Here's the latest RESCUE update:
On 7/10 RESCUE dog Merlin was adopted. You may recall that Merlin is the dog with lymphoma. Merlin found the most amazing home with Tammy and Frank. They have created a blog for him. Here's the link.
On 7/11 RESCUE held a "Topless" car wash. Some folks were a bit upset by this as they thought human beings, specifically women were going to be topless. :0 Despite the fact that public nudity is illegal, all our human volunteers (including the men) did have their tops on. The dogs, however did not! :) The dogs were only wearing their sporty swim trunks!! The event was a great success and brought in $950. Here are some photos and video from the event.
On 7/11 RESCUE also had a Bead Party which generated $500 towards ou life saving efforts! Big thanks to RESCUE volunteer Karen for all her efforts in hosting the lovely event at her home. Here are photos from the event.
On 7/17 RESCUE held an Ice Cream Social at Noble Beast Pet Market. We had a great time and the humans and the canines enjoyed their tasty cool treats. The event raised $250. Here are photos from the event.
On 7/20 RESCUE dog Murray was adopted. He got an awesome home with a wonderful home. Murray and the 11 year old boy are already best buddies. Murray will have lots of fun in the pool, hiking, camping and time at the families cabin in Pine.
On 7/21 RESCUE dog Danny was adopted. You may recall Danny was a very, very thin and sick dog when we rescued him. He was only 12 pounds when we saved him now he is a healthy 20 pounds!!! He is also overcoming his shyness and his new parents are very patient and loving. He will be doted on and cared for all the days of his life.
We are looking forward to seeing all of them and other past RESCUE dogs at our upcoming Adopter's Picnic on 10/24!!! More details will follow but all past RESCUE adopters are welcome.
RESCUE has been working very hard raising money for our largest fundraiser of the year - Bowlarama. The event is next weekend. Our goal is to raise $45k! That's sure is a lot of money but it's the bare bones minimum we need to save and care for the dogs and cats of RESCUE for about 4-5 months. With lots of support from the community we have already raised $35k!!!!!!! THAT'S AMAZING!!! For those of you that have made donations or asked folks to make donations - THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We could not do this without your support! Dogs like Murray, Merlin and Danny were once discarded and made their way onto the "kill list. But thanks to your support they are now in loving, permanent homes! Your donations help us continue to save dogs (and cats) just like them. If you haven't made a donation, please make one today! Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated!!
Thank you for following RESCUE's journey. We look forward to seeing you again!
Here's to a great week!!!
