What a brilliant program

After a good deal of research, Manning found only a handful of organizations nationwide that offered support to owners to help them keep their pets. By June last year, Fairy DogParents was up and running. “When people say those words, ‘I’m bringing my dog to a shelter because I can’t afford to take care of him,’ that’s when Fairy DogParents comes in,’’ she said.

Manning operates with just a couple of volunteers, storing supplies at her home and making most deliveries herself. “We’re still small enough where I can name every single dog we’ve had,’’ she said.

To date, the group has helped 32 dogs stay in their homes.

Thanks for sharing!! Imagine how many owner surrenders this could save.

I would also like to remind people to donate pet food to their local food pantries too.

FYI... It's FairyDogParents.ORG, not FairyDogParents.COM.

The latter is a pet sitting business.

Remember, Dogs have owners. Cats have Staff...
