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!

Happy Tails: Twix

February 26, 2011

Twix is loving life with his forever family, The Dillards!

He’s had the best time getting to hang out with his kids,

hearing bedtime stories,

finding quiet places to catch a nap,

and playing in the SNOW!

Thank you, Dillard Family, for giving our sweet little lion man a wonderful new home. 🙂

If you are interested in adopting a pup like Twix, his sister Twizzler is still available for adoption – you can see Twizzler’s photos online here: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/18655190

Happy Tails: KitKat

February 22, 2011

There is nothing better than a happily-ever-after.

Sweet KitKat has had a big weekend – new family, new name (Luzi), new home and lots of new friends!

This lucky Luzi girl now has her own human girl to grow up with.

Something tells me these two are going to be best friends forever.

Thank you Sterling Family for giving sweet Luzi such a wonderful forever home.

Though she has big shoes to fill, we think she’s going to be a wonderful addition to your home!

*     *     *     *    *

If you think KitKat’s pretty cute you should check out her sister, Twizzler, who is still in rescue and looking for her forever home. Twizzler’s photos can be seen on our Petfinder site at www.bonniebluerescue.petfinder.com

Happy Tails: Reese

February 19, 2011

Sweet Reese

(who is going to be totally spoiled rotten)

Thank you all for giving him such a wonderful forever home.

He is one lucky pup!
