Jonah Perkinson A Little Man with a Big Heart for a Good Cause

Jonah Perkinson, http://jonahperkinson.com/ (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/ (http://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’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,

The 8th Annual Race for the Rescues – Los Angeleswill be held Sunday, October 6th, 2013, at The Rose Bowl, 1001 Rose Bowl Dr., Pasadena, CA 91103 - Area H -Immediately South of the Rose Bowl.

Registration begins at 7am. The Race starts at 8:30 am. The Expo area opens at 7AM – 12:30 PM.

The event is open to the public. You must be a paid register to run in the race however anyone can attend the Expo for FREE! Come out and join the fun!

THE RESCUE TRAlN http://www.therescuetrain.org/ is a unique, 501(c)(3) non- profit, no-kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia through hands-on rescue work, education and awareness. Donations are tax deductible.Tax ID # is 20-1897642

Their goal to rescue dogs and cats off the streets and from city shelters before euthanasia and to find them loving homes.

All the money raised will go to help the homeless dogs, cats and horses of Southern California

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?

To give any donation to help Jonah help save rescues go to: http://www.racefortherescues.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=don...
