Fundraiser For Braveheart Dog Rescue

Braveheart Dog Rescue Fundraising Event at the Hastings Country Club, Mn. Everyone Invited! Prepare to Have a Great Time

"I want to personally invite you to a fund raising event for Braveheart Dog Rescue at the Hastings Country Club in Hastings, Mn., on Saturday, March 6th from 7 pm to midnight. We are a non breed specific non profit charity for dogs and all proceeds go to vetting, training and rehoming of our canine pals. We take dogs from all over the country, many with euthanization dates, neuter/spay, vaccinate, train and then find great new homes for their new start in life. Because all dogs live with us on 5 acres we get to know them very well and therefore are able to match the appropriate family/person with the right dog. Thank you -- I look forward to meeting you." -- Brandi Tracy

About Braveheart Rescue Inc.

Braveheart Rescue Inc. is a nonprofit charitable dog rescue that takes in any breed of dog based on the mission “Dogs Come First.” Dogs taken in by the rescue come from all over the United States including Missouri, Georgia, Alabama, New Mexico, Illinois, Iowa and the Dakotas. These dogs may be physically abused, sick, lack socialization--human and canine--, don't know how to walk on a leash and are generally on a list to be euthanized. On average Braveheart Rescue Inc. helps between 100 and 150 dogs annually and has the capacity to kennel and care for about 30 dogs at one time. Recent natural disasters and the current recession have led to an increased number of dumped and abandoned dogs.

Braveheart Rescue’s five-acre compound in Hastings provides housing and exercise facilities as well as medical care and training for dogs that otherwise might be destroyed. Each and every dog is seen by a veterinarian within 2 or 3 days upon arriving at the rescue. They receive the appropriate vaccinations, are heartworm tested and treated for a myriad of physical problems common to dogs that have been living in overcrowded shelters. All the dogs are spayed or neutered upon arrival. Once all the medical issues have been dealt with, the dogs are allowed to have the time to become comfortable in their own fur again. They are free fed, always have fresh and clean water at their disposal, lots of playtime, a warm bed to sleep in and a caring staff and group of volunteers who help them relearn that they are indeed special and deserving of a second chance at life.

Braveheart Rescue Inc. is also active in the community and tries to raise awareness about dog rescue with the general public.

Braveheart Rescue has been successful in finding homes for so many dogs since its inception. And it has made for many happy dog owners. Here's what some families have had to say about their experience adopting a dog from Braveheart Rescue:

"Braveheart Rescue Organization should be the very first stop in the journey of discovery if one is serious about adopting a dog. Much more than a holding pen for dogs waiting to be selected, Braveheart Rescue takes the time to bring the dog back to health, start the process of building trust with humans as well as behavior training if necessary, integrate the dog with other dogs, and teach the animal to enjoy life again through discipline, play and proper diet. As a former volunteer and adopter of two dogs from Braveheart Rescue, it has been my experience that an animal will not be released unless Brandi (Director of "Braveheart Rescue Organization ) is assured that the dog is family ready, in good health and a good match for perspective adopter. I have personally observed how Brandi at great expense will keep dogs at the shelter for months until a suitable family is found. The integration of the two dogs that I adopted (each six months apart) went smoothly with family and home because of the commitment that is given to each dog that is taken in by Braveheart Rescue."

Braveheart Rescue Inc. operates solely on donations from the public and the fundraisers they hold throughout the year. So please come out on March 6 and support this great organization. Help them continue to do the work they obviously do so well. All donations are completely 100 percent tax deductible.
