Back In the Groove

Fall is fast approaching–even though the weather has been hot and humid, the colors here on the Brigg’s farm are changing. The lush green colors are gone, to be replaced with faded green, yellow and brown.
Autumn or Fall–as I call ii is my favorite time of the year. It is also a time that we use to prepare for the upcoming cold and snowy season that follows.
What does that have to do with a dog rescue? Getting our numbers down before winter is something we always dream about and this year, we are hoping that it really happens. Having a rescue, here on the farm, means that we have to live “rescue and dogs”–24/7.
Recently we read an article about a shelter housing over 60 dogs—with 30 volunteers. How blessed they are, to have all that help! We have close to 60 and sometimes more. There are only 3 of us running the rescue.

As the days and evening cool down, we need to get back in the groove, and accomplish some items we placed on hold during this long, hot summer. Painting the kennel office walls, floor, and storage building, are just a few of the items Chuck has for us to accomplish, before winter is upon us. Then there is the daily cleaning of the kennels and one on one care of the doggies here.
Back in the groove, may be a sixties comment to some people, but to us it means—lots of hard work—with the special dogs that we have been given to care for. Want to volunteer to help out this fall? Just give us a call, or email us. We are also on Facebook and have our own website, 12hillsdogrescue.org.
