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.

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.
