Foundation has been a Nonprofit
Canine Rescue since 2003. While
we are still rescuing canines on a small scale, we have concentrated
our efforts the past few years in proactive approach. This
entails looking at the “Big Picture” and realizing
unless we stop the in-flow of homeless cats and dogs into municipal
shelters, we will never
be able to provide rescue to them all.
Sunburst Foundation had a very successful grant program through an
anonymous benefactor in which $5000 was used to provide spay/neuter
services to around 50 canines. These were owned canines only
targeted for this grant meaning that they were among the biggest
contributors to canine overpopulation in the Pender County area
the verse goes,
“Helping one dog won’t change the world, but it
will change the world for that dog.”
This is how our community can work together to make this a reality, 1
pet at a time.
Lola is really desperately wanting a
family of her own.
She plays well
with docile male dogs that give her some space. She loves her people
and really wants to be your special girl. Please

A MINUTE TO TAKE ACTION?
FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP A SHELTER DOG:
YOU HAVE 1 MINUTE - Share at
least one post of a dog in need of help.
IF YOU HAVE 5
MINUTES - Open your linen
closet and remove the sheets & towels you no longer use. Throw
them into a bag and leave them by your front door to drop off at the
shelter the next time you go out.
IF YOU HAVE 20
MINUTES - Create a flier to post
in local pet shops listing all free/low-cost spay and neuter programs
in your area.
IF YOU HAVE AN
ENTIRE DAY - Visit your local
shelter and ask how you can help. Inquire about their volunteer program
and meet some of the staff. Then, get to work!
IF YOU HAVE THE
GIFT OF TIME THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
- Volunteer regularly at your local shelter. Run donation drives in
your area. Contact your elected officials and encourage them to fight
BSL. Bring your Pit Bull into the community and educate others on the
AWESOMENESS that is the ‘breed’. Think outside of
the box, gets your hands dirty, and MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.
And then look into
the eyes of a shelter dog knowing that you just made difference.
