Hi Jean Robb here. This story comes to me from Lori Turner.
Our inspiration was Ladybug - our rescue dog who changed our lives. Ladybug was 10 years old when we adopted her and 14 when she crossed the rainbow bridge in January 2009.Ladybug had many medical conditions and we were fortunate enough to afford her prescription food, medications and regular vet visits. After we lost Ladybug we donated her prescription food and pills to the vet to help others who could not afford them. To honor her we wanted to sponsor another dog who had similar needs but was at risk of being surrendered due to financial
limitations. After much research we could not find an organization that prevented dogs from being surrendered. And Fairy DogParents was born- March 2009. We help save dogs from being surrendered by keeping families together- you can help too!
|Since 2009, Marlo Manning's group has helped nearly 400 dogs stay with their families.|
