She suffered much in silence, she kept her spirits high;
She never forgot the little souls in the shelters left to die.
She took them home and held them close;
Yes, this was the benevolent path she chose.
Up until the very end, she worried not about herself,
But about all the little dogs still left to be saved.
"Just one more, just one more. It's okay if they are not well behaved."
Tirelessly working until every last one was in his/her forever home.
WE CHERISH THE TIME ON EARTH WE HAD WITH YOU, CONNIE.
Now it's time for you to spend some time with all those little ones you cared for until their time had come ...
Connie founded the Colorado Peke & Pom Rescue in 2007. We will continue her legacy.
In lieu of flowers, we are asking for donations in Connie's name be made to her rescue ... The Colorado Peke & Pom Rescue, Inc.
The call came in 2011 … a retired woman had a beautiful young Pekingese named Baby Girl who suffered from daily seizures. “Baby” was less than 2 years old, and her future was uncertain due to the woman’s limited financial resources; she could not afford the medical care that Baby required.
CPPR agreed to take Baby into our foster program and get her the help she needed. While the daily medications prescribed by the Rescue’s vet helped Baby somewhat, she continued to have seizures 2-3 times a week, many of which lasted an hour or more. As a result, Baby was referred to a veterinary neurologist who performed extensive blood work, and a new regimen of daily medications was prescribed.
Today, Baby is an active, playful 4-year-old whose favorite thing to do is drop a tennis ball at the top of the stairs, watch it bounce all the way down, and then chase after it … once retrieved, she starts the whole game all over again! While she still continues to have seizures once or twice a month, they are no longer severe; the new medication regimen has done wonders for her.
Each May, Baby returns to the neurologist for her annual blood workup to assure that she’s on the right medications and dosage. These tests cost $750 annually in addition to her seizure medications which amount to $100 per month; all are paid by the Rescue from The Machika Fund, which was established to provide medical care for dogs in need like Baby Girl.
We are seeking donations and/or monthly sponsors to help with Baby Girl’s ongoing medical care. If you are able, please consider making a donation through the PayPal link at the top of this page, or send a check to Colorado Peke & Pom Rescue, Inc., PO Box 242, Morrison, CO 80465; please note on your check or your PayPal payment that your donation is for Baby Girl. CPPR is a Colorado 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your donation is tax-deductible as provided by law.
Thanks to support and donations from people like you, CPPR is making a BIG difference … one little dog at a time! Donate »
The Machika Fund
Created by the Rescue to help provide necessary—but often costly—medical care for our Special Need dogs, The Machika Fund aids injured animals needing immediate surgery as well as those requiring ongoing treatments which will allow them to live normal and fulfilled lives. The name of the Fund was inspired by a very special precious personality who has touched—and continues to touch—so many hearts and lives. A female Pekingese, Machika came to us when her owner died; she was still wearing a special tag that said "Therapy Dog." More »
Colorado Peke and Pom Rescue, Inc. has created a network of volunteers in all regions of Colorado to help transport and foster its Precious Personalities (adoptable dogs) until they are placed into forever homes. Our Precious Personalities come from local shelters, private homes, vet offices and as strays. Our goal is to be able to take in all of these precious dogs and find them the homes they deserve. Without volunteers, we will not be able to achieve that goal. More »
HAPPY NEW YEAR to our Friends & Volunteers!
As we approach our 7th anniversary, we can't help but reflect on what a great year 2012 was for the Rescue - and for so many little dogs whose lives were saved and who found their forever homes. As of the end of 2012, CPPR has rescued more than 1300 little dogs since its inception in 2007 - a number that truly amazes us!
2012 also brought us a number of new friends and volunteers who became a part of the CPPR family. To them we say "thank you!" and "welcome"! Volunteers really DO make a difference! More lives can be saved ... more little Precious Personalities get a second chance to live out their lives surrounded by love. Read more »
