RUSTON WITCHES RIDEOctober 16, 2021 These efforts will directly benefit 4 Paws Rescue and Misfit Farms Rescue & Sanctuary. Please take a moment to read what we are about in hopes of you jumping on board with us to help the underserved animals in our area.
The first “Witches Ride” began in the small Florida town of Seaside 30 years ago, when friends dressed up like witches and rode their bikes to the beach for fun. The community became curious and joined in. Soon, the “Witches Ride” turned into a fundraiser powerhouse! In 2016, Fairhope, AL began their annual “Witches Ride” and their donations started supporting the Furrever Homes pet rescue with a $12,000 donation at first and has grown since. The “Witches Ride” began to grow and developed in Mobile, AL and Natchez, MS which, due to much success, has already resulted in an offshoot spay/neuter program.
I have attended the Natchez “Witches Ride” for the past three years. I am amazed by two things: there is something so empowering about watching the community come together while 50-100 women (of all ages), dress up, smile, wave, ride their decorated bikes through downtown and throw candy to children. It is truly a fun WHIMSICAL time for everyone. Being an animal lover, this event brings me so much joy knowing I am donating to a great cause of pet rescue in their community! I love it so much that I decided to bring it HOME to RUSTON so the rescues in our area are able to benefit and continue taking care of the pets in need here at home.
Thank You. we can't wait to FLY with you!
