Today is GIVING TUESDAY- a day to contemplate after the shopping frenzies of Cyber Monday and Black Friday,  and think on the charities most dear to you, and give back a little.

We have also been trying to raise funds to pay down our vet bill by the end of the year. We have a Facebook event called “NO LEG BREAKS in 2013” (hoping that enough good wishes will make it so!)

Our balance at the vet at this very moment is: $1407.  If you would like to make a donation toward our goal, TODAY would be a great day to do it. We are continuing our fundraiser through the end of the year or until the balance is 0.

And we aren’t sure we won’t have more dogs coming in!

It’s been a pretty crazy month here. We have had another leg break (Miss Janie) and several visiting dogs, and we have taken in a long term foster, until her family can reclaim her. And have welcomed Blake (formerly Red) into the fold. He is being fostered by Kelly in OKC.

This morning I got a call from a fellow rescue person in Missouri that one of the smaller mills is getting out of iggies. There are three girls and a boy – I have no idea of age or shape- that need to come into rescue, and nowhere to put them.

Maggie Lenertz has been working in rescue with Italian Greyhounds for 10 years. Three years ago, Maggie married Jim. Together they have built Hazeljane's Blessings into a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charity in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At any given time, we have between 7-12 foster Italian Greyhounds in our home, along with our own 4 babies. In addition, we both work full time. Maggie's hobbies (apart from iggies) are quilting and reading. She frequently makes quilts to raffle to support the rescue!
