A few of the REDCOLLAR RESCUE adoptables and alums just wanted to stop by to give the RCR supporters a personal thanks for all that you have done during this year to help start their journey toward their forever homes. Even though the end of the year is nearing, there's still time to save even more lives! Our Sit, Stay, Support fundraiser is in full swing and gives you a chance to win a BMW bike, a $500 Visa gift card, or a $250 PetSmart gift card just by making a tax-deductible donation. (And remember that our supporter base is smaller than huge organizations, so your odds of winning are actually quite substantial!). And don't forget - if you haven't already submitted proof of your prior donations to your employer, be sure to do so before year end - most employers have Matching Gifts program and will match or even double your donation to RCR! You can also send gifts directly to our adoptables through our Amazon wishlist -- our biggest needs right now are Frontline flea prevention and 36" collapsible crates. Finally, be sure to bookmark and shop Amazon Smile for your last minute gift purchases --  our adoptables will get a percentage of your purchase donated to them!

Thank you for your support of REDCOLLAR RESCUE this year. We'll be giving you an end-of-year update on our biggest rescue tails soon. Your support goes 100% to the rescue and care of our adoptables and allows us to fulfill our belief that every pet deserves a safe and loving forever home.

It's holiday time again and the kennels and clinics who care for our dogs in boarding will be full! RCR must move our dogs out of boarding to accommodate clients who pay full-price, non-rescue rates. If you will be in town over the Christmas and New Year's holidays, we would be so grateful if you would consider fostering one of our adoptables who is currently in boarding - it's only temporary! Email us to learn more!
RCR Dottie

"My apartment is too small for that big dog!" This is a phrase that we hear all the time. Big dogs are typically associated with needing large spaces to run and play. But if you live in an apartment, you can still rescue big. Not all larger dogs need a country ranch to be content! The truth is that ALL dogs need adequate exercise and attention, no matter their size, but like most humans, dogs don't tend to get that exercise inside the house or even in a backyard. The most important factors for owning a dog in an apartment are to consider the energy level of each individual dog and to be honest about your commitment level to external exercise. Dogs benefit from the structure of walks no matter what their home environment is and many larger breed mixes are classic "couch potato" buddies. So go ahead, think big!
Happy Tails!

November was truly a month to be thankful for RCR and the 15 happy tails who enjoyed all the fixin's of their new forever homes! See the pumpkin-pie smiles of the newest RCR Alums and their forever families by scrolling to the bottom of our Happy Tails Album. This month, celebrate the seasons of giving by becoming a foster or forever home for one of our adoptables. When you foster or adopt, you change two lives - that of your new furry kid or foster and another precious pup that is able to pulled from a shelter and placed in the open foster or boarding spot! Now that's goodwill to all!

The need for foster homes never goes away - each foster home directly translates to another life that can be saved. If you've ever thought about fostering but have questions about the process, please check out the FAQs on our foster page. Our foster coordinator is ready to answer any other questions you may have, so email us if you are ready to provide a temporary home for a very deserving dog! If you can't foster, please consider a recurring donation to help sponsor a dog in boarding. Boarding costs $300-400 monthly per dog, so every dollar helps save another life!
