Dear Sanctuary Friends & Supporters,
All of us at Caring For Creatures feel blessed to present to you A LIFE WELL LIVED, our final 30th Anniversary Matching Gift Challenge. Now through December 31, 2019 your donation – in any amount – will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $20,000. Our Match Challenge donors have been a part of the CFC family for many years. They prefer to remain anonymous but share their personal message to you here:
“Our inspiration for this donation is twofold, based on both    human and animal influences. This year, Mom suffered a traumatic brain injury which required surgery to save her life. This woman who had always been so tough and independent, suddenly had become completely incapacitated in a split second! A life-long do-it-yourselfer, this was a true challenge to her  psyche well beyond the physical insult of the injury. Watching her come back from the brink of death this year with grace and determination has been incredibly inspiring. We are learning what IS and what IS NOT important, that life can change in the blink of an eye, and that as humans we have the ability to choose how we respond to those curveballs that inevitably come our way.
Also this year, we lost our sweetheart old hound, Tequila, we’d adopted from CFC just 2 years ago. Though a shy guy at first, he quickly blossomed and soon it was hard to imagine our home without him. We had just 2 years with the goofy old boy, but   giving him the chance to be a true pet in his retirement years and being fortunate enough to watch his transformation, reminds us to take every day as it comes and to stop and smell the roses along the way, just as he did!”
We invite you to honor a friend or family member (animal or human) who inspired you through their love and support. Or,  perhaps there is someone who was your rock as you made your way through a particularly challenging time. Please honor them with a gift to our Life Well Lived $20,000 Matching Gift Challenge which continues through December 31, 2019.
