeed. The calls for help for the unique lives in need
that are the focus of R.E.D.'s life saving mission always come but the solutions
for them depend on everyone helping. A moment of compassion can indeed change
fate for those caught in the river of human indifference.
Abandonment, abuse, neglect and
needless death. These are all things that thousands of companion animals face
every day. Their only hope is the many good people who support rescue. R.E.D.
(Rescue Every Dog) is one group of caring people who are part of this effort and
believes that "Every Face Deserves a Place with Dignity and Grace". R.E.D. is a
compassionate 501 C3 Non Profit Rescue that has been saving animal lives of all
ages, sizes, and emotional and medical conditions for 20 years. Their small home
style way of rescue is a little slice of heaven for the many last chance animals
who have come in needing love, medical care, and a second chance of living a
happy life. R.E.D. is committed to saving the lives and providing quality care
to exceptional animals in need, and in turn, supporting the people who seek
lifesaving assistance for those amazing animals' lives. When others say, "No",
R.E.D. is known for saying, "Yes", we can help. R.E.D. doesn't discriminate when
it comes to animals in need, and currently cares for dogs, indoor only cats, house bunnies, horses and ponies, goats, and
sheep. They have changed the lives of not only animals, but also the owners who
had nowhere else to turn when they needed help for their animals, and shelter
workers struggling with life and death choices for animals at animal public
shelters. R.E.D. also has a dedication to wildlife and works to have our rescue
effort enhance the chances for wildlife to thrive along side our rescued
companion animals. Our current base location also provides walking trails for
training, and safe dedicated acreage for wildlife including native rabbits, wild
wood ducks and native birds, deer, and many others.
R.E.D. now has a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to expand their rescue by buying the foreclosed house and property
next door. This has been a big dream of R.E.D.'s for a long time, but R.E.D. is
used to dreaming big for its rescue animals. Time is critical as this property
is scheduled to go to Public Auction on the court house steps. In short,
auctioned properties are not financed by banks and you must pay for them at the
auction. The nature of the property's current auction status is a threat to
R.E.D.'s current program and long time location should this neighboring property
be won at auction by someone that may not have a common vision with R.E.D.'s
rescue mission and current wildlife dedicated
habitat area. We do not know what the bid price at auction will be but we
estimate we need to raise $200,000.00 to $250,000 to purchase the farmland,
house, and outbuildings which we dream would become a new rehab home for the
animals that need a place to recover emotionally and medically before going on
to forever homes. This new location will improve and expand the amazing work
already done at R.E.D. for many years and give so many more options for R.E.D.,
the communities we serve, and the animals that so desperately need the love and
support of all of us. Should R.E.D. fail to reach the required amount to win the
bid, or navigate a purchase, all donations made are tax deductible, and will be
used to fund R.E.D.'s life saving 501 C3 mission. Please, join us in an effort
to raise funds for rescue animals' lives and make a tax deductible donation to
help us assure that every life that R.E.D. is called upon to help, may indeed be
given a loving place with dignity and grace.
Please, call Tiami at 360-779-5775 or email email@example.com
if you want to help and want to hear about what this would do for the
exceptional animals we all love and the animals that so desperately need this to
have a chance at life. If you can help this effort in anyway please make
contact. Are you a relator or a person with skills in this area? An attorney
that could help with this process? A person that could help finance or invest in
this life saving project? Want to make a small or large donation?
Please, donate on line at our website www.rescueeverydog.org and let us know
if this is for the R.E.D. House of Healing or mail a check to RED PO Box 1741
Kingston WA 98346. Please, share this link with others so we can make this dream
come true for those that need that second chance at a loving life.

