Kip & Celidh
Looking for a place to contribute some of your money to before year’s end? Why not write out a check today to Pets for Patriots.

Pets for Patriots provides a second chance for shelter animals by matching them with service members (active and retired) who want to add a member to their families. This organization tugs at my heartstrings in two places: veterans and dogs.

To date, Pets for Patriots has assisted in 62 adoptions, such as this one:

Kip is a member of the Indiana Air National Guard who was devastated at the death of a beloved pet. After a period of mourning, Kip and his wife visited the shelter, where the dog that captured their hearts was terrified of people. She cowered in her kennel and was poorly socialized, but Kip was not deterred.

“We knew right then that this was a dog that needed our love and attention.”

As much as Céilidh needed Kip, he needed her, too. He now says of her, “She lights up my life.”

Lower your tax burden by contributing to this worthy cause today.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Miracle Dog Survived Gas Chamber and Found a Forever Home!

Daniel, a Beagle mix dog that cheated death by surviving the gas chamber in an Alabama dog pound, now has a forever home in N.J. with Joe Dwyer.

Also known as the “Miracle Dog”, Daniel was put in a gas chamber to be euthanized with several other animals last month.  Much to the shelter employees’ surprise, he survived the gassing and emerged relatively unscathed.  Photos and more here.
