BECOMING A PATRON
Writing is an important part of my personal life (not quite as important as the dogs!) and of our program. If the current life situation for animals, especially companion animals that are destroyed on a daily basis as a means of population control is going to improve, education has to be a critical component.
We currently have two major publications in the works, one on canine nutrition and the other on canine emotional health and intelligence. Because so much of our time is spent with our dogs, we don’t always have the time to get our publications ready . . . we tend to be perfectionists. . . I used to publish an online magazine and it is extremely time-consuming. So we have decided that as each portion becomes ready, we will publish it online piecemeal. Sometimes I think that people prefer to get educated in “small doses.” When the publication is print-ready, we will send a copy to all subscribing patrons/members. A lot of time and research has gone into these projects and we will be using the funds to support the direct care of our resident dogs.
We’re getting ready to publish our first article of canine nutrition. As you well know, there have been recalls, fads, FDA alerts, etc. . . . enough to drive a responsible dog owner crazy. We invite you to become a “Puppy Tier Patron” so that you can have access to this important information. It will be published in two places . . . on our Patreon site for patrons-only and on our website, for members only. The monthly cost for either one is $5 . . . think of this fee as donating a cup of coffee (or a margarita!) Remember that by doing so, you are feeding one of our dogs for a day. We will be adding more tiers after we see how this initial launch goes. Thank you for caring about our awesome dogs!
