Left: Weims relaxing at a "Rally to Rescue" event
Volunteers have been busy with our many fund raisers, the most amazing being the Weim and Cheese. This was our first ever major fundraising event, and was a tremendous success; we hope to make it a tradition. Check out the fund raisers at our new 'Puppy Pantry' on the web site.
Please say a prayer to the families whose special gray ones have passed over the bridge this year. Every time we receive one of these tearful announcements and the conversation is closed by "who do you have for us to adopt now" you can only marvel at the love and generosity of our MWR families. Each of us as rescuers, and yes whether you are an adopter, a volunteer or a donor you are a rescuer, and should be proud to able to have sent these dogs on knowing they were safe and loved. That is the most any of us can ask for as one of God's creatures.
But rescue is not just about saving dogs. One of the focuses for MWR this past year has been developing community awareness to the plight of all homeless animals and educating the public to the existence of breed rescue groups. MWR volunteers and their dogs participated in several community outreach programs this past year, such as the 'People Pets' and 'Vets and Dog Days of Summer' events. As an extension of our monthly summer open houses, we will now be doing meet and greets through the Pet smart Charities. We have also been invited as one of only 500 rescue groups nationally to be involved in the Rally to Rescue Program.
Thank you for your support of Michigan Weimaraner Rescue Inc.
