Can you give a guy a leg up? The pictured dogs are all being held captive in crates at our vet's office. They're safe. They're well fed. They're bored. All are around two years old. Can you imagine what it's like to be a youngster and not able to run and play? Freddie and Felix happen to be being treated for heartworm. It sounds intimidating, but it's not. We'll coach you on what they need (which is basically being kept fairly quiet and another trip to the vet (ours). Henry is healthy and happy. And bored. You can make a difference in their lives. Please consider fostering one of these boys. It'll be worthwhile - and you'll become part of the solution. If you can foster (or adopt), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edit: Diego has been adopted! YIPPEE!
We will be hosting an adoption event on Saturday, February 25 at the Gambrills Petco (1412 S. Main Chapel Way, Gambrills) from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. We've had a series of really successful adoption events lately. We'd love to keep the streak alive! If you can bring your foster dog, please do. Let Betsy know by noon on Thursday (2/23) if you can bring your foster (email@example.com). The more dogs we place in forever homes, the more we can rescue from the shelters.
We were absolutely touched and delighted to have received an unsolicited donation from Pearls for Pups! This is an organization that makes and sells jewelry and donates the proceeds to worthy rescues. Their generous donation just showed up in our PayPal account one day! We thought you might want to support this wonderful organization. You can visit their website at http://www.pearlsforpups.com/ or their Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/pearlsforpupss/
It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of the unofficial mascot of BRSM. His best friend Alex wrote the obituary posted below. Munchkin was found nearly frozen to death in a snowbank in 2010. His rescuer took him in and nursed him back to health at which point she turned his care over to us. Alex loved him at first sight. Unfortunately, he lived in an apartment with a "no pets allowed" policy and it took several months before rules could be bent and Alex received clearance from the powers-that-be to adopt this tiny beagle with the wayward tongue. Until that time, he visited Munchkin at every single adoption event. From the day he came home, Munchkin never wanted for a thing. He had a wardrobe to envy and a Hollywood style social life. Munchie attended movie openings, outdoor restaurant socials, and rescue adoption events and raised thousands of dollars over his lifetime for other dogs in need, but most particularly for BRSM dogs. We mourn his passing with Alex and extend our gratitude to Alex's tireless efforts in promoting the rescue, but mostly for giving Munchkin the life that we wish all dogs - complete, unconditional love and acceptance. Munchkin's final accolade came on January 3, 2017. He was named "Cutest Dog." by the Washingtonian. We knew it all along.
Alex asks that in lieu of Milk Bones, donations be made in Munchkin's name to Beagle Rscue of Southern Maryland. Checks can be made out to BRSM and mailed to PO Box 983, Waldorf, MD or payment via PayPal from any Donate button on our webpage. Please make sure you note on your donagion it's in memory of Munchkin so that we can send you thank you acknowledgement. There is space for a message under the donation. Condolences may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted on Munchkin's Fan Page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MunchkinsFanPage/
