I cannot say this enough: “Philanthropy makes the heart grow!”
I have been blessed with wonderful rescue dogs throughout my life. Sadly, we lost our darling, light of our life, Bichon boy, Finnigan, on September 25th of this year. He was just shy of 18 years old when we said goodbye to him. We adopted him on November 7th, 2009, at the ripe old age of 11, and never dreamed we’d have this sweet, gentle happy soul, with us this long. We are thankful for every day we had together and miss him with all our hearts. We gave our precious boy almost seven years of an affectionate, playful and loving home with us and miss him terribly.
Lily and Tilly are still with us and turned seven and eight this year! We are blessed with so much dog love in our house. Please know that you will never regret adopting an older dog and encourage everyone to open your heart and go for it. You will not be disappointed. They have so much love to give and years of life to share with you. ‘Tis the season to make a donation to a rescue organization near and dear to your heart.
It’s so important to support organizations that save dogs from kill shelters and abusive or neglectful homes and work to help rehabilitate them so they can be adopted by loving, caring families. All dogs deserve to live out their lives in a safe environment with love and affection. This year we have added Dhana Metta Rescue Society to our list of charities to support. Many of these groups, such as Paws for Hope, also work tirelessly to stop the retail sale of animals in pet stores, all of which come from puppy mills.
Shelters and groups do such wonderful, heartwarming work and are in need of your help. Donations of dog food, blankets and towels are always needed and if you can find it in your heart, and your wallet, to make a cash donation, it will be gratefully accepted.
If you are looking for an organization to support and want a recommendation, please call or e-mail us for further information and suggestions. We have several organizations listed on our Community Links page on our website.
Happy holidays -- give your doggies a big hug and kiss and tell them how much you love them every day.
