These days in rescue you meet a lot of people you never would have otherwise thanks to the power of technology… There are people from all over the world that have become supporters of 1 Day Ranch and the work we do via Facebook, Twitter, our website, etc. These people become our friends, family, cheerleaders, and many times the only way we make it from day to day. One of these people that I met a while ago is Kimberly Taj Bowman. Kimberly was a huge animal advocate and she was constantly working to help 1 Day Ranch do more work to save animals in need.
Kimberly passed away this morning at 6:30am from liver failure. Kimberly’s mother called me this morning and gave me the news, and also said that their family would like to request that friends and family send donations to 1 Day Ranch in lieu of flowers as they know this is what Kimberly would have wanted. We are incredibly touched and honored by their kindness, and as a result we are setting up the Kimberly Taj Bowman Memorial Fund for special needs animals that come in to our program. This is our way to honor Kimberly’s selfless nature and her family’s beautiful wish for those to remember her. We will also be placing a special memorial plaque in the new barn so that she will be remembered by all who enter there.
If you would like to make a donation to the Kimberly Taj Bowman Memorial Fund you may do so via our PayPal donation link (Make sure you state for the “KTBMF”) Or check by mail to 16704 Bethel Road Shawnee, OK 74801 (and make sure on the check you note for the KTBMF in the memo line)
Please also keep Kimberly’s family and friends in your prayers during this horrible and difficult time. I know they are amazing people, just like her. Thank you for your love and friendship, Kimberly. We will make sure your spirit lives on in all that we do.
