We celebrated our first Merry Terrier Holiday Party last night in Atlanta and had a terrier of a time! What started as a year-end celebration with just a few volunteers grew into a big gathering of our extended family at rescue, including volunteers, supporters and foster/adopted parents … and, of course, Mama Donna.
It was a great evening of incredible food (so much food!), drinks, music, new rescue videos (debuting shortly), raffle giveaways, an adorable custom JRT ornament tree, and good old conversation about all of our four-legged kids.
We also hosted a raffle drawing for a barnhunt donated by Meredith Minkin with Canine PhD and B.D. Malone from Beastie Darlings. One of our volunteers won the drawing and donated it back to the rescue!! It looks like little Frazier (who knows how to “go to ground” like no one you’ve ever seen) will be enrolled in the class! We can’t wait to follow his progress.
Thank you to everyone for making 2013 such an incredible year. As Mama Donna briefly said before the tears kicked in, everyone brings something special to the table that makes this thing work and we couldn’t do it without you.
Special thank you to Sheryl Cherico and MD Tech Pro/Tier 3 for loaning us the beautiful space!
