Don’t just Take your Dog for a Walk, Take your Walk for a Dog!
Walking your Dog just got a whole lot Better! Now you can Raise Money for ERU every time time you walk your dog!
Taking your dog for a walk is now not only good for you and your dog, it raises money to support all ERU foster dogs. The Take your Walk for a Dog program is a revolutionary Dog-powered fundraising tool for animal shelters that uses a free mobile App to promote healthy pets and healthy humans while raising money to support local shelters. ERU is partnering with WoofTrax, Inc., to introduce and promote the App in this area. “You walk your dog anyway,” says Mike Katz, Director of Community Relations for WoofTrax. “Now, for every mile you walk, we donate to to your local animal shelter.”
“There is no easier way to raise funds for our local shelter then using the app every time you grab for the leash!” says JoAnn Goldberger, Director of Development, Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Center, Baltimore, MD. Whether you are walking with your dogs or by yourself, the App is a way to keep track of your walks, encouraging you to walk more every day. That’s good for your health and your dog’s health. Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your walking directly benefits ERU.
You can click on the link above to access the App or go to the App Store and search for "Walk for a Dog". When setting up your account, click on Settings (or Set Up) and then Update. Click on any shelter name listed to change the shelter you are walking for. You will find Eskie Rescuers United under Littleton, Colorado. Thanks for your support!
Please help us help Jasper
This beautiful, sweet, gentle eskie boy just arrived into ERU-Maryland from another rescue group. Jasper is one of the eskies that was confiscated by animal control from a hoarder in TN in August 2013. ERU rescued four girls from this same hoarder - Barbie, Kelly, Twister, and Winnie. Jasper's brother Ike also was given to ERU and he is now being fostered in Maine.
Jasper spent the day with an orthopedic surgeon on 2/24 as it is obvious he has trouble with his back legs and is in terrible pain. X-rays showed that the left femur head is above (instead of inside) the hip socket and the right femur head is separated from the hip socket. Jasper will need femoral head ostectomy (FHO) on both legs. The left leg is the most severe and surgery will be done near the end of March. After Jasper recuperates from that surgery we will have the FHO done on the right leg too.
The surgeon is a friend and supporter of ERU and will perform the surgeries at a 50% discount. We would like to raise $2000-$2500 to cover the costs of the two surgeries and additional x-rays, medications, and physical therapy if needed. Please help us help Jasper have the healthy, pain-free life he deserves.
