Angie Lewis, Vice President ADPR
Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue would like to thank those who donated via the
2013 Pick, Click, Give. Alaskans pledged $61,850 in support of our mission
to help Alaska's dogs and puppies in need and to support the Alaska canine
community. Without your generosity, Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue could not
The services we provide are vital. Each year, we rescue dogs from all over
the state, place hundreds of dogs in forever homes, provide low cost spay
and neuter clinics to the public, fund medical care to dogs desperately in
need, donate dog food to local food banks to help people who might
otherwise have to give up their dogs, and more. We've been able to fund a
permanent office from which we will be able to plan for even more community
services in the future. Our mission would not be possible without Pick,
Click, Give and the Alaskans who choose to share with us and with Alaska's
dogs in need.
We thank you again for your donations, and hope that you remember ADPR in
the years to come.
Alaska Dog & Puppy Rescue (ADPR) sadly bids farewell to one of our own, Kari Lyndsey. Kari passed away recently, leaving a huge hole in the hearts of ADPR volunteers. Kari tirelessly championed for the welfare of dogs and puppies throughout Alaska. Despite enduring many health problems of her own, Kari continued to put dogs first. She served ADPR in many capacities - as a board member, a volunteer, a foster home provider, and a participatant for special events.
Her celebration of life service will be 2pm on Thursday, Jan 17th at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
You may have noticed that Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue has not been as active in recent months. This is due, in part to resignation of several board members and dedicated volunteers. Since 2005, ADPR has grown in leaps and bounds; but with that growth comes the need for more volunteer time. ADPR has been blessed over the years with people willing to put their own lives on hold as they take on more and more ADPR responsibilities - until they finally need to step aside and make time for themselves. We are all volunteers and are grateful for all of the time and effort from each and every volunteer. Together ADPR volunteers have helped in saving over five thousand of Alaska's homeless dogs. Changes in volunteers have resulted in opportunities to do some regrouping and organization to ensure that we are not only meeting the needs of homeless dogs but also the needs of our volunteers. And oh boy, ADPR is on the move!
