Lucky's Matching Challenge!

I am very pleased to announce that we have met the $2,500 matching challenge for Lucky, the basenji in Tennessee with a broken leg.

In fact, we far exceeded the challenge amount and received donations to date totaling $9444!

Below is a list of all of our donors for this challenge. I also want to recognize Lucky's foster parents, Allan and Dawn Atkinson (who also donated) and her adopter, Laurel Martin, who sent the attached photo of Lucky with his new best friend.

We plan to use all of the extra money to pay for the vet bills of our some of our other expensive dogs---including four basenjis from Reliance, Tennessee who have been treated for Heartworm, and Tyco in Las Vegas who also had a broken leg. Remaining funds will be used for other BRAT dogs in need.

Thank you to everyone who donated in this challenge!

A note from Lucky's adopter, Laurel Martin:
We are so excited to add Lucky to our household. Getty is enjoying getting her to run the B500 and seems to be very attentive to her. While they are still trying to figure out the exact pecking order (our money is on her!), things seem to be moving along very smoothly. We are so grateful to all the love and attention that Dawn Atkinson and her foster family gave her as she was recovering from surgery. She was truly lucky to have them respond when she was first hit by the car.
