Fixing what's broken is my passion. One of CPR's first dogs was a transfer from another rescue in Florida because they did not want to spend the money to get his cataracts fixed and without vision, his behavior was a problem. We got those eyes fixed and he went on to a happy life. He was only 5 years old when he came to CPR.
Most of our dogs come in needing procedures and surgeries - everything from a simple spay and dental to setting broken bones or repairing genetic defects. These are wonderful, loving, giving dogs who go on to make fabulous companions once what is broken is mended.
Last year we kicked off Luna's Legacy Medical Fund in a big way with Luna and I doing a wacky but wonderful thing – an obstacle course 5k mud run – the US Canine Biathalon. With over 200 supporters encouraging me with their pledges, Luna and I crossed the finish line and Luna's Legacy Medical Fund received over $11,000 in funds to help needy poodles, poodle mixes and others who had critical need.
CPR is 18 years old this year. In honor of our birthday, I'm asking that all of my supporters from last year will back me again. If all of you donate $18 to see Luna and I once again covered in mud, I will hit my $5,000 goal with a few bucks to spare! If we make more, it'll all go to help our dogs get healthy. New friends, come join the fun. I'd love to see that support number climb even higher.
Kick me over that finish line again! I promise that Luna and I will climb every hill, trudge through every creek and crawl through every mud hole. It is the toughest thing physically we've ever done but if it means the dogs get the care they need, it's worth it.
