OUR HERO!!

Dave Fear was like a brother to my husband Keith and he and his wife Terry are extremely close to both of us.  Dave Fear and Keith Forrest have known each other, and have been best friends for almost 50 years.  

Dave died trying to help save his elderly neighbor (85) from a vicious dog attack while walking her small dog.

He is our HERO and one of the most selfless men we have ever met.  He was also a true animal lover in every sense of the word.  This was all a part of who he was.

His adored wife will need our help!  


Here is the link to just one of the many reporters covering this horrific story of our dearest friend.

May God Bless You for your kind and thoughtful donations!!

Please trust the GoFundMe account and me. We loved Dave and Terri is our dear friend. We will be mailing a check to Terri every Tuesday as the money is deposited. I have used GoFundMe for many dog rescue fundraisers in the past and know that they are a very trustworthy company. Once Terri is ready, I will get her info and list it on the account. Thank you again for your support!

To those who have made a donation, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart! For those of you who have not had the chance yet, please help when you can. It honestly doesn't matter whether your donation is $5.00 or $500.00, every penny counts at this point.

Terri, Dave's wife, is going to need these donations for a great attorney and living expenses for the next few months. SHE needs all of our help during this horrible time. PLEASE help me, help her. God Bless all of you for your support!

I am very sorry to say that our beloved friend Dave Fear has lost his battle. He has passed. His wife Terry will need these gifts more than ever now towards attorney fees to go after this irresponsible dog owner! I want to thank everyone who has already made a donation and ask those who have not to PLEASE donate what you can to help our grieving friend. God Bless
