The first dog rescue in August of 2023 occurred at the Valley of the Gods Bed and Breakfast when Claire was finally able to lure a large male dog into her house and get a collar on it. This dog had avoided all efforts to catch it since it arrived with its brother in February of this year. We had been successful in catching the brother several months earlier. This was the first time, however, that we were able to catch this one, put in a carrier, and take to join its brother on the Rez at its foster home at miles 12 south of Bluff.
The second rescue occurred when Jack, a stray first noticed by Ann Leppanen near her house was finally accepted and taken to Underdog in Moab. Prior to that transfer, Jack had adopted Al Gerecke and Kathy Smith in April and happily played with their other four dogs. The food was good so Jack was content to stay where he was until 5 strays got to be too much for Al and Kathy to handle. They asked Amber from Underdog if they could take him off their hands. Underdog came to the rescue.
The third and fourth rescues occurred when Paul and I drove to Dennehotso to pick up two juveniles that had been on Underdog’s list for two months until the foster ran out of dog food.
The next four rescues occurred when Paul and I went back to Dennehotso to pick up a mom dog and three juveniles that previously had escaped capture. Paul drove them all the way to Moab that day because it was hot and we had no place to house them overnight.
In August, we travelled 180 miles to transport and deliver 567 pounds of dog food. And then ... Our plan now is to stockpile more dog food and put some pens in the yard at the old elementary school in preparation for the Eclipse.
We will need help with that, and more donations to purchase more dog food.
Thank you everyone in advance,
