The Mortgage Center

We had an amazing day today with the awesome people from the Mortgage Center! Several months ago they offered to put on a garage sale and donate all the proceeds to Windy City Canine Rescue! They had collected 4 trailers, one basement and a hallway full of donations from the generous people in our area. It was a ton of work for them to load, unload, display, sell and pack away all of the items in the plus 30 degree weather and we can't thank them enough. Through it all they were smiling and having a great time bartering with all the customers. We don't have a definite total yet, but the preliminary count has us smiling! Thank you again to the Mortgage Center and everyone who came out to support our rescue! We would encourage anyone looking for a mortgage to give these great people a call! For more information please click on the "Mortgage Center" title of this post.

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.). If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren't looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation. Thank you.

I often think there's no hope for this tired, abused old world of ours, but perhaps...