PLEA FOR HELP FOR A PUPPY
Tuesday November 18th 2014
UPDATE: 11-2014 These costs were not covered by donors-sponsors and have depleted R.E.D.'s emergency medical funds as they were not optional and had to be covered. This has closed R.E.D. major medical option for 2014 and 2015 when combined with other animals whose costs exceeded the funds raised in their behalf. Please donate to make "A second chance at life" happen for animals in need.
UPDATE: 9-2014 Victor is still trying to recover from the horrific damage caused by this hanous act of violence. He is having his head / sinus scoped on September 24th, 2014. The costs for this are 500.00 and he is still on antibiotics. Please help and make a donation for Victor.
ORIGINAL POST STORY: I am sending out a plea to save a sweet puppy that somehow has defied all odds and is still alive after one of the cruelest acts we have seen in rescue. Someone truly evil really wanted this puppy dead. They shot him at least three times execution style through the top of his head twice and then in the back and then left him to die. If you look at the angles of entry, this human monster was looking down into this sweet puppy's face when they pulled the trigger. The first 2 bullets entered by his eyes forehead and ripped though his head -sinus area going though the roof of his mouth then existing out thorough the chin and it ended up in his left leg. One bullet is still there in the leg and needs to come out. It is thought to be a 22 caliber. They then pulled that trigger a third time firing into this young life. That bullet went through his back and blew out through in his chest. He also has bullet hole in the right leg which is fractured. Needless to say we can hardly believe he survived and is awake. However, he has serious injuries but with some amazing odds and all of us good people on his side are survivable with vet care and supportive RED recovery care.
I posted a lot of pictures and x-rays if you look scroll through the pictures.
There are times that you feel so sick about how low people can go. You wonder how can I be of the same species? I call upon all of you to shine bright and erase the deeds of the dark hearted monster that inflicted these horrific injuries on a gentle puppy. This puppy, though in pain, has offered no hatred towards people. He still looks up with trust and kindness. RED volunteer Mike stopped to see this puppy and he says" He gently wagged his tail and just wanted to be petted. This boy is so handsome pictures do not show how cute he is."
A personal note to the monster who did this may there be "special" place in hell for you.
Please, help us help this young life and make a donation for his care. Let the goodness of what humanity should be shine brighter than the darkness of cruelty. We estimate cost on this rescue with vet care to be at least 1500.00 to 2000.00. We are unsure of the all the costs due to unknown nature of gunshot recoveries and the broken leg and his sinus area which has sustained serious damage from the bullets. Time will tell us more on this dogs repair and recovery costs and we will be updating as we go.
Special thanks to the Jenny of the Humane Society of Jefferson for partnering in rescue with RED to save this young life and for calling when you saw a gentle young life that deserves another chance. Thank you, to our heroes, the Vet Techs and Vets of Hadlock Vet Clinic, for jumping in to help save this dog.
Please, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or face book users PM us on our face book page if you have questions or want to adopt after he has recovered. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rescue-Every-Dog/79792379081

UPDATE: REWARD OFFERED There is a 700.00 reward offered by Humane Society of Jefferson County in this case for the information leading to the conviction of the person that shot Victor. Victor is in RED foster care and recovering.
HERE ARE SOME ARTICLES AND A KOMO TV NEWS STORY ON VICTOR
RED ALERT EMERGENCY MEDICAL: UPDATE: Sadie has been treated and has been adopted. Her medical costs were never completely covered by donations so our options to take in serous and time critical medical emergencies is now closed unless funds to replace our 2015 and remain 2014 budget are raised by caring donors. Most of these cases require a on the phone instant evaluation of the medical facts and chances of a good life ahead should we intervene. We have to be able to just say, "Yes, we can help." in response to these please for life and to initiate emergency medical care that others were unable to pay, in turn leave the animal to be euthanized and ending a innocent life that could have had another chance. The need for this help has risen in this economic place we have found ourselves. Families often must make the choice between housing and food or their pet. Others just don't care enough to pay leaving vet staff to watch a curable animal die for the costs no one will cover. Vet clinics can not cover every one of these of their clinic would be no more. We are a caring people must answer these calls with "Yes we hear you and feel your pain and indeed help is here." Please, join us by making a donation at RED PO BOX 1741 Kingston WA 98346 or go to www.rescueeverydog.org and make an online donation on our website. Our ownerless companion animal medical funds urgently need to be replenished, please, join the fight for life.
ORIGINAL POST PLEASE SHARE AND SAVE SADIE'S LIFE! Gentle Sadie says, "I feel so bad and so very sick. Please help me". Sadie is heading to emergency surgery for an intestinal blockage that will take her life should it not be corrected ASAP. She is a sweet gentle Golden Retriever who deserves to live and have a chance to play and be happy again. Please, join RED in saving this wonderful dog. RED stepped in to save her at the 11th hour. Please, join us by making a donation at RED PO BOX 1741 Kingston WA 98346 or go to www.rescueeverydog.org and make an online donation on our website. We need to raise a minimum of $2500.00 to $3000.00 to save this dog and cover her surgery - care costs. We just got an update and it appears to be on the higher end of these cost due to the length of time it took to get Sadie help prior top her arrival at RED. If you make a donation please let us know so we know what costs have been covered. HELP US SAVE THIS WORTHY DOG. Sadie will also need an adoptive home and a foster home.

