“Saturday night was wonderful …  awesome … no words can describe how that made me feel for all of you to come out to show your support for the rescue.  It was possible for all of you to come and enjoy talking about the dogs and celebrating the holiday with all the Jack people or “Team Russell,” as Kim calls all of us.  So many of you have adopted and so many of you love the rescues like you would if they were your dogs.  In a way, they are your dogs–you help me feed them, get them food, toys and give them so much love.

As I said, I could not do any of it without all of you to help me. Please, know if I left anyone out on Saturday in my speech, it was because I could not go a second longer without a breakdown.”

I have so much support from all of you for the dogs. Some others may think I am crazy–and I am–but all of you understand how important the rescue is to me, and the support for me and the dogs is amazing! Everyone has the same compassion as I do for the wonderful little dogs.

Thanks to each and every one  each of you are special to me.  I have a rescue family. –

And, on that note … this is how the volunteers, supporters and foster/adopted parents feel about Mama Donna …
