Episode 184. Rebecca Eaves – Past President-(2013-2019), The Arrow Fund (Animal Welfare Organization)
Rebecca Eaves saves and protects animals suffering from abuse and neglect.
Rebecca is a long-time animal rescuer and activist, the founder and president of The Arrow Fund. This Kentucky-based non-profit provides medical treatment to animal victims of torture, abuse, or neglect and then finds them loving homes. In addition, the organization takes legal possession of the animal and holds the abuser responsible by pursuing legal action against them. This selfless mission is genuinely fueled by love, as all the members of The Arrow Fund Board are volunteers and are not paid for their services.
Rebecca says her mission began in 2009, when a labrador mix, later named Aiden, was deliberately shot with an arrow in Pike County. She then became no stranger to the spotlight, spreading the message about animal abuse everywhere she could, drawing attention to this critical cause, and educating the public.
Rebecca has seen the worst in people in the harm inflicted on animals and the best in those who work tirelessly to save them. The first thing she says to every rescued animal? “You will never be hurt again.”