MAKING VIOLET ABLE TO RUN!
Tuesday September 23rd 2014
Violet is a wonderful little Papillion & Pomeranian mix who came from a remote shelter that could not help her. Things looked bleak her when calls for help were failing, and the shelter staff called for help to RED after several other rescues left her behind. She came to RED pregnant and with grade 3 patella's (bad knees) on both sides. She could barely walk when she was pregnant but she was a trooper and came through the pregnancy with grace and dignity. Violet is incredibly kind and adorable and even though she has never known a day that she can walk normally, she is undaunted and her good-will towards all is clear to see and enjoy. Her knees have improved greatly with exercise and care but the older she gets, it will be increasingly hard for her to get around. R.E.D. has been given an estimate of $2500 to surgically correct her knees and give her a normal life. Please, help us in raising the funds for sweet Violet...Who can say no when you look in this little girl's sweet and adoring eyes?
Violet has 450.00 towards her surgery ;o( Let's turn that frown to a smile and make a donation to help this worthy girl.

TINY PRINCESS AND GRACIE
Sunday June 15th 2014
These tiny sisters arrived at R.E.D. in fragile condition. They are exceptionally small and are the size of 3 month old at about 16 pounds Gracie 18 pounds Nigerian Dwarfs instead of the full 30 to 35 pounds size they should be. Their kind owner was struggling to get them happy and healthy so they asked for help for these tiny precious goats.

The new pictures show some of the light of health beginning to shine in their eyes in comparison to the day they arrived. Please join us in helping these girls and make a donation! Want to come meet these sweet girls, as soon as they are cleared medically, let us know.

Enjoy the show. Thank you, Shayla P for setting this updatable show up for RED.
5-23-14 For my birthday, which is tomorrow, I wished for him to have another sheep in his life. This birthday wish for happiness for Shaun and for a safe life for a special sheep in Shamus's honor was granted. Here are arrival pictures of the little girl that has come to RED. She is still not able to be with him all the time but he is very gentle with her. Her name is Sofia and she is a Heritage breed Finn Sheep. She is exceptionally tiny for her age so needed extra care which is what we are good at here. We know she still has risks ahead but we are hoping all will go well for her as she grows. I want to thank everyone that choose life as the option for this tiny baby. Shaun seems more peaceful now that he has her to run about with. tlc
Please sponsor a RED animal like Sofia.
UPDATE 5-26-14 Sofia has a great visit with RED friends Jeremy and Meghan. This little one is doing well and having fun playing in the sun with the other RED crew.

RED ALERT RESCUE:
UPDATE 5-2014 Cary Anne aka Caramel is posted for adoption. Added some pictures of her on vacation with her foster family.
UPDATE: 5-2014 Cary Ann aka Caramel has moved a new phase 2 foster home . He splint is off and she is enjoying her time in foster care. We added some new pictures of her with her foster dad and splint free.
UPDATE 4-2-14 Caramel is doing well. We call her Carrie now. She had her surgery at Ridge top and is still in a splint also in addition to the plate because she is so active. She has been a sweet girl. She has also been a hard foster as she really wants to play and be a Aussie. That time will be here soon but she still has another months of healing to do. Thank you to everyone who donated. We reached 1800.00 which did not cover all the costs but did make it possible to help this girl in the fashion that was in her best interest.
2-20-14: STATUS URGENT: SHARE IF YOU CARE:
Caramel is a beautiful girl who has found her short life to be less than it should have been. He owners had good intentions but sometimes life best intentions do not become reality. She has come to rescue as her people found they could not care for her in many ways. She has been hit by a car and has a very broken leg. She sat for 2 days with this injury as the owners were unable to find any affordable help to have her get treatment or even pain meds. It was not due to a lack of trying but the doors to help just did not seem to open for them. However, they did the right thing and picked up the phone again and this time they got a hold of us, RED Rescue Every Dog. R.E.D. sprung into action and had this girl at the vets within hours. She is now comfortable and medicated and her leg has been x-rayed and splinted. We need your help so little Caramel can have a normal and happy life. It is a serious break and needs to plate to heal properly and in a timely manner. The rescue discounted priced vet and surgery costs on this dog are 2000.00 to 2400.00. We need your help to raise these funds so this Aussie puppy can recover. Please join us in this effort to put this young bright dog back on the path to well and happy. We have booked her plating surgery in good faith that we will have the sponsor support we need to cover these costs. Her surgery is booked for Friday the 28th. SHARE IF YOU CARE OR DONATE !

