Juanita and I adopted Scully, our German Shepherd, from Westside in May 2012. Scully was fortunate to find our family who adopted and loves him, but there are many other German Shepherds still waiting for their new forever homes. In the interim Westside saves these dogs from shelters who would otherwise put them to down, takes them in, tends to any needed medical issues or conditions, feeds, loves, and finds new homes for these wonderful animals. Westside is a non-profit, so is dependent on contributions to help these dogs.
Juanita and I also began long distance running in August of 2012. Juanita was training for her first half marathon and I started running along with her to keep her company. Before I knew it, I was also hooked on the sport, and we have completed 3 full marathons (LA, Anchorage, Honolulu), in addition to 7 half marathons in the 2014 calendar year.
We are running our second LA marathon in March 2015, and are using this opportunity blend our love of running and our German Shepherd to give back and Run for Westside. I am raising money to aide them with their wonderful cause of saving and placing German Shepherds in loving homes.
Thank you in advance for your consideration in donating to my fund rasing effort, and better yet possibly considering adoption of a Shepherd from Westside, if you are looking for a beautiful companion that will bless and change your life!
