Blog the Change: Kindred Canines Dog Rescue

*Ellie waits for a furever home*

Kindred Canines Dog Rescue
is an amazing organization compiled of compassionate, dedicated people. That is why I selected it for my first ever Blog for Change post!

KDRC is a growing, all-breed rescue group located in Modesto, CA, working tirelessly to pull shelter dogs in danger of being euthanized. All KCDR dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped.

And, in addition to rescuing, fostering and placing dogs, KCDR is in the process of establishing a Spay it Forward program to help assist people spay/neuter their dogs.

Why do I adore, admire and applaud Kind Canines Dog Rescue?
Let me count the ways!

KCDR motto: We are dog advocacy, dog rescue, dogmatic.

KCDR mission: To rescue shelter and foreclosure dogs & assist low income families of Stanislaus County to get their dogs spayed/neutered.

*Iggy waits for a forever home*

As stated on their Facebook page: Simply put, we do what we do because the animals need us. Please consider fostering or adopting a dog from Kindred Canines or your local shelter.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Thank you Kindred Canines Dog Rescue for all you do!

Beans - Adopted!

Fi Fi - Adopted!

Blu Seizes the Moment

When I said to Blu last week, seize the moment, I didn't mean it literally. Unfortunately that is exactly what happened. My 12-year old boy had a full on seizure and well, I almost had a heart attack. Talk about scary.

Dr. Matt Miller at Village Vets gave my old guy a thorough exam and ran some tests - thankfully, the results were all considered good. And while we don't know the cause of Blu's seizure, we hope it never happens again!

Here is Blu waiting for his pawsome doc. (We heart him)

And, here is Blu just four days later... with his much younger sister.

Blu clearly bounced back from his seizure quicker than I have.
