EVENT DATE Aug 28, 2016

THE STORY:

*** THANK YOU- our hope is to keep this amazingness  going - can we get to $2500?!!  !***

We have signed up for The Race to the Top of Vermont, which for those of you who don't know, is tough 4.3 mile course up Mt Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak .  I mean running ( or trying to !) up a mountain isn't so bad if in the end it can help a rescue dog, right?

Rescue is something I kind of fell into- As many of you know I REALLY wanted to get a  dog- buuuuuut Justin didn't quite agree with that. And so, to get my "dog fix", I ended up volunteering at our local rescue , walking and bringing the dogs on hikes with me. I quickly realized I wanted to do MORE.. and so after some convincing...Justin agreed to fostering with me ( it was actually pretty easy). I have laughed, I have cried, I have considered trading Justin in for the fosters he wouldn't agree to keep,  I have definitely learned a lot but most of all I can't imagine my life NOT being a part of rescue anymore.....

Louise has been involved with dog rescue since 1996.  Her first rescue dog was her "heart dog".  Dice was a 10 month old dalmation, who had been in 4 homes before he finally found Louise.  Dice taught her that all dogs with a rough start can lead happy, healthy lives through consistent and positive training, excercise and patience.  Over the years she has been owned and loved by many different dogs, all which have taught her many different things about herself, and dog behavior.  Louise now lives with 4 rescue dogs- Mogli, Gauge, Isa and most recently her big goofy dog, Rascal- her "foster fail" from Passion 4 Paws!  

 Louise and I met volunteering with Passion4Paws- with our love for rescue dogs, hiking and good, local beer- what else were we to do but become good friends?! We both now  serve on the Board of Directors for Passion 4 Paws-we both feel it is  a privelege to work along side our fearless leader and founder, Robin Shover as well as the rest of our dedicated team.

All money raised will go directly to saving dogs. 9,500- this is the number of dogs per DAY that are put to death - Passion4Paws pulls dogs out of these high kill shelters ( primarily in the south), and finds them safe loving homes. Thus far over 400 dogs have been placed into safe, loving homes- all backed by volunteer work and donations. 

Over the next 2 months we will be going up as many mountains as we can fit in advocating for the voiceless & promoting awareness for these pups that have stories to tell - blending two of our favorite things- hiking and rescue.

Even a small donation is VERY much appreciated! THANK YOU!

" You can't buy love, but you can rescue it"
