Gainesville has the good fortune to have many very good rescue groups. But, unlike many of them, Phoenix gets no funding from Maddie's Fund. They are completely independent, and I believe that gives them a bit more freedom to do as they think best. I can promise you that every dollar you give them will be well-spent.

Following an 18-month investigation by the Florida State Attorney, all charges against were dismissed for lack of evidence on August 31. This was a very expensive fight, one which included death threats made against Michelle Dunlap, the Executive Director of the rescue.
