As I sit at the computer this morning, my thoughts go to the new year. Chuck and I always review what we accomplished during the past year and set goals for the new one. I find myself dreaming of the ideal situation that I would like at 12 Hills Dog Rescue. That would be: More funds, more workers (volunteers and paid), more exposure to the outside world with better publicity and photographs. Less time for Chuck, and Nola spent in the day to day upkeep and cleaning of the kennels and just a little more time to relax and enjoy life on the farm, our family, and just maybe another short vacation. Then of course, I think of Brenda, (what would we do without her), she needs more help in the kennels and more time to spend training dogs that have been abused and neglected.
So, we plan on filing for a 501c3 status as soon as possible, and plan to make this our number one priority for 2015. Then we will be off and running, and hopefully our new status will allow us to complete the goals we have for this new year.
Wouldn’t it be nice, if that happened? Wouldn’t it be nice if some of our doggies that have been here for so long finally find good families? What if Peaches and Maggie Mae found their families this year?Then there is Sugar, Iris, Amos and more that need to find their forever families. Now that is a dream, I am holding on to for 2015 and forever!
Peaches 7 + years–she is depressed.
Iris is a great dog!
Amos is Ready to Go
Emerson needs a Family
Max loves the water!
You may have heard the expression—he or she is always on the tail end. Well, we have a number of doggies that are in that same spot. Cracker is the last of Freckle’s litter–Tippy, the last of Mona’s, and Maggie Mae the last of Jerrie’s litter. We also have some adult dogs that are still with us, because they are were the last of their litter to be adopted.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t great dogs, it just means the right person hasn’t met them yet. So, we are hoping you look at some of our “Tail End Doggies” when you are looking on our website on Petfinder.com We have so many dogs right now and we haven’t found one bad dog in the group.
By the way—if you like Boxer’s we have Choco–a purebred male, Chloe a boxer/lab, Chico & Harley, Boxer/Lab/Chow mix, and Lilah, a boxer/Chow. That is the most boxers we have ever had at 12 Hills, and they are all spayed or neutered, had all vaccinations and ready for their new homes. Take a look and give us a call.
They are characters! hoping that they will find their new homes this weekend. They like to play in the Lilies—well they used to be Lilies, anyway. Some are very outgoing and two are a little shy. My granddaughter is holding them for their pictures. She takes a better picture than I do.
What a good mom she is–to her 6 little Lab puppies. We think Snowball is part Lab herself. She is a very sweet gal and has done an amazing job with her little puppies. She works hard to keep the weight on. After all raising 6 puppies is a BIG job for such a petite little gal. Her puppies are eating on their own and we will have a picture soon of their messy faces. They will be ready for new homes in 2 weeks, and then Snowball can concentrate on finding her new forever family.
