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.
