Angel Sponsors


Freedom Bridge Animal Rescue is forever grateful to the many people and businesses who support us in saving every dog that needs our help. 

With the help of so many, here are four of the sweet pups we've been able to help get excellent medical care and find loving homes. They are among the hundreds who are now leading happy lives with their new families, thanks to our village of support!

Angel Supporters

Mary & Rob Fanning

Charles & Susan Faughnan

Debbie & Pike Caskey

We are incredibly grateful to the women of the four Island Passage stores for their amazing support towards covering SO MANY medical expenses for our sweet pups in need! Their donations brought us to tears. Without their fabulous fundraising, we would have struggled to cover the incredible bills for all of our medical pups/puppies. We are SOOOO grateful for their generosity and spirit!!!

We are eternally grateful for the very generous donation we were honored to receive from Mary Fanning on behalf of herself and her husband Rob who passed away at a young age. One of Rob's wishes was for Mary to continue to support those who rescued the poor souls who have no voice. We are so very grateful for her and Rob's generosity so that we may continue our mission. 

We are SO grateful to receive a very generous donation
from the foundation owned by Charles and Susan Faughnan.
Mr. & Mrs. Faughnan have been such generous supporters of our work. Without their help and their belief in our mission, we would have struggled to save as many pups as we have and we are eternally grateful!!

We so appreciate the continued donations made by Debbie Caskey in her husband Pike's honor, through their foundation. We have been able to save so many pups with medical needs because of her generosity.
