Jonah & CC PerkinsonJonah Perkinson, http://jonahperkinson.com/  has always had a deep passion and love for animals, perhaps something he inherited from his mother CC Perkinson, a former professional jockey, now actress and producer for CC Variety TV  www.imdb.com/name/nm1704368/

Last week Jonah heard on the television that a large number of adoptable dogs and cats were being euthanized / killed every week because they had too many animals and not enough homes.  First he was saddened and heart- broken, then immediately he told his mother, “This is wrong, mom! Just plain wrong!” “What can I do to help save them?” His mom CC had friends on Facebook who knew of The Rescue Train and its upcoming “Race for the Rescues”

Jonah will be running in the race to show his support and dedication and expects to win. He started with just $25.00 and Jonah has already raised $1000.00 all going directly to the charity through the link below.

Any amount is helpful and appreciated, but what a great thing would it be to save the lives of beautiful animals who just need a home and your help.

No amount is too small and will go towards saving animals from euthanasia, providing the community with important programs like free spay/neuter and assistance with vet bills for low income families.

If only there were just a few more “Angels” simply willing to match what we’ve already raised? Are you one?

“Jonah’s passion for animals and doing “the right thing” were overwhelming,” stated CC. “As strong as I’ve had to be in raising him alone, I didn’t stand a chance against his dedication and insistence to help him help save the animals.”

“Through his guidance and ideas, in a very brief time we went from raising $25. on Facebook to near $1000.” Then he says to me in desperation; “Mom, we’re running out of time! Don’t you know someone who could write about what’s happening to these pets and how I’m trying to help save their lives?”

“He’s quite the little man. I’m so proud of him. He knows right from wrong and is willing to do something about it.”

Hosted by Golden Globe, People’s Choice and Emmy winning “Glee” actress Jane Lynch.
