home where they will stay dry, warm and clean.
We have lots of great
things planned. Our "haunted" barn will be open for you and your friends

VERY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE
"HEALING HEARTS - CRITICAL CARE TEAM" OF
Join a team of caring individuals
supporting the extraordinary efforts of Pets with Disabilities.
This logo will
be displayed next to each dog that uses these funds – “critical
care” – unexpected expenses – life saving medical attention.
All of our dogs at Pets
with Disabilities are disabled. They are the dogs that are overlooked because of “the defect”
people see on the outside - people typically aren't willing to take the
time to see the wagging tail of the deaf dog chasing the ball across the
yard, or the blind dog going up a flight of stairs to get the treat or
hug they know is waiting for them, or the 3 legged dog run like the wind
with their friends in the joy of living.
We have several fund raisers every year to support our rescue
efforts. We anticipate each dog coming into the rescue program will
require $1000-$1500 in “typical” medical needs – and our fundraisers
help us cover those costs. Once a dog is accepted at PWD,
make a COMMITMENT to that dog
- whatever it takes, for however long they need. We can see the obvious
external needs of a dog, but until they get to our vetting team, we
really don't know what the real medical implications will be to help a
dog become as healthy as they can be. The
“Healing Hearts – Critical Care Team”
is necessary to provide on-going, available funds to cover the
extraordinary cases we encounter.
For example, in one 3 week period - those needs were
generating well over $10,000 in medical bills. This is our commitment to the dogs that find their way to PWD -
the commitment of our hearts, our time, our energy, our sleepless nights
of worry, and money! We can make that commitment because it's the right
thing to do , but it also takes a lot of time and effort away from the
daily needs of the rescue and other dogs to do the additional fund
raising to cover these costs.
regular monthly gifts provide a consistent, reliable income stream
that allows us to spend less time fundraising—and more time saving
lives. Becoming a member of the PWD CCT is an easy, efficient and
tax-deductible way to fight neglect and make a difference for disabled
dogs all year long.
Please help us continue to be a voice for the unbroken spirit of the
They truly give us a chance to witness miracles of spirit -
we can only accomplish this with your support.
