City Dog Market kicks off its Toys for Spot donation drive today! Between now and Dec. 23, you can purchase a toy to donate to our rescue for 20% off. They’ll put it in Santa’s sack, and Santa will deliver the goodies for Christmas. Visit their store at 4244 Peachtree Rd NE in Atlanta or call in a donation from anywhere at 404-816-8050.
'Tis the season for giving and, even though so many of you give to the rescues year-round, you are still asking how best you can help the dogs this holiday season. Oh, let us list the ways! We have so many opportunities for everyone in every capacity and every location. Please, feel free to pick your favorite way. Every bit helps.
It’s Thanksgiving weekend, and we at rescue have so much to be thankful for this year. Like every year before it–and any year in dog rescue, to be quite honest—it has been both a fulfilling and a challenging one. We’ll start recapping 2015 soon enough, though, in separate blog entries. For now?
December was all about fundraising. Between our Angel Tree Drive, the awesome people we met at Whole Foods, and lots of individuals and businesses wanting to get in those last-minute tax-deductible donations, we were able to hook all of the dogs up with everything they needed ... and pay off some overdue vet bills. Woo-hoo! What an amazing end to an amazing year.
We are psyched to announce that we have been added to ebay's Giving Works program. This will not only give us a way to sell some of the donated items we receive for rescue but anyone who sells on ebay can help as well!
Join us for our latest online auction, Heartworm Help. This auction includes tons of great Jack Russell collectibles (mug, plate, statue, pin, books, etc.); several pieces of beautiful, hand-crafted jewelry; a swag bag for dog lovers; and a Keurig Vue V700 Brewing System with more than 130 pods for coffee, hot cocoa and tea. All proceeds help us cover heartworm treatment costs for our rescues.
We would like to thank Dog City Bakery for letting Jax, Cobb and Team Russell meet and greet customers at their Sandy Springs location last weekend. We had such a wonderful time! Join them this weekend to celebrate their one-year-anniversary of the Sandy Springs location opening!
Plan G: Shop online or order for store pickup ... and support the rescues without spending another dime!
