WHAT WE DO
Rescue Project is a thriving non-profit organization committed to spreading awareness for animal rescue and support of local animal shelters worldwide. Through cycling, running, and outdoor adventure sports, Rescue Project inspires others to share their active lifestyles and enthusiasm with their furry companions and engages communities to support animal rescue efforts.
In addition to donating at least 50% of the profits from sales of Rescue Project clothing and accessories to rescue organizations around the world, we use social media to help to grow and support a network of animal advocates whose mission is to save more animals through fostering and adoption.
We are also involved in local events such as charity rides, fun runs, shelter adoption days, and local community fundraising events with breweries, wineries, bike/run/triathlon shops and more. To keep up with our happenings, follow our social media pages on facebook and instagram.
What started as an idea in 2013 has been made successful with the support of my wide network of dog-loving athlete friends...and their friends.
I spent a decent number of years racing my bike while also being a full time grad student. During this time, I always remained an active volunteer for rescue. However, when my own two dogs became older and life got busier, it became more challenging to keep foster dogs of my own. Still, I felt the need to continue to help animal rescue in some way.
One day, the light bulb turned on and Rescue Project was formed. We have already grown from "just an idea" to an international outreach program supporting rescue organizations, animal shelters, and foster homes. This is not a solo mission. Rescue Project brings all of us athletes and outdoor enthusiasts together so we can get more dogs into foster and forever homes, ultimately saving more lives.
