Welcome to My Personal Page
This year it’s more critical than ever that we come together to support the animals. This year, the challenge is even greater, as we will have to do it virtually.
Because of your support, The Metal Maidens were the Top Fundraising Team in 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2019. I have been the Top Individual Fundraiser for 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. None of this is possible without you.
I was prepared to do this last year but, Greenhill Humane Society got wind of my intentions and as part of our prize package for taking both honors in 2019, was 10 Free Registrations for 2020! I will be retiring The Metal Maidens after the 2020 event. While I have done a lot in animal rescue, there are still areas that I want to learn and so while I am giving up participation in this event, I will never give up on animals or their wellbeing! This was not an easy decision and I have questioned myself over and over regarding it. I am hoping to have the BIGGEST and BEST team yet! We want to go out on TOP and with a BANG! I have met the most wonderful people through this event and forged life long friendships. Participating in this event has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. I will miss it and I will miss you!
2019 was our BEST year yet, with your help, we raised $11,000! I hope that you will consider supporting our efforts one more time. We are hoping to be the Champions for the animals again this year. We cannot do this without your kindness and generosity. Please consider a 100% Tax Deductible donation that will provide shelter, nutrition, veterinary care, safety and a chance to find their safe, loving and 4-ever home.
Animals are my passion. I will be their voice for as long as I have one.
As our community works together to overcome this challenging time, animals continue to enter Greenhill and shelters across the country. They’re relying on us and your participation will help give each one a second chance. Please help me to help them.
To Love a Rescuer
To love a rescuer you must love all of her. You must love the scars covering her body from panicked and hurt animals she was trying to help. You must love her fractured heart, that has been broken so many times she no longer even takes the time to mend the pieces.
To love a rescuer you must embrace her grit and determination, and know that although she fights a war she can never win, she can and does win a few battles. You must love the tears she will shed over those she lost. You must give her comfort that she refuses to accept, as she blames herself for things she could have never foreseen.
To love a rescuer you must acknowledge the rage she feels towards the world at times, and know that anger is driven by a love of life too few have. You must give her space and room to cry and mourn for the losses that others have caused out of carelessness or cruelty.
To love a rescuer you must understand her passion to heal and save is a calling, not a choice. You must accept that to save animals is part of her soul and without that she could never be happy.
To love a rescuer you must be patient. You must accept her work comes first. She will forgo sleep, forgo food, forgo her life for animals in need. She will work tirelessly until her body and mind fail her completely and she cannot go on.
To love a rescuer you must be strong. You must not be threatened by her focus and love of animals. You must accept that the things you love about her, the strength and convictions and loyalty are also what drives her sense of duty to animals in need; you cannot have one without the other.
To love a rescuer you must never ask her to choose, because she will, and it will not be you...
