Seven Danes and one long day...

Today GDRNT took into our program SEVEN Danes! So since Friday our ranks have grown by NINE.... All pulled from kill shelters. There was not a hoarding or seizure.... Just nine Danes sitting on death row of shelters desperate to reduce ranks so none have to die. To say that it takes a village is an understatement. It takes an army. Today alone there were countless hours spent coordinating transports, foster homes and veterinary space. Hours and miles spent in personal vehicles to get these danes to the vet and the shuffling of households to get ready for another foster. In the week to come there will be nine more vet bills for alters, vaccinations and anything else required. We are an all volunteer army, all of us have "real jobs" earning paychecks and raising families. Yet a few dozen volunteers were willing to put it all on hold to save the life of Danes. To those of you who helped or offered to help a huge THANK YOU... To our intake team... WOW! And may you actually get a well deserved break!
