Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Help Us Help Rex

Rex is a five-year-old German Shepherd whose owners were discovered shopping for a vet who would euthanize this beautiful dog. He was severely neglected by his owner who would leave him crated for days, often with him wearing both a bark collar and muzzle because his barking "upset the neighbors". When he was finally allowed outside (on a short chain), the neighborhood kids would tease Rex and throw things at him. Pet Rescue took this dog in and boarded him in a private kennel where caring and talented handlers worked with him daily.

Rex recently was granted permanent residence at Pack Ethic, a rehabilitation facility in Upstate New York. There, he continues his rehabilitation and will soon be a full member of the pack. Until it is safe for Rex to interact with the pack, the trainers are requesting a large outdoor kennel for Rex to learn proper behaviors from the existing pack members.

The cost of the kennel is $1,500 and it will be used, not only for Rex, but also for other dogs that may need to learn from the pack!
