A message from our friends at Final Frontier Rescue Project:
Friends, the dogs need your help.
We know this is a challenging time for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected just about every aspect of life. The Final Frontier dogs are sheltering in place while we all do our part to prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have twenty-one dogs in foster homes and seven in boarding kennels. Our dogs in boarding need you! Boarding and care during this crisis costs $25 per day for each dog, $10 for basic boarding and $15 for a training and enrichment session. Your gift of $10, $15, $25 or more will keep a dog safe and help him become more adoptable.
For example, Nick, rescued from San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter, has been learning what it's like to have a bed instead of a patch of dirt, in preparation for a new home as an indoor pet. And Buster, from Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, now loves wearing his muzzle, which will make it safer to take him to the vet and do other sensitive handling.
During shelter-in-place, we have just a few staff and one volunteer caring for the dogs in boarding so that we do not create unnecessary contact. Trainer Sarah works with the dogs at Wimberley Kennel to keep them socialized, happy, and learning.
We're committed to keeping our dogs as safe and happy as we can, and that means relying on boarding when we don't have a suitable foster home, and keeping up with training even when volunteers can't visit the dogs. Please consider helping our Final Frontier dogs through this period of crisis and uncertainty.
