Update on our Christmas Rescue!

A message from Barbara Crowther, President, PWDCA Rescue, Inc.

On behalf of the Board of PWDCA Rescue, Inc and from all the volunteers involved, I would like to extend my deep appreciation and gratitude to all those who donated to help with our most recent rescue. We had an intake of 10 dogs who were malnourished, unsocialized and in need of immediate medical care.

Presently, we have been able to give these dogs proper veterinary attention and allow them a chance to heal and recuperate. Each dog was placed in wonderful Foster homes where our rescues are evaluated and assessed for temperament and any special needs in the future. They are all eating well and putting on weight. As always, we are amazed at how quickly these dogs are able to adapt and heal given the proper environment.

All but one of our rescues have been placed in their forever homes already! We have a prospective adoptive family identified for the last PWD when he is ready. PWDCA Rescue always tries to place the dog in an area close to where we do the intake. Our National Rep has been working overtime to ensure that these dogs will live out their lives in homes that will nurture them and afford them the loving care they so richly deserve.

We would like to thank everyone who stepped forward during the holiday season and contributed to our appeal. Please know that through your donations these dogs have now been afforded a wonderful, healthy life in their forever homes. The PWD Community is amazing and has touched our hearts beyond words. It is through all of you that these dogs have been given a second chance. THANK YOU!!
