A key ingredient for a non-profit is a volunteer. They are truly priceless.
And sometimes you hit the mother-lode….we did.
The Richardson-Rexwinkle division of PAAS provides unparalleled care for momma dogs “fixin” to have a litter – and for new mommas who need a place to take care of their babies.
It started in 2015 with Miss Ruby…she came from the Vinita pound….we weren’t even open yet.
Vicki and Tom said “no problem” we’ll take her home.
And the rest is history.
I cannot tell you how many momma dogs and puppies got the best start in life because of Tom, Vicki, Candy, and Sarah.
In fact, Pete just joined the group as a foster Dad.
Vicki and Candy are good recruiters as well.
They willingly turn one or more rooms of their homes into “birthing” centers.
They’ve had two or more mommas at one time and 20++++ puppies.
That’s lots of newspaper – – lots of cleaning – – and oh so much cuteness.
They also know that even though it’s tough to say goodbye to the bundles of joy – – – there’s always another mother (or two) waiting in line.
Yes, we guard our volunteer birthing centers.
No…they can’t take every pregnant momma dog in the area.
Could we use more birthing homes – – of course.
You can never, ever, have too many foster homes for homeless pets in this area.
If you’ve wondered how you can make a difference…..and love puppies and kittens….give us a call at (918) 256-7227 as there are a few requirements.
The most important will be an interview with Vicki and Candy.
Give it some thought….call if you’re interested.
If you don’t live near us….find a rescue in your area that needs volunteers.
We’re all in this together. And……Thanks!
Tom, Vicki, Candy, Sarah, and Pete!
Like all rescues, we are a 501©3 organization.
