Onward & Upward into 2010!
Posted: 12/29/2009

 

As we gear up for 2010, we reflect on the past year.....2009 was a tough year.  We struggled to figure out how we would fund our rescue work in 2009, but thanks to the good heartedness of so many we were able to save the lives of 79 animals. 

Two of these dogs had expenses of over $5,000.00 EACH for major hip repairs and knee replacement surgeries and post operative care.  We had no idea how we could ever pay such large bills for just 2 dogs but once again many people stepped up and assisted us in financing these surgeries.  These 2 dogs now live with families who adore them and there is no greater reward for the work we do then to have them living out the lives they truly deserve free of pain and suffering.

We know we have an uphill battle once again to fund our work for 2010.  We are very aware that our economy is still in turmoil and that so many people we come in contact with are just barely making ends meet.  We are humbled in these tyring times that we raised $5,335.00 in our Holiday Fund Drive to kick off the New Year with.  We already have our sights on some death row dogs who need our help immediately in order to live.

We plan to forge into 2010 with an unwavering determination and dedication to our mission.  Our volunteer and foster home TEAM inspires me to raise my expectations of what we can accomplish in 2010.  They are such passionate people who hold me accountable to our vision of Top Notch Quality of Care at every stage of the rescue and adoption process.  I am honored and grateful to have them believe in and hold true to what we set out to do when this rescue started.
