Lets Chat About Cats - Episode 50 Featuring Ashley & Logan Ryan from Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation AKA RARF
Jun 04, 2022
Fiona Shaw

On this episode of the podcast I had a chance to virtually meet with Ashley and Logan Ryan who are the founders of RARF - Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation.

Many of you will know that Lets Chat About Cats Podcast and Sterling "Trapking" Davis have teamed together and dedicated the official 2023 calendar to RARF and they will be the beneficiary of the proceeds raised from sales of this one off fundraiser. The monies will assist RARF and their ongoing collaboration with Sterling. This includes funding for grants within the community assisting people with gaining non-profit status which in turn helps them continue important work in the community caring for animals as well as TNR.

Ashley and Logan speak a little bit more about themselves in depth, sharing their background and the wonderful story of how they ended up creating their own non profit. It was not planned but was something they felt they could use as a wonderful tool to help so many after a chance photo almost broke the internet overnight.

RARF does so much that it is almost hard to summarise but Ashley and Logan strongly emphasise that their organisation is always organic and is open to adaptation. They refuse to remain stagnant in a world that is ever changing with challenges and trials to overcome, especially within the rescue field. Having had to adapt how they did things during covid they know first hand that to continue to be successful means being open minded and learning from those who have something to share with you.

Some of the work RARF do is helping communities and the people behind the animals as well as the animals. Providing financial aid to assist those who need it, educational programmes which enhance animals lives and behavioural training which supports the reduction in owner surrender and keeps pets out of shelters.

Logan also is proud of his monthly campaign which takes long serving shelter residents who have been passed by time and time again and raises their profile with the hope of them being adopted finally into a loving home which they are craving and which they deserve.

Ashley and Logan were introduced to the cat world through their daughter who adores kittens and is so involved with the fostering of the many kittens who come through their door. Avery is young but already understands the importance of litter tray maintenance and that its not just about cuddly and playful kittens. She does the hard work too.

The Ryan's are a humble and kind family with animals at the forefront of their daily life and its kudos to them that they have taken Logan's profile as an NFL player and used it for something truly positive and really make a difference in the world. As Logan explains it is important to break down barriers and show that even in the most macho sport you can still love animals.

Please enjoy this episode and if you haven't yet purchased your calendar to support RARF please consider doing so. It is a wonderful production with some of the most beautiful and special cats who had a sad or bad start in life and each represent a special rescue. As Sterling would say we are all #SAMETEAM in this together and after all sharing is caring!
