Beading Divas to the Rescue is honored to be raising funds for The Animal League of Green Valley (TALGV) which is a private, non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill organization serving the greater Green Valley (AZ) area.
Their focus is to find new homes for cats and dogs whose owners are unable to care for them because of illness or other necessary lifestyle changes and for abandoned animals. 720 pets were adopted were adopted in 2012!
The veterinary fees for 2012 was an astonishing $189,489 which includes in-house, spay/neuter clinics, medical outreach, and veterinary medicines.
On any given day the number of pets vary but on May 30, 2013 there were 125 cats at the TALGV shelter, plus 20 in foster care, and 33 dogs at the TALGV shelter, plus 21 in foster care.

(Photo: RUSTY – When it comes to catching a tennis ball, Rusty is an athlete. Just as a soccer player lifts the ball off the ground with his feet, Rusty can do this with a tennis ball. He loves to have a tennis ball thrown for him, bounced high – he is an aerial champ. He is eager to please and learn and loves going for car rides. After play, he loves affection – to be stroked, scratched all over, often offering his tummy. He would do best with someone who loves and understands heelers. He is truly a special dog, smart, loyal and affectionate. Since TALGV is a no-kill shelter, he has been there since 3-20-2011.)
Last month Beading Divas to the Rescue raised $2,600 for the Greyhound Alliance/Sunburst Project. Follow Beading Divas on Facebook.
