The Story

Camp SCR is a safe haven for dogs with serious medical and behavioral issues that need rehabilitation, extra love and care. We have fostered over 100 dogs thus far--from bottle-feeding puppies to weekly rehabilitation therapy for dogs that have been severely abused or injured and require intense healing.  On average there are 8-10 boarders at a time and 15 during the summer months. 
We need your help to raise funds for K9 GRASS for the backyard at Camp SCR.  The current state of the backyard is such that with even the smallest amount of precipitation it is rendered unusable for days (please see video).  It also has many uneven surfaces and dig holes that make it very dangerous for the dogs to run and play. Bodhi, one of our recent tripod fosters often stumbles and falls, because his other front leg is broken and he is so unstable. Another current boarder Carmella, is fresh out of surgery and is at risk of re-injuring if she steps in a hole or looses her balance. Baby Joey, a dog with both of his back paws severed, can't go in the back-yard until he has his prosthetic legs fitted, because he will fall in the holes. Many CAMP SCR dogs are high flight risk and therefore it is imperative that they have a fenced in yard so they may eliminate and have a space to be outdoors.  Having a clean and even surface will make a world of difference to these dogs. 
The total cost of the supplies and labor is $25,000; a great cost to the rescue and we can't do it without your help. As soon as we raise the funds needed for this we will begin to implement the project.  Once this happens many happy photos and videos will follow.
Camp SCR Mission Statement:
Through Love, compassion and caring, CAMP SCR creates a safe, clean sanctuary for rescued dogs to heal and grow physically, mentally and emotionally. From litters of puppies needing bottle feeding to those with special needs , Camp SCR prepares each dog for their furever home.

DAY 5 of CAMP SCR EXCAVATION PROJECT:
Upon today's inspection it appears we need another 8 tons of bluestone! This shows how bad the drainage issue was, due to the 8 tons of roots that were removed underneath it all.
The stone will be spread and compacted down. Bluestone fines will be layered and spread on top and compacted again.
Rudy from @TechGrass LOVES BABY JOEY!
