As a member of the board of directors for All Life Animal Rescue, I run in the DuPage Human Race because I believe that even a small organization can make a difference.

I run because I think homeless pets deserve a chance, and that all pets deserve a loving home. I run because there are far too many pet owners slipping through the cracks, who can keep their pets with them through owner retention programs, if only they receive help.

 

I run because there are cats living in the community that, despite not being candidates for adoption, still need to be spayed or neutered and receive medical attention.

All Life Animal Rescue can provide all of these things and much more. Providing adoption and rescue services, help with community cats and pet retention programs, the organization is serving both animals and humans in the community alike.

If you believe in helping animals and their humans in the community, these should be the reasons you run, too.
