Our volunteers, who donate precious time and much-needed services, come from all
walks of life and have a variety of skills and expertise. You don't have to be a
trained professional to help - just have some free time and the desire. We'll match
you to a "job" that fits both your time frame and your interests! I know some of
you are asking.... “Where is Poland,IN??” Well there are lots of things you can
do and not have to drive to the rescue. We have events in Hendricks County, south
side of Indy, and the Bloomington/Spencer area. If you have a question or suggestion
we would love to hear from you!

An Animal Rescuer My job is to assist God's creatures. I was born with the drive to
fulfill their needs. I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning
or selection I have bought dog food with my last dime. I have patted a mangy head
with a bare hand. I have hugged someone vicious and afraid. I have fallen in love
a thousand times and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times
to count. I have animal friends and friends who have animal friends. I don't often
use the word "pet". I notice those lost at the road side and my heart aches. I will
hand raise a field mouse and make friends with a vulture. I know of no creature unworthy
of my time. I want to live forever if there aren't any animals in Heaven, but I believe
there are. Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind? Some may
think we are master of the animals, but the animals have mastered themselves – something
people still haven't learned. But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind.
We are a quiet but determined army and we are making a difference every day. There
is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan, nothing more rewarding than saving
a life, no higher recognition than watching them thrive. There is no greater joy
than seeing a baby play, who only days ago was too weak to eat. By the love of those
who I've been privileged to rescue, I have been rescued. I know what true unconditional
love really is........ for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many, grateful
for so little.
I am an Animal Rescuer.... My work is never done, My home is never quiet, My
wallet is always empty, My heart is always full.

survive without contributions. OLBH receives no government assistance. All monies
are from individual contributions, volunteer sponsored fundraiser's, and bequests.