SHAUN AND SHAMUS THE LAMBS
Thursday May 29th 2014
RED ALERT RESCUED FACES: BABY SHAUN AND SHAMUS:
4-2014 On some days rescues are not what you expected but are oh so much cuter than one could have imagine before the day began. Meet Shaun. He is a 2 to 3 week old baby sheep. He has some issues with his front legs that he needs time and help to over come. He is as sweet as they come. He came to RED for Physical therapy and to enjoy many bottles while he grows up. Thank you to everyone involved in this babies world for choosing life for him.
Thank you, to Linda of the Equine Shoppe, Poulsbo WA for the help with his great little coat.
We need sponsors for Shaun the sheep's milk replacer and care.
Shaun had a vet visit today with Dr. Jan. he looks great and is getting stronger everyday with his physical therapy and lots of fun within the RED farm life. He has had some new diet and vitamin supplements added slowly.
UPDATE: 4-15-14 Baby Shamus aka Shabam has come to RED for physical therapy and has join little Shaun is the recovery process. Little Shamus is an orphan and he was injured during the birthing process in an effort to save his life when things went wrong. The people who had him wish him to have a chance at a good life and knew Shaun needed a friend so Shamus has come to RED. We were happy to help this gentle soul.
UPDATE: 5-17-14 A love was lost.
A day of loss of someone very special to us here. Missing my baby boy. tlc
So the sun rose today and a precious little life did not awaken with the rest of the world. My sweet baby lamb, Shamus, slipped quietly away during the night without warning. I found him this morning sleeping but it was a forever sleep. The dawn brought no sweet calls to me, to the only momma he has known. I carried his fresh warm bottle in my hands but there was no happy Shamus to greet me. His brother Shaun stood vigil over his quiet little self when I arrived. Tiny Shamus was tucked into bed last night after his bottle and his cuddle time with me. He nodded off to sleep like he always does while I stroked his little head. I told him I loved him hugged both boys and returned to the house at 10:00. Everything was routine and looked so well. I looked back one last time and thought how lucky we were to have these special boys. I felt blessed they were with RED and our farm. His day had been as normal as always with love and fun and food. Not a sign anything was a miss. His even tried to steal food from big brother Shaun at bed time and chatted his sheep talk to me. Though he has had us worried in the past, but last night him being gone from our lives today was not even in my mind nor was it in his. He left us as quietly and sweetly as he lived. He simply did not wake up from his sleep. He was just as I had left him all cuddled up and cozy. I find that a blessing he was happy and had good times until his final moment and even then I think leaving was was masked in sleep. He has always struggled physically and was a quiet baby in contrast to brother, Shaun, who has been a power house of happy and joy. Shamus has always slept more but we and his vets truly thought we had overcome the big issues before him. It appears his heart just stopped while he slept. He looked like he was still sleeping on his little bed when I found him. Shaun is devastated and so am I. Watching Shaun look for him is so sad on top of the sad. I am lost in his loss but would not give up one moment with him to avoid the pain and will remember the love we shared in this little ones time here. I perhaps unwisely fell completely in love with him but how could one not love him completely. I have looked at everything we did for him and can find nothing we could have done more for him. He is greatly missed and will forever be my little lamb.
My little lamb you blessed us with "Your sweet self." May peace surround you and may heaven give you the green pastures, joyous lamb binkies, the soft blankets and the bottles you loved. May the angels understand they have a special soul among them. I miss you little one and I will try not to wish for what could not be. I love you my little Lamb. TLC
Special thanks to Dr. Jan for taking time to help the sheep boys with needed medical support.

