Update on Holly Bear & friends

Thank you everyone for your generous donations towards Transport #88, which is officially on its way to our rescues in the Northeast! :) All dogs were fully sponsored except for Holly Bear, who unfortunately tested positive for heartworm and was unable to travel today anyway.

Even though these dogs are all safe, we did fall short with our fundraising goal for Holly Bear by $190 and she still has previous vet bills to pay (not even including the additional $300-400 we will need to treat her heartworm later this month). If you have just a few bucks to spare, please consider helping us help sweet Holly Bear. We are a small nonprofit, run by a handful of volunteers, and it's a struggle every month to fund these rescue transports, let alone cover additional unexpected medical expenses. We committed to Holly Bear and we are determined to provide her with all the care that she needs and deserves.

Thank you all again for your continued support of our rescue efforts, and your generosity in donating towards all these precious doggies!
