You may have noticed that the tides have turned and our shelter has been brimming with small dogs recently. In fact, shelters throughout the Bay Area have more small dogs than any recent years. At the same time, there are shelters in other parts of the country that amazingly have no small dogs at all. So for the benefit of these homeless wee ones, we are spreading the love in an effort to find them homes for the holidays. For the first time ever, BACS will be transferring small dogs from our shelter to a shelter in another state. On December 9th we will be sending 15 of our small dogs to The Humane Society of Boise Idaho. We will be collaborating with the Alameda Animal Shelter who is also sending 15 small dogs. The dogs will be flown from Livermore thanks to the organization, Wings of Rescue, which helps move dogs across the country to facilitate their adoption.
For this endeavor, we need to raise $600 for the transporation costs. We are also in need of 15 to 30 small dog crates, either wire or plastic. The crates need to be received by Friday, December 6th. They will not be returned so they are a donation to the nationwide effort. We feel the $600 needed is a minimal amount when the payoff of forever homes for so many little dogs is the payoff!
Any amount you donate is so greatly appreciated. No amount is too small as long as it comes from your heart. This holiday season, help us to help these dogs have the best holiday possible!
