Palm Valley Rotarians recently presented SAFE (Saving Animals from Euthanasia) with a generous donation made possible by their recent Caring for Kids Raffle Fundraiser.  SAFE was founded in 2008 with the goal of rescuing animals from kill shelters where they are facing euthanasia.  To date, SAFE, which operates entirely on donations and volunteer efforts, has rescued over 28,000 wonderful, precious pets who through no fault of their own became homeless.  Each has a story, a heart and feelings, and deserves a chance to have the home they want so desperately.  Among the other charities supported by the Palm Valley Rotary Club are Peace of Heart and Blessings in a Backpack, as well as many others.
