We are setting up a retail outlet space for marketing some of the fabulous gifts, collectibles, and antiques that people donate to us. These items deserve to be displayed in a setting that gets enough visitors so that we can maximize the proceeds and find good homes for these items, all of which were given with love, by people who were downsizing, or changing lifestyles, or finding homes for a loved one’s colections.

To find our display, as of October 1 and all through the holidays and New Year, go in the front door, make a left past the counter, and walk down the left aisle for approximately 150 – 200 feet. Then make a left. You will find us along the side wall.

Great items. Great prices. Great cause. We get all proceeds after expenses so SHOP WITHOUT GUILT.

After a huge amount of work and prayers, our 2014 WAEB Radiothon – our biggest fundraiser of the year – closed its total at a record-setting $132,085. That is wonderful news and an impressive total. It goes without saying that we really needed those funds, since we went into the Radiothon with an operating deficit of over $250,000. That deficit was and is due to the huge number of animals we are called upon to help, and the escalating costs of veterinary services and medicines, special medical diet food, kennel supplies, utilities, etc.

What always is so impressive and touching about the Radiothon is the outpouring of love and kindness from so many people. Donors send pledges with the kindest notes; people come to the weekend events with pictures of their pets and warm words of encouragement. Volunteers schedule their vacations around the Radiothon, and some (many) use precious vacation days so they can help out all during Radiothon week.

Several businesses, not the least of which is the WAEB/ClearChannel team, donate services and items for prizes so that 100% of the funds we raise go directly to animal rescue and care.

Thank you. You have made light shine in the darkness; made life an option over death; made hope possible; and banished despair. may you and those you care about be blessed with the knowledge that your kindness and support have made a huge difference in this world, and in the lives of hundreds of animals who call Animals In Distress their sanctuary and their home.
