THE CAUSE

Every year, countless awesome animals having already suffered from neglect, abuse, or displacement end up with a one-way ticket to one of our highly overcrowded, underfunded, & understaffed shelters or worse. But this story doesn’t need to have a tragic ending because there are an extremely special & select group of rescue organizations which can grant these awesome animals a 2nd chance at life through an incredible drive, volunteering, fostering, & adoption. The RIDE TO RESCUE is honored to now support the tireless life-saving efforts of these Animal Welfare organizations:

  • Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue & Adoptions Inc.
  • Trinity Rescue Inc.
  • Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc.

Generally speaking, proper & sufficient resources are the only things that prevent such amazing organizations from reaching their full potential. And that’s where you can truly make a difference. Come out and ride. Join us in championing the Animal Welfare Cause.

THE STORY

“He was destined for death row! Sampson was a handsome St. Bernard & Brittany Spaniel mix who lived comfortably with his elderly owner in a ritzy neighborhood. Through no fault of his own, Sampson’s exuberant personality and lack of training got him into trouble with the neighbors so his owner took him to the local vet to be put down. This story would have likely had a quick & tragic ending had it not been for a kindhearted individual who decided to take ownership of Sampson and to find him a suitable home.
On September 4, 2001, fate & karma united Sampson & I. He was a very hard nut to crack! But still, we quickly bonded and almost immediately became inseparable. That was until exactly 1 week later when all of our lives were changed forever as we came under attack by 19 terrorists who had been duped with a promise of 72 virgin dudes!! Soon after that, it seemed that Sampson & I’s fledgling bond was bound to be broken as I tried to reunite with the Marines. But God & some old injuries had other plans so Sampson & I remained together. From then on, our bond simply soared. Sure, there was some turbulence along the way but anyone who has ever been in a special relationship knows that is to be expected.

Sadly, the final chapter to this story ended in 2011 after 10 amazing years with Sampson. Up until that year, I had been doing a solo annual mountain bike century ride as a 09/11 memorial. In 2011, I decided to invite a few friends to join me and donate the money to an animal rescue group in memory of Sampson. That year, we raised over $6,000 with just a handful of riders. This was the seed for years to come which has now blossomed to an event we call: The Ride To Rescue. So as the great Paul Harvey used to say: “…and now you know the rest of the story”.

THE RIDE

What started out as a small group of avid weekend and novice cyclists coming together once a year to raise money and awareness for Animal Welfare in GA. has grown into a couple hundred riders! The original annual bike ride was dubbed: “Operation For The Love Of Dog”. In its first 6 years, the amazing pedaling power of this relatively small grassroots movement managed to generate over $80,000 for some extremely devoted animal rescue organizations. Fast forward
to 2018 and Ride to Rescue is now supporting three Animal Welfare organizations this year. Join us for our 7th Annual Ride to Rescue event in beautiful White GA. near our event partner Sosebee Cycle Park. We can’t do what we do without you. For more details about the ride: CLICK HERE
