The Dr. Joel M. Woolfson Compassion Fund

The reason we care...

Annie’s Rescue Ride was created to save the lives of shelter dogs, but to also honor the memory of my beloved dog, Annie. Sadly, on September 15, 2015, Annie’s dad, my soul mate and the spark that started my fire to rescue, save and aid animals in need, passed away. Joel’s death has shown me that life is fleeting and fragile. His passing has forced me to recalibrate my life. It has also strengthened my resolve to come to the aid of the abused, the unwanted, the unloved and the discarded. Joel’s work ethic as a veterinarian was legendary. His humane and compassionate manner were demonstrated in so many ways---from this passionate and successful stance against devocalization to his insistence that his colleagues and staff adhere to strict humane and ethical standards. Joel was a soft spoken man who had a lion’s roar when it came to speaking out for an animal’s welfare.

Annie’s Rescue Ride

So, Annie’s Rescue Ride is now in memory of my beloved Annie and Joel. Their gentle and loving spirits will be with me for every mile, every journey, every rescue and every mountain that I will have to climb to save a life. I will never feel alone, for the both of you are with me in every dog kiss, every wag of a tail and every sigh of relief when an animal finally is able to sleep knowing they are rescued-- knowing they are safe.

If you've been touched by one of Joel’s many acts of kindness or simply admire his deep commitment to protecting animals, please help keep his legacy alive.

Annie’s Rescue Ride has established the Dr. Joel M. Woolfson Compassion Fund to provide stray dogs, cats and other cast-off animals with the veterinary care Joel would have given them.

Help Continue Joel's Legacy

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf....
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
