Our Inspiration

“For six fulfilling years, I was privileged to serve on the board and leadership team of Cody’s Friends Rescue, an all-breed dog rescue. The summer of 2017, however, brought with it an event that would forever change my perspective on animal rescue. As I ventured into a local shelter intending to rescue a dog for CFR, a 7-week-old kitten, attacked and abandoned, was tossed onto the shelter floor. Unable to ignore his plight, I left that day not only with the dog for CFR but with this little survivor too.

This young feline, named Max, was immediately taken to the vet, where his harrowing story touched the hearts of a caring community of supporters who generously donated and sent their prayers. After a week-long stay in the hospital, multiple surgeries including the amputation of his tail and ear, and the realization that he would be blind in one eye, Max finally found his forever home with me. Today, he’s a cherished, pampered, and healthy member of our family.

The experience of rescuing Max instilled in me a newfound zeal and a deep-seated desire to broaden my impact beyond canine rescue.

Following a year of thoughtful contemplation, prayer, and countless conversations with my family, close friends, and rescue partners, I gathered the courage to step up and take action. In 2018, I proudly founded “A Voice for All Paws,” a rescue organization dedicated to giving all paws a chance.”
