Giving Challenge 2020 was an exciting 24-hour giving event that began at noon on April 28th.   This was your chance to double your impact because all donations made online through Giving Challenge 2020 were matched by The Patterson Foundation (up to $100).  Your generosity makes it "pawsible" for us to continue to "Rescue, Rehab & Rehome" the dogs who need us the most.  Many of these dogs require hospitalization and major medical procedures such as:  orthopedic surgery to repair broken bones or ruptured tendons, heartworm treatment, cat scans & MRIs, surgery to remove bladder stones, parvo treatment and spinal surgery.  Let's not forget about our "Forever Foster" dogs who have ongoing medical expenses that make adoption more difficult.  These dogs have a very special place in our hearts and still deserve a chance at happiness. We do not want the fear of vet bills to get in their way so we have established our "Forever Foster" program which pays for their ongoing medical care at our primary vet.
