Menifee Christian Women's Group Supports RFSC
On Monday, September 8, the Menifee Christian Women’s Group graciously invited Liz White and several RFSC volunteers to attend their monthly luncheon. This was a wonderful opportunity to introduce ourselves and promote the services that RFSC provides to the community.
Liz was also very happy to announce the operation and ownership of our new facility, after purchasing the property previously operated by Sun City K9 Adoptions. Liz told of the many plans for expanding and improving the enclosures and play area for the dogs and cats that will be temporarily housed there until adopted. She plans to have an open house there in the near future.
Liz spoke of the RFSC goals to not only rescue, but find loving homes for hundreds of wonderful animals that otherwise might be euthanized because of over population. RFSC offers solutions for people who can no longer care for their pets. We also offer help for unwanted or abused animals. Whatever the reason or situation RFSC is dedicated to helping all concerned.
Besides our rescue efforts, RFSC is also very active in educating the public about animal care and safety. Our mobile vet clinic has opened many doors in this arena. Thanks to generous donations we receive and the dedication of our vet, Dr. Koepcke, RFSC takes the mobile clinic to the public, and helps people with animals in need, by providing low cost spay, neuter, and health services. We have the capability to alter 30 animals in one day.
|Making things better for animals is RFSC’s continued goal. During her talk, Liz held Angel , an adorable 4 year old Pomeranian, an example of the wonderful dogs we have for adoption. She also introduced 4 of her volunteers and their dogs, all alumni of RFSC: Stacy and her son Cooper with their golden retriever Duke, adopted at 12 years of age and just celebrated his 13th birthday and Ron and Nancy Patterson and their 2 goldens, Tessie, 8 years old and Puna, 17 months old. All 3 dogs are now happy and vital loving members of their families.
Ron spoke about how these dogs can also give back. Tessie adopted in September 2009 is a certified therapy and Reading Education Assistance dog since March 2010.
Tessie loves people and now brightens the lives of many people while visiting assisted living facilities, hospitals, and day care centers for the disabled. Not bad for a once abandoned dog!
It was a wonderful day and great opportunity to meet the people in our community, let them know of the services we offer, and to share RFSC goals and dreams.
Thank you Menifee Christian Women!
We have a great group of volunteers who come to our rescue center on Sundays to help walk dogs.
Thanks to our volunteers, the dogs get lots of love and attention.
Sadie and Lady, 2 Golden Retrievers are pictured here. They came to us afraid of people and did not walk on a leash.
Look at them now !!
Sadie and Lady are mother and daughter who are both hoping to be adopted together.
RFSC's Mobile Vet Clinic
We wanted to share some pictures of a recent Spay/Neuter clinic that
we hosted in Riverside county.
The animals were provided the much needed surgeries at no cost
in order to prevent future litters. RFSC volunteers know
that we cannot adopt our way out of the over population problem.
We are trying to do all that we can in order to be part of the
We pray for a day when all animals have a loving home.
Until then, we would be grateful for
donations to support this much needed program.
Please visit our spay/neuter page for details and to take a look at
our beautiful clinic on wheels!
Thank you to
Clary Photography for taking the pictures
