Thunder Puppy K9 Rehab and Rehome
We are the only dog training institute in our state to offer Pack Therapy: a group of rescued dogs paying it forward to help troubled animals return to balance and have a second chance at life. Thunder Puppy has trained literally hundreds of dogs and their people over the past decade, and working mostly (but not exclusively) with Siberian Huskies, Sled Dogs, and Alaskan Malamutes, rehabilitated and rehomed over 100 dogs- out of their own pocket- since the year 2009. The success stories are many and extremely heartwarming—and that is why we do what we do!
We diligently worked through the year 2014 to obtain our Non-Profit Status and bought the snow dogs a home in beautiful Coal Creek Canyon with a huge (and expensive) escape-proof fence. Not that they want to escape- they've got it made! But as you know, living creatures are costly and it takes donations from YOU to keep them fed, vaccinated, trained, and "clothed". Our GoFundMe is an ongoing fundraiser so that we might continue to take at-risk dogs from shelters and owners who can no longer care for them, and find them perfect FurEva Homes. The average rehabilitation to rehoming takes six months. That's alot of kibble, time, patience, talent, and love.
The need in our community and state is HUGE and as of 2018, we are the only remaining Husky Rescue in our state. Thunder Puppy K9 Rehab and Rehome is passionate about doing our part by giving these discarded dogs a voice and a life that they deserve. We hope you will join us in our quest!
Happy Holidays! POST BOX 7480 GOLDEN 80403
Why am I wearing Hunter's Orange? Well, after 16 months, I discovered I can jump this totally expensive fence here on Campus and it makes me laugh. The Human? Not so much. She is all worried that if I get out one too many times, someone will shoot my ass cuz I look just that much like a wolf.
Now, she thinks she has a plan. Oh, Brother. She wants to install "Coyote Rollers' over the gates where it is (presumed) I am jumping. Do you all know what Coyote Rollers are? They are cylinders that would prevent me from gaining footage when I think I am all stealth-like and decide to 'escape'.
Check it out:
I do decide I like to escape- the other night, Human had to get in the car and go find me- I was already down on Twin Spruce while cars went whizzing by. Yeah, that was me. Funny Stuff.
Anyway, she says it's gonna cost like, $300 to start and wants your help and donations to keep me in. I don't know what all the hoopla is about- I'd probably come home on my own, but whatevs.
If you want to help my Human protect me, please give her your support. Frankly, I'm tired of wearing this stupid vest and being on a cable when she can't be with me directly. I don't understand the correlation- she is just a grumpy ol' meanie.
She says if she can get the support, I may be free to roam our half acre again without supervision.
We don't know much- only that they were dumped at the Weld County shelter with nearly no hope for survival. They hated humans. They trust no one.
It has taken over two months for me to be able to touch them let them out and exercise them , analyze them and figure out how I can best help.
Today, I FINALLY got them on Gentle Leaders (without getting bit) so that the true training can begin.
Here's our trouble: Our Go-To Groomer has agreed to try to bath and shave them as long as I work diligently with them over the next two weeks. Can you imagine even trying to bathe and shave these poor, inexperienced girls?
But my ladies- Connie and Linda are willing to try. We need to raise $200 to accomplish this feat. It is imperative that Pink and Hope get groomed and checked for parasites. Can you help? We'd love it if you could!
