Wisconsin Dog Rescue Boosted By Jordan’s Way
SALEM, Wisconsin. – Biggie Paws Rescue, a foster-home rescue dog in Salem, Wisconsin, recently became the first of eight Wisconsin rescues and shelters chosen to participate in a The Way of Jordan Charity Campaign: Complete the Shelters 50 State Tour.
Jordan’s Way founder Chris Rotonda started the association in honor of his rescue dog Jordan, who died in 2018.
“I decided that I was going to do something to remember [Jordan] and to raise awareness … to dogs that go unnoticed. There are so many animals in shelters and rescues. I like to bring attention to them, while fundraising at the same time, ”he says.
Rotonda is hosting a fun four-hour live Facebook event aimed at raising funds for shelters and rescues across the country.
“Rescue has been an all-time record for homeless animals. Everyone is home for work, so we are thrilled to be chosen, ”says Gina Defalco, director of Biggie Paws Rescue.
Biggie Paws rescues dogs from euthanasia lists and transports them to Wisconsin from Texas.
Since launching the foster home rescue seven months ago, Defalco and his team have rescued more than 300 dogs.
With help from Jordan’s Way, Biggie Paws raised $ 5,000. They will give 20% to Jordan’s Way and 80% will help directly with the rescue.