RED ALERT UPDATE: Mocha had his surgery and has recovered. He is now living a pain free life with his new adoptive home. I want to thank Dog Sot in Seattle WA for helping get the word out about this dogs painful condition and need for help. Thank You, Megan and Jeremy for fostering and case working this dogs path to a new happy life via RED. I added some new pictures of Mocha.
RED ALERT URGENT: SPONSORS AND RED FOSTER NEEDED NOW! SHARE IF YOU CARE AND JOIN IN THE FIGHT FOR LIFE: FOSTER AND SPONSORS NEEDED: His name is Mocha. He is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy. He is young, sweet, and a big boy (probably 55-60 lbs, already). When this purebred Chesapeake puppy turned out to come with large vet bills due to a medical issue the desire to have him seemed to vanish for his owner. He was then left behind like a broken toy at a public animal shelter that cannot provide the recovery care needed to help save him. So what is wrong with young Mocha? Since his eyes opened and he viewed the world through his young eyes he has never not known pain. Mocha has severe Entropic eyes. His eyes have just been seen by vet clinics (including a board certified DVM ophthalmologist) and are considered - Severe and Urgent. This is a fixable condition. Imagine every blink and every moment having your eye lashes and eye lids rubbing on your eyes. Imagine never having one moment in time that your eyes were not burning on fire. Imagine a young puppy learning about life feeling pain with every move. Entropic eye dogs develop behaviors that come from constant pain and avoidance so it is not only an eye issue but one that changes who the dog will be. Mocha is now 6 months old and has a bright future if help is provided. His owner knew about the issue and did nothing to help him. They could have called a rescue but did not. So after much damage has been done he leaves him for others to help at a much higher cost. RED is thankful to be able to change fate with your help for this young life. He will go blind if this is not repaired immediately. Cornea ulcer damage is confirmed as happening and exiting not to mention the constant pain so this surgery is considered an emergency. Please, help us help save Mochas eyes and Life and give him a pain free world. Estimates from vets on this surgery have been in a range from 2500.00 to 1500.00. This does not include the RED staff and volunteer care and operation costs. He also will need to be neutered at the same time so that will be additional costs. We need Sponsors to get this rolling. Please, join us in the fight to help and save this young, worthy life. Mocha deserves to see the world and to live a life pain free.
Current donation to save Mocha are at 0.00
Please, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or face book users PM us on our face book page if you have questions or want to foster. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rescue-Every-Dog/79792379081 This is a medical foster so he needs supervision and is a puppy so training and fun will be part of the foster fun.
Please, donation on line at www.rescueeverydog.org on the home page or mail a donation to RED PO Box 1741 Kingston Washington 98346

RED ALERT EMERGENCY: HELP SAVE MONTY-WASHINGTON STATE: Monty was a happy playful lab - pointer mix. Today the joy is gone and it may be his last day. He is in horrible pain and so very sick. He is only a year old and will not see another sunrise if surgery does not happen. He has an intestinal blockage that has been going on for several days. It is thought to be a Barbie Doll head. Monty is in critical condition and is awaiting the OK for surgery after his owners sign him over to rescue. They just got Monty a week ago and had not idea life saving surgery could cost so much. This surgery was quoted at 1500.00 to 2000.00 and they do not have that kind of money to save him. We need donations immediately to cover these costs and Monty can come to rescue and live.

LILY NEEDS HER ADOPTIVE HEROS
Thursday February 20th 2014
Lily came to RED from a remote shelter. She is a smart sassy sweet girl. She is an amazingly pretty cute girl that loves to be with you. She is seeking a home that will love her for all of her days. She sadly had been un-spayed and allowed to have puppies. She is only for but had developed very early stage mammary tumors. They were found by RED staff during our monthly breast exams on the RED crew. We check all dogs regularly as this is very common as it is in in people. The mammary tumors were very small and were surgically removed immediately. We are seeking a home for her that understands they may still be more tumors that will appear and they will need to be removed if that happens. There is also a good chance there will be no more. Please email us if you would like more information on Little Lily.
We also need sponsors to cover the cost of the surgery RED took these funds out of our emergency find and they must be replaced before other dogs in need can be helped. Please honor the fight to give all temperament worthy dogs a chance at a good and happy life and sponsor Lily. Make a donation on our site and then email us if you would like to sponsor this little one.
LILY'S SPONSORS: Your name here Please help!

