2008 Thanks You!

As a means of appreciation we publicly salute all the people who have helped us through the years.


August 2008: Dr Scherlie, of Northwest Veterinary Specialists of Portland, is an animal opthamologist. He examined Teddy, a young, white-haired, rough-coated collie, looking for a good home, who may have some genetic disorders. His strange and beautiful blue eyes were checked out and Teddy and future guardians have good news: Tedddy's eyes are basically fine. He may be having low night vision but that can be handled with using a leash at night. Good news! Thank you, Dr. Scherlie for your donation of love and time.


Many people have contributed to our work in these last years. We are truly grateful to the following people and many others whose wish to remain anonymous :
