BENEFITING: Ranch Dog Rescue
Can you help us realize our dreams of growing our rescue? We have found the most perfect 5 acre property that we would love to make the new home of Ranch Dog Rescue. The property is completely fenced and fully equipped to accommodate a large breed dog rescue operation. It is perfect in every way, and I would love to watch our rescue mission grow exponentially on this property. My husband and I are prepared to sell our family home to purchase this property for RDR; but even in doing so we fall short of the down payment needed to acquire the property. We give our heart and soul day in and day out for the RDR dogs, and having 5 beautiful acres devoted to the dogs and other rescue animals would be a dream come true. It would mean a decompression area for dogs who were just saved from the shelter, larger areas to temperament test and train dogs, and most importantly room for the dogs to just be dogs! We would also like to operate a very small scale dog boarding operation to continue to off set the costs of running a rescue. 100% of all profits from this boarding operation (I envision calling it Ranch Dog Retreat) will go back to Ranch Dog Rescue. So what do we need from you? I'm swallowing my pride, and asking for donations. We have over 13 thousand followers on our RDR page - if everyone donated $2, we would nearly meet our goal of the needed downpayment for this facility. I've always been told to dream big, and I am. We've met a few obstacles so far, and we have tried to make this dream a reality without asking for donations - but I'm not sure that we can. So, here we are. If you can envision RDR doing BIG things in SoCal in 2016 and beyond - please help us toward this cause. We are a 501c3 organization and donations are tax deductible. I hope that within a few months I'll be able to organize an open house for all of our wonderful followers and supporters to come visit us at our new ranch. But before I get to party planning, we have to actually acquire the property wink emoticon Any help you all could offer would be so appreciated by the dogs and myself.
