Mama’s gona Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded on July 21st, 2015 by Amanda Mamagona. Amanda’s love for dogs and animals was the driving force behind starting this organization. As a child Amanda would find animals and bring them home with hopes of saving them. That love grew more and more into her adult life and she is now helping countless numbers of animals get a second chance through her rescue. Since the start of Mama’s gona Rescue, the organization has saved dogs and cats that were on shelter kill lists, dogs that were feral roaming the streets, dogs that were surrendered by owners, and dogs that were subject to neglect. Mama’s gona Rescue has a working relationship with area animal control departments, the SPCA, the Popcorn Park zoo, and other animal rescue organizations who all strive for the same result, giving these animals a second chance. This is all accomplished with the extensive network of foster homes assisting Mama’s gona Rescue, from New Jersey down to South Carolina. Mama’s gona Rescue’s staff is all volunteer with professional backgrounds such as Paramedic, ER nurse, Attorney Secretary, Assistant Fire Chief, Veteran, and Banker. Due to veterinary costs and budget restraints, Mama’s gona Rescue has to do fundraisers and adoption events to sustain operations. Monetary donations and tangible donations such as dog treats, blankets, crates, and food are all necessary to continue to operate. Veterinary care for rescues are paid for by Mama’s gona Rescue which includes all age appropriate shots, deworming, and any unforeseen emergencies such as parvo. Mama’s gona Rescue has been accepted to participate in the State of New Jersey spade and neuter program which offers discounted spay and neuter rates to adopted rescue dogs. In addition to dog and cat rescue, Mama’s gona rescue has partnered with a wildlife rehabilitator and is working under their license to rehabilitate baby squirrels. When baby squirrels are found, they are brought to Mama’s gona Rescue and are given proper nutrition and care for an eventual release back into the wild. On average, Mama’s gona Rescue rehabilitates 30 to 50 squirrels in a season.
