168 (& welcome 2012!)

January 11, 2012

With the help of our shelter-rescue partners, short-term fosters, long-term fosters, transporters, crossposters, supporters and friends ….

2011 was an absolutely awesome year for Bonnie Blue Rescue!

But before I share our AWESOME NEWS with you …. let’s take a look back!

In 2009, Bonnie Blue Rescue had 5 foster homes and rescued 52 dogs.

In 2010, Bonnie Blue Rescue had 14 foster homes and rescued 93 dogs.

And 2011? 2011 was an even more amazing year than that!

In 2011, Bonnie Blue Rescue utilized 32 foster homes and rescued 168 dogs!

Even cooler than that? Of those 168, 36 were special needs pups –

5 came from a cruelty case in Mobile, AL

6 required major surgery while in the care of Bonnie Blue Rescue

22 were heartworm positive & went through heartworm treatment

15 were super seniors.

GO TEAM!

I am so very proud to be a part of the Bonnie Blue Rescue crew. I am proud to be a part of an organization who helps all pups regardless of breed, age, disability or special needs status. Who goes above and beyond to save the pups that other rescues walk away from, or ignore. And I am so, so proud of the incredible volunteers who work tirelessly to continue to support our small organization with your volunteer hours, crossposting help, networking assistance, donations, love and support.

From the bottom of my heart — THANK YOU —¬†rescue would not be possible without you.

We cannot wait to see what is in store for 2012!

 

Considering fostering? Join us in 2012. The more fosters we have, the more pups we can save!

***UPDATE: Sadly, Duke’s owner has decided not to turn Duke over to rescue. We are heartbroken to not be able to help this sweet boy, but are sending him all of our best wishes***

Meet Duke!

Sweet Duke is a one and a half year old Great Dane guy who is 105 lbs of *true love*!

Duke is an owner turned over to rescue due to a family illness.

This guy is ready for a home and a forever family of his own.