A Special Life
For RED the value of a life is not limited to one species or one issue. We honor and help exceptional animals when they are in need. Today was a day of goodbye for one such life. Today a tiny little life who had a big personality and lived life with joy joined the angels. She knew no self pity. She knew she was wonderful and indeed she was. Sweet Daisy came to RED at 4 weeks old unknown injuries. We quickly found she had a broken back but was undaunted by this. She was given care and sanctuary and love and in return she made friends with everyone that met her. Sweet Daisy we will miss your presence and we are happy you were a part of our lives. Thank you Melanie and Shayla for helping care for this special needs bunny and for loving her as much as I did. I wrapped her in a blanket and gave her back to the earth under the big cedar trees and placed Daisies on her grave. We were honored to have given you the chance to live. Good bye sweet angel girl may God give you legs that run like the wind in heaven.
By Melanie Forthum
A little survivor a baby cloud You made us proud...
With innocence and glory you are a bed time story
Every day a milestone in constant sway
Coin toss, tails? heads up never fails and it is your time to pass without a warning
Open the door forevermore... Find that sign and leave the pain behind
Bound away, out of sight and bask in heavens light

Where Do the Class Pets Go?
Thursday October 28th 2010
Turtle Needs Your Help
A Special Creature Needs New Housing
When school is out one question some may ask is where do the class pets go? Well some of them come to R.E.D. for the summer and weekends for foster care and vacation support care. One such creature. She is a little Three Toed Box Turtle. She is a adorable creature with an amazing, inquisitive personality. These turtles may easily live 30 to 50 years if properly cared for so they are huge commitment. She arrived into the world of Outreach Education after she was found very ill and injured by dogs. She still carries the small holes in her shell from being bitten. She has served as an educational animal at an Elementary school for some time. Her gift is teaching children about responsibility and awareness of what happens to many pets that become unwanted. She has given children a chance to learn, love and care for her.
This little one is now in R.E.D.\'s care along with our other educational outreach members. Upon her arrival we noticed that though well intended her current housing is not as it should be. Tiami and Shayla made a donation to help and have made some big changes like humidity, lighting, heat and bedding and expanded diet. However, the tank size was a big issue. We needed to provide her with a new improved habitat. We upgraded her world and care and make it easier for her to stay well and happy. This in turn will help many, many children learn from her and enjoy meeting her. Having children understand animals needs and responsibility is critical to our R.E.D. mission and the future of our brethren creatures. We need sponsors for her care and feed. She costs about 5.00 a week to feed and provide supplies like lighting, bedding, vitamins for her. If you would like to help a tiny animal educator, please, email firstname.lastname@example.org . If anyone is interested in a group session with the R.E.D. Rescue Education Outreach Team of small animals let me know.
Sponsors for this Life supporting and educational effort are an ongoing need.
Thank you, Beverly G. and Dr. Davies for sponsoring this companion animal!
This little turtle is happy and content at R.E.D. Due to the huge school budget cuts at the school she was at she is not longer able to stay at the school for the 2011/2012 school year. RED is still taking her on educational outreaches when possible.
Gone Without a Trace
Sunday October 10th 2010
Gone Without a Trace
Little Rosa woke up expecting nothing more than a normal day of pain and misery. Sitting in a small dirty cage she found herself being picked up and stuffed in a even smaller cage. More rabbits were put next to her and then they were put in a car. More cages full of rabbits were put next to her and on top of her. Then before she knew it she was being taken inside a very large building then set on a table. To her dismay more rabbits in pain were set right next to her. After a long time she was then picked up a few times handed around then put in a bigger cage away from all she knew. After what seemed like a whole day she was then set in another car this one much warmer and comfy. She was then taken to her new home. She was the put in the biggest cage she had ever seen in a nice room full of rabbits. in a few minutes she had fallen asleep. Soon she felt worse than ever and she soon had been packed full of water was being given medicine day and night. then one night she began to breath slower and slower she soon was asleep and then she was lost to the skies above forever.
We will always miss you Rosa.
By, Jr R.E.D. Volunteer Shayla P.
A rabbit with no name. A life and a soul for anyone one to take for $5.00 and no questions asked. They just needed you gone so they can clear a cage for the next round of rabbits born. That is how we first saw her. She was taken into the RED Rabbit Adoption program with the hope she would get a new chance at life. Sadly, this little bunny was extremely ill and arrived in our care with coccidia. This illness if not treated in time is deadly to rabbits. She was already to sick when she got here but RED tried everything to save her. We named her Rosa and loved her. She was only with us a few days before as we held her gentley as the light within her faded.
This is something that should never have happened. Rabbitries that sell rabbits to others and to children should test their rabbits and provide clean conditions. We have established an effort in Rosa's memory. The RED Rosa Test for Life Program. We are offering fecal testing to 4H children for their rabbits. May you rest in the arms of the angels little Rosa. You will not be gone with out a trace as we shall make your life and loss bring education and help to others. Please make a donation as $1.00 can test a rabbit and save lives and prevent children and rabbits from suffering.
