Giving animals a chance Part 2 – Faith over Fear with Ruth Thompson S4 EPS 15

  1. Giving animals a chance Part 2 - Faith over Fear with Ruth Thompson S4 EPS 15 Host Kim Lengling 32:31

Grab your coffee, friends.

This week is Part 2 of my chat with Ruth, founder and wearer of many hats of The ANNA Shelter, a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to helping neglected, abused, and needy animals find their forever homes.

Part 2, as Part 1 did, finds us talking about animals but also life and how circumstances have shaped who we are as a people and why we do what we do in life.

Of course, we are chatting about the animals, the emotional toll this work can take, and how Ruth and her amazing Team navigate each day saving animals.

Part of their mission statement is “Giving each animal a chance – saving one animal at a time.”

Saving animals is Ruth’s heart and her passion.

She founded The ANNA Shelter twenty years ago while renting space to house animals through veterinary offices and a flower shop.

The ANNA Shelter has six buildings, including a barn for larger animals in need and a thrift store to help raise funds to keep the shelter going.

I hope you enjoyed these past two weeks as much as I did chatting with Ruth about her mission.
