Do you know what Chain of Hope is? If the answer is no, it’s time to remedy that.
Chain of Hope (CoH) is like a lot of local Kansas City area rescue organizations in that it’s run by some of the most compassionate people you’ll ever meet. People with huge hearts. But they’re also among the bravest and most vigilant animal advocates on the planet.
CoH volunteers perform outreach in some of the poorest areas of the city.
Places where residents might have a pet, but not have the financial means to feed it good, healthy food. Or to provide a dog house to keep their pet out of the rain and wind. Or warm hay to make that dog house a cozier place. They find pets who have been abandoned. Neglected. Chained up. Or forgotten.
And what they do is AMAZING. The transformations they can create are among the most wonderful things imaginable, helping dogs who are sick, neglected, or injured grow strong and healthy again, in loving homes.
And we’re trying to buy them 10,000 pounds of food.
What would five tons of food do for them? It would mean that ALL of the dogs at their shelter get the healthiest food. It would mean that all of those people that they help during their outreach can give THEIR pets healthy and nutritious food. And it would mean that Chain of Hope doesn’t need to worry about food for about three months. That means they can devote more of their efforts to outreach. It means they can spend more on medical help for injured or sick pets.
It means they can do MORE good!
So when you come into the Barkery and we ask you for a dollar for Chain of Hope…..help us out?
