A Christmas Message from Dan & Rudi

Dear Friends,

As Christmas draws near – a time of giving – we can’t help but reflect on the past year and all that you have given to us in support of Harley and his Dream.

The lives of so many dogs have been forever changed, both by your helping us share the message to end puppy mills, and your generous gifts that made it possible for us to save the lives of some very special little dogs who almost didn’t get a second chance. In so doing, you are also bringing joy to those adopting them, whose hearts needed mending as much as the dogs’ hearts did.

In this season of giving, we are at a loss as to what to give back to you in return … words seem so insignificant, yet it’s all we have. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us on this incredible journey.

Who knew that a little one-eyed dog would have such a profound impact on so many lives? Thank you for loving Harley and allowing his spirit to live on in your words and actions. We are grateful beyond measure.

Wishing you hope, wonder and joy … and lots of little things, because they are what matter most. Merry Christmas!

Dan, Rudi, and the entire Taylor pack


  1. Rudi and Dan,

    Merry Christmas to both of you and thank you so much for your exceptional work towards helping animals!

    Warmest regards,


  2. You gave us Harley who changed my life and my mill dogs life forever. Thank you for what you do and Merry Christmas to you and all your pack.

  3. Hi Rudi, Dan and the Taylor pack.

    Thank you for your Christmas message.

    I am honored to be part of Harley’s Dream and although I had never met Harley he has become such a huge part of my life and I know that Harley will always be with you.

    He has given me the strength to fight for what is right and to be a voice for those that don’t have one.

    I adopted my little boy, Mumble, from a friend who bought him at a pet store and he is now 12 years old. His little body is not what it should be because of bad, backyard breeding.

    He is comfortable and very happy, but has his moments. Harley helped me so much to stand up and fight for dogs like him but to also fight for Mumble.

    I will endeavor to support Harley’s Dream however I can, as Harley says, until the last cage is empty.

    God bless you for being such beautiful people and giving these dogs a new start to life by rescuing them from their horror lives in the puppy mills.

    Have a lovely, safe and happy Christmas.

  7. We should be thanking you. Your are the people who are putting in all the work, attention, and care. I often feel guilty because it’s so easy to give. You do so very much for the little souls who needs so much. And you were able to listen to Harley and know what needed to be done.
    Merry Christmas to you, Dan and Rudi, your family, and all the fur babies. Thank you for being their voice.

  8. We are so proud to be supporters of Harley’s Dream. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful dedicated group of people. Awareness is reaching so many people in so many places. I truly believe Harley and Fernando are hard at work through you and many other people dedicated to helping put an end to this shameful industry. Many blessings to your family and of course to Harley…a true angel to us all. Merry Christmas 🐶💜🐶💜

  18. Merry Christmas to the Harley’s Dream Family. And wishing you all a very Happy and Healthy 2019.

  19. Happiest of Holidays to The entire Taylor Family, furbabies too!! It all started with a One-eyed Pup named Harley. He stole my heart, his Dream will live on!! ❤️❤️❤️🎄☃️

  20. May the Spirit of Christmas and the Harley’s Spirit continue to live on in your Hearts throughout the Season and the New Year as they are multi-ourosed in blessing yourselves and us with the Inspiration to keep changing the world for millb dogs one rescue at a time.
    God bless your life with Peace and Joy.

  21. You paid me back in full the first time I found Harley on Facebook. You know my story and many others. And for that I will always love and cherish both of you. For many of us Christmas is a tough time, the struggle is real. But like you said, who would have known that a little one eyed little dog could change so many lives.
    Merry Christmas to you all!

  22. Thank you for sharing Harley with us and the work you do. We found out about puppy mills when we first saw Harley’s page on FB. We fell in love with him and his dream. We try to help when we can. Prayer continue for you both and your pack. Merry Christmas

  23. Harley has been such an incredible inspiration to so many and brought much needed attention to the horrific puppy mill industry. You are incredible ambassadors for the voiceless victims for the ongoing abuse happening in so many areas. Wishing you a well deserved joyous holiday season with much love, happiness and health!

  24. Hearing about Harley and what those poor dogs go through in a puppy mill has opened a lot of eyes towards these horrible organizations. I’m always contacting our legislators, here in Iowa, to enlist tougher laws regarding these operations or close them down all together! The ASPCA just rescued around 150 dogs a few weeks ago in Iowa and are finding new forever homes for them. Thank you for all you do and wishing your family the best in 2019!

  25. Merry Christmas to you and your whole family! You are good people!! ❤️🐾🐾🎄

  26. Thank you for all you do 💜
    And I wish you only the best, peace and happiness. Have a blessed Christmas and an awesome 2019.
    All the love from Uschi and her 15 rescued Chihuahua’s and Pugs 💜💜💜👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
    We wish you a merry Christmas all the way from South Africa

  27. and a Very Merry to you & your families (human & canine & feline too!!) Thanks for giving us a place to help

  28. You have so inspired me. I thought I was a good rescuer but you and Harley shined a light on something that gave me a renewed sense of purpose…to educate and to end. Thank you.

  29. Thank you for everything you have done and are doing to help our furbabies. Harley lives on in the hearts of so many. Here in Australia I am passing on his message and fighting as Hard as I can to honour this wonderful boy. Jm
