Success (no knitting content)

Img_0100 I got word today our humble little tree took a winning bid of $300!!  Woo hoo!  Again, these funds will go directly to New Mexico Canine Rescue and Safeguard, a NO-kill rehabilitation facility for homeless and abused dogs.  Anyone interested in making a donation to this deserving organization may do so as follows:

New Mexico Canine Rescue and Safeguard, P.O. Box 2739, Ranchos de Taos, NM  87557

They are a 501(C)3 corporation and your donations are tax deductible.  If you would, please mention we sent you.  Thanks. 

Please remember that even the smallest donation helps cover food and medical expenses for these poor dogs who, for whatever reason, have gotten a lousy deal in their lives so far...and with our help, will go on to good homes and have the lives they deserve. 

Just this last week I received this in a message from NMCR&S:

Lastly, some "un named" animal activist people brought me a little
emaciated Pit Bull early this week.  He had spent his life chained to
an atv with no shelter, starving right in full view of animal
control, right on a busy road.  He's *never* been fed.  His little
feet are flat and practically boneless from no nutrition when he was
growing up and he looks a little bit crazy right now.  He has scars
on his head and I don't even want to think about that right now after
my experience with Screech. 
(NOTE: Screech was a Pit Bull NMCR&S saved after his owner shot him in the head, after he had tired of abusing the poor dog.) So, the vigilante angels took over and
into New Mexico Canine he came.  He would have frozen to the ground
this week wondering why his humans didn't want him near them and by
the fire; no doubt about it.  It gives me so much joy in my life to
be able to offer refuge to creatures like that.  And, it's because of
people like you that I am able to carry on this work. 

I'm going to end this posting with a picture I took last week of our two dogs, Meika and Behr.  Behr was rescued from a breeding kennel at age 3 and came to us five years ago, short on love but with a heart as big as all outdoors.  Meika was a 7 mo. old "reject" from another breeding kennel (don't let her hear that...she thinks she's a princess).  I can't imagine our lives without these two! --Martie
