Phase 1 of the new facility will not be up and running until August 1st, but the developers say we need to be off the current property by April 1st! We are doing everything we can to provide shelter for the dogs currently in our loving care but we still need foster homes for approximately 85 dogs for 3-4 weeks (or longer, if possible).
I am President of The Little Blue Dog, Inc. a nonprofit focused on humane education for kids here in Palm Beach County. Macy has participated in school visits and in my Reading Buddies program where kids have the chance to read to dogs.
It has been quite awhile since my last email with information on Scout. We adopted him last January from your shelter, and he has grown into such an amazing bug fur baby! He has become a therapy dog for Alzheimer's patients and enjoys going to work with me daily as their "community pet"!
The Everglades have become a notorious dumping ground for dogs and puppies. These poor, helpless animals are literally thrown from cars and spend their days dodging trucks aiming to hit them for sport, hiding from the blazing Florida heat, and hunting small, disease-ridden animals just to survive. They have no protection or salvation. They are afraid and alone. They need a lifeline.

Yesterday, my husband and I hired Canine & Company for 2 1/2 months of obedience training and we're very excited about it. Jesse and Mr. White are very smart and they will benefit greatly from some formal training. They are also very sweet boys and we are lucky to have them in our lives!
She is very very loving and craves the family touch. She will sit or lay down and be pet all day long. So that is what we have been doing. It keeps her calm and she loves it. After what she has been through she deserves no less. So loving.
