Community outreach is one way we can all have a healthier more humane community!  Our rescue organization, Ring Dog Rescue, works tirelessly to help not just the adoptable dogs in our program, but the dogs in need from our Virginia community.  Our outreach programs provide proper dog houses, straw, food, medical care, and spay and neuter services to help promote proper animal husbandry.  We are asking for your help!  By making a donation through this GoFundMe account, any and all donations will go to helping animals in need, these funds Do Make A Difference; reducing companion animal over-population through spay and neuter, giving animals warmth and shelter through the Dog House Project, getting dogs OFF of Chains by building proper fencing enclosures, and aiding companion animals by assisting those who cannot afford services but truly do care for their companion.  Educating the public on proper animal husbandry gets to the root of our over filled shelters and reduces euthanasia in our communities.  Please help us help these less fortunate animals.  While we would prefer they all live inside in healthy happy homes the reality is many do not, help us help them!

While out doing our Christmas deliveries we discovered three dogs in desperate need of help. We made contact with the guardians and went back today with two insulated and custom built dog houses, straw, food, proper bowls, and a little education. We replaced a vari kennel/airplane crate that one poor dog had as his dog house that was broken and filled with water. We were also able to get the guardian to agree to spay the two female dogs chained outside (one being a 10 pound Pomeranian) and we're hopeful he will allow us to neuter the male as well. This is how donations made to this program are used. Please consider making a monthly donation towards this program...there are countless animals that need our help.

Well thanks to the rain our Christmas deliveries were postponed until today, but today was a very Merry Christmas for 16 dogs, one rabbit, and a feral cat colony! The dogs received food, beds, treats, straw, and bones, love, pets, and kisses! We even met 3 news dogs we will be delivering houses and straw to this week. The feral kitties received new straw for their cat houses! With the colder weather approaching this week we're thankful for the donations and volunteers that made this possible. Keep it coming...
Bear loves her new bed so much we had s hard time getting it in her house!

This holiday season please take a moment to remember dogs like this one. We've been working for a year with her owner and have been able to improve her outdoor living conditions considerably by getting her off of the chain and into a kennel, a proper insulated dog house, spay, food, flea treatments, straw, appropriate food and water buckets, toys, etc. Despite our continuous efforts seeing her is heartbreaking. Dogs are social pack animals, and they consider their "guardian" a part of their pack. Remember when taking on the responsibility of guardianship there is more to it then just providing food, water, and shelter. More than anything dogs need COMPANIONSHIP, EXERCISE, and MENTAL STIMULATION, which we cannot provide enough of. If you're interested in walking an outreach dog on a consistent basis and helping provide what their guardians do not please contact us!

This guy is one of my favorite dogs. It took me almost a year to get him to warm up to me but now he gets so excited when he knows we've come to take him for a walk and clean his kennel!

This is his water :(
