Non-profit gets pets fostered, adopted from animal control
A working mother with six children is the catalyst for the rescue of thousands of Jones County’s stray animals.
Dani Faulkner is the founder of Rock on Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit agency, which came into existence about a year and a half ago. She works with Jones County Animal Services and other rescue organizations, such as a Paw and a Prayer and the Pixel Fund, to find foster and forever homes for stray dogs and cats.
Faulkner said she was drawn into animal rescue by her neighbor, Jackie Avant, who is a long-time animal activist.
“Our primary focus is the rescue of the animals in our shelter,” she said.
Jones County Animal Services manager John Jackson said Faulkner and her organization do a great job.
“She comes to animal control every week, takes videos and pictures and puts them on Facebook,” he said.
Faulkner said she posts the pictures on the Paw and a Prayer Facebook page, and it is viewed across the United States. She said a black pit bull mix was transported to Pennsylvania Friday night.
