Big Donut is gearing up for the biggest race of his life on Saturday October 12th
BIG Donut has been busy trying on costumes, working on his leash skills in order to prepare for our big fundraiser Race for the Rescues. DDR is one of many dog rescues, all walking and running to save more shelter dogs, like Big Donut.
This year, we have dedicated our fundraising to our senior dog adoption program. When we rescue a senior dog, we typically spend $1500 to $3000 + for medical care.
Shelter dogs like Astria, who needed a major life saving surgery, now have loving homes because of your support. When we decide to rescue a dog from the shelter, we look for the under dogs, the senior dogs, the dogs that have spent months waiting for someone to adopt them.
Astria was adopted after having a major surgery to remove cancerous tumors. She spent over a year at the North Central Shelter before we rescued her.
Sometimes, we can’t save them, despite a surgery. We all hoped that Phoebe would recover from her surgery, and get adopted. Sadly, she was full of cancer, and did not find an adopter before she died. During the brief time that she spent with us, she lived in one of our senior suites, had multiple dog beds, lots of volunteers who spent time with her, made sure that she was comfortable up to the last day of her life.
Can you help us reach our goal of raising $20,000 so that we can continue to rescue more senior shelter dogs? Check out our page here
Please donate to the DDR team, even if you can’t come out to walk. All of the DDR dogs and volunteers
THANK YOU for your support!
