ADOPT-A-RESCUE-PET
February 27, 2012

In 2005 I realized that my American Eskimo son (the great, late Handsome Bear Kelly) needed a sibling. I went online and found Adopt A Rescue Pet and made contact. I set up an appt to go see the Eskie dogs for adoption. One of them was an 8-10 yr old female with vision challenges named Gypsy. I knew instantly that she was his new sister! I was so impressed with Heidi Pieper and the love she gave to these dogs blessed enough to be fostered by her and her husband Jay! I also met ARP's founder Elizabeth Davis and helped to raise money for them because I know that this organization is run well. Often times, we donate to a charity never really knowing if the monies are being used properly. I proudly attest to knowing that ARP is a model charity for helping abused and abandonded dogs. If you only have $1 to give, please give it to ARP!

Awareness of how much we can all do to help dogs; even if it's not through a permanent adoption. I.E. Fostering, donating money and/or items that can be sold to raise funds, explaining to others how to not create situations that add to the dogs that are abandoned and/or abused by being responsible pet owners, etc...
