Joa's Arc

I am very excited to say that I've been invited to be part of a new project and mission. In no way was this my idea, but I am so excited to be a part of it and it is absolutely something near and dear to my heart - fund raising for special needs animals!

As some of you might remember, I posted a little blurb about my friend Juicy's foster kitty, Joa, about a year ago. A nice person came into Juicy's pet boutique and mentioned seeing a kitten living outside who couldn't use her back legs. Thankfully, through FFRV who Juicy was still a part of, she was able to take Joa in. Juicy loved her, spoiled her and took that little brat everywhere - including the pet boutique where Joa was able to touch many lives. Joa is the inspiration for this new group - Joa's Arc.

Working as an auxiliary group of Save The Animals Foundation, Inc., Joa's Arc wishes to aid shelters in the Southern New Jersey area with the financial care of special needs animals they would not normally be able to help or adopt out such as animals with severe medical conditions that need extensive specialty care from traumatic fractures, congenital issues, etc. Joa’s Arc realizes this is an area where we will be able to help others and help these extraordinary animals in the process to not only live a more comfortable life, but a more loved life as well as a potentially adopted pet.

Please check out the blog we have going now for the group and support us however you can: donations, volunteering or kind words are all welcomed :)
