Walk a mile with your dogs to support canine rescue
Rescue gives a safe haven for unwanted and senior dogs
Meade Canine Rescue Foundation will host a fundraiser at Red Cedar Vineyards in Shandon on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 8 a.m. to noon. The cost is $25 per individual or $40 per couple and includes live music by Starling & Wright, refreshments, beverages, Clayhouse wine tasting and raffle prizes after the mile walk. The event will raise money for the senior canine rescue’s veterinary fund. Dave Congalton with KVEC radio will help with the celebration and Teresa Rhyne will be on site signing her New York Times best seller “The Dog Lived (And So Will I).”
The nonprofit organization is located on 12 acres, most of which is dog- and human-friendly, and it includes different areas that the dogs can chose between. The rescue’s ranch is located five miles south of the Loading Chute in Creston. Meade provides medical care, nutrition, exercise and shelter or unwanted special needs and senior dogs of all breeds. The ranch offers a safe haven, where the dogs can spend the rest of their lives surrounded by love and dignity. According to Melora Brooks, the dogs primarily come from high kill shelters in the state where dogs are left because they are elderly, sick or terminally ill.
“For those dogs that are not terminally ill, [Meade] works tirelessly to arrange well-matched forever home adoptions, and for the terminally ill dogs, they will live out the rest of their lives on The Ranch with special care, fresh air and love,” Brooks wrote in an email. “Also, [Meade] works as a community resource, advocating the importance of spay/neuter, adoption of rescue dogs and the joys of senior pets.”
