The Great Animal Rescue Chase
In the space of time it takes a raindrop to roll down your cheek, a life changing decision is made. You either turn sorrowfully away from an animal in distress or summon the courage to run forward and help. For all you runners out there, welcome home.
Come on in and rest your feet a while. Then join us in a planet-wide race to save 1 million suffering animals who are about to learn the spectacular meaning of second chances.
About the Great Animal Rescue Chase
Welcome to the event that celebrates the heroic nature of the animal lover with an amazing mission to rescue one million. This free event is open to people everywhere, regardless of age or experience. Whether you're about to stage your very first rescue or celebrate your hundredth, this is the place for you. Simply go out and transform the life of a single animal in need, and if you love it as much as we think you will, then go ahead and do it all over again.
A Global Event for Animal Lovers
This is not an adoption drive. While there are many incredible charity initiatives aimed at finding homes for dogs and cats, and we'd be thrilled to inspire you to take in a needy pet, our aim is to challenge you to look at animal rescue in a new light. The Great Animal Rescue Chase is about taking a wider view and sizing up everyday opportunities to help animals in need, and more often than not, the defining moment will strike when you're least expecting it.
So pull your car over and move the turtle off the road. Untangle the fishing line wrapped around a pelican's wing. Call authorities to report that dog chained up without food or water. Take in that elderly stray cat wandering through the winter snow. Be late for work. Get swamp water on your sneakers. Get fur on the back seat of your car. And 10 years from now, you'll still be talking about the day you saved a life.
Most of all, we want to hear your story. You have an opportunity to teach and inspire others through your act of kindness. So, please tell us how you rescued a retired racehorse about to be sent to slaughter. Share photos of the orphaned squirrel you saved down at the park. Touch our hearts with your commitment to rehabilitate an injured koala. The truth is that the types of animals we save will be as diverse as the rescue team itself. You're about to become part of a global community of people who don't just care, they know how to get things done. There is no act of kindness too small. No rescuer too inexperienced. This rescue mission belongs to all of us, and for so many suffering animals across the planet, it has arrived not a moment too soon.
