Merry Christmas to everyone! Â We wanted to take a moment to thank all of you so much for trusting us with your animals. Â We live for caring for your animals in your absence and we understand how difficult it can be to leave them in someone else’s care. Â We are so grateful to you all for your confidence and support. Â We have worked so hard to make Dublin Creek Kennel a safe, enjoyable and fun place for your animals to be. Â We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This month’s newsletter is dedicated to our rescue animals. Â As you know, Sue and Katherine, owners of Dublin Creek Kennel, founded the Dublin Creek Animal Foundation which takes in and rehomes dogs and cats that are homeless. Â Most of our animals come from overcrowded animal shelters and are at risk of euthanasia. Â We take in so many wonderful animals and are grateful to be able to have a warm, safe, comfortable place for them to await their loving, forever homes.
We need your help!
Running an animal rescue program is very rewarding but it is also a LOT of work. Â All of our rescue animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and treated for any medical conditions that they may have. Â Of course, we also have to transport them from the shelters to us, back and forth to the vet, etc. Â In addition, these animals to be fed, bathed, walked, played with, given toys and trained. Â For this reason, we are desperate for volunteers and donations.
Can you spare some time each week, even just an hour to walk or play with our rescue dogs? Â Some of our rescues have been here for as long as 6 months, through no fault of their own except being a breed or mix of breeds that the shelters are full of. Â This makes it difficult for even very sweet and adorable dogs to find their forever homes. Â For instance, Blitzen, our Rescue of the Month dog, has been here quite a while. Â The only reason is that he is a small, blond, smooth coated mix breed and there are many of them out there. Â These dogs need to be walked and played with daily and we need YOUR help with that. Â Can you commit to coming by each week to walk or play with one or more of our rescues? Â If you are please let us know! Â We are desperate for your help and our rescue dogs really need you. Â You will enjoy spending time with these guys and making a difference in their lives.
In addition to volunteers we also need donations. Â Our veterinary bills add up fast. Â We can always use monetary donations to help us with the cost of saving these animals. Â We can also always use new dog collars, bed, blankets, towel, toys and leashes. Â Feel free to make a donation on our website or drop by with an item for one of our rescues.
Spread the word
Perhaps most importantly, we need you to spread the word about our rescue animals and program. Â When we post a picture on Facebook of one of our rescues, please share it. Â If one of your friends or family members mentions that they want to adopt a cat or dog, tell them about us! Â We have been praised for our speediness in getting back to people interested in adopting and on how we work with potential adopters.

Â She came to us after being trapped and then brought to a shelter. Â While she was being spayed it was determined that she was pregnant. Â So sad, she was a kitten having kittens.
