Lifting for Homeless Pets

by Chris on October 7, 2012

My friends I’m writing today to discuss an issue that is very near to my heart. Those of you out there who know me personally know that “animal person” doesn’t really begin to cut it. There’s never been a period of time in my life that I didn’t have a dog; in fact at one point I had 8. All of them rescued from abandonment. Among my pet family are a mother and her puppies (no longer puppies) who were left in the cold after the owner moved and didn’t bother to bring her along.

Diamond was skin and bones when we took her in. Now...she could probably use some sprints intervals.

Over the years my family has become more involved in animal rescue. At any given point we are caring for a number of feral animals and seeking to find them homes. My mother in particular has devoted more time and energy to countless homeless pets than anyone I know. Frankly, I don’t know how she does it.

As you might be getting by now rescuing animals and finding them good homes is an important part of my life. If I had the resources I would take in every stray, feral or abandoned animal I came across.

My regular readers also know that as a strength coach I have a particular affinity for powerlifting. It’s a great sport filled with amazing people. Well, on October 19th I will be competing at the 100% Raw World Championships in Las Vegas. And I’ll be lifting to raise awareness about animal rescue and the fight for no more homeless pets.

But we need your help.

Competing on the world stage is a great way for me to reach lots of people and help out this cause. But I need support to do it. Below you will see a donate button. Every bit counts and will go towards supporting the fight against homeless and abandoned pets. I will be donating the net proceeds from this to local rescue groups. As you can imagine, there are many expenses associated with caring for these animals. Often, abandoned animals are in desperate need of veterinary care as well as shelter and food.

I want you all to know how much I appreciate you visiting this blog and taking the time to read what I write. Without you this site would have crashed and burned a long time ago. Thank you for your support and please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.
