LBR rocked the plant stand!!

Wow, guys, I didn't realize I hadn't posted in so long! Momma and I have been really busy. But it's been WORTH it. Yesterday was LBR's biggest fundraiser of the year, Roses for Rescue. LBR volunteers come together to sell roses and other plants donated to us by a Tyler wholesaler. It's a HUGE event, and this year we made....

(drumroll please)

$26,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOHOO!!! LBR ROCKS!


That kind of money means we can save a LOT of boxers! And we get reminders of that all day at Roses, because lots of our alums come by to say hello. This is our Pack Leader, Auntie Sharon, with Moby. Moby was saved by LBR in February of 2012. He had parvo, and his brother was put to sleep at the shelter when he started vomiting blood. LBR volunteers made a mad dash to get him to the ER, and he almost didn't make it. He was there for days, touch and go, and it was hugely expensive. But he pulled through and found himself a pawfect furever home. With the money we raised yesterday, we can keep saving lots of dogs like Moby!
