FoundDog Day

Charlie is approximately 65 pound mix that is about 5 years old. She was abandoned at Bark & Purr, but we don’t understand why since she is nothing but sweetness. Charlie is easy-going girl, loves people, and is good with other dogs. She loves to play fetch and is a total goofball. She also knows how to sit on command – if you know Spanish.

 

Instead of celebrating GroundHog Day, Highland Park Village is celebrating FoundDog Day! There are so many dogs in need of a good home and on February 2nd you have the opportunity to take a home a new addition to your family. Please join us and help support FoundDog Day.

We hope you can join us with DFW Furgotten Friends and Angie’s Friends. We are excited to give all of these dogs forever homes at this upcoming event at Highland Park Village. We are so grateful to the amazing volunteers who save these dogs lives each and every day. Be sure to check out the local animal rescue and education group EARS too.

She spends the majority of every day going house to house to feed, water, medicate, provide shelter for, and pat the heads of dogs that have extremely low quality of life, living on short chains in neglectful and abusive situations, never feeling wanted. Angie cares for stray and abandoned animals, getting them vet care and finding them loving homes. In addition, she helps many low-income families care for their animals, promoting spay/neuter, financially assisting with preventative and emergency veterinary care, and sometimes simply providing food to families who are struggling to feed their pets. A true advocate for animals, Angie is down in the trenches every day.
