If you’ve ever lived with a dog or cat or any pet, you know that blissful feeling of getting home after a stressful day at the office and being greeted by your floof purring loudly or wagging their tail so enthusiastically that their entire body is just along for the ride. Is there really anything better than coming home to your fur kid who’s been waiting for your return all day, and wants to show you nothing but love? I don’t think so!

Go the Distance to Keep Families Together by Saving Pets' Lives!

Have you ever heard of the David Goggins 4 X 4 X 48 Fitness Challenge? The goal is to run or walk 4 MILES every 4 HOURS for 48 HOURS straight! Yep, day and night. Starting NOW through March 7th, WE CHALLENGE YOU to make this winter fun! Which option will you choose to go the distance for sick pets and the families who love them?

 

In Memory of Cheick


"I was desperate when I couldn't afford the emergency medical care Cheick needed to survive. Ellie's Rainy Day Fund came to the rescue and gave us more time together. Although Cheick is no longer with us, I will be doing this challenge with my dogs Jordie and Sirius. My goal is to raise at least $750 for Ellie's Rainy Day Fund to keep Cheick's memory alive through the families that have yet to be helped.”
