Dog Rescue features local heroes in fundraising calendar
GREEN BAY, WB (WBAY) – Less than 40 days until Christmas and holiday shopping is already underway. A local dog rescue hopes you’ll keep them in mind – as you look forward to the New Year.
Rich Longcore is an engineer / paramedic with the Green Bay Underground Fire Department, but you can just call him Mr. May.
âOh my God, what did I do to myself,â Longcore said. âI can’t wait to see what happens.
Longcore is one of more than a dozen Brown County firefighters from Ashwaubenon, Suamico, Lawrence, Ledgeview, Bellevue, De Pere and Allouez on the 2022 Fire & Fur calendar.
âThose dogs were helpless and helpless out there, and an organization like this comes along and big open hearts, take care of them and how can you not support something like that,â says Longcore.
The calendar is a fundraiser for Mit Liebe German Shepherd Dog Rescue. Meaning “with love” in German, Mit Liebe saves abandoned or surrendered German Shepherds. The organization takes care of the dogs both physically and mentally.
According to volunteer Anna Snyder, “We welcome them and we try and if there are behavioral issues that we need to work on, we try to deal with them and then we find a loving home for the dog.”
Obviously, such care is not free, so the rescue has set the schedule. Available at Brown County Festival Foods stores, at the service counter for $ 20, and on the Mit Liebe website, sales will not only help support the organization’s mission, but will also reward the brave men and women of the service. local fire.
Volunteer Christina Toonen said: âIt was so much fun, we had so much fun and we had so much fun that we are going to do it again next year and we will continue to do it because we really like to introduce all of our local heroes. . . ”
And of course the dogs, which, thanks to the calendar exhibit, could help publicize Mit Liebe and hopefully permanent homes for other rescued puppies.
