Modernica generously donates the land where we our kennel is located. I believe that because the dogs are so happy at our kennel, they get adopted and stay in those new homes because we don’t rush them into an adoption. Each dog has his or her own timetable. For some dogs, they come to us very dog and people social, others have issues such as dog aggression that we need to work on. For thousands of dogs who have lived at our Downtown Dog Rescue it’s a place to call home until his/her forever home comes along. Running the kennel is a dream come true for me and was something that I’ve wanted to do all my life. There is no better place to be than in the yard with 15 dogs that were formerly defined as unwanted, abused, aggressive towards other dogs, thrown away on the street, all playing together, happy, enjoying being dogs!
Under this initiative, we are also unveiling our first ever Sponsor-a-DDR Kennel Program. Pitlanthropy Circle donors can sponsor a kennel in memory and honor of family, friends and pets. Pay tribute to a beloved companion animal or loved one. Inscribed metal plaques are mounted permanently on dog kennels and can contain a message of up to 65 characters.
