BENEFITING: THANK DOG RESCUE INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Hi friends! My name is Piper and I am a rescue pup. Not just any rescue pup, but one whose life was saved by an awesome organization called Thank Dog Rescue. You see, I might not have been so lucky if TDR hadn't taken me in. Things were not going well for me. I had been hit by a car and never received medical care. My eyesight was fading and I had a bum hind leg. I even had a bebe lodged in my side. Life hadn't been kind to me...but then something amazing happened. The wonderful volunteers at TDR saw that I was a true gem. They pulled me out of the shelter and found me my very own fur-ever family. Now I get SO much love every day! I got a second chance at life. And there are so many more like me who have gotten second chances, too. That's why I want to help TDR to continue their mission...
Thank Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to finding loving homes for shelter, homeless and abandoned dogs of all breeds. TDR is a small group of volunteers who foster dogs in their homes where they are loved as their own, until a suitable permanent home is found. This way, the pups are allowed to decompress from their former lives. They are socialized and exposed to all kinds of new experiences, and trained in basic commands in preparation for a smooth transition to their adoptive homes.
So one of my humans is running the Gulf Beach Half Marathon in September to benefit TDR. That means she is running 13.1 miles to help me raise money for the group that gave me my second chance. 13.1 miles! I like to run, but I don't like to run that much! Will you help me reach my goal? Every little bit helps! Visit the TDR web page to see all the good stuff my human-friends continue to do to save the lives of my fur-friends! http://thankdogrescue.org/
