Anonymous Bequest Helps Rural Rescue Kennel

Thanks to an anonymous bequest designated to help our region's homeless pets, a rescue kennel in Yerington, Nevada was able to expand their innovative "homelike" kennel concept. BARK is a small 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the care, socialization, and training of at-risk dogs. Safe Haven Rescue Kennel is the Rescue Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary facility devoted to each dog as an individual, focusing on a peaceful healthy living environment for them. Here is an excerpt from their grant report to bring you a smile. "...We are so excited to have built Cottage #6 in late 2018 located for easy accesses to meet with our short-term rescue and adoptable dogs or walk them out without disturbance from the other dogs. The Safe Haven ‘Concept-to-Reality’ transitions and raises the adoption rate to support more at-risk dogs.""Nothing proves our initiative better than a dog that leaves better than they arrived!"
