A Sincere Apology To Our Donors Who Send Checks,
First, we want to thank you all for supporting this cause that we all hold dear to our hearts. We thank you and the Bichons thank you.
Unfortunately, we thought that one of our volunteers was doing the job of sending out "Thank You" cards to donors who donate by check.
We learned today, Friday, May 2, 2014, that "Thank You Cards" to our donors who have donated by check, have not gone out since Christmas.
I was absolutely mortified when I learned of this.
Steps have been taken to correct this so it does not happen again.
The Board of Trustees wishes to extend our apologies and our thanks to all of our donors, especially donors who send donations by checks.
I am so very sorry this has happened.

Please know you are so very appreciated
and that we thank you so very much.
Sincerely, Robin Pressnall and The Board of Trustees

How We got Started

I want to let those of you who do not know yet, know how we got started back in the Spring of 1998. WOW! How time flies!

At the time, the Co-Founder of Small Paws™ Rescue, Susan Sebring, and I, had first applied to join an existing Bichon rescue organization.

We both got a form letter back, telling us that rescue work took more than just a good heart and that at that time we were deemed to have been not suitable for rescue work. (Yes, that's what the letter really said...)

Though we were discouraged at first, we decided if we couldn't go to the mountain... we would move the mountain to us, and thus Small Paws™ Rescue was born.
