2018 turned out to be a busy and blessed year for 12 Hills Dog Rescue. We had the most adoptions so far, with 223 dogs getting a second chance with new forever families. Some of the dogs that were adopted were dogs that had been here for some time, so that makes it even better.
So we begin a new year and more opportunities to help the dogs that are appear at the rescue. Our newest challenge is a 5 or 6 month old puppy that was in need of special care. He has been to our Vet, and we have started the process of special nutrition and water therapy. He is a sweetie for sure and we are hoping that he will be able to walk normally after treatments and care. He is doing better every day!
We have several dogs that have arrived that are not little pups, but still young and easily trainable. Riley, Allen and Arnie and are all sweet & handsome boys that will be great family dogs if given the opportunity.
Each new year, we find ourselves setting new goals for the rescue. One of the goals for the rescue this year is to redo the nursery. with new flooring and paint the inside. Along with the new deck and cement pad that was completed last year, we hope to have a healthier and easier viewing place for our puppies.
Our main kennel floor is another project we are hoping to do this year if the funding is available. We plan to have the kennel floor painted with epoxy paint to make it easier to clean and disinfect. That will be a huge project, which entails moving dogs, kennels etc., Definitely a summer project that will require a number of workers and volunteers.
I could go on about more goals for 2019, or I can stop now and breath deeply. I leave you with this. We so appreciate everyone who has adopted a dog from our rescue, or shared about the rescue, volunteered or donated. We never seem to express our gratitude enough! Thank-you for caring about these doggies!
