Holiday Message from Anna and Rich
Hello, and Happy Fall!
We hope your summer was filled with lots of good times and happy memories. Redding remained dry as with most of CA, but now we are receiving some much needed rain. Unfortunately, the "kids" are not too happy with this water coming out of the sky, and it makes their walks quite a challenge. We hope they will have to get used to it since we so badly need the rain.
Thanksgiving is almost here, and as with years gone by, we have much to be thankful for. We are grateful to all of you for your continued support. Some of you have been with us since the beginning about 15 years ago. Others are new to our "family". All of you help us to make a difference to the dogs who need us so badly. The thing that we are most appreciative of is our adopters who open their hearts and homes to one or more of our orphans. You all are the reason we are able to continue to save these wonderful Pei. There are times Rich and I feel so bad for some of our "kids" who are continually overlooked when it comes to being adopted. This year two of those dogs were placed in homes and are doing well. Poor Molly looked like she had been nearly bred to death, but her new family in Oklahoma saw beyond her physical looks and accepted her into their home. Milly was with us for about two years before her special family found her. Now she is living the good life in Montana in a loving home where her biggest challenge will be dealing with the snow. These are the happy endings that keep us going and help to reinforce that what we do does make a difference.
If you are able to make a year end donation to help our "kids" it would be much appreciated. This rescue is totally dependent on your generosity to be able to continue to take in new dogs and meet their needs. All donations are tax deductible, and can be made by check or donating through Paypal. If you are going to be doing any online shopping with Amazon, you can help out by using AmazonSmile that will donate a portion of your purchase back to us. Please use this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-2938414. Very soon we will be announcing another fundraiser just in time for the holidays. We will provide more details in a few days.
We hope you all enjoy and safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Anna and Rich
