Adventures of Willy Goat

Hi! My name is Willow and I’m a lucky dog that was found under a porch and am now living my best adventure life! I want to give back to those who help rescue animals, care for them and find them their forever homes so all the proceeds from my calendars will go to Empire Animal Rescue Society (EARS) out of Salamanca, NY. I am also hoping to raise more awareness on the importance of adopting homeless animals versus buying.

EARS is a local foster based animal rescue in Cattaraugus County dedicated to rescuing abandoned, abused, neglected and endangered animals. In the years since 2011, EARS has continued to work extensively with the local community, local Dog Control Officers, and expanded to include dogs and cats pulled from high kill shelters in rural Kentucky. They are a 100% volunteer organization relying solely on donations and support from the community the serve. Their volunteer base has grown to over 100 members have been fortunate enough to find homes for over 800 otherwise forgotten and abandoned animals yearly. It's important to note that EARS does not cherry pick- they take the hard cases; the animals other rescues pass over. They have also started a Prison Program to implement an inmate/foster dog program with the primary goal being more dogs socialized, well trained and subsequently adopted to their forever homes as well as to provide veterans with certified service dogs. They are also involved with Community Outreach Programs to raise awareness in the importance of spaying and neutering.
