Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since we started this amazing fundraiser. So many dogs and pups have been helped because of your donations and your purchases during the sale. We are planning to make this even bigger and better this year. Stay tuned for more details and start thinking about what you might be able to donate for this special event or what you might need to buy. Donations will be accepted starting July 1st at the shelter.
Adoptions have been very steady lately; as a result we have been able to take in more dogs every week. Remember, every adoption creates an opening for another life to be saved!
Do you want to learn about one particular dog that your donations help? Meet Lollipup. We have taken in more dogs recently from NY and Ohio puppy mills. Often these are puppies that were never sold and have become “too big” or “breeding stock” that have become too old or are not producing. Some of these are able to be adopted right away, but some are in very rough shape.
The older adults often have had little human contact; your heart breaks to see these dogs and to think of what they have been through. They can be very shut down emotionally-they don’t react other than wanting to hide away. One of our volunteers has been fostering a Golden Retriever Poodle mix for more than 2 months, and she is still not ready for a home. This volunteer has fostered a number of these mill dogs-they take a special person with a fenced yard (mill dogs are often escape artists) and the patience of a saint. Please follow Lollipup’s progress here http://www.caninerescue.org/lollipup-rescued-from-a-puppy-mill/ Sadly she is an example of what the mothers and fathers of the pups you see in pet stores are often like. Shut down, terrified, not knowing how to eat or drink from a bowl, what grass feels like under their feet or the kind touch of a human hand. With your help we do our best to change that!
