A Simple Wish

Healthcare Design & Construction invites you to join us in supporting The Little Red Dog.

A terminally ill young man made a simple wish.
Javier, a 15-year-old boy, suffered from cancer. He and his family learned his diagnoses turned terminal in December of 2015. When Miracle of Kids asked him what he wished for, he said he wanted a puppy! Miracle of Kids asked TLRD for assistance. Together we made his wish a reality. Minnie, Javier’s sweet puppy, brought joy to him and his family during his last few weeks of life. Sadly, Javier passed away just a month after Minnie became a part of their family. However, the time she spent with Javier remains treasured. She’s a true inspiration and positive reminder of him for his family. Here’s the video of his story:
Dogs are man’s best friend, but it’s not always the other way around. The Little Red Dog was founded in memory of a Little Red American Pit Bull Terrier who didn’t make it. The Michael Vick dog fighting case reveals the Little Red Dog was brutally beaten to death by Vick and his cronies, because she chose not to fight. In addition, fifty-plus other dogs were confiscated from Vick. Most were rehabilitated. Our mission is to rescue dogs from high kill shelters and find them loving, forever homes. Many of the dogs we rescue are lovable, friendly creatures desperate for compassion. Our rescue workers transform pups from victims of animal cruelty and abandonment into healing caregivers themselves, unleashing priceless hope. Join us in opening our hearts and minds to these creatures, if you do, they’ll give you much in return.
