We recently went through the worst nightmare in BTN history, with the well being of 4 dogs at stake, Lily, Osso, Ophelia, & Sparkles. Osso was being boarded at a facility that we trusted, and was eventually adopted a few months ago. Shorty after Osso's adoption, 3 other dogs went into boarding at this same facility. Lily, who was returned to us by her adopters, Sparkles, at the request of the facility owner and who agreed to be her foster, and Ophelia who was on her final plea at BARCS, who worked very hard to find rescue for her.

It started with a call from Osso's adopter stating she needed to return him NOW. Then within 24 hours the situation at the boarding facility turned very ugly. Both Osso's adopter and the boarder were putting unrealistic demands on us and almost cost dogs their lives. 

Lily happened to have an approved adopter and was able to go to her new home the same day the others were moved to a different and licensed boarding facility. Although we were given a very difficult time picking Lily up that day, being told it had to be before 11 or we could not get her! Osso, Ophelia, and Sparkles were moved to Faraway Kennels where they are doing fantastic!! But it is costly boarding 3 dogs at the same time, even with the discount Lisa is giving us, which we very much appreciate. Our cost is $70 per day and we really need help raising those funds. Please dig as deep as you possibly can and let's try to raise enough to cover the first two months with this fundraiser. Thank you all!!
