“Ring. Ring. Ring...”
“Hello, this is Dudley”
“Is this Bluff Animal Rescue?”
“Yes it is”
“ I’m traveling from__________ to _________ and I have this
“We have no place to put it. Thanks to generous support from
donors, BARC can supply food, collars, leashes, a dog carrier,
vaccines, and spay/neuter for every fostered dog. But,
unfortunately, we have no place to put it right now.”
Damn,I get so tired of repeating this!
Recently, 2 friendly dogs followed a horse from McCracken Mesa
to Bluff and decided to spend a night at Recapture Lodge. With
the help of Lois’s email to our community, the owners were
notified and picked up the dogs the very next day.That was a
good thing because we had no fosters available.
The Simpsons have continued to foster a gentle German short
hair pointer for the entire month of May, but, after a full year of
foster care, they are done when this dog moves. Al Gerecke and
Kathy Smith have been fostering a gentle pit bull all month. The
Mormon Church has decided not to foster.We have been
boarding 3 dogs for 3 months at $50.00/month.
Being a foster is a lot of work, and it can continue for months.
We need to know ahead of of time if someone will foster so we
will know who to call when the next stray shows up.
Suppose every family in Bluff agreed to be a foster once each
year, or once every 2 years, or three. If that were to occur, we
wouldn’t have a problem. Hey! Maybe there is a village in the
town of Bluff. If not,.......?
In this month we have adopted 3 dogs. Ann Brown has provided
2 transports to Underdog in Moab. We have vaccinated 16
puppies, and travelled 815 miles to deliver 934 pounds of dog
I haven’t heard what the Town of Bluff plans to do about the dog
Stay tuned. BARC is grateful for all the financial support.
