12 Sled Dogs Need Support

My friend, Aimee Leclerc lost her husband, to Cancer last week at the young age of 44. He was passionate about his dogsledding outfit They do not have children, instead they share their home with their now 12 sled dogs who are without a doubt their family. Aimee has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds of her own in the last year and a half and she is a fighter to the core. To lose her husband and partner, has also meant losing the father of their dogs and the financial means to feed and care for them. 
Just yesterday,  Aimee had to put down one of their best friends- in the same week as losing Her husband. There is no doubt Grommet, Rockit, Kaya, Duke, Tonka, Sheila, Eiger, Lulu, Bandit, Ice, Blizzard, and Billy are feeling the loss and frustration that Aimee is enveloped in and missing Ben. 

While she would never ask for it, and is feeling uncomfortable with this page, Aimee needs help to support and keep her family in tact, and to continue to care for her husbands four legged friends, his passion and memory alive. Aimee spends more on dog food monthly than most of us spend on rent or even our mortgage. Every dollar is helpful. I don't want Aimee to lose any more family, her house, and I would like to ease her stress if only a little as she has done for me and so many other people in her years as a mental health professional, an Outward Bound Instructor and Outdoor educator. Her husband worked all through his illness until his u timely death. He was a gift to all who knew him. Thank you for your love and support u til Aimee figures
Out her next step.
