“We are so excited that this is taking place at Thompson Toyota, as we all care so much about adoptions and pets,” said Laura Thompson-Barnes, Vice President of The Thompson Organization. “We believe in the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program and are so excited that an organization in our area has won one of the vehicles.”
In its second year, Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good Campaign is a national philanthropic program that awards 100 cars to 100 non-profits over the course of 100 consecutive days. Winners are selected each day through public voting on Facebook. Last Chance Ranch will use their new Tundra to provide emergency animal rescues and stray animal services by picking up donations, hauling trailers for feed and bedding, and transporting horses.
“We always have animals available for adoption – mainly dogs and horses, but we’ll pick up an emu here or a chicken there,” said Lori McCutcheon, President and Founder of Last Chance Ranch. “This truck is really such an asset to us, especially to our Horse Department.”
In the weeks leading up to the truck presentation, Thompson Toyota also collected animal supplies and monetary donations for Last Chance Ranch. With the help of P&A Feed and Pet in Doylestown and members of the community, $200 was raised and the entire bed of the truck – over 71.5 cubic feet – was filled with supplies. “It’s like Christmas!” McCutcheon said.
