One of the animal rescue groups that the money from this fundraiser will go to is the BC Poodle and Small Dog Rescue. This group is based in Victoria, B.C. not only rescues dogs locally, but they also work with rescue groups in Los Angeles that save dogs from the shelters that have a high kill rate. The group then cares for and finds foster homes until they can adopt out the dogs to their forever homes.
Funds raised for this group will go mainly towards vet bills and travel expenses.
One story that illustrates the help we can provide by raising money for this rescue group is the story of Gertie. Gertie is 9 year old, 5lb toy poodle who is a local rescue. Her teeth were in such bad shape that her gums bled constantly, and she had great difficulty eating. She desperately needed vet care and dental surgery.
If the BC Poodle and Small Dog Rescue hadn't taken Gertie in and to the vet for dental work, she would have quite probably died from her ailment. Fortunately for Gertie, her two sessions of dental surgery were successful and she did not lose all of her teeth as originally thought. She is now up for adoption at the rescue.
If you are planning on attending the fundraising event at Karmavore and haven't already heard, the event has been changed to Sunday, January 23d.
