Dear Holiday Spirits,
All of us here at RezDawg Rescue want to wish each and every one of you the most joyous of holidays!
It has been quite the year, once again, as we have continued our mission to do everything we can for the dogs and cats in need in the Four Corners area. And, while it has not been an easy road, with your kindhearted support, care, compassion, love, and generosity; we quadrupled the number of animals adopted this year over last!
Every time we posted another group of dogs and cats in need, you showed up. You spread the word, you fostered, you adopted, you transported, you prayed, you put together events, and you generously gave financially. Because of you, over 800 animals' lives were spared this year, and hese precious souls are spending the holidays snuggled in a warm bed, with full bellies, and all the love they could ever have dreamed - many for the first time in their lives.
Because of your financial generosity, we were able to take in some of the animals who were suffering with terrible wounds, injuries, and illnesses. These animals needed significant medical care, and because of you, we could give them everything they needed to begin healing. Dogs like Heidi who was found with a collar embedded so deeply into her neck, the infected wound had to be surgically repaired. Jack, who sustained a massive head-injury. And Jaybee - sad, cold, scared, and abandoned on the side of the road - emaciated, and completely hairless. We could not bring dogs like this into RezDawg without your love and support. We simply couldn't do it. But again, because you are who you are, you did not let that happen. And now these dogs, and more like them, are well on their way to recovery and brand new lives.
We feel the need for our continued presence on the reservations of the Four Corners area, has not diminished. We have more work to do. And we are committed to doing it! In the coming year we hope to focus on sponsoring regular spay and neuter clinics (and even finding a proper facility!), re-organizing the rescue from the inside out - making us even more available to our village of supporters - as well as to the animals we bring in, offer you more fun and exciting ways to get involved (we so appreciate how much you want to be involved!), and continue to bring as many animals to brand new lives, as well possibly can!
At times, our list of "needs" can feel overwhelming to us. However, when we take a look at how many of you are there, we find the strength to stay the course. We remember that we are not alone. That we are all in this together...and together, we are making an enormous difference in the lives of so many beautiful animals and the people they touch along the way.
So, we thank you beyond words for your support of RezDawg Rescue this year. YOU are the heart and soul of this rescue. YOU have made every single thing we have done...possible. We look forward to another life-changing year this year. Also know that we would love to hear from you with your ideas, creative sparks, and heart-bursting visions!
In this New Year, may you be happy, may you be well, and may you know peace.
The RezDawg Rescue Team
