Help us meet our goal.

Ten days ago we asked for your help, we asked you to join us in that leap of faith that is dog rescue and meet our fundraising goal of $11,000 to cover the expense of the puppies' care and Bailey's surgery. Thanks to your generosity, we are nearing that goal--and the puppies thank you, too. We are so close just another $3200 in donations.  The puppies are well on the path to full recovery and five of the six have been adopted. Vanilla Bean is the last puppy waiting for a forever home.  Now we need to meet our target so that we can pay the puppies' vet bills and turn our attention to sweet Bailey's (black lab) leg. 

Bailey is that other kind of dog that we take into the rescue. Bailey was found limping on her front leg.  After x-rays her break appears to be old injury.  The shelter thought she was thrown from a truck as she also had road rash on her chin. And yet his injury hasn’t dampened Bailey's spirit.  A sweet, friendly 6-month-old female Labrador, she loves to snuggle with her humans in her foster home, roll over for belly rubs, cavort with dogs and seek out adventures.  Our orthopedic surgeon believes he can dramatically improve her quality of life by repairing her leg.  

How do we not give this girl the chance she deserves for a normal life?  Her surgery goal is $4000.   


There are always risks in rescue, whether we are taking that leap of faith, as we did with the puppies, or when we learn about a dog like Bailey and can’t turn away. Our puppies and Baily really need your financial help.  


Please join us in reaching our fundraising goal of $11,000.
