Joan is a relentless animal rescuer, and spends quite a lot of time assisting in the rescue, care, and placement of homeless dogs and cats, using her own resources. When you can’t find anyone else to help, Joan tries to be there. She assisted recently with the transport of a dog listed on “Dogs in Danger” to a safe haven in another state. She offered to pay the veterinary expenses for a disabled man’s cat, and has taken an elderly Shar Pei into foster care in her own home after the dog’s story was emailed to her.
Four years ago, while leaving for the Kentucky Derby, the Huscroft’s first heard the story of thoroughbred racing champion Afleet Alex and his connection to a little girl named Alex Scott. Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004) was the creator of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. When Alex was only 4-years-old, she voiced a simple wish, she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer.
Everyday I see people in need, they are walking down the street, there are 2 and 3 families living in one house. Families of 5 and 6 living in one bedroom apartments, there are no jobs, life is hard. I am not rich nor is my family, however if we have a dollar or $5 we help someone. It’s just how it should be love your neighbor. How many paychecks are you from, hungry, cold, or homeless? Think about it ½ of Americans are only a few paychecks from just that so we have to help when you can.
