Donation Time

Adopting a rescue dog with emotional issues (fear, anxiety, etc) can be more than challenging.  Puppy mill survivors, dogs from hoarding situations, and those that have suffered abuse need a lot of patience and dedication.  Some dogs get adopted, and then are returned because of their behavioral issues, which only adds to their emotional baggage. Last year I learned of an organization that was founded by Cheryl Gfrerer after she fostered a dog that had been burned by a shock collar. Spencer Group offers behavior education and training with certified trainers to rescue groups on a scholarship basis, to improve a dog’s adoptability and chances of finding a forever home.  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Cheryl, and visiting with her a couple of times. Her love and compassion for rescues is commendable. We can all make a difference in this world if we choose to.  Cheryl and Spencer Group saw a need and are doing just that. I am thrilled to announce that we are making a donation to Spencer Group! Please show them some love by liking and following them on Facebook –  Also one of their biggest fundraisers is making and selling snuffle mats.  These mats are a great enrichment activity for dogs. If you don’t already have one, get one – your dog will thank you.
