Our next adoption event will be held on March 25 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at Mutt Mart in Baltimore. We're all very excited over this new rescue friendly shop in Hamilton (2904 Hamilton Ave, Baltimore, MD 21214). They are earning for themselves a great reputation as the place to be for pet supplies and a good cup of joe! We do hope you'll join us, whether you are looking to add to your family or you have a BRSM foster dog to show off. (If you're bringing your foster dog, please let Betsy know by noon on March 22.) This is a mom and pop shop, not a big box store and that's a concept we can get behind! Put this event on your calendar!
The pictured dogs below are in desperate need of foster homes. If you can help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com or posted on Munchkin's Fan Page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MunchkinsFanPage/
