Well that escalated quickly
Earlier this year we determined that one of our awesome kids was behind in verbal skills. We decided to be all proactive and whatnot and get her evaluated. She received some services at home with a speech therapist, which worked well, but that only lasted until she turned 3.
Now in a couple weeks she’ll be enrolled in school.
Green Acres Kennel Shop presents $3,187 to BARKK To End The Silence
BANGOR - Green Acres Kennel Shop has presented a check for $3,187 to Jenny Dwyer of the Paw It Forward Foundation and BARKK To End The Silence. The check is a result of Green Acres Kennel Shop’s first Cash For Your Cause fundraising event which occurred from June 1 through July 5. Green Acres Kennel Shop donated $1,000 after 279 clients and supporters throughout the state donated $2,187.
BARKK To End The Silence is an initiative of the Paw It Forward Foundation founded by Jenny Dwyer of Mutt Nose Best. Their mission is to raise awareness of domestic violence and to raise funds that will provide funding to equip local domestic violence shelters with designated “pet-friendly” rooms that have separate ventilation and outside fenced areas. Funds will also pay for veterinary care and emergency “get out” kits for families in violent relationships. Currently there are no domestic violence shelters equipped to house family pets in the state of Maine. Unfortunately, this causes those threatened with domestic violence to stay in life-threatening situations in an attempt to protect their pets.
