Fundación Rescate was started in 2012 in Sucua, Ecuador, located in the Ecuadorian Amazon, to address a dire need to provide a safe place for local children currently in unhealthy and unsafe environments. Local officials say that 2-3 children a day, need to be taken out of their home due to abuse, neglect, parenting and/or marital issues, and currently have very few options of support.
Our goal is to meet them in their time of darkness and show them God’s great love by providing a temporary safe home, Casa Rescate, for children ages 6-12 to serve not only their immediate physical, emotional and spiritual needs, but also those of their families. The reality is that these children will return to their families after a short period of time, therefore it is necessary to provide emotional and spiritual support, to not only these children, but also their families.

Paws for Life Utah is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping homeless dogs, cats and other “at risk” animals from municipal shelters find forever homes. We are a no-kill advocate, who through a partnership with the Heber valley animal shelter, accomplished the important goal of achieving their no-kill status in 2013. Since then, we have expanded our reach throughout the state of Utah to rescue animals at risk. We share Best Friend’s vision for the future of a “no kill” nation.
One of Paws for Life Utah’s primary goals is to collaborate with other rescues and shelters throughout Utah to help our state become “no kill”. We accomplish this through community awareness, providing medical, spay/neuter, immunization, microchipping and education, promoting and publicizing animals available for adoption, and hosting numerous remote adoption events throughout the year. We rescue both adoptable and those more challenging to place such as seniors and special needs. We house animals at the Heber shelter, with our fosters, and our boarding facility, Goldrush Kennels
We also provide health care and other services as needed, taking the time to work with animals in need, whether it be related to a medical issue, a behavioral issue or a basic training need. We also fund and administer immunizations for all animals entering our program.
We believe that the best way to attack the pet overpopulation problem is to focus on the root of the problem – preventing more dogs and cats from being born. Every pet that enters Paws for Life Utah’s program is spayed or neutered before being placed in his/her adoptive home. We strive to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering. We also provide support through a TNR (trap, neuter, release) program in an effort to reduce the number of feral cats and colonies in our communities.
We rely on volunteers to keep our organization running. Our volunteers assist at the shelter in walking the dogs, caring for the cats, cleaning cat cages and dog runs, and providing love, affection and exercise to help socialize the adoptable dogs and cats at the shelter, which facilitates their ability to find forever homes. We consider our partnership with Heber Valley Animal Services a model for other municipalities and rescue organizations to work together with a common goal for reducing the homeless pet population.
PERIOD was started in 2014 in Portland, Oregon by Nadya Okamoto while she was still in high
school. During that time Nadya’s family was experiencing housing instability. Nadya spent two hours
per day commuting to school, bringing her into contact with some of Portland’s most vulnerable. The
girls and women she encountered were creating their own makeshift menstrual products as they
could not afford to purchase them in the store. With a new understanding of the effect of poverty on
menstruators, Nadya started PERIOD, a youth-led organization changing the narrative on
menstruation and fighting for menstrual equity.
PERIOD solves this community problem working to end period poverty through service, advocacy
and education. PERIOD does this by providing free menstrual products to menstruators in need by
partnering with community organizations through our global network of hundreds of PERIOD
chapters. Our chapters and their advocates gather menstrual supplies and distribute them to
menstruators and organizations in need in their local communities. As of early 2020, we have served
almost one million periods and have been active in all 50 states and many countries around the
