When Harley passed away in March of 2016 it was our dream to not only work to end puppy mills, but to also continue helping senior dogs. With our puppy mill awareness programs (awareness, education and advocacy) firmly in place, we then launched our 4th program, “Harley’s House of Hope.”
Senior dogs in need have always tugged at our hearts and the “Harley’s House of Hope” program enables Harley’s Dream to rescue, provide the necessary medical care for, and rehome one senior dog at a time – though at times we’ve had as many as three! Most of these dogs were scheduled to be euthanized until we rescued them.
To make this program possible, we created a designated fund specifically for saving senior dogs. Your support is needed to assure every dog we rescue gets the best care possible. A donation can be made by clicking this link. Thank you for helping make a difference!
As you might imagine, medical care is our largest expense. Old dogs that end up in shelters typically come from backyard breeders, puppy mills or very negligent, uncaring owners. It’s not uncommon for a dog to have heart problems, severe dental disease, or structural issues that cause constant pain. We work with an excellent medical team that will do everything necessary to make sure the dog is comfortable and as healthy as possible. The costs to help one dog will vary but typically range from $1,000 to $3,000. With your support, we can continue making a difference for one senior dog at a time through Harley’s House of Hope.
“Saving one dog will not save the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
