Don’t Kill Time… It’s Far Too Precious

January 29th, 2016|

The saying, “I’m just killing time” has been bothering me lately… I am guilty of saying it, thinking it, or actually committing the crime just as much as anybody else. It is a horrible thing though, really. It is my birthday today. It forces me to look back on how far I have come as [...]

Are Difficult Adoption Processes Helping?

January 22nd, 2016|

I was scrolling through Facebook the other day and found and interesting article. It spoke of a woman who was denied an adoption. Nothing too earth shattering, until I found out who she was. Liz Baker, the current executive director for Her resume is polished with some of the most esteemed animal organizations and [...]

Finding Nemo

January 17th, 2016|

Nemo was just a kitten whose condition reflected neglect and malnutrition when I first saw her. I met Nemo in Antonito, Colorado, which is home to a population of stray cats and dogs, and is also the reason I went to volunteer at their community spay and neuter clinic. When I brought her home to Demi’s [...]

Is the Millennial Generation Really Doomed?

January 17th, 2016|

It is very common that I hear or see, specifically on social media, how doomed the Millennial generation is. “These young people have their heads in their phones, are lazy, and most of all stupid.” I see this all of the time and for a while, I agreed. I was embarrassed by these people, I [...]

What Makes Us Different

January 17th, 2016|

I recently was asked, “What makes your organization different from other rescue groups and shelters? Why should someone choose to donate to you?”   After being asked that question, I realized that a lot of supporters might be asking the same thing… Especially new supporters that may not truly know our organization yet. I thought [...]

Why We Give Denied Applicants a Second Chance

December 29th, 2015|

I want to begin by saying that we do, in fact, screen our adopters and make sure that they are a perfect fit for the cat or dog that they plan on adopting. Some things that adopters get denied for, are things that they really can’t change our opinion on, and they cannot get an [...]

They Tell You That You Can do Anything Growing up, but Does Anyone Really Mean it

December 29th, 2015|

I founded Demi’s Animal Rescue at the age of 14. The response I got from the public was extremely mixed. I got a lot of, “Wow, you’re so young and doing amazing things!” I also got a lot of people that thought I wasn’t experienced or smart enough to handle the issue of pet homelessness. [...]

I am Stuck in Rush Hour and I am Loving the View…

December 29th, 2015|

The past two days have been complete madness. Living in Denver, Colorado has to be one of the most enjoyable and beautiful things, until you have to continue your rescue work in a snowstorm. Yesterday I woke up to chaos of icy roads and flipped over cars, in addition to the news that I had [...]

How it All Began

December 29th, 2015|

It is common that people ask me, “How did you start rescuing animals at such a young age?” There are collections of stories leading up to the creation of Demi’s Animal Rescue. My work to save animals began in elementary school. A group of friends and I started a neighborhood dog walking business. We saved [...]
