On Sunday night, while the Smith family slept, theor home caught on fire. Luckily, their heroic dog, Chrome woke up Mrs. Smith in time to get herself and two children out of the home safely.
We are devastated by this event but with your help, we can help them! We are so proud of Chrome for saving the Smith family. You see, Chrome was adopted from our shelter, Bastrop County Animal Shelter. Once homeless, he now has a family whom he protected from a house fire! He saved their lives. We created this fundraiser to benefit Chrome and to help the Smith family in their time of need!
Here is what Mrs. Smith said about Chrome:
“...He is without a doubt my hero. In the early hours of Sunday morning, Chrome woke me up. This isn't unusual as he wakes me when he needs to go out. However, that's not what he needed. When I opened my bedroom door, I saw flames on the other side of my house. Chrome woke me up so I could get my two boys, who were closer to the fire, and myself out of the house. Our other dog is elderly and wouldn't have woken me up.
I rescued Chrome but he saved us. You guys do such an awesome job. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for having Chrome at the opening of Tractor Supply in Elgin and allowing me to take him home. We were meant to be.”
