Happy National Rescue Dog Day! Today is a wonderful day that recognizes rescue dogs and their wonderful new lives!
PetSmart in El Segundo allowed us to use their spacious, stress-free arena to welcome two new DoVE dogs straight from LAX! We were able to unpack their crates in a safe environment and have them run around and meet their new parents. Thank you so much PetSmart for allowing DoVE to be your new rescue partner! Thank you to our incredible volunteer Joe Bahm who reached out to PetSmart and helped form our partnership!
In addition, we have so many people we would like to thank. Our application team vets and places rescue dogs everyday and completely volunteers their time and energy to do so. Our amazing Sean organized and coordinated the details to let DoVE be a part of the HUGE adoption event this past weekend! Our volunteers work tirelessly to go to the airport, attend events, join our volunteer meetings, answer inquiries and upload dogs onto Adoptapet. Our fosters allow our dogs to be comfortable in loving homes instead of a boarding facility. Our adopters give our dogs the most amazing gift- a forever family. Our activists in Korea are working hard everyday to END THE DOG MEAT TRADE IN SOUTH KOREA. Our co-founders Tami and Claudia are hard-working leaders, moms, mentors, and are the most compassionate people in the world.
On this day, we want to look around and thank everyone who supports the DoVE Project. It is not an easy thing to support the end of the dog meat trade. Thank you for advocating, sharing, adopting, fostering, donating and being a part of our DoVE family. We are blessed. Thank you.
