A Place to Bark

When a storm blew open our walk out basement door not so long ago and our fur babies got out we were devastated. The whole experience turned our lives upside down. Although they were taken to the animal shelter - rather than being directly returned to us, we knew they would be well taken care of - and they were. We are forever grateful for the safe keeping they provided to our Max and Gretchen.

There is an independent non-profit that is working very hard to keep unclaimed dogs (and cats) from being put to sleep. I had heard of it before through artist blogs and websites, but didn't connect that it is not too far from where I now live. Please visit the blog of Bernie Berlin to learn more about her mission, A Place to Bark.

If you are in the position to make a donation - no matter the amount - you can do so on the blog or I have a badge on the right side of this blog that you can donate through. Her funding has been cut, along with much of her food supply source. After our recent experience, this is a cause I am proud to support and advocate for. Thanks in advance for any support you can give.

Our pets certainly do become "part of the family" don't they?? So glad to hear that you were able to reclaim them in time!
