THE STORY:

This fundraiser has been extended through all eternity. Thank you for opening your hearts (and wallets!) to help rescue dogs deemed "unadoptable" by other organizations due to age or special needs.

**********

FEBRUARY 15TH:  My UnBIRTHDAY!!!!!  YAY!!!!

Hello. My name is Bella, and I am a rescue dog. You may have heard previously that rescues make the best pets, and it's true! My owner, Michelle, wholeheartedly seconds that emotion!

I picked Michelle as my owner 4.5 years ago at a fundraiser for Mingus Manor, an animal sanctuary dedicated to providing care for Senior and Special Needs pets. It's a long story as to why I was there. I was rescued off the mean streets of Yuma, Arizona. 

Anywho....

At one point, I didn't know if I'd ever live to see another birthday. I am one lucky girl! (Although Michelle says she is the lucky one.)

In honor and support of the place that brought us together, I would like to give up my birthday for Mingus Manor this year.

Listen, I have more bully sticks and squeak toys than I can handle! In lieu of gifts, I respectfully invite you to open your hearts and offer what you can to assist my fellow canines (and feline friends!) who are in need of special care.  Donations welcome through the end of February.  Thank you for your support.
