For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to Canine Castaways, Inc. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I’ve included information about Canine Castaways, Inc. below.
In 2003, we weren’t sure if one person could make a difference but we knew that we wanted to see change. So we founded Canine Castaways with the motto “Saving one dog won’t change the world but it will change the world for that dog”. When we rescued a tiny, sick chihuahua puppy who we named Uno our world changed.
Since then we have rescued over 2300 dogs. We know that there is a home out there for every dog we rescue and will wait patiently until it is found. We try very hard to place dogs in their “forever home”; however, there are times that things don’t work out. When we rescue a dog, we are committed to that dog for its entire life and will never hesitate to accept one of our castaways back into our care. Our focus is on quality of care rather than the number of dogs saved.
We are very proud to work closely with our team of veterinarians to ensure each dog rescued receives the best medical care possible. If it’s needed, it’s done! Of course, this does lead to the challenge of constant fundraising but at 16 years old, Uno still reminds us that the extra work is worth it to change the world one dog at a time.
