How the wheels got turning...
It was during the planning of an art auction fundraiser, "The Ensemble", that the brainstorming of PAALS, Inc. began. For many years, members of the PAALS, Inc. board and upper management teams worked as full-time volunteers for various animal rescue organizations, always sticking to the cause and the grind, the blood the sweat and the tears.
"The Ensemble" being a collaboration event between Kyle's Legacy, Inc. and Survivor Tails Animal Rescue, it was only a matter of time before something clicked and we volunteers realized just how many causes -- in addition to animal rescue -- existed in every day life. For example Kyle's Legacy, Inc. is a nonprofit organization focusing on Canine Cancer Research... an all-too-real and all-too-heartbreaking fact of life staring us right in the face.
Animal rescue will always be an extremely important cause, worth every single ounce of blood sweat and tears shed by the tireless, superhero-volunteers who give of themselves every single day of the year. While some of the PAALS, Inc. Pods (event teams) will work hand-in-hand with nonprofit rescue organizations, the remaining Pods will be working with organizations that focus on causes such as animal endangerment, wildlife preservation, cancer research, animal prosthetics and more.
PAALS, Inc. is about being there for the organizations that are already working so very hard in an effort to Do Good. We want to assist by providing a financial relief stipend, so that these groups may continue to leap over hurdles, fight fires and bring any / all animals possible out of the darkness, and into the light with them.
