A Doggie 4 You
Mission: To promote spay/neuter of pets, rescue dogs from kill facilities or unsafe environments rehabilitate and re-home the dogs to loving homes.
SPECIAL NOTE: A DOGGIE 4 YOU IS NOW THE OFFICIAL NAME OF OUR ORGANIZATION. IT IS NO LONGER A DBA OF 10TH LIFE SURGICAL CENTER. BEAR WITH US UNTIL WE GET OUR NAME CORRECTED IN ALL THE MANY LOCATIONS IT EXISTS.
We are excited to share some great news with our rescue friends. The HAL and CHARLIE PETERSON FOUNDATION recently awarded our rescue a $30,000 grant to assist with the portable buildings for our rescued dogs! With their generous 30K grant we are able to finish the Puppy Building and the Main Dog Rescue Building #1. When finished, we will host an Open House for the public.
We are tremendously grateful to their Board Members for helping make our dreams come true! We wish to thank Brian Oehler, the Hall and Charlie Peterson Foundation's General Manager for taking time to visit our rescue. We enjoyed meeting and showing him how far the rescue has come since purchasing the buildings in late 2018.
Thank you GREATER GOOD and WAHL (pet products)!! As part of ongoing efforts to improve adoption rates through grooming and positive photography
http://www.GreatGood.org assisted Wahl, pet products division, to award 100 in-kind grants of grooming supplies to US shelters and rescues. A DOGGIE 4 YOU was awarded one of product grants consisting of multiple dog brushes and several dog towels to transform our rescued dogs into adoptable beauties. THANK YOU GREATER GOOD & WAHL!
A DOGGIE 4 YOU proudly announces receipt of the 2020 ORVIS ANIMAL CARE GRANT of $1,000! This award purchases a number of items to keep our rescued dogs happy by supplying them with mental and physical enrichment while waiting for their forever homes. Our Enrichment Program has 3 parts: Agility, Music, and Toys.
AGILITY: Agility gets rid of a dog’s excess energy while being a confidence-booster for shy dogs. Running through a course that involves passing over and through a variety of obstacles challenges a dog’s mind and body. Involving our rescued dogs in agility will strengthen their muscles, improve coordination, and keep them fit.
MUSIC: Pamela Fisher, DVM, is a holistic vet and founder of the Rescue Animal Mp3 Project, a nonprofit organization that distributes free music-loaded Mp3 players to animal shelters across the US. She uses music specifically composed to promote relaxation in the animals and their human companions. Dogs show signs of reduced anxiety and anxiety-related behaviors such as barking, scratching, pacing and whining when listening to the music. Aggressive animals have mellowed, traumatized dogs seem less fearful, and storm-phobic dogs are noticeably calmer. Shelter workers have even noticed the animals’ physical improvements in the form of increased appetites and speeded recoveries from injuries and illness.
TOYS: Who doesn’t like to play? Stuffed toy animals, pull toys, toys to fetch, and even a bubble making machine for the dogs to chase and pop bubbles are coming to A Doggie 4 You. There are a few comforting, snuggle-worthy dog dolls with a heartbeat sound to calm dogs experiencing separation anxiety. 10th Life Surgical Center dba A DOGGIE $ YOU wishes to gratefully than the PETFINDER FOUNDATION as well as ORVIS for making this grant possible for our rescued dogs! Happy dogs, happy staff, happy lives abound thanks to Petfinder Foundation. @petfinder foundation.
