Thank you for considering our request for funding for the Stickney’s Toy Breed Rescue and Retirement. This rescue group specializes in rehabilitating abused, neglected, and emaciated dogs under 25 pounds. Most of the dogs we receive come from Puppy Mills all over the United States. When we receive the dogs, our objective is to get the dogs cleaned, vaccinated, spayed, neutered, and eventually adopted out to good homes. These animals come to us with a history of abuse by humans and are in definite need of lots of tender, loving care.
We rescued 164 dogs from puppymill in 2010, we placed 110 in homes so far and the rest are awating homes. So far this year we have rescued 102 puppymill dogs , 35 of those have been adopted and the rest await homes.
We need food for the dogs, money for the vets, people who bathe the dogs because they smell so bad, and of course good souls who are willing to adopt these beautiful but often mal-adjusted critters. These dogs are all in very bad shape because of severe neglect. They are not easily adoptable because they have so many health issues due to the abuse in the puppy mills.
We would like to use your donation to support our mission. These funds would allow us to buy high quality dog food and funding towards our vet bills.
