We’re not going to “emotionally bait” you with photos and stories of some of our earlier hardship cases . . . the dogs pull at our heartstrings every day because of what they do and who they are . . . they have a love for learning and playing that is unrivaled even in humans. We are simply asking for help by contributing to this campaign.
Support Extraordinary Dogs Inc when you shop or sell on eBay. This is made possible by the eBay for Charity program which has helped eBay buyers and sellers donate hundreds of millions of dollars to thousands of charities (and we’re one of them!)
Please help us with this campaign for MATCHING FUNDS. Our last campaign for dog food did not reach goal, and we had some setbacks with the pallet . . . it took 11 days to get here and several bags had fallen off during transit with most of the dog food emptied. So we had to cut into our reserve which nullified the savings we were expecting. Just another adventure, and we are still grateful for this program and to all the people who support us.
If we are going to make a difference in reducing the mass euthanasia of companion animals (at least 5000 healthy, adoptable dogs are deliberately destroyed every day), it will take more than shuffling dogs through various rescues/homes and extensive spay/neutering programs.
As I trudged through 5 ft. snow drifts (I’m 5 ft 3 inches tall, so I could easily have “disappeared”), my 3 biggest dogs (Brian, Tristan and Merlin) stayed by my side. They seemed to understand the gravity of the situation. More than once I fell and they immediately gathered around me and stood quietly. Any other time they would have engaged in a play/wrestling match with me.
