For 16 years, together, we have grown CPR.  From a very humble 25 dogs placed in our first year, we've now given hope, health and homes to over 5,000 dogs.  

 




Jasper is one of those men "of a certain age."  He is old enough to have seen a few things, yet young enough to have so much to give. It makes for a cute comedy situation but in the dog world, the age is of the number that isn't easily adopted.  

Jasper was found as a stray in Fayetteville, NC back in April.  Sweet, happy, lively and affectionate, the little miniature poodle acted like a puppy but he had cloudy eyes that told us he was older.  An assessment at a dog ophthalmologist confirmed age related cataracts and that is he most likely 10 to 11 years old.  His cataracts are growing so slowly that, were he human, he would be reaching for the reading glasses but otherwise you would not be able to tell a thing. 

As for his temperament, Jasper and I spent some time together in Raleigh during that cataract assessment and I got to know him.  He is a right proper gentlemanly little miniature, with great house manners and a gentle nature around other dogs.  He thoroughly enjoyed sniffing around a new yard with new smells (in vision impaired dogs we find their hearing and sense of smell is heightened), and he pulls a bit on a leash but settles down after he's gone on walk-about a bit.  When I needed an extra crate for a pickup and had to bump someone out of theirs, Jasper volunteered and settled down happily in the raised dog bed in the passenger seat and rode home with me, content and complacent.  

Miniature poodles can live to be as old as 15 or more years old.  Jasper has much life and love to give. He needs time to find the person who will look at age as just a number and think more of happy times ahead than of what is behind them both.  

Dogs live in the moment.  You can help Jasper find his moment and find a new life. 





 


We want to keep on making happy endings and being the place dogs like Angel can come to heal.  To do so our goal is simple.  1,000 patrons.  $ 25 per month.  

At CPR we offer a haven since in our world, animals have no way to supply for themselves the basics of food, shelter and care.  We offer companion animals an end to suffering and loneliness by finding for them caring people like you who offer them a home or by providing them a home with us.  In exchange, they give us their love, their affection and their loyalty. 
Your support means we can keep on helping those who have no voice and no choice.

For 16 years, together, we have grown CPR.  From a very humble 25 dogs placed in our first year, we've now given hope, health and homes to over 5,000 dogs.  

As we've grown and matured, we've become the place where those who need more can find it.  That may be anything from extensive surgery to simple vaccines.  It is from offering a long term home with us to finding a home perfect for them.  

What we have given them most of all is very simple - time.  

We have asked you for many things in our 16 years.  We ask for donations for surgeries and for buildings, for equipment and for vehicles, for gas money and for food and you give.  We ask you for your talents and you volunteer.  Thank you.
 
What we have not asked for in a long time is money to buy time - time to let us continue to give time.  It's time to ask.

CPR's patrons program is our sustained giving program and it is our patrons who buy us time.  CPR has grown to the point that we can't continue our mission nor can we grow unless we have more sustaining donors buying us that time.  Our request is simple - $ 25 per month.  Our goal is huge -1,000 donors each giving at least $ 25 per month.  At $ 25 per month, our team will have the time they need to do what needs to be done to help each dog.  One by one.
 
Form now til the end of the year, callers will be reaching out to our adopter base with one request. Please join our patrons group.  Become a donor at $ 25 per month and watch CPR grow.  Watch us give even more dogs time.  The time they need to heal.  We'll keep calling until we hit that huge goal for none of us can stand the thought of not giving our dogs what they need - time.  We're hoping you agree.  Stay tuned to our Facebook page and our web page for updates on our goal.  

Why do we need time?  Over the next 4 weeks I will be introducing you to 4 dogs we've helped or are helping. These dogs needed time.  We gave it to them.  My hope, as you read their stories, is that you will help us to give more time to dogs just like these.  




Dogs like Angel

Angel arrived at the poodle farm in September of 2011, just a few days after her first birthday.  Bred to be a service dog, Angel was in training when her teachers noticed she couldn't keep up with her siblings.  Medical work revealed the worst news possible - the poodle had a very severe case of hip dysplasia. She was washed up and washed out at 10 months old.

Angel was returned to her breeder.  Unable to be sold as a pet, unable to be bred for this is a genetic condition, Angel was a liability.  Without the resources to keep her, and faced with possibly having to terminate her life, the breeder reached out for another option. She was turned down repeatedly by rescues closer to her Minnesota home, but was told help may be in the south so she called a group a long way from her - a group she had heard might take a chance on a girl who had no chance and no future otherwise. I listened to the story and then listened to my heart.  Angel came to us.

About a year and much fundraising later, Angel was in surgery at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.  Angel got a new hip and is now quite the mobile girl.  Her foster family adopted her.  Happy ending - end of story right?
Not quite - for Angel's foster mom had a need for a service dog of her own.  Battling Multiple Sclerosis is difficult but good service dogs are hard to find and foster mom felt that others needed more than she did so did not look for one of her own.  Yet as she helped Angel through her medical needs, a miracle was taking place.  Even with her hips still bad, Angel started offering her foster mom emotional support when days were bad.  She would pick things up when hands could not quite grasp well.  She became a resource, a strength and more than a companion.  She became what she was meant to be - a service dog to the very same woman who was there for her when she needed it the most.

Now that's a happy ending. 
Angel's family wants to make sure more Angel's get what they need.  When I was interviewing them for this follow up, both signed up as patrons.  I am so glad to have their help.
