We Made it! Thank You for Standing By Us.
What a blessing it has been to have you by our side during one of the most challenging years of our lifetimes. We made it! We could not have accomplished what we have without YOU! We wish to express our deepest gratitude to you for always encouraging us and supporting our rescue mission.
Last year felt like we were holding our breath, and the entire nation was on hold. Even though our rescue was not designated an essential business, we felt vital to the families with furry companions in our service area and beyond. As a rescue, we couldn’t just stay on hold. So, we got back to work, harder than ever. Dogs and their humans needed us.
Operating a rescue is challenging enough even in the best of times! Can you imagine what The Doghouse was like during a worldwide pandemic? With an average of 75 rescue dogs in the house at any one time, plus more needing our help every day, we couldn’t close our doors. Our staff quickly adapted to entirely new safety protocols, such as wearing masks and daily temperature scanning. Many of you were still willing to adopt but couldn’t come into The Doghouse, so we held our “meet & greets” outside. Supplies were at an all-time low. Like you, we were running around trying to find toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning supplies but on a grand scale for our rescue needs. Our doors had to remain open for the houseful of amazing dogs that without us would have no hope of a future life of happiness. With that said, we realized that a multitude of owners, because of financial hardship, had no choice but to surrender their beloved dogs.
We tried our very best to be there for our dogs and beloved pets of our community members through it all. While we were there for them, you were there for us every step of the way. With your help, here is what we were able to accomplish:
We believe every animal’s life matters, therefore we make A Lifetime Promise to every dog we rescue: “You will never live in a shelter or go hungry or live without love.” We also make a promise to YOU: As long as there are dogs to rescue and protect, we will continue our work. We thank you for helping us fulfill these missions.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for always being there for our dogs, trusting us, and supporting our work. We are forever grateful and blessed.
