What we aim to solve New!

Two by Two Rescue operates in a state where destruction is the prevalent practice for addressing homeless animals. In Alabama, it is a rare exception if two out of ten shelter animals are adopted. It is our belief that euthanasia is not a solution to the crisis. We believe in life and are committed to rescuing any animal regardless of age, breed, color, or medical condition. Our intake is limited only by available space in an approved foster home. Once our Life Center in Pelham, Alabama, is operational, it will increase our capacity. We are addressing the overpopulation through adoption, education, as well as encouraging spay or neuter.

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We plan to grow our No Kill rescue, expanding into the Northeast U.S. We plan to break ground on a state-of-the-art six thousand square foot facility in Pelham, Alabama, that will house 200 dogs as well as other animals and replicate it throughout the state. Additionally we are continuously increasing our number of foster homes. We average an adoption a day, primarily of dogs. We teach the general public, law enforcement officers, animal control personnel, and schools on a variety of topics including the basics of pet care, breed knowledge, humane treatment, the importance of spay/neuter, as well as local laws. We provide opportunities for community service and animal advocacy.

We plan to expand, diversity, and train the board of directors, transition to a staffed and volunteer organization, develop and implement a marketing plan, develop and strengthen relationships with Pelham businesses and leaders. We plan to insure the Financial Security of Two by Two as we create and staff a Development Department, conduct a Capital campaign for the Life Center, increase number annual gifts, increase number of monthly supporters, establish an Estate Planning program, intensify transfer of property, continue to build donor relationships, diversity funding sources, recruit corporate sponsors, increase in-kind services, and increase grant applications.

We have the board, staff, leadership team, volunteers and community support to enable us to reach our goals. We have excellent media relationships, life-changing stories to share, enthusiastic donors, and have earned credibility in the community.

Our leadership team will evaluate the action plans established to meet the goals quarterly. Additionally we publish our census data on our website and through Shelter Animals Count. We are committed to excellence in all that we do.

We are committed to the No Kill philosophy and have maintained a statistical zero euthanasia rate. We have begun to hire staff and have secured the volunteer services of an expert grant writer. We have begun meeting with leaders of the Pelham and Shelby County business community and are finding enthusiastic support for our mission. We are continually growing our approved foster homes thus increasing our intake. We have vastly expanded our grant submissions are are welcoming new financial resources to help us reach our goals. We have become a member of the Best Friends Network, attended national conferences, and had staff approved to participate in country-wide apprenticeships to strengthen our work.
