A Christmas Message from Dan & Rudi

Dear Friend,

Today, we are reflecting on the past year and all that you have given to us in support of Harley’s Dream.

Through your faith in us, your help in sharing the message about puppy mills, and your generous contributions, we’ve been able to impact millions of people. We’ve educated them about the cruel puppy mill industry and encouraged them to adopt their next pet or, at least to purchase responsibly. Every day, the difference we are making becomes more and more evident.

Because of you, our senior dog rescue program “Harley’s House of Dreams” has saved the lives of many very special little dogs who almost didn’t get a second chance. Some of you brought joy by adopting them, mending their hearts, and sometimes even mending your own as well. Nothing is more rewarding!

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. Merry Christmas! Thank you for everything you and your support team do all throughout the year!

  2. Dan and Rudi – Thank you for your kind, thoughtful words! I think of Harley everyday and all the other little dogs that you 2 have rescued. How is little Cricket doing now? I hope she has rallied and that she’s around for a few more Christmases! Give her and the rest of the pack a kiss for me!

  3. Dan and Rudi, thank you for all you do! You both work tirelessly to not only spread the word about puppy mills, but also do SO much to help save dogs from shelters and get them in good homes. I think the fact that some of those more special pups – like Elvis – are given such special and personal attention from the both of you – speaks volumes about what very special people YOU are. Thank you for all you do – and thank you to all those that work behind the scenes to assist you in your mission at Harley’s Dream. I am so grateful that I had the chance to meet and speak with you when you were in Chicago and see first-hand what wonderful and genuine people you are. If you ever make you way back to Chicago, please let me know! Merry Christmas to you and yours! …. Arleen

  4. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ♥️♥️🐾🐾

  6. you have given me so much – mere words cannot express the love and gratitude that I have for #HarleysDream and Harley’s House of Hope – I have found so many strengths that I would not have known if not for Harley and his dream

  7. The Sweet Little One Eyed Dog named Harley made me aware of puppy mills. He was always in my heart and remains there. Being a senior on limited income, I can’t always donate but I do share, educate, post, comment and any thing else I can do. Since first seeing Harley and his mission, I have always hoped in my life time to see the end of puppy mills. Wishing you, Dan and the Fur Babies a very Merry Christmas and the best in the New Year. Maybe 2020 will be our magic year. Can only pray and hope. Thank you both for all the work over the years. God Bless
