Raising Junior Rescuers!

Some of our pups got to have an early Christmas thanks to the pawesome Junior Rescuers at Mrs. Seymore's 3rd grade class at Rockwall Elementary! These pawesome kiddos decided as a class project that they would learn more about boxers on LBR's website, discuss strategies for helping them get adopted, AND raise money to help LBR! What amazing kiddos!  The end of their project was last week, and they knew an LBR volunteer was coming to accept their check. But they DIDN'T know that we had arranged to have a few of the dogs they'd been following come by in the furs to meet them. Boy, were those kiddos excited!!

I can't show you pics of the kiddos fur privacy reasons, but here's some of our dogs who were presented all sorts of goodies by the kiddos. Osha was very popular, of course, and she got THREE outfits from the excited kiddos.

Murray got a new bed, a whole big bag of food, toys, and a pawesome camo jacket!

And Momma Shyanne is happy to have a bed of her very own! She also got treats and a new coat. What thoughtful kiddos!! PLUS they gave over $600 they'd raised to LBR! If that's the future of rescue, I know all my LBR cousins are in very good paws.


  1. YAY for the Junior rescuers! It's great that this kids raised such a lot of wonga and I'm sure all this kids will be pawsome adults once... and maybe with more of such kids our world will be a warmer and better place.
