Recently, we received a bequest from the McMahon Family Trust. The accompanying letter noted that “Marion possessed a love for open space, native plants and Heidi, her German Shorthaired Pointer. Marion enjoyed viewing your website and loved reading the stories about each dog. Marion had 18 GSPs over her lifetime. She did a bit of rescuing of her own over the years. Please accept this gift from Marion to continue helping GSPs find homes.”
A bequest that we received shortly after we formed as a non-profit group allowed us to pay for two extensive orthopedic surgeries and follow-up care for Tumbleweed and Tre. The total cost of over $10,000 would have drained our coffers completely. In addition, the gift funded our main telephone number for ten years, as part of the donor’s wish that persons hoping to adopt a GSP would have a way to reach us.
Thank you to these wonderful donors for their legacy of generosity.
