Deerly Beloved, The Saving Trooper Story: Help Us To Save The Baby Deer Of Ohio With Our Documentary

Update posted by Deerly Beloved The Saving Trooper Story On Jul 26, 2017

Hello Deer Friends,

We recently made our first trip to Ohio to meet and film Trooper and his friends (the other animals that live with him and his wonderful human caregivers). It was quite an experience, one that none of us will ever forget. Trooper is a sweet gentle soul and was welcoming to all of us. He has touched each of our hearts in such a way that we are better people for having met him.

We were able to get many interviews and quite a bit of the much needed footage of Trooper. We will need to return 2-3 more times to get additional footage and we hope to meet more state representatives for interviews and will continue to keep you posted here on this page and also through our Facebook page. Please "like" our Facebook page and follow us there if you haven't already done so and please invite your friends to like our page, as well.

A good portion of our recent trip was self-funded and we used the donations we have received through this site to cover our airfare to Ohio. We will never be able to thank you all enough for your contributions to our documentary. Without your help we would not have made it this far. We will have additional costs of course, to finish filming. Please share our link through social media, or through email with your family and friends, if you are so inclined. We simply cannot do this without you.

We all thank you very humbly for your support.

Hi all,

First of all, thank you for your continued support. We wouldn't be this far along if it were not for all of you!

The baby deer have been coming early this year and there are already a lot of abandoned babies that need help! The courageous rescuers in Ohio are already getting a lot of calls about babies in distress that need care! We are planning on being in Ohio later this month to start filming and to help the baby deer in any way that we can, too.

To film in mid-July (finally) we need to cover the costs of a small crew, travel, lodging and equipment rentals. If we can raise enough money we would like to hire two additional crew members. If we can just cover the cost of this first trip we could get a substantial amount of footage for the documentary and will work towards raising the funds for the next leg of production as we go along. This will accomplish so much good for the baby deer of Ohio and other states that have the heartless law in place to kill any baby deer that has been orphaned or abandoned. At this time we need to raise an additional $4400 to take a very small crew to Ohio to film. None of us are working on this documentary for pay, by the way, this is just to cover travel and equipment rental costs. If we are able to raise more, we will hire two additional crew members in Ohio to save on the travel expenses. We could definitely use them.

Admittedly, fund raising is not our strong point and we really need your help. Sharing our link and telling your friends will go a long way. A lot of little animals that deserve a chance at rescue and rehab will benefit from this documentary. We need all the support we can get and definitely cannot do this without you.

Thank you again for supporting this cause and our documentary. Words cannot describe our gratefulness.

Hello Deerly Beloved Friends,

We wanted to give you an update on this campaign. First of all, thank you all for continuing to stay with us and for sharing our links and emailing us with encouragement. It really does make a difference.

We are working towards getting to Ohio at the beginning of the year to meet with the Saving Trooper team to document their progress and to meet Trooper and Patch. We have some crew members in the local area that have offered to work on our documentary for a fraction of their normal rates.

We also have our own Facebook page now. Please take a moment to "like" us. We'll share many images and videos there.

We also have a new video for our funding page. If you haven't already watched it, please have a look. These little fawns sound just like babies. It's mind-blowing, really.

Please share our link with your friends. As always we are grateful to you all!

Sincerely,

The Deerly Beloved Team

Hello Deer Friends,

We're still trying to raise the funds to get our crew out to Ohio. There have been delays however, our spirits are not dampened. We are committed to getting our bill passed and getting this story told. Our hope is to save the fawns of Ohio, but we also would like to shed light on this topic to hopefully bring change in other states, as well. One day we hope to use this documentary to educate young children about the importance of respecting wildlife. These beautiful creatures are not just here for man's recreation (hunting). They are precious beings that deserve a chance at life.

Please share our link with your friends and loved ones.

Thank you!

Hello Deer Friends!

We wanted to send an update about our project. As some of you may know our bill was passed over in one session, stalled in another and we are waiting once again to have our opportunity to be heard. This along with the death of Trooper's human daddy and caretaker Andy, delayed our progress. Our hearts were and are still broken. He was a gentle soul and one of a kind. The animals needs extra care for quite some time. They knew he was gone and they also suffered from the loss. They feel just like we do, as you know.

Because of the delays getting our bill assigned to a committee, as well as the loss of Andy, our documentary naturally also had to be delayed. We needed some time to grieve and regroup. We've discussed it and we all agree that we are ready now.

The production team has called out many favors and because of this the documentary can be made for much less money. We have decided to promote our fundraising efforts in stages. We will have the film crew come to Ohio in May for the first round of interviews and to catch some footage of the newborn deer that will be "arriving". We'll raise the money as we go, for each step of the production. If we are able to raise the entire funds sooner, that won't be a bad thing, at all. We will be able to use any additional funds for rescue and rehab.

Thank you all so much for being our support system. We appreciate your love, support, patience and encouragement while we were stalled in our efforts and when we lost sweet Andy. With spring here and the babies coming, we've got to get moving!

Please share our link with your family and friends and any animal lovers that cross your path!


Sincerely,


The Saving Trooper Team

Thank you deer friends, thank you for your support! We won't give up our fight. We are doing all that we can to bring awareness to this horrifying issue. Our bill was "skipped" when it was supposed to be assigned to a committee. It is a temporary setback and we will get to the bottom of it.

In the meantime, we have received more devastating news about sweet fawns that have been stolen from their rescuers and killed by the DNR in Ohio as well as other states. We can't stand by and just watch! We are still trying to raise funds for a strong legal team and we MUST get our documentary made! Please continue to share the link to this fundraiser and we will continue our fight to save lives.

With love to each and every one of you from the Saving Trooper Team..

These babies have the right to live and these wonderful rescuers should not have their hearts broken because they care.
