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?

We would also like to invite potential adopters, supporters and/or volunteers to come out and meet everyone.
By now, you’ve read about and seen the photos from our Fall Vol Day last Saturday. Donna was blown away from the turnout and commitment of so many to help her with the dogs. There were a couple of years after Jimmy passed that it was just her and another friend/volunteer or two wrapping kennels.
