BRRR, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE! There is an old saying that says, “Cold Feet, Warm Hearts.” That describes the month of February for the rescue. 12 Hills Dog Rescue is thankful for the donations of dog food, supplies and monetary donations that we received this month. The winter months are always tough on everyone, dogs and people alike and knowing there are people out there with BIG HEARTS helps us keep going. A special thanks to Kyle who helped out with our Amazon list!

So. thanks for caring and for sharing with the doggies here at the rescue!

Down on the Farm Rescue. . .

A new year—new goals and a new camera. I was ready to go. First the camera disk wouldn’t install on our computer. Then it wouldn’t finish on the laptop. Well, I improvised and there I was taking pictures of the doggies in MUD. Yes, when your dog rescue is on a farm, you just know that when the snow melts, or it rains, there is mud EVERYWHERE! We hope that doesn’t turn people away from 12 Hills Dog Rescue. Having a rescue on the farm is unique, sometimes challenging, but in the end we think it works fine.
When the days are warmer and the grass is green the farm is beautiful. We have been told by several families that it is like a doggy resort at our rescue. Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but the dogs do have fun as they run and frolic in the pasture while Chuck watches over them in his little cabin. Yes, we do things a little differently than some rescues, but we are all after the same common goal. To save those abandoned, lost and neglected dogs and find them loving forever families. That reminds me–we have met some awesome people who have adopted our dogs, and those who work in the field of rescue. They have been so good to us and we finally took their advice and filed for our 501c3 non-profit status. Not sure if or when it will be approved, but cross your fingers, say a little prayer and we are hoping it won’t take long.
So, here are some of the dogs that need adopted. Some are a little muddy, remember where we live?
