In Memory of Carl Pennauchi

As many of you already know, our dear friend, Carl Pennauchi, has passed away at the very young age of 34. He will be remembered for many things; being a great son, brother, partner and friend. He had one of the kindest souls a person can possess.

To that end, for those of you who do not know, Carl loved animals as much as he loved people. He was an owner of six adopted dogs whose lives were saved because of him and his girlfriend, Stefanie. He was not just an owner of dogs, he and Stefanie also pursued their passion for animals by donating their time to help animals in need. One of the rescue facilities where they worked was called the Big Dog Ranch Rescue (14444 Okeechobee Blvd, Loxahatchee, FL 33470). He rescued a countless number of dogs; this was a very important life mission to him.

In remembrance of Carl, and his life’s passion, we are attempting to meet a minimum of a $10,000 goal, to be donated to Big Dog Ranch, on his behalf. His close friends and family cannot meet this goal alone. We are asking for your help to keep this cause, that was so near and dear to Carl’s heart, alive. Every dollar counts, so we encourage you to pass this on to as many friends and family as you can.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. We hope you can help us achieve our goal and keep Carl’s legacy and life’s work alive! He is smiling down on us all right now.
