From Jennifer Weg, Teacher, East Irondequoit Middle School: "This transport is sponsored by East Irondequoit Middle School in honor of our school mascot, Lancer. I am a grade 7/8 Language/Literature teacher at the school, and my students and I had been talking about my precious Gomez and their own rescued animals. So we thought that sponsoring a transport from a kill shelter would be a great way to give back! Students sold beads and stickers for the holidays with funds going toward our goal to sponsor a life-saving run. We put together gift baskets with donations from local businesses (Park Ave Pub and Restaurant, Shop Peppermint). My mom Rita Weg, School Counselor Peg England, and sixth grade teacher Kim Rovitelli sold raffle tickets to adults at the school to add to the cause. It was a team effort with a large group of very enthusiastic, compassionate students and adults, and we are so honored to say that East Irondequoit Middle School "came to the rescue"!!!
Honey was born about May 11, 2014 and will probably top out about 20 lbs. when she fills out. She is excellent with the other dogs and wonderful with all of us. She ended up at the shelter with two little pups who are just as sweet as her, sadly, only one came north. She seems to be a move in easy kind of dog, she goes with the flow. Please understand that we have no prior knowledge of this dog and we will be learning as we go and so will you.The Adoption Fee for this dog is $325.00.
