Review for Looking Glass Animal Rescue, Ridgefield, CT, USA
I have never felt more passionate about a non-profit organization, and what she has done in a little over a year - save the lives of 400 little beings that are in the worst scenarios - physically and emotionally - and are the most vulnerable to being euthanized - is nothing short of amazing. You see, the ACC won't even let Jody adopt the cute, healthy ones - those go to the "regular" rescues. Jody's "pack," as she calls them, are the raggedy-taggedy crew of dogs/cats no one else will take. She sees potential in these adorable outcasts; she cleans them up and polishes them off (often through involved/complicated medical treatments, emotionally therapy classes, grooming, foster-love/recovery) so they can be adoptable and treated with the respect and love they have always deserved. I adopted Donut, a senior poodle who was dumped at the ACC with a breast tumour hanging out of her body that Jody saved. LGAR spent thousands of dollars on Donut's surgery and aftercare. My husband and I nursed Donut through her Hospice period (she lived 6 more happier months), and it changed our lives. I donate to this rescue and plan to volunteer in the coming months.
